Mindfulness Meditation ~ A Means to Managing Life
What does it mean to be “mindful”? Dictionary.com‘s definition is “attentive, aware, careful”. Seems simple enough, right? But how often do we pass through life not paying attention, unaware, and therefore, functioning in a rather careless manner?
We have an upcoming workshop at Sunrise Yoga Studio that brings yoga and mindfulness meditation together! Why? Here’s what Susan Grant, co-leader of the workshop, has to say about it:
“Mindfulness training teaches us to be present in every moment of our lives….even those moments that are filled with difficult emotions. As we practice mindfulness, we develop the ability to stay present, open-hearted, and compassionate with ourselves and those in our lives who may be “difficult.” We will use our yoga practice to bring our mindfulness practice into our everyday life and activity. We will experience first-hand the truism that how we are on the mat is how we are off the mat.“
Susan is a psychologist in private practice and founder of The Mindfulness Center of Asheville. She combines cognitive therapy and mindfulness training in her work with individuals and with groups. She, along with Cindy Dollar, owner and senior teacher at One Center Yoga of Asheville, and the co-author of Yoga Your Way, brings to us yoga poses to increase strength and flexibility in hips, hamstrings, and back designed to make sitting easier, even in a chair, and mindfulness practices that will develop the ability to focus attention, giving more choices responding to the events and stresses of daily life.
We invite you to join Susan and Cindy on Saturday, July 12th, from 1:00-5:00 pm to learn more (or enhance what you already know!) about mindfulness meditation. Space is limited and, if you sign up before June 28th, you can save yourself $10!
