Flow is an optimal state where we feel and perform at our best, creativity and productivity soar!
Once you have become more skillful in mindfulness, you increase your chances of 'finding flow', a state of heightened focus, feeling fully alive and fully engaged in whatever you're doing. This workshop theme will address how to practice mindfulness in order to achieve more moments of flow in your day and to be the best 'you' you can be.
It's challenging to stay committed to your mindfulness practice....we get bored, frustrated, forgetful, busy, or distracted. This workshop topic shares some tricks to sustaining your practice for the long hall. Set appropriate expectations and intentions, try a new approach (moving meditation), learn a variety of breath practices (pranayama), and discover mantras (recite a word/phrase in a rhythmic pattern) to help spice up your mindfulness practice and keep your commitment to mind-body health.

Learn how you can live like a Yogi, dispel past stereotypes and begin to invite more balance, self-discipline, energy, meditation, kindness, and peace into your life.

Family yoga is a time to move, breathe, stretch, smile and laugh together....as we receive and appreciate many health benefits as well!!
