Mindfulness, Meditation, and Yoga

Mindfulness and meditation guides us to experience the present moment, whatever the moment may bring, with non-judgment and basic kindness to the self.  Practicing mindfulness increases self awareness, as well as awareness of the world around you.

Learn mindfulness in a relaxed, one-on-one setting, where you can enjoy being in a quiet natural seaside setting.

After an initial meeting, sessions are tailored to meet your unique needs and fit into your lifestyle. Sessions typically combine practices, information, and discussion. You will learn strategies for developing a sustaining personal practice. Frequency of sessions is determined by you.

Research demonstrates that consistent practice of mindfulness may help:

  • Reduce stress
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Increase focus and attention
  • Increase tolerance for difficult feelings
  • Increase compassion and empathy
  • Improve overall health and sense of wellbeing
