A new Mindful Living Workshop will be introduced to the MWR Fitness Center starting October 15th! The first class is free (Oct 15th) and thereafter it is $20 per class. Classes meet on Tuesdays at 10:15am.

Have you ever been stressed because of work, family, relationships and all the other normal experiences we struggle with? If so, mindfulness may be for you! The purpose of these workshops is to introduce life-long skills that can help reduce the stress of everyday life. Mindfulness is not new and scientists all over the world are continually researching the practices that have been around for thousands of years, giving you an opportunity to experience it for yourself.

Mindfulness is about noticing the moment between when something happens and how you react to it - the pause in which you are able to re-calibrate so that you can choose to respond, rather than react. When responding it is as if time slows down and your ability to be mindful, aware, kind and compassionate becomes more readily available. It is not about fixing anything just giving you tools to manage difficult situations as they arise. As with any new experience, it requires practice and an openness for kindness to oneself.
