Present Moment Mindfulness
Thursday, October 27th 2016 – 7pm – 8pm
Marisa Chadbourne, LMT, JFB MFR Therapist
Our minds are almost always one step ahead of being in the present moment. We are easily distracted in a fast paced world filled with computers, gadgets, and to-do-lists that need to get done! The real connection to ourselves and others happens when we are fully present in the moment. In this workshop, you will learn mindfulness observation exercises along with centering breathing techniques. Marisa will start the evening with a 20-minute beginner guided meditation followed by a group discussion on the power of presence. Please bring a pillow and a yoga mat if you have one.

Meditation & Restorative Yoga with Essential Oils
Thursday, November 10th 2016 – 7:30pm – 9pm
Nina Iannizzi Triolo
This restorative yoga practice begins with a 10 minute guided meditation with to calm the mind while bringing focus to the present moment. Restorative yoga is a relaxing, revitalizing and meditative yoga practice. Rather than actively positioning yourself in poses, you will learn how to “receive the pose” with the support of props, while your mind is reminded to slow down and notice the breath. During this class your body is fully supported in poses for 5-10 minutes with various props such as bolsters, blankets, straps and blocks. Essential oils and Reiki will be used on specific areas of the body and chakras (energy centers) to aid in this healing restoration. If you live in a stressful state most of your day, this class will help you to actively release that stress in a blissful state between consciousness and sleep.
