Mindfulness Based Training Program
A significant body of evidence points to mindfulness and mind-body interventions as effective means for reducing anxiety, depression, and perceived stress while increasing empathy, self-compassion, and gaining a greater sense of calm and well-being. The inherent stress that can arise in the work of being a nurse or doctor can create burnout. You learn to transform stressful situations by going through them in a skillful way as a means of getting beyond them. The program incorporates mind-body awareness interventions such as the formal practices of Meditation, Yoga, Breathing techniques, Mindful listening, and Mindful walking. No previous meditation or yoga experience necessary. If you have physical limitations or are working with an injury, we can modify poses for you
