About this Event

Mindfulness is a traditional mental practice in Buddhism and Yoga that has been at the forefront of scientific research in recent years, and been clinically tested in more than 4,000 studies and has been helpful in dealing with a wide range of physical and psychological problems. This is a nonjudgmental awareness, consistently directed at what is happening here and now.

For most of us, it happens unexpectedly, sometimes while walking on the beach, or while we are focused on a job or a task when we don’t think about the past or the future.

This state of full and complete presence at the present moment is always available to us but usually eludes us, especially in periods of difficulty, external change or pressure.

Mindfulness practice is a combination of meditation, body and mind awareness, and simple yoga poses. Learning is done by practicing and observing how the body handles (and can solve) neurological stress in a state of change, stress and uncertainty.

​This workshop follows a body-mind secular approach from the yoga perspective, based on traditional knowledge supported by the latest research.

Advantages of Practicing Mindfulness :

Mindfulness development helps to overcome automatic cognitive and behavioural patterns that lead to stress, anxiety and burnout.

Mindfulness meditation training not only creates a sense of calm but also sharpens the ability to observe mental processes, identify triggers for automatic responses, and allow greater flexibility in the ways of responding to life events.

It has been shown that even 8 weeks of Mindfulness training are sufficient to reduce stress and anxiety. Research on the effects of Mindfulness suggests that practice is a contributing factor to empathy, creativity, self-awareness, well-being and happiness.
