Upcoming Community Meeting

Community Meeting with Heidi Bornstein

Providing Guidance for Mindful Yoga & Movement.

Thursday, September 13th, 2018

7pm-9:30pm

Mount Sinai Hospital,
600 University Avenue Toronto, Ontario
14th Floor Classroom (near the elevators)

Mindful yoga, also known as mindful movement, is the third major formal meditation technique, along with the body scan and sitting meditation, that is included in the Mindful-Based Interventions – MBSR MBCT SMART and a variety of other variations on the original program created by Jon Kabat-Zinn in the 80s.
For many participants and practitioners, mindful movement is an accessible doorway into living wisely, a valuable resource for conscious living. Not all mindfulness facilitators are trained in yoga, and this course will provide an opportunity to be able to provide authentic, safe guidance for Mindful Yoga & Movement practices as well as series of alternate yoga and movement flows and series that can be included in Mindfulness-Based Interventions.
 
Heidi will provide an overview and experiential practice for the upcoming Mindful Yoga Teacher Certification 200+hour Training being offered by Mindfulness Everyday in Toronto.
