Mindfulness practices such as yoga and meditation are commonly referred to as the number one resource for relieving stress and anxiety. Research is proving that both can have a powerful impact on brain function, nervous system regulation and physical pain relief. But for many of us, the concept of meditation is so elusive that these benefits feel theoretical or unachievable. Some may feel they don’t have the patience to “sit still” and in turn causes more anxiety. How does one get from a theoretical understanding of mindfulness to practical and consistent application methods that achieve results? This session will introduce the basics of yoga and meditation with practical applications including how to employ these techniques while on-the-job i.e. in the cab of an ambulance or sitting in a lively office environment. These techniques will be broken down, practiced and yours to keep.
