MBSR Course Information
a mid-winter 8 week program at the Yoga Connection
Life can be stressful - especially in the doldrums of mid-winter. What if we could, instead, just stop in the middle of the weather of our lives, step outside of it, and see our lives more calmly and clearly? This 8 week Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program is based on such a liberating view. MBSR means “Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction”. Mindfulness is a simple, yet profound way of relating directly to whatever is happening in our lives, including the challenges of stress, pain, illness and everyday demands. This course is modeled on the program developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. Kabat-Zinn’s program is evidence-based and is the “gold standard” in such mindfulness training.
This 8 week MBSR course will be offered at the Yoga Connection. Anyone is welcome to apply and no yoga experience necessary.
