Mindfulness and meditation classes
“As long as you are breathing, there is more right with you than there is wrong, no matter how ill or how hopeless you may feel.” – Full Catastrophe Living, Jon Kabat-Zinn
Mindfulness, also known as heartfulness, is the awareness that arises when we pay attention, on purpose, in the present moment, without judgement. Scientific research supports a regular mindful meditation practice. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) helps individuals with stress and a broad range of medical conditions through useful mind body tools.
In this introductory class, you will learn the fundamentals of mindfulness, how to cultivate it and what steps to take to incorporate it into your life.
Benefits of mindfulness practice include:
- Better ability to cope with stress, pain and anxiety
- Improved concentration, focus and problem solving skills
- Ability to become more compassionate
- Increased ability to take care of oneself with greater resilience and balance
- Improved relaxation
- Ability to be more present and enjoy life to the fullest
As a qualified MBSR instructor, Mindy has studied with Jon Kabat Zinn, Saki Santorelli, and other nationally recognized instructors at the University of Massachusetts Center for Mindfulness.

This class helped me learn to step back and be more in third person; to observe how I’m reacting as opposed to just being in the thick of stress. It helped me to find different tools that I’ve never used for dealing with stress.
Each session offered more tools, activities and information about living mindfully, in the present moment in real life.
“Thank you, Mindy! You created a very peaceful environment over the last eight weeks. I appreciate all the information that you shared, and I hope to continue to use the tools in my everyday life.”
I am really grateful to have this training especially at this point in my life. I feel like I got more than I hoped for. I’ve learned more about meditation and about myself too.
Mindfulness meditation and Adaptive Yoga have become important parts of my life. I want them to continue to be.
