Mindfulness Yoga with Cathy-Mae Karelse

10.00am - 4.00pm, Sunday 05 November 2017.

Venue Old Stratford Community Hall, Deanshanger Road, Milton Keynes MK19 6NL.

The aim of the day is to convey an understanding of mindfulness, its relevance in society, a brief history of teaching mindfulness, it’s purpose, benefits, value and its pertinence to yoga practitioners and teachers.

Exploration of formal mindfulness practices such as the body scan, mindful walking and further techniques such as the breathing space.

The day’s focus:

  1. appreciate the value of mindfulness and its application to yoga
  2. completed a yoga practice infused with mindfulness principles
  3. experienced mindfulness practices, noticing how this has affected them
  4. have taken and experienced further mindfulness practices and tools
  5. understand the difference between mindfulness and relaxation
  6. be in a position to identify which mindfulness practice most appealed to them that day.

Please bring your lunch, Yoga mat, blocks, blanket, walking shoes (optional)

Pre-reading such as Tich Nhat Hanh's The Miracle of Mindfulness is not compulsory but would add value, as would Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth OR The Power of Now.

All interested in mindfulness are most welcome.

Please bring your mat and props to support you.
