Description of Classes:
Sitting Comfortably at Your Computer Station:
Even with a good ergonomic set-up, many people continue to suffer from pain and discomfort at work. In this session you will learn how to apply proper body mechanics to alleviate pain and improve skeletal support and awareness. Sitting with a dynamic and healthy posture while performing commonly used workstation actions can reduce tension and help you prevent or heal from repetitive stress.
Diets don’t work. Instead, Homemade will show you the joy of cooking real food in a real-life support community for a truly sustainable lifestyle. Homemade is a hands-on nutrition and behavioral change curriculum for sustainable weight loss and chronic disease prevention. Learn how to cook healthy meals designed for weight loss, heart health and diabetes control. You will also receive weight loss coaching, nutrition education, mindfulness practice and peer group support.
De-Clutter to De-Stress:
Clutter can be a significant source of stress in our lives. Messy homes or workspaces can create or compound feelings of anxiety, helplessness and frustration. Is the clutter in your home or office beginning to overwhelm you? In this interactive workshop we will explore practical ways to organize your physical space and reduce the anxiety that clutter often creates. Learn the all-important step of “where to begin” and how to carve a manageable, efficient and stress-free space out of the chaos.
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction:
It has been know for centuries in the meditative traditions that the sustained practice of mindfulness meditation can have profoundly healing and transformative effects on one’s life. Substantiated by ongoing scientific investigation and evaluation, the MBSR, participants develop the practical and accessible skill of paying attention to the present moment (mindfulness). Though a variety of guided practices, participants can experience their own natural relaxation response and restore a healthy balance between mind and body. All MBSR classes include group dialogue, various breath-based meditation practices, and some gentle yoga.
