MINDFULNESS + MEDITATION

Whole Again Counseling + Wellness weaves mindfulness practices into therapeutic counseling sessions, nutrition education, and our movement and fitness classes.


How well do you focus or pay attention to the present moment? Are you aware of your body and senses, what they are telling you? So often we go through our daily life without really experiencing it. 

Mindfulness and meditation are practices that involve consciously focusing on a single point of reference and attending non-judgmentally to the present moment. It can involve focusing on the breath, bodily sensations, or a word or phrase. Mindfulness encourages awareness and acceptance of things as they are rather than as we would like them to be. All that is required is bringing focused, moment-by-moment attention to whatever is in the present moment. 

Engaging in mindfulness practices helps one to develop a state of peace in the midst of chaos and stress. Among evidenced-based benefits, mindfulness practices help reduce stress, increase attention and concentration, increase one’s ability to empathize with others, reduce anxiety and depressive symptoms, and help with pain management.  Regular practice can help one to become grounded and cultivate inner strength and responsiveness to our circumstances.

THERAPEUTIC YOGA

Therapeutic Yoga fosters development of mind-body awareness, allowing you to develop a deeper awareness of your internal emotional state. This translates into an ability to better listen and respond to the body’s messages. A therapeutic yoga practice can build self-regulation and executive brain functioning, calming and integrating the emotional limbic system of the brain. Therapeutic Yoga still has the exercise and physical benefits of yoga, but is more personalized, goes a little more slowly, makes room for an individualized practice. This approach is tailored to the individual, even in a group setting. The class meets you where you are, all are welcome. Mondays @6 PM; Tuesdays and Thursdays @8 AM
