Stress and pain are nearly unavoidable in people’s daily lives. The key to maintaining balance is for individuals to learn how to respond to stress – not with frustration and self-criticism, but with mindful, nonjudgmental awareness of their bodies and minds.
Dimitra Yoga Om + Align will offer a mindfulness-based stress-reduction program with weekly sessions for four weeks, starting at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 30, online via Zoom and in person at Dimitra Yoga Lewes.
MBSR is a clinically proven, meditation-based program for stress management, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, cancer and other health issues. Learning to focus on the present moment can permanently change the way one handles stress.
As the series progresses, participants will learn how to replace stress-promoting habits with mindful ones – a skill that will last a lifetime.
This series is open to members and nonmembers. No prior yoga or meditation experience is necessary.
Those who choose the virtual option will also receive a recording of the session, which is available for 48 hours, so it can be worked into anyone’s schedule.
