Mindfulness, from the mat to the plate- Presented by Modern and Mindful FILLING

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

Sure you're mindful and present on the mat (most of the time...) for that 60 min flow class. But how about the moment roll up your mat and roll out of the studio? Are you running on autopilot until the next time you meet your mat?

 

Mindfulness is expanding from a psychologist's office and yoga studio near you to classrooms, boardrooms, the political arena, professional sports team and even military bases. Each day, scientific research confirms the physical, cognitive, and emotional benefits of a mindfulness practice. 

 

As a Psychologist, meditation guide, competitive athlete, food producer, and yoga instructor, I bring an experienced and experiential presentation to groups in Western Canada that plants the seeds for mindful living, from our movements on the mat to mindful eating over our plate. 

 

An effective way of integrating mindfulness into every day life is as an “add-on” to daily routine activities. Do you eat daily? That's what I thought! Do you recall your 5 senses or joy the last time you ate? Mindful eating is an ideal place to start practicing mindfulness beyond your mat.

 

It'll be a session that can change your relationship with your body and food. We'll kick off the session with mindful movement to a meditation practice around the communal act of sharing food (vegan snacks will be provided for meditation!). There will be a chance for reflection and gratitude for self, the food we share, the earth and people involved in nurturing and curating the ingredients that are the source of the meditation, and the Prana Festival for bringing the community of yogis together. Finally, we'll engage in intention setting for a mindful living BEYOND the mat! 

 

Bring an appetite as you'll be provided with a nourishing drink + bite as part of our meditation practices.

 

PS you'll get to play with your food, so bring that inner child too!
