Introduction to Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)

Jon Waterman Dream Yoga Studio

Jon Waterman

9/10/2019 7:30 PM - 8:45 PM  at  Dream Yoga Studio (1485 Chain Bridge Road, Suite 104, McLean, VA, 22101) (Map It)

8 weeks, Tuesdays, September 10-October 29

This 8-week course will give you an opportunity to become familiar with basic techniques, concepts and applicable skills of Mindfulness Meditation. While shorter than a traditional MBSR course, instructions will be given in various postures and practices including; sitting, kneeling, standing, walking, gentle movement and interactive "contemplative dyads". 

Sitting in a chair is encouraged for anyone finding the floor uncomfortable.

Most classes include a session of restorative, deep relaxation in the reclining posture which many find an important prerequisite prior to establishing and sustaining an individualized daily meditation practice. 

This course blends a secular approach to teaching meditation with traditional language from the dharma exploring how meditation not only lowers stress levels but also restores a sense of balance in our busy lives. “Over the next eight weeks, how can we learn to genuinely enjoy a meditation practice, both on and off the cushion?”

Chairs, sitting cushions, blankets, eye masks and other necessary props are provided. We suggest that whenever possible you wear or bring comfortable, loose fitting clothing.

Please note that in order to respect group dynamics, registration closes after the 2nd class unless you have attended a previous course or have an established mindfulness meditation practice.

This venue is accessible to those with mobility impairments.
