A Taste of Mindfulness


This 90-minute, jam-packed, experiential group session gives individuals who are curious about mindfulness a chance to learn about this beneficial and life-affirming practice.


The session will outline what mindfulness is and is not, explain how meditation can reduce stress and anxiety, and introduce participants to basic mindful breathing and movement practices. This small but mighty class provides participants with mindfulness practices that can be used the second you leave the studio.

Private Mindfulness Session

INDIVIDUAL - $150/hour

Learn to reduce stress and anxiety using mindfulness and meditation techniques. Increase your stress hardiness by "leaning in" to difficult emotions and working with personal reactivity patterns. These sessions may be scheduled on an as-needed basis and are not part of a particular mindfulness program. They are suitable for those new to mindfulness, or for participants of previous programs looking to enhance their skills and deepen their practice.

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR)

MBSR is designed for anyone suffering from chronic stress, illness or pain who wishes to increase their overall health and wellbeing through the cultivation of a daily mindfulness practice. The program has proven beneficial to individuals experiencing the following issues: ongoing stress, anxiety, panic attacks, sleep disturbances, depression, trauma, chronic pain, burnout, etc. Please note, all participants undergo a confidential, initial screening to ensure that MBSR is a suitable intervention.

Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training


A twelve-week program designed to end the cycle of dieting by helping participants cultivate a real relationship with food that's healthy and sustainable.  Backed by years of NIH research, MB-EAT is designed to address all forms of "mindfulness" eating through the application of mindfulness including: stress-related eating, emotional eating, disordered eating patterns, and obesity. Through mindful eating practices, participants learn to pay attention to what their bodies really need and why, in addition to releasing the guilt and struggle often associated with eating. The course format is an initial ten-week program with two follow-up sessions scheduled one month and six months afterward. This aids in accountability and allows for a strengthening of ongoing principles and practice.
