Everyday Mindfulness

REDUCE your Stress and make it work for You

Most of Us Have Experienced More Stress This Year


A recent survey* by Mental Health America and Flexjobs reveals that 75 percent of America’s workforce is experiencing stress and burnout this year.  


It's no surprise - given the health, economic and social landscape of the times.  And of course, stress and burnout can cause immediate productivity losses and lead longer term health issues.

Telling People To Be 'Mindful' and 'Just Breathe' Isn't Always Enough

There's been a renewed interest in mindfulness and the breath - and rightfully so.  Focused breathing can immediately help calm the nervous system. 


However, focused breathing treats only the symptoms and not the root causes of stress...

 Get to the Root. 

In this workshop you'll not only learn breathing techniques,  you'll also learn why and how the body and mind react to stress. 

You'll be equipped with methods to observe and analyze the mental and physical triggers of stress - and stop (or harness) them before they overwhelm you.

 Unplug and Recharge

While we will explore the latest findings in neuroscience and technology - our teachings will be 'analogue'.


Most of us are steeped in a world of multiple screens, apps and distractions. The techniques you will learn do not need tech -   just your intention, knowledge and breath.

Join us for this two hour interactive learning lab and get ready for what may be continued turbulent times ahead. We've got this.
