Upcoming Workshops & Events

Hornets & Hippos for Adults

Mindful Movement and the Basics of Mindfulness
Date: Begins January 12 and runs through February
Time: Fridays 12:00–1:15 pm

Location: Beyond Zen Studio in Granger

Take your mindfulness to the next level.

This set of seven classes will start with some light movement to help participants get back in touch with their bodies, before diving into mindful teaching and an extended mindful practice. This class will benefit anyone who has started working with mindfulness and would like a place to practice further. It will also be a great introduction to anyone who is curious about mindfulness and wants to bring more self-calm into their life.

Each of the seven classes will start with mindful movement and follow with a different topic of focus, giving an overview of mindful principles and will include basic instructions and practice. Class topics will include:

  • Reactivity to calm: Understanding how we feel stress in the body
  • Young mindset: How we approach tasks as an adult
  • Non-judging of self and others
  • Trust and attachment
  • Non-striving
  • Acceptance and curiosity
  • Letting go to be in the moment
  • An optional three hour, silent retreat at Beyond Zen will follow at the end of the weekly classes.

During each class we will also discuss the mindfulness practice basics of breath work and meditation anchors. Participants are encouraged to bring a notebook for reflection either before or after the class.
