Breathing and Eating
The Mindfulness Course is an introductory course designed to help you understand the basic principles of mindfulness and to practice it using different tools. The course is divided into short modules. Each module deals with a “tool” from the Mindfulness Toolkit. The different tools are simply the different “anchors” that can help us become more present and grounded.
In the busyness of life we all experience moments of overwhelm, anxiety, stress and a sense of disconnection from others and ourselves. These short modules are designed to provide some basic information about the tool and a guided meditation for finding more ease, peace and grace in your daily life. In addition to a guided practice, each module also has some informal practices that one can easily integrate in the daily busyness of life to find a sense of grounding and freedom from constant stress and anxiety.
The course has a “self tracker” to help you view your own progress in your mindfulness journey. We also have some prompts for journaling to deepen the practice of self reflection. The modules can be done in any order or sequentially. The key lies in building a daily practice! We do hope you will find a meditation that works for you to ground you and help you stay present to the life that unfolds before you with ease and joy! Wish you a happy journey!
I have been engaged as a Professional Geographer and Learning Experience Designer for Corporations, Students and Teachers with 18 years of experience in and Corporate Training, Academic Research, Instructional Design, E-Learning, Visual Media Teaching, Teacher Training and Teacher Professional Development. I am also a passionate Yoga and Mindfulness Instructor designing and conducting training for individuals and institutes and corporations.
Journeys are fascinating - internal and external! My training in Yoga/Mindfulness and Geography help me explore and facilitate human development in creative ways. Each time I sit to meditate or each interaction I have with another person present me with opportunities to explore and deepen my practice of being more mindful. The first thing I realized is that mindfulness is a journey and not some end destination.
I have enjoyed working with school teachers in designing programs where Mindfulness can be used to stimulate creative and critical thinking skills. Stress is something that we have all experienced. Some projects that I have been involved with were to design mindfulness training for faculty and staff of colleges for stress management.
My love affair with nature started when I completed my undergrad in Geography and went on to do my Masters in Earth Science. Nothing makes one more present than nature. My Post Graduation diploma in Yogic Science has helped me strengthen that connection with nature. I love the interconnections of yoga, mindfulness, environment and people and draw on these areas to design programs.
The yoga mat is like a magic carpet and stepping on it is an adventure of a life time and being a geographer, I truly enjoy the journey!
