What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in meditation and mindfulness practices, specifically designed for while not limited to people with ADD/ADHD Attention Deficient (Hyperactivity) Disorder. As ADD/ADHD interferes with the development of a person’s self-control, tools and techniques that improve self-regulation can be of great help. Meditation is a type of mental training to helping you focus attention, balance your emotions, improve your relationships, and enhance your life.

Meditation does not always have to be in a form of sitting cross-legged with your eyes closed forever. With this group, you will experience physical and mindfulness exercises such as deep stretching, breathing, relaxation and active meditation. We will also be sharing ADD/ADHD related information, resources and experiences. Please dress comfortably to allow you to move freely for moderate physical activities.

About the organizers: Body & Brain Yoga Clark Center ( http://www.bodynbrain.com/clark ) is a holistic health center offering group and individual classes in Dahn Yoga, Tai-Chi, meditation, and more. Bamboo Insights LLC ( http://bambooinsights.com ) offers ADD/ADHD education and life coaching.

Chair Yoga & Meditation for Office Workers and Anyone

Online event

Chair Yoga invites you to find mobility in a way that is soft and gentle but also really supportive and beneficial. In this 45 minute online live class, you will bring your awareness and integrity into the body, activate the muscles that help you find length up through the spine for better posture, energy flow and deep relaxation.

I was was an office worker and now a yoga taichi instructor. Having had experience sitting for long hours in front of computer, I am looking forward to sharing simple yoga and meditation exercises that can help you to reset and recharge your day.
