Mindfulness and Yoga"
Program at Maryvale
In October of 2014, I was asked to be the facilitator for a new study being done at Maryvale, a treatment center in Windsor, Ontario, for youths 13 to 17 years old with mental, social, and eating disorders as well as behavioral challenges.
Once the study was complete, the results were so positive, and the groups enjoyed Mindfulness training so much that the program has continued! Students spend a half-hour each week practicing various techniques of present-moment awareness, body-consciousness, breath control, and learn basic yogasana (postures) for physical health and alignment.
