There’s a bit of folk wisdom that says, “We don’t see things as they are — we see them as we are."

 

Mindfulness is the state of being present with what is actually happening, free from habits and conditioning, so we can see things as they actually are.  Through Trauma Sensitive Yoga, Yoga Therapy, Meditation, Health Coaching and Reiki, we work with both the body and the mind to gain greater clarity about who we are and what’s meaningful to us. Mindfulness gives us the freedom to make choices in life, and helps us develop a deeper appreciation for ourselves and others.
