San Francisco, CA 94107

Mindfulness has been shown to reduce stress, lower inflammation and is the missing link to your lifelong weight loss success.

What is mindfulness, how does it work exactly and how do I bring it into my everyday life? What is the true mind-body connection and how does all this work?

This evening workshop will explore several ways to you can begin your own mindfulness practice at home, at work or even while you are driving.

Join us at SF Natural Medicine /as we welcome 3 practitioners: a yogi, a meditation teacher and a medical doctor, to share their success stories, their clients’ successes and guide us through the physical, mental and spiritual benefits of mindfulness.

Together we will engage in several simple poses for lowering cortisol, activating our parasympathetic nervous system and reducing stress in the body.

This is for anyone who is curious about how the mind and body are truly connected in practice, or who has tried and failed at mindfulness approaches in the past. If you currently have a mindfulness practice you are welcome to attend but do keep in mind this class is for beginning practitioners.

Cost: $12
