Here are a few scientifically-validated benefits of mindfulness practices:
  • Increases immune function, positive emotion, social connection, emotional intelligence, focus and attention. 
  • Decreases pain, inflammation at a cellular level, anxiety and stress. 
  • Improves the ability to regulate emotions, to be creative, and to “think outside the box.” 

Bring your own cushion, blanket or yoga mat if you like. Chairs are available.
