What is Mindful Yoga?

Mindful yoga is a practice that combines the principles of mindfulness meditation with the physical movements and postures of yoga. It involves bringing non-judgmental awareness to the present moment, paying attention to the sensations in the body, the breath, and thoughts and emotions that arise during practice.

What is mental noting?

Mental noting (also called, labelling or naming) can be incorporated into our formal and informal mindfulness practice as a tool to keep awareness on track.

When we do this, we usually feel some space or emotional freedom.  The mental note can be general,...

Mindfulness, Meditation & Everything In Between with Jennifer Innes

"Mindfulness, Meditation & Everything In Between” Here’s a snippet of the hour-long podcast. Mindfulness, Meditation, Mindfulness Meditation… How does one even approach the subject of mindfulness — is there an actual beginning , middle and end? Is everyone’s path or experience the same? What is the outcome we should be expecting? We’re going through an unprecedented time that's impacting, our life, our health, freedoms, work, finances etc. It’s a profound time of uncertainty, anxiety and a collective fear.
