Mindfulness

“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and nonjudgmentally.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn

Join us each Monday from 2:30 to 3:00 pm in the Univest Community Room (Loux Healthcare Center) as we practice guided seated, lying, and moving mindfulness exercises designed to bring us into the present moment. This class is free and open to all levels of health and skill.

Research shows that regular mindfulness practice can have a significant positive effect for those experiencing stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, depression, chronic pain, migraines, heart conditions, diabetes, and other ailments.
