MINDFULNESS   

Mindfulness is the nonjudgmental awareness of the present moment.  Mindfulness develops the understanding and management of one's mind through awareness of the breath, body, environment, thoughts, and emotions. These practices have been shown to improve attention, emotional intelligence, compassion, and empathy. 

 

ART

Creative projects allow for self-exploration and self-expression. Collective projects fosters community and connection. Through art, we learn in a concrete, visceral way that we are creators of our own lives.

 

YOGA

Through a combination of yoga postures and breath techniques, people become stronger, more flexible, and more balanced. By learning how to manage the breath, the mind and body creates wellbeing. These practices reduce stress and anxiety and increase a sense of control and health.
