The "Mindfulness, Yoga & Stress Reduction Workshop" 8-week workshop begins on Friday, April 27, 2012 at Radiance Yoga, a well-known San Diego yoga studio operating in the Mission Hills area since 1975. Spots in the workshop, to be held on Fridays through June 29, are filling up quickly, with both novices and experienced students welcome. Amy Holte, Ph.D., M.Ed. and Lorraine M. Hobbs, M.A., CHom., both professors at the UCSD Center for Mindfulness, will be teaching the workshop.
Mindfulness is described as being aware of the experience of the present moment in a non-judgmental way, while practicing the art of compassion. The workshop at the San Diego yoga studio is for anyone wishing to cultivate awareness of stress reactions. The course will teach the practice of mindfulness through “experiential learning” and Yoga to improve coping skills.
“Our goal is to help our students learn to release tension and increase their energy levels,” said Hobbs. “Through mindfulness, meditation, and Yoga, participants in this program will learn to be present, and find more joy, creativity, and happiness in their lives.”
Dr. Holte has been studying and practicing mindfulness and Yoga since 1997. She completed her doctoral research on meditation and the brain, drawing from ancient texts and current neuroscience research. She teaches Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MSBR).
Lorraine Hobbs, M.A., CHom., currently is the Youth and Family Program director at the UCSD Center for Mindfulness where she runs a Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction Program. She is a certified Iyengar Yoga instructor and homeopathic practitioner.
The Mindfulness, Yoga & Stress Reduction Workshop will be held April 27 through June 29, 2012 on Friday evenings from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Radiance Yoga Center, 1612 West Lewis Street, San Diego, CA 92103.
