Besides Mindfulness, Yin Yoga sessions are combined with the afternoon sessions. Yin yoga is a more meditative approach to yoga, a slow-paced style of exercise, with asanas (postures) that are held for longer periods of time. With this practice you will be able to release tension on the level of the body.

Session I - Intro to Mindfulness

In this session you will be introduced to Mindfulness. In this session you'll be experientially introduced to mindful eating, and the body-scan method. In order for you to be fully engaged in the present moment through the program, each session ends with mindfulness assignments to practice up to the next session.

Session II - Perception

Perception influences deeply how we see and in consequence respond to reality. In this session, we will explore how perception influences patterns of behavior, as well as paying special attention to beliefs and how they influence the decisions we make in life. Understanding the process will allow you to make changes and therefore better respond to challenging situations.

Session III - Emotions

You will learn how to be mindful of emotions by seeing their true nature. We will unveil the message behind each emotion you will understand the power they have in how we act and interact with what surrounds us, and boost your focus in the face of daily challenges.

Session IV - Stress and Response to Stress

The purpose of this session is firstly to understand the mechanism of stress, and it´s short- and long-term effects on the mind-body. Secondly is to explore transformational coping strategies to broaden your inner resources and enhance your resilience through mindfulness practice.

Silent day

The intensive session is intended to give you the opportunity to directly experiences the power of Mindfulness by combining a day where you practice all the techniques learned, preparing you for integrating them beyond the conclusion of the program.

Session V - Communication

This session is dedicated to the concept of Mindful Communication through the practice of active listening and the exploration of three types of communication. You will be able to see that by communicating mindfully one can transform difficult situations and improve relationships.

Session VI - Integrating Mindfulness into daily life

At the end of the program, I will guide you as you design a clear and focused plan to integrate all the knowledge and mindfulness practices to improve your everyday goals and future objectives.
