Ruth Sanders
Health & Fitness

Course Description

Movement Meditation combines the benefits of physical activity with the benefits of mindfulness meditation. In other words, you don’t have to be still to meditate. Meditation invokes a shift in consciousness, whether it be in stillness or action. When you are in the midst of your day, and your mind is restless or disturbed, doing a movement meditation practice can create an immediate shift in consciousness, enabling you to bring greater awareness and peace into the world around you. Sanders will explore different mindfulness meditation techniques and how they can be combined with a gentle movement practice to incorporate into everyday life.
