ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE
What is MindFitness?
MindFitness is an easy and effortless meditation technique developed and shared since 2005 to develop a meditation self- practice. MindFitness combines ancient knowledge from Vedic monks and modern training to strengthen the Three Attributes of the Mind: Attention, Focus and Awareness.
The combination of the ancient teachings of YOGA and world class corporate practices gave life to Mindfitness.
You will learn four meditation techniques based on Positive Emotion: Praise, Gratitude and Love.
They are effortless to use, yet powerful to practice. MindFitness uses the two sides of the brain; one that works with emotions and the other that works with concepts. We also work with the natural tendency of the mind to look for happiness and the tendency of the body to constantly heal itself.
You will have everything you need for a self- sufficient practice to enhance all areas of your life. Once you have completed the training you are welcome to repeat it as often as you
wish, for free. You might already have a meditation practice, or you might be looking to start from zero, or you might just be looking for more...in any case, you are in the right place!
The Mindfulness meditation workshop will be delivered from Monday to Wednesday at 11:30 am to learn this powerful but simple system of meditation
Basics of yoga as taught by Swami Sivananda Saraswati
