Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (Tuesdays 9:30am-12pm, Savasana Station)

  • Savasana Station 212 Avenue B New York, NY, 10009 United States (map)


This spring join Emily Herzlin at Savasana Station for Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), the eight-week course developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn and the University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Center for Mindfulness.

Mindfulness is paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, without judgment. MBSR uses mindful movement, meditation, group discussion, and inquiry to teach students how to use mindfulness to relate differently to stress. The course teaches practical ways to integrate mindfulness into daily life and build and sustain a personal mindfulness practice.

Studies indicate that mindfulness-based stress reduction programs can reduce anxiety and increase general well-being and overall happiness.

Mindfulness can be successfully learned and practiced by people of all backgrounds. No prior experience is necessary.
