Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

  • Savasana Station 212 Avenue B (entrance on 13th street) New York, NY (map)

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.
