A Mindfulness in motion workshop with Yael Schweitzer and Yasmin Lambat

Conducted a workshop with Yasmin Labat were we invited participants to explore emerging approaches of Mindfulness based movement practices that we created through our journey with mindfulness and movement.

We placed the body at the heart of Mindfulness and invited participants to sense the wisdom of their body in stillness and in motion. We called this embodied mindfulness.

Yasmin who developed body sensing invited participants to listen and observe felt sensations with curiosity as they arise in the moment, enriching, enlivening, expanding and deepening awareness of the relationship with one's self, body and the space around. I introduced mindfulness in motion through movement explorations that connected participants with their authentic self and with others and taught the practice of Loving-Kindness in stillness and movement.
