Stress Less: Mindfulness and Meditation for the Everyday by Victoria Smith

Stress Less: Mindfulness and Meditation for the Everyday

If you've ever wanted to try meditation, but felt like it was a little intimidating, this course is for you! We break down how to meditate, the benefits it can give you, bust myths and help you build a lasting practice.

Launches on February 1st, 2020

Can anybody meditate?

Heck yes they can. The challenge, for many people, is the fear they're doing it wrong, that they can't quiet the voices in their heads, or they simply don't know where to start.

Join Morgan Craig-Broadwith of Live It Active for an Introduction to Meditation & Mindfulness. With years of practice in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) combined with her background in exercise physiology and psychology, Morgan will lead us in the basics of meditation and mindfulness for everyday individuals. 

She's not your meditation goddess - she's a real live mom of two with a serious career. You know what helps keep her performing at her peak both at home and at work? 

You guessed it! Meditation and mindfulness. 

Morgan breaks it down over the course of six weeks so that you can build the meditation muscle, see the benefits of calming your hamster wheel mind, and create more space in your life. 

This is powerful stuff and we hope you join us.
