Workshop on stress reduction

A workshop covering stress reduction will be held Wednesday, Oct. 28, from 11 a.m. to noon. This session is part of Mindfulness Matters Week.

Julie Schlemmer, yoga therapist, Reiki master, health coach and owner of the Atma Center in Cleveland Heights, will offer a workshop on how a consistent practice of mindfulness can help reduce feelings of anxiety and stress in the physical body. By learning to quiet the mind and live in the present moment, the body, too, will quiet, become calmer, more relaxed and able to experience the joy of living.

The session will introduce the practice of mindfulness meditation, the importance and significance of working with the breath, and how the body shifts and releases tension with subtle movements.  

Register for the workshop on stress reduction.
