Mindfulness is the ability to pay attention to the present moment, without judgement. When you're able to see things as they really are, you're better able to navigate the highs and lows of your professional career. Healthy, happy employees make better companies. But what is a company's role in helping to facilitate the peace and well-being of their workforce? In this presentation, we'll explore the behavioral and motivational science behind how and why mindfulness works, emerging trends and innovators, and how to implement a mindfulness component to your wellness program. Meditation literally changes your brain - find out how! Nicole will share her experiences with leading corporate yoga and meditation classes and how that impacts her clients' personal and professional lives. We'll also try a few techniques! Experience for yourself how simple, profound, and transformative these practices can be. Members will learn techniques to de-stress to use themselves, and to share with their employees. We will do some light desk + chair yoga stretches, a breathing exercise and a meditation technique during the presentation.
