Description of Workshops:


Finding Happiness through Breathwork and Guided Meditation
with Janhavi Wadhwani
Thursday, September 16th, from 10:30-11:45am

We have had to face new levels of anxiety caused due to loneliness, loss, and disruption in regular social activities during the last year. Through breathwork and guided meditation, participants are able to move through fear, anxiety, grief and other such emotions to a place of feeling more joy, inner peace and wellbeing. During the workshop, we will do some discussion-based processes, mindful movements, breathwork and guided meditation that will have participants feel energized and rejuvenated. The workshop will be highly engaging and interactive.

Keep it Moving!

Express Your Positive
with Candida Rose  
Thursday October 14th at 10:30 AM (please note time change)

Songwriting is an important form of self-expression and useful tool when it comes to mental health and wellbeing. We all have had words of a song touch our innermost core and experienced an almost subliminal experience through music and lyrics. This workshop will explore the benefits of expressing positive thoughts and emotions through the art of songwriting. Participants will be encouraged to think of words or phrases that help to express positive emotions.  The objective will be to create the beginnings of a song that will be exclusive to the senior center and can be used in the future!

Nutrition to Boost Energy & Mental Well Being 
with Dietician Kelsey McEntee from HESSCO
                       
Thursday, October 21st at 1:30 PM. 
Nutrition has been seen as playing a vital role in mental health and cognitive functioning. There is quite a bit of research that shows the brain gut connection; therefore, maintaining a healthy gut with good foods can help to promote positive mental health and cognitive function. Nutrition can directly impact things such as memory, processing speed, mood (depression and anxiety) as well as physical energy and mental focus and attention.
