Why Dynamic Mindfulness?
Long-lasting stress, without periods of healthy rest and recovery, gradually cause mental problems. These include anxiety, loss of energy, loss of interest in work, insomnia, burnout, and depression. Research has shown that stress can lead to mental health problems and burnout. Furthermore, sitting long hours without movement at work can cause serious health risks, a Harvard study shows.
To deal with stress and lack of movement at work, we might do yoga, meditation, and sports once or twice a week, before or after work or during the weekend. However, we hardly practice mindfulness or movement during our hours at work, where we actually need it the most.
This is where the Dynamic Mindfulness offers a solution. Dynamic Mindfulness combines easy, time-efficient, and highly effective mindfulness meditation with light physical exercise/movements which release the typical “office stress” areas (neck, shoulders, and back). It’s a guided group session between 30-80 minutes. Practicing this meditation mid-day will leave you with its benefits for the rest of your workday.
What are the benefits of Dynamic Mindfulness ?
Dynamic Mindfulness helps to:
- identify stress more quickly and subsequently do something about it;
- become more connected to your body;
- become more self-aware and vital;
- learn to express and share “shame” with colleagues in a safe and constructive way and therefore communicate easier with colleagues;
- have more focus, are more creative and perform better;
- release stress and “stuck” energy via highly effective time efficient, easy, practical, playful meditation, movement and excercises.
The Dynamic Mindfulness is inspired by “classic” mindfulness and a combination of the most efficient traditional and modern movement practices.
Mindfulness simply means paying attention to the moment-to-moment experience. It is all about awareness and living in the present moment.
Mindfulness – being aware – is a powerful resource for the functioning of people and teams at work.
What is Dynamic Mindfulness ?
Dynamic Mindfulness combines both gentle and more intense active healing excercises which relieve stress, transforms negative patterns, and helps us to be balanced and healthy. It increases our enjoyment and appreciation of life.
Many meditative techniques require one to sit still and silent. But for most of us accumulated stress in our bodymind makes that difficult. Before we can hope to access our inner powerhouse of consciousness, we need to let go of our tensions.
This form of mindfulness is a quick, deep , yet gentle and thorough way to break old, ingrained patterns in the bodymind .
