Explore the world of Mindfulness with the YMCA’s Mynd Wellness Program.
We spend hours working on and moving our bodies, but what about focusing on our minds?
Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing your attention to the present moment. Practicing the art of mindfulness, or meditation, has the ability to improve levels of depression, anxiety, obesity, stress, happiness and fatigue.
Join us for one of our FREE Full Moon Meditations, held monthly across our four centres.
