Mo-Flow - Treat yourself to some time to focus on you!

“Mo-Flow”

Mindful practice of Meditation and/or Yoga 

Monday, Wednesday, and Friday

Treat yourself to some time to focus on you! Find joy in a wonderful community of Mohawk colleagues where together we practice meditation or yoga virtually via Zoom. During these challenging times, an opportunity to take pause and focus on the present moment can be useful. According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, practices like meditation and yoga can help quiet your mind and allow you to look at problems from a calmer and more balanced viewpoint (CMHA, 2020). Over time, these practices can help you manage your response to stressful situations. Additionally, yoga is excellent for overall health, giving you an opportunity to lengthen and strengthen areas of the body that get compressed and out of balance with a technology driven lifestyle. This restorative style of yoga is good for any level - from new to experienced.

Each Monday, Wednesday and Friday, meditation begins at 11:30 and yoga follows at 12 pm. 

The sessions will begin Monday, September 13, 2021 and you can participate by simply clicking this link:

All levels of experience in both meditation and Yoga are welcome! You are free to join just the mindfulness/mediation portion, just the Yoga, or both.

No equipment is necessary, although eventually you may consider investing in a Yoga block and band. Household items can also replicate these tools and will be discussed in the Yoga sessions.

We hope to “see” you there!

We are also looking for volunteers with experience to facilitate meditations/mindfulness sessions on Fridays from 11:30 to 11:50 and a certified Yoga teacher to share Yoga on Fridays at 12pm to 12:45pm. Please reach out to kelley.hoyt@mohawkcollege.ca if you have some time to share on Fridays. Thank you!
