LEWISBURG, WV (WOAY) – On Thursday, Lauren Wadsworth, a certified mindfulness teacher, began teaching one of two free mindfulness classes she is offering in Lewisburg.
She led the room in a series of introductory mindfulness exercises involving deep breaths, body movements and body awareness.
Wadsworth says mindfulness is all about taking time to let your brain and body be present in that moment and be centered through meditation and awareness exercise.
The idea of the class is to introduce people to the practice of mindfulness and gauge the interest of doing a community class.
“In terms of community classes here, that’s still a work in progress, so what I’ll be doing in these classes, these little half-hour classes, is if you’re interested in doing this again, you know, and committing to an 8-week class, you’re just gonna write your name down what time of day, that sort of thing and we’ll figure that out,” she said.
The next class will be on March 12 and will last from 12:15 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. at the Montwell Commons in the Clingman Center behind Hill and Holler Pizza in Lewisburg.
