Think gentle sea breezes, rhythmic lapping of waves on the beach, small boats bobbing gently on the water and just the hint of a wind chime dancing in the distance. That was Thursday morning at the historic Thinkers Lodge at Pugwash, Nova Scotia where a contingent of professional school library workers met for their annual professional development day and I got to present a 'mindfulness/yoga in the workplace' session.
I had brought my sound system to help with the ambience but there was absolutely no need for it as the deck and the above described setting provided more than enough atmosphere. We paced ourselves through deep-breathing exercises infused with positive affirmations and performed a series of asanas specifically chosen for the day.
Thank you to the organizers for inviting me to lead this launch session. I hope the 'peaceful, easy feeling' lent a special quality to your day.
