Mindfulness for Beginners

*Please note the day change.

Mindfulness is the simple (but not always easy) act of paying attention to the present. In this class, we will explore simple breathing and meditation practices that encourage mindfulness, with compassion for ourselves. Over time, mindfulness practices are credited with improving focus and concentration; building emotional resiliency; and reducing the effects of stress.

Instructor(s)

Kristine Backes left a corporate communications career in 2010 to deepen her study of yoga, its sister science Ayurveda, and other nature-based mind-body-soul care traditions. Her education included two journeys to India followed by several years as a partner in a natural health clinic in Portland, when she returned to the Montana mountains for a lifetime of nature learning.

Kristine offers consultations, workshops, and mentoring rooted in nature-based healing traditions. She loves to show people how to listen to their own wisdom by moving closer to harmony with nature, whether through diet, lifestyle, astrology, or other traditional methods of connecting with the natural world around us. Kristine is a registered yoga teacher and holds a master's degree in organizational leadership.

Kristine has been a part time resident of the Livingston area since she was four years old and is thrilled to now call Livingston her full-time home.
