Yoga and Acceptance: Moving Toward Psychological Flexibility

Join Eileen McNally from Applied Fitness Solutions and John Evans from BLND for workshop series that combines Yoga and Mindfulness with ACT principles of Attention, Values, Mindfulness, and Defusion.

Overview

What is Psychological Flexibility? In short, it is the ability to act mindfully, guided by our values. Ok. What does that mean? It means we can learn, develop, and improve a set of skills to live more intentionally, in the present, fully conscious, open to our experiences, and live a full, meaningful life guided by our values. Much like doing yoga, and any skill, it takes effort, commitment, and practice.

In this workshop series you will learn how to engage with your values in a very tangible way, aligning behavior with values in an intentional manner. We’ll discuss the difference between values and goals and why focusing on values may be more adaptable. 

We will discuss and practice a set of skills to help refocus on your values by learning to keep attention in the present, demonstrate self-compassion, and turn the volume down on unhelpful thoughts. Unfortunately, we cannot control our thoughts or emotions, but we can learn how to allow thoughts and emotions to INFLUENCE behavior, not DICTATE behavior.
