On January 13, 2023 PDW hosted the healthiest of all happy hours! Our event, Happiness Hour, was a free workshop where Yoga Barn instructor and expert health coach Heather Gwaltney shared ways in which people of all ages can easily practice healthy coping skills.
Attendees tried cleansing breathwork, chill-out yoga poses like seated forward fold and cat/cow, and participated in some endorphin-releasing meditation. We learned about the stress-busting effects of regular journaling. We discussed the importance of clean nutrition and adequate sleep. All while gathered in the safe and peaceful space of the Yoga Barn at 44 W. Earleigh Heights Road in Severna Park.
Thank you to all who attended, and especially to the beautiful Yoga Barn and Heather. What a pleasant, effective (and substance-free!) way to start the weekend on a healthy note. Hope you can join us for the next one. You will be glad you did.
Please take a look at this Loving Kindness Meditation (LKM) script and information which explains how this practice can cultivate compassion and acceptance in ourselves and all others. After trying this meditation, you are given the opportunity to reflect on your experience and start to discover the benefits for yourself.
