Since opening the doors here in 2004 Brant Rogers has supported folks locally, across the region and nationally in many ways; Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) trainings, mindful yoga courses, research programs and publications, MBSR teacher training, workshops, tailored trainings and coaching for organizations and individuals. He will gladly support you.
The central course Brant offers here is the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) training. There are three decades of excellent published research defining the many significant health and resilience benefits of the training. Learn more about the elements, benefits, research done here and the current schedule of MBSR trainings: MBSR at the Stress Reduction Clinic.
Below is a an audio recording of a 5-minute Welcome Meditation I offer students as an introduction to contemplative practice in the styles we practice in MBSR trainings, retreats, and courses; a few minutes of a practice of acceptance, openness, stillness, and welcoming with no need to do it the right way. A practice of kind, attentive presence; as best one can given the many distractions that tug at us. It is of course also a welcome to help you know more about the experience of learning here! — Brant
Mindful yoga classes and workshops are offered here ten times a week on most days in a variety of themes; gentle, therapeutic, beginning or intermediate levels of rigor. You’ll find neither quasi-spiritual nor yoga-robic style instruction. Brant’s classes invite you to be as you are, to become more at home with your own unique level of health, experience, vitality and awareness and explore how to move safely and generously from there. This is a practice that does not urge you to ‘push in order to get better.’ It’s a practice of allowing you to grow from the inside out, naturally. As you find more of a sense of embodied presence you will find your own unique path toward greater ease, more vitality, better health, mental clarity, balance, strength, as well as emotional and physical flexibility. Everyone welcome in my classes for folks of any age, gender, health, size, or ability.
Folks interested in life coaching or organizational training and coaching will often want to visit about their intentions and goals. Brant will make time in a complementary clarity session to listen, learn and answer any questions you may have. From there you can decide how you want to proceed. If coaching doesn’t seem appropriate, Brant may refer you to someone who may be able to support you. However, you may decide to work together and consider a path forward. The clarity session’s only goal is to listen and support you as you define your unique intentions and solutions. Contact Brant to arrange for a complimentary clarity session.
While MBSR, mindful yoga courses, workshops and various group trainings here are proven ways of helping folks enhance resilience, improve health, reduce stress, achieve life balance, many people prefer to work one-on-one. Brant’s Mindfulness-Based Resilience & Life-Coaching will support you with personalized experiential learning as you lean toward your intentions in life; improving personal relationships, overcoming limitations, enhancing professional development, finding resilience in the face of life’s challenges, sensing your vitality, being more at home along your life’s path.
