SARATOGA STRESS RE­DUC­TION PRO­GRAM: Join us for the Saratoga Stress Re­duc­tion Pro­gram, an eight-week Mind­ful­ness Based Stress Re­duc­tion course taught by Selma Ne­mer, PhD, and Pierre Zim­mer­man, MS, in which stu­dents learn mind­ful­ness­based med­i­ta­tion as a prac­tice for growth and heal­ing. Our cre­den­tialed in­struc­tors have taught lo­cally, na­tion­ally, and in­ter­na­tion­ally for over 10 years. We have taught over 100 classes in Saratoga with over 3000 grad­u­ates. Stu­dents learn mul­ti­ple forms of mind­ful­ness med­i­ta­tion as well as the lat­est neu­ro­science find­ings about the im­pact of mind­ful­ness on the brain and our abil­ity to heal. As our stu­dents dis­cover they can ex­pe­ri­ence a deeper sense of peace in the midst of a fast-paced, de­mand­ing and stress­ful life, they learn to nav­i­gate life’s chal­lenges with greater ease. While the pro­gram is very per­sonal and ther­a­peu­tic, it is also solidly prac­ti­cal and of­fers con­crete ap­proaches to deal­ing with phys­i­cal and emo­tional dis­tress. Ben­e­fits in­clude im­proved breath­ing and sleep, re­duced anx­i­ety, bet­ter pain man­age­ment, in­creased phys­i­cal flex­i­bil­ity, changes in neg­a­tive thought pat­terns, greater aware­ness of eat­ing, im­proved im­mune sys­tem and a sense of in­ner calm. Classes are of­fered on Tues­day evenings 5:30pm for our win­ter Ses­sion be­gin­ning Jan. 14th. Class size is lim­ited and we ac­cept some in­sur­ances.
