Dr. Laura Baltodano

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Laura Baltodano, wellness doctor, mindfulness teacher, certified health and wellness coach and registered yoga teacher, will present two free Mindful Living workshops to help instill mindfulness in daily life from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., November 15 and December 13, at City of Palms Chiropractic, in Fort Myers. The events will also preview two, eight-session series of weekly Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction courses beginning January 27 and 31, 2019, respectively, both preceded by orientation sessions.

Attendees will gain the understanding that perceptions play a role in the way they see the world and react to stressful stimulus and learn practices to allow them to become more present and reduce stress.

“Mindfulness has become a buzzword lately, and with good reason; however, what we call mindfulness has been around for thousands of years,” says Baltodano. “The practice of mindfulness involves intentionally being fully present in each moment with kindness, non-judgmentally and without striving for things to be any different than they are. It provides a way to step out of automatic pilot and see life in a different way; it is a form of awakening.”

Location: 11621 S. Cleveland Ave., Ste. 80. For more information, call 509-339-3129, email Dr. Laura@TheWellnessDoctor.com or visit LauraBaltodano.com/mbsr-mindfulness-based-stress-reduction.
