what is mindfulness?
We understand that while “mindfulness” has become a major trend and buzzword, it is also a vague concept that many might not grasp. ONE Wellness aims to demystify mindfulness by providing education, learning resources and personal testimonials on how to live a more mindful life.
what class should I start with?
Self Compassion, Finding Peace, and Calmness are great places to start.
why should I meditate?
The benefits of mindfulness practice like meditation are extensive and the list continues to grow. Studies have proven its effectiveness in decreasing pain, ADHD, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, addiction and disease; while increasing, attention, peace, joy, and overall wellbeing.
what if I don't have the time?
In order to receive the mental-health benefits of a meditation practice, you only have to devote between 5-10 minutes a day to meditation. Our classes give your the tools and techniques in order to start an at-home meditation practice to complement your experience at ONE Wellness.
ONE Wellness meditation classes are 45 minutes long. While this may sound daunting at first, most participants report that once they start meditating, the length of the class feels more like 10 to 15 minutes.
when will I be done?
Just like any other exercise, you have to continue your practice in order to receive the effects. If you consistently lift weights at the gym and then stop going for a year, you are not going to be able to retain that same amount of muscle. We encourage students to develop a meditation practice, something that they do multiple times a week. The more frequently you meditate, the stronger the effects will be.
can I meditate at home?
Please do! At-home practice is the perfect compliment to our guided group meditations.
what if I'm bad at it?
Like all skill sets, it will get easier with time. That being said, everyone has the ability to meditate. Our instructors are trained to guide you through the process of meditation so that you don't feel lost or confused. Meditation is something that you have to experience to understand, but in our books, no one is bad at meditation!
