Classes teach relaxation techniques

A series of classes teach relaxation techniques that anyone can apply to improve their mental and physical well-being.

In our fast-paced society, many people suffer with stress, anxiety or burnout.

A coming series of classes teach relaxation techniques that anyone can apply to improve their mental and physical well-being. These Thursday noon hour classes are a chance to sample a variety of meditation and relaxation techniques.

Naturopathic physician Dr. Deidre Macdonald invites you to her downtown Courtenay medical clinic where participants will de-stress and learn a variety of practical and empowering tools to help balance mind, body and spirit. These guided meditation and visualization classes will help participants unwind and find “quiet within the storm.”

Meditation and visualization has been shown to improve health, calm emotions and sharpen the mind. Past participants have said that this class is the highlight of their week.

Classes are from 12:10 to 12:50 and run from May 16  through June 27. The location is 448 10th St. across from Grain’s Bakery. Contact Dr. Macdonald’s office at 250-897-0235 or www.getwellhere.com.
