Reduce stress and improve well-being
Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates:
Status: Available with adjustments
Ongoing and upcoming in-person classes have been transitioned, when possible, to online formats. View fall 2021 mindfulness class schedule.
Through a partnership with Mindfulness Northwest, Balanced You offers Mindfulness classes, available to all employees. The courses support and provide relevant information to employees working to reduce stress and improve well-being.
Mindfulness is the simple yet powerful ability of the mind to attend more fully to the present moment’s experience. Cultivating mindfulness results in many benefits for mental and physical health, well-being, and happiness. Mindfulness works at the interface between the mind and our experience of our life.
