This “Free” workshop is a brief, fun and engaging way to become familiar with mindfulness. This practice has been credited with bringing about more healthful responses to the stressors of daily life. Through discussion, demonstration and practice, you will:
learn about mindfulness
practice a technique that is the basis of Mindfulness
decide upon a simple way to integrate a mindful practice into your life
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a conscious decision to pay attention to what is going on in the present moment. This means a moment-to-moment awareness of thoughts, emotions, physical sensations, and the surroundings. Mindfulness also means accepting these things without judgment. Things are not labeled right or wrong, good or bad. They are accepted for what they are. In this fast paced world, we often have unconscious reactions instead of conscious consideration. The opportunity to think quietly about choices related to our reactions is often nonexistent. Mindfulness creates a quiet space that enhances the ability to consider what is going on in the present moment.

"When I entered Sakula yoga studio, I felt immediately welcomed and knew that I had made the right choice to attend their teacher training program. I entered the YTT program not knowing what to expect, and not prepared for the inner changes and growth that have taken place. The instruction and support has given me the foundation to teach and continue to learn. It was an experience that has truly changed my life and I am thankful each day for it." Alicia - 2015
"I have been practicing yoga for over 12 years, and was one of SaKula Yoga's first students. I was interested in deepening my practice, but was not sure if I would be able to fit teacher training within my busy schedule. After hearing rave reviews from several of the students that completed the program, I decided to take the plunge. It turned out to be a wonderful experience. The schedule was quite manageable while working a full-time job. I enjoyed reading the books and exploring the topics that were covered. SaKula is very fortunate to have Sharon Jig Hong to lead the training; she is sweet, accommodating, knowledgeable, and vibrant. In addition, many of the teachers participated in our training, which provided us with additional perspectives and expertise. I am also grateful to the SaKula community for welcoming us into the classes. The opportunity to observe and assist the teachers was essential to help us build our confidence and teaching skills.
Thank you, Bonnie and Ro! " Angela - 2015
"YTT at Sakula was a beautiful experience. The curriculum offered a well-rounded education in the most important aspects of yoga, and throughout our studies we were encouraged to apply a yogic mentality to our whole lives. The program was well-paced to instill confidence in the teacher trainees and allowed us to attain the necessary knowledge to help share the healing practice of yoga with others. I loved being taught by a variety of teachers each bringing something special and personal to the class. The sincere care for our progress shown by Sharon, Ro and Bonnie, our mentors, and the guest teachers was remarkable and so appreciated. Sakula feels like home thanks to the love and support of those running the program, as well as the truly wonderful students who shared the experience and grew together as a team." Nettie - 2015
"My teacher training experience at Sakula was so much more than I ever imagined it would be. Each class was one I looked forward to.....from the topics covered; to the guest instructors, each with their own area of expertise; and the joy of learning with my fellow students. Sharon J.H. was a very genuine, accepting and supportive instructor. The warmth and support of the Sakula family provided a wonderful opportunity to grow spiritually, expand my knowledge in my personal practice, and find my own way to share yoga with others." - Sharon P. - 2014

I was one of Sakula’s first students, and I’m entering my sixth year of yoga practice at this wonderful studio. Sakula continues to be a very important part of my life. Congratulations, Bonnie and Ro, on entering Sakula’s sixth year, and thank you for providing us with such a wonderful place to practice! I’ve experienced great benefits from the practice of yoga – strength, flexibility, a way of moving mindfully and a quieting of the mind that I didn’t think possible. Bonnie and Ro have created something special for both Metuchen and the community of yoga – a warm, welcoming jewel of a place to enjoy your practice and the company of friends. The instructors are wonderful and there’s a wide variety of classes to choose from. Yoga, friends, laughter, and Bonnie & Ro…it doesn’t get any better than this! Cindy - Metuchen, NJ
