Healthy Acadia to host online program

ELLSWORTH — All are welcome to join Healthy Acadia on Thursday, March 3, from 5 to 6 p.m., via Zoom, for “Gentle Mindful Movement (Qigong and Yoga) and Positive Psychology,” with special guest Susan Sassaman.

This free online event is the latest installment in Healthy Acadia’s Monthly Mindfulness series.

Neuroscience research shows the connection between positive psychology and the health benefits of mindful movement classes. We can improve our health and cultivate happiness and well-being by incorporating mindful movement practices such as qigong and yoga into our regular routine. Sassaman will discuss how the ancient wisdom of combining breath and gentle movement can be transformative. Participants also will be invited to try a sampling of seated qigong and seated yoga postures.
