WORKSHOP: A Practical Guide to Mindfulness Meditation
A Practical Guide to Mindfulness Meditation
BREAKING DOWN THE MYTHS AND TRUTHS OF MINDFULNESS MEDITATION
There’s a lot of myths around what meditation is, and what it isn’t. Many people think that meditation is about emptying the mind of all thoughts. People say things like, “I can’t meditate because I have a busy mind.” Well what if I told you that at least when it comes to mindfulness meditation, it isn’t about emptying the mind? And yes, meditation eventually leads to greater peace and calm within, but it’s a process, and just because you don’t walk away with tranquility each time, it doesn’t mean it isn’t working. Join this workshop on zoom where I will offer you practical tools and steps to receive the benefits of your meditation no matter what shape and form it looks and feels like, and how to bring greater mindfulness into your life.

Julie MoksimCo-owner & Yoga InstructorI’m Singaporean by birth, global citizen by lifestyle, having lived in Indonesia, Egypt and India as a child and young adult, and later in the United States, Laos and Myanmar. My spark for yoga began while I was living in Boston in 2003, but my calling to teach grew much later out of the joy that I developed as a teacher’s assistant at the studio that I attended regularly. After completing a teacher training in Bali with Rachel Hull, Anna Smallwood, Emil Wendel, James Newman and Dr. Sujatha Kekada in 2011, I moved to Laos and started a yoga cooperative called Luang Prabang Yoga. Both the yoga cooperative and the immersive retreat programs that I lead under Laos Yoga Retreats have in some ways, put Laos on the map as a destination for yoga. I also co-owned a yoga studio in Myanmar between 2017 and 2019. My partnership with Kathy and Urban Yogis has grown out of a collective purpose to share knowledge and bridge the gap between people of different cultures, languages and belief systems. I trust that when a group of people come together from all walks of life, the opportunity for learning is boundless. Yoga has been an essential platform for these gatherings and for experiences that create more open-minded humans. Today, the biggest influence in my practice and teachings is Edward Clark of Tripsichore Yoga. He reinforces the importance of authenticity in how we express ourselves in movement. Ultimately, this translates to authenticity in life. I’d like to say to people out there, don’t be afraid to find out who you are, and when you find that person, don’t be afraid to be the person that you are!
