What does it do to your brain, nervous system and body? How can practicing mindfulness allow you to cultivate a skillful presence in your daily lives? These are a few questions we will explore in this short talk. Discover how the brain can change through mindfulness practices, and how it can allow you to expand your Window of Tolerance so you can navigate changes and challenges with more ease and grace. ABOUT RIA Ria Tirazona is a yoga facilitator, educator, and licensed psychologist from the Philippines. She specializes in psychological assessment and integrates embodiment, movement and mindfulness in her practice of psychotherapy. She believes that change begins with awareness, presence and tenderness. As an educator in various types of learning environments for over 20 years, she hopes to co-create nourishing spaces that empower others in discovering their personal path to wellness through trauma-informed, accessible, mental health aware practices such as yoga, embodiment, meditation and mindfulness. She is trained in alternative healing modalities such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, Traditional Thai Massage, and Trauma-Informed Yoga and Yoga Therapy, and is an Accessible Yoga Ambassador. As a mental health professional, she regularly conducts workshops and training on mental health and facilitates wellness and mindfulness programs for individuals, corporations and organizations locally and internationally. A self-confessed emotional eater, her struggle with weight has opened her up to new ways of celebrating her body and treating herself with love and compassion. Her nurturing yet playful classes are relaxing while being surprisingly challenging. She emphasizes building strength and functionality in movement while harnessing softness in the body and mind and encourages folks to contemplate on what things might be like if we moved from a place of possibility rather than expectation.
