Intellectual Wellness: Mindful Self-Defense with Jeffery Jones
The concepts of mindfulness and self-protection go back a thousand years. In many ways, the mindful side of self-protection has been forgotten, but it is not lost. This block of instruction will focus on the Mind/Body/Spirit triad of protecting oneself or others that depend on you.
Topics discussed will include: mindset and reading threats, self defense tools you carry every day, and knowing your physical limits. You will learn to detect your attacker’s vulnerabilities and in-turn use them to your advantage. You also will better understand your capabilities and weaknesses, all while you learn to make spiritual preparations to defend what you choose to defend.
This instruction will include a lecture portion (Mind), meditation portion (Spirit) and physical instruction (Body).
WHAT TO BRING / WEAR:
Dress comfortably in fitness attire.
Bring a yoga mat & water bottle.
This class works best with a partner!
