Mindfulness topic of WEW meeting

The Dubois County women’s leadership organization, Women Empowering Women, will gather on Wednesday, Aug. 21, at the St. Joseph Church Parish Center, 1029 Kundek St., Jasper.

Doors will open at 11:30 a.m. for networking before the meeting begins at 11:45 a.m. This event is open to all prospective and current WEW members.

The mission of Women Empowering Women is to inspire women in business to reach their highest potential by instilling confidence, building networks, and promoting community in Dubois County.

WEW welcomes Lydia Lagenour, owner of Fire Horse Yoga LLC to speak on the topic of mindfulness. Mindfulness is a powerful way to handle stress and live life more fully. The best part is, it can be practiced anytime and anywhere. Lagenour will share the healing effects of mindfulness for personal well being and for the benefit of one’s local community.

After learning about mindfulness, attendees will experience it as Lagenour leads them through a mindfulness exercise and meditation. In closing, participants will be given tools to use in everyday life, including a resource guide to further explore mindfulness and a daily meditation exercise to try.

Additionally, a Private Yin Yoga Class will be offered for WEW members from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 29, at Fire Horse Yoga located on Courthouse Square, Jasper. Yin yoga is slow moving and perfect for beginners. Mats are available for participants to borrow. There is a $4 member fee to attend. Space is limited. Reserve a spot by emailing Lagenour at firehorseyogastudio@gmail.com or texting 812-630-3378.
