Mindfulness at Adam Beck

We are pleased to invite parents and caregivers to a Mindfulness presentation by Janice May during our school council meeting on Thursday, November 25.

Janice has worked in the health and wellness industry for over 12 years, holding certifications in Yoga through Yoga Alliance, Fitness Instructor Specialist with Can Fit Pro and annually continues her study of movement and breath work through workshops and online education programs.

In 2013 Janice attended a 13 week mindfulness program for chronic pain and stress. It literally changed her life and she spent the next 8 years working on the clinical side assisting and co-facilitating programs such as MBCPM, MBSR and MBCT run by physicians. She completed the MBCPM Facilitator training via U of T Continuing Studies and the Neuro Nova Centre for Mindful Solutions and completed the MBSR TTI with the Centre of Mindfulness Studies under the wisdom and guidance of Susan Woods and Patricia Rockman. Janice is a founding member of the Mindful Society Global Institute.

Go Bears Go! Janice was also an Adam Beck parent for 8 years while her daughter attended AB. She was an active volunteer working with the Safe Arrival program, pizza lunch, school trips and coaching volleyball with Ms. Smith. Janice truly enjoyed her years at Adam Beck thanks to the staff and wonderful community.
