We are delighted that continued grant funding has allowed us to again offer this workshop in October 2020, along with a Level 1 Teacher Training program. Our hope is that a community of practice will evolve in Westchester that can continue to bring these simple, evidence-based techniques to youth and adult audiences across Westchester County.
In support of the work of the Westchester Resilience Coalition, Westchester Library System invites the public and service professionals to learn more about a set of breathing techniques proven to reduce stress and improve mood. The program of accessible exercises, known as BREATH-BODY-MIND™ (BBM), is offered as a resilience skill set that can support individuals and communities. In October 2019, more than 90 people participated in a WLS-sponsored Breath-Body-Mind Introductory Workshop led by Dr. Richard Brown and Dr. Patricia Gerbarg, recognized pioneers in evidence-based integrative medicine.
