LACONIA — Laconia Adult Education is offering a four-week program on using meditation as a way to relieve stress.
The class, Meditation: Focusing Within, will begin on Monday, Jan. 26. The class will meet from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Huot Technical Center: Room CTC H-234. The class will be taught by Helen McConnell.
McConnell is a health educator who has seen firsthand the health issues associated with stress. This course is designed to help people cope with, and in some instances, eliminate the stressors in their lives. Those attending the course will learn simple but very effective techniques to minimize the effect of stress on your body. McConnell says she has found that the most effective and easiest way to ease or eliminate your stress is by learning to meditate and to understand the different methods of breathing which will help to relax and calm you.
The class will explain the physiology of stress and why meditation really works. You will learn about a variety of different meditations and breathing methods so that you can chose the one that works the best for you. The goal of the class is to teach students how to control the stressors in life in order to achieve better health and ways in which to use these techniques in your everyday life.
