Class helps to reduce stress
The University of Hawaii at Hilo College of Continuing Education and Community Service will offer an eight-week “Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction” (MBSR) class beginning Sept. 28.
The class meets every other Saturday from 1:30 to 6 p.m., with a retreat day scheduled for Nov. 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Taught by Bernie Schreck, M.A., this in-depth program helps participants manage the symptoms of stress, chronic illness or pain and improve their quality of life through diverse techniques such as guided meditation, gentle, mindful yoga and breathing exercises.
Schreck has been teaching Mindfulness Meditation for more than 20 years and also has professional training in MBSR. The fee for this course is $500, but CCECS is offering it at a special introductory rate of $150 to make it affordable to the greater community.
