Meditation Workshop: A Resolution for Self Care

Stop, breathe and Upgrade your Mind

The Summit area YMCA is a nonprofit organization that believes the key to a healthy lifestyle is not just physical activity, but mental as well. 

It's more important than ever to take time for yourself. Whether you're an individual or a family looking for a way to relax and have time together, meditation may be the answer.

The Summit Area YMCA is hosting a group meditation workshop on December 8th at 1:00 p.m. to teach those who are curious about the benefits of meditation, how to meditate, and how to develop a regular meditation practice. This is a great way to learn more about meditation!

This workshop will be led by our very own Dr. Beatrice Schwarzkopf who is not only a yoga teacher at the SAY, she is also a licensed psychologist, certified school psychologist, and Certified Mindfulness Informed Professional. She earned her doctor of psychology degree (Psy.D.) from Pace University. She is a 500-hour registered yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance and has completed a number of trainings in yoga, meditation, health, and wellness

In 1886, we were founded as the Young Men's Christian Association, but today, we are The Y. An association that values, and is made stronger by, its diverse people. We stand for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility — For a better us. We are committed to creating equal opportunity for all regardless of gender, age, disability, income, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religious affiliation. We strive to create a welcoming and inclusive culture in which our four core values — responsibility, honesty, caring and respect — are integral to everyday operations.

Each year, as one of the area’s leading 501(c)3 charitable organizations, the Summit Area YMCA serves more than 15,000 individuals with our free and fee-based programs and services in an area spanning the New Jersey communities of Berkeley Heights, Gillette, Millburn, New Providence, Short Hills, Springfield, Stirling and Summit. Our history is rooted in working side-by-side with our neighbors to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Through the generosity of our members, donors, and partners, we are able to offer financial assistance for our programs and services to those in need.
