Please wear comfortable clothing and footwear and bring a yoga mat or thick towel for your use.

Some 30 minutes of meditation daily may improve symptoms of anxiety and depression, a new Johns Hopkins analysis of previously published research suggests. Madhav Goyal, M.D., M.P.H., an assistant professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and leader of a study published online January 6 in JAMA Internal Medicine notes, meditation has a long history in Eastern traditions, and it has been growing in popularity over the last 30 years in Western culture. “A lot of people have this idea that meditation means sitting down and doing nothing,” Goyal says. “But that's not true. Meditation is an active training of the mind to increase awareness, and different meditation programs approach this in different ways.”
