Tracy Ochester, PsyD, RYT 200 is a psychologist, certified Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy teacher, and yoga teacher who provides mindfulness coaching online and in her office in the Beacon Hill area of downtown Kansas City, MO. She also leads mindfulness classes, workshops, and retreats across the Kansas City metro and beyond.
Mindfulness is a psychological state of non-judgmental awareness of moment by moment experience. Research is showing that mindfulness can reduce stress, rumination, and emotional reactivity while improving concentration, working memory, and kindness and compassion. Some other possible benefits of mindfulness include increases in:
- self-awareness and insight
- flexibility of thinking
- processing speed
- relationship and life satisfaction
- general mental well-being
This state of mind is conspicuously lacking in the lives of most modern Americans, perhaps contributing to the many mental and physical health consequences we suffer from. Fortunately, mindfulness can be cultivated through adopting certain attitudes and practices. As your mindfulness coach, Dr. Ochester can assist you in your journey toward greater mindfulness in your daily life.
Interested in keeping up to date with Dr. Ochester’s offerings (classes, 8-week courses, workshops & retreats) and news about the local mindfulness community? You can do so by signing up for her monthly newsletter, The Last Vinyasa.
