Each of the weekly sessions will incorporate guided practices, a presentation talk based on the theme and its link to the practice of mindfulness. The session will bring together others who have similar interests based on the topic, along with new connections and shared experiences.
Monday evening group: 5:30 – 6:30 pm
Michele Pola, Ed.D.
Thursday morning group: 8:30 – 9:30 am
All classes are currently delivered through Zoom, an online meeting tool. When in person classes become a safe possibility, we may move to in-person class delivery in our Houston studio. At that point, students will have the choice to join each class in-person or through Zoom.
Mindful Being Studio
4544 Post Oak Place Dr., Suite 100
Houston, Texas 77027
*NOTE: Please be sure to type this address exactly into your navigation app as there are several variations of the Post Oak street name in our area. We want to be sure that you are specifically routed to our building.
There is free parking available in the front and rear of our office building. For students attending the night classes, we want you to know there is a security guard on staff.
Please note that the building doors lock at 6pm, so you will need to enter through the back door of the building — this is where the security guard is located.
Other Items to Note:
(Applies to both our Zoom online classes and the in-person classes at our studio)
Come as you are, and be comfortable. Some of our students may be in business attire, and others in workout clothes.
Class is experiential and includes some teaching, as well as practices with discussion. No one is pressured to speak.
We recommend that you arrive 5 minutes before class starts. If you are going to arrive late, that it is fine, but it is best to be on time to be respectful of the group. We all understand that sometimes things happen beyond our control, however, and we would rather have you come late than not at all.
If you miss a class or two, you can make it up for free the next time the class is offered. You can also take the full course again for free. If you prefer, you can arrange an individual session to make up the class(es) missed at a cost of $125/class. If you are going to miss more than two sessions, we recommend that you do not take the class.
You are allowed to bring food and beverages. We offer water, tea, and coffee at our studio at no charge.
There is no need to take notes. Our instructors will provide summaries of each class as handouts (or sent via email).
