Mindful Self Compassion at Hanover Yoga and Wellness

  • Hanover Yoga and Wellness 10035 Sliding Hill Road Ashland, VA, 23005 United States (map)

When you’re struggling, do you treat yourself as well as you’d treat a friend? If not, what would it take to give yourself the same caring attention? An empirically-supported course taught in 20+ countries, MSC shares powerful tools for healing, building inner strength, and increasing confidence and self-respect. Learn to motivate yourself with encouragement instead of criticism, cope with emotional challenges, cultivate more compassionate self-talk, and consciously savor the good moments in your life.

This is for you if you:

  • Are “too hard on yourself”

  • Would like to accept difficult feelings instead of fighting them

  • Are open to the work of self-discovery, even when it’s challenging
