Power is from Within


 The Breath is one of the most powerful tools at our disposal for self-regulation, energy generation, and overall health.  Breath helps with stress reduction, pain management, lowering blood pressure, and eliminates disease state from forming.

Meditation is a practice that transforms the mind and develops concentration and clarity to promote peacefulness, healing,  rest and recovery.  

Benefits of Meditation:

Improves concentration and sustained attention

Improves sleep 

Improves stress management and increases awareness

Reduces anxiety and depression

Helps manage heart disease and hypertension and reduce pain levels

Improves personal satisfaction and happiness

 Meditation can be practiced in traditional forms (sitting meditation) or can be applied practically through walking, coloring or even in everyday chores or tasks.  Breath work and mediation are practices that foster mindfulness.

Mindfulness has been described as a state of active, open attention on the present.   Mindfulness means maintaining a moment to moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings and our surroundings.   Our coaching philosophy at WNY Life Coaching Center is Mindfulness-based.

This hour of energy restoration combines the modalities of visual meditation, mindful breath work and optional reiki. Each class will introduce a new practice of mindfulness as well as particular breathing technique with the intent to calm, restore and balance your mind, body and spirit. You are welcome to bring mats and blankets as most participants are inclined to relax by lying on the floor. You will also be provided with a tip sheet to encourage mindfulness in your daily living. The class is guided by Shawn Marie Cichowski, who is a certified Meditation Instructor C-MI as well as a Reiki Master and a Corporate Life & Wellness Coach. 

Class meets every 3rd Tuesday of the Month.
