Experience Mindfulness

Mindfulness is the art of being present and aware of what's happening right here and now in a non-judgemental way. There are many different ways to be mindful, so you can find the method that works best for you.

Stress, worries or feelings of anxiety can get in the way of doing what you want or need to do. Mindfulness tools and strategies can help you manage and overcome those obstacles.

“Just make your way to the YMCA

You can come and feel seen
You can learn how to heal
Come along for some help that's real”

Kiah's Story

I was struggling in a difficult situation while feeling isolated in a new town and I just couldn’t cope. The YMCA Youth Mindfulness program provided me with a space to let my emotions out and connect with people similar to myself so that I didn’t feel so alone.
