Interactive Break: Creating Movement through Mindfulness (NAMPC 2021)


Ashlee McKinnon 

About this Session

This session will allow participants to settle their bodies and minds in order to create meaningful movement. Using verbal, auditory, and visual cues, participants will become more aware of how their daily routines can be used to create meaningful movement for themselves. Let's come together and create meaning.

This session is a part of the 2021 National Arts Marketing Project Conference.
