Daniel Turissini

Biography
A native Washingtonian, Daniel's first brush with meditation came as a burned-out corporate professional desperately seeking a non-pharma way to alleviate stress and anxiety. Since his first meditation at the Smithsonian, his passion for wellness led to intense study of stress, sleep, and mindfulness as well as formal MBSR training and certification. Daniel's style, while grounded in the latest evidence-based research, is approachable and designed as a training ground for the mind to exercise cognition, creativity, and compassion. Daniel looks forward to seeing you on the cushion!

ABOUT MY CLASS

de-stress
Discover how to relax the nervous system, reduce stress, and reframe the brain’s bias to hold onto negativity. In this session, we connect mind, body and brain, through deep breathing, mindfulness and guided visual meditation, activating the relaxation response and bringing ourselves back to equilibrium.

Unwind and unpack the day with de-stress meditation that aims to attune your awareness to your senses. Focus on body functions such as breath and pulse can be cultivated to bring us back to homeostasis through the power of the mind. Drop your cortisol levels; regulate pulse and adrenals; increase your sense of calm and ease so you can enjoy the pleasures of life.

mindfulness
Attuned awareness is the first stage to cultivating a life experience of ease and contentment. The ability to fully notice our surroundings and our relationship to them is a skill that can be refined through the practice of mindfulness meditation. Reawaken to the internal and external experiences of the present moment through practices that cultivate awareness, self-regulation, and the capacity for presence.

The practice of mindful awareness has a variety of well-documented impacts, including a reduction in toxic stress, an increase in emotion regulation, and an improvement in sustained attention, focus and executive functioning.
