Seasonal transitions can be difficult for many reasons and can have an impact on your mind and body often referred to as stress. This program developed by Wellness Practitioner Ismael Rosa, RYT can help individuals focus on their mind and body during stressful seasonal transitions. This class is appropriate for everyone and no experience is required.
- Elasticity of the Mind: Improve concentration. Decrease over-thinking
- Strengthen the Core Body: Improve posture. Increase resilience to fatigue.
This practice was developed to increase the awareness of our mind in our body and how to honor them both through compassionate attention by mindfulness techniques and bodily awareness. Mindfulness has been shown to reduces stress, boost immune functioning, reduces chronic pain, lowers blood pressure, and helps patients cope with cancer.
Ismael has been in the fitness and wellness industry serving Lake County for nearly a decade. His company, Outpost CrossFit & Training Facility, has been recognized by the Lake County Children’s Advocacy Center as an outstanding contributor to the community.
He is a student of Yogi Wendy Dahl, owner of Blue Sun Yoga. His focus is in offering a mindfulness program to increase the connection between the community and individual purpose.

Tai Chi is an ancient system of movement and meditation, which aims to enhance our health, develop clarity of thinking and create inner calm. At Gurnee Counseling Center, our classes are fun and from the first class, giving students practices they can use in their daily life. Although we teach form, our emphasis is on learning about Chi (“vital energy”) and enjoying the slow, graceful, flowing Tai Chi movements.
