FireFlex Yoga - Shannon McQuaide
FireFlex Yoga Virtual or In-Person Mindfulness Trainings
First Responders experience an average of 800 traumatic incidents during their career. Mindfulness provides a refuge to process these experiences and to offset the effects of chronic stress. You can practice mindfulness in the station, on the rig, or after a critical incident. It’s the practice of paying attention to the present moment with kindness and curiosity. This seemingly simple skill can be challenging to practice, but has impactful benefits when applied as a daily habit.
Instructor Shannon McQuaide leads Mindfulness Trainings, virtually or in-person, for First Responders. Contact Shannon to create a customized training for your agency.
Shannon also hosts conversations with Fire Chiefs, First Responders, and Paramedics discussing wellness obstacles and solutions;
the library of interviews can be viewed here.
