Book Signing, Open House and Yoga Class with Dr. Megan Weigel
Monday Mantras with Megan, a book by nurse practitioner and yoga instructor Dr. Megan Weigel, appropriately launches on September 13, Positive Thinking Day. To celebrate, Weigel will teach a slow-flow donation-based yoga class incorporating poses mentioned in her book at Seaside Power Yoga, in Jacksonville Beach, on September 13 at 7:30 p.m. An open house gathering and book signing will follow from 8 to 9 p.m. Registration is required for the class, but people are welcome to drop in to the gathering from 8 to 9 p.m.
Monday Mantras with Megan is a lighthearted and approachable guide to a year of mindfulness intentions and actions in the form of simple practices to help improve one’s physical, emotional and mental health. Weigel draws from the spiritual, artistic and experiential disciplines that have most influenced her own life to provide a comfortable mindfulness program.
“We each have a cup of life to handle, and sometimes our cups start to overflow. Monday Mantras with Megan is a release valve to your filled-up cup,” shares Weigel, who specializes in neurological care in Jacksonville, where she brings a unique integrative medicine and holistic nursing perspective to her practice, First Coast Integrative Medicine.
“Each week, I offer an action with the intention of the mantra,” explains Weigel, who has been a multiple sclerosis (MS) certified nurse since 2005 and a nurse practitioner for more than 20 years. “Actions include yoga, breathwork, use of essential oils, and activities with color that support the experience of the mantra. These actions give people access to the depth of the mantra they may not find by just reading the words.”
Adds Weigel, “This will be the third year I have worked with these mantras. It’s amazing to me how, from their creation, through their development, and now into their release, the right mantra shows up at the right time in my life each week. I am so grateful to be able to share this with others.”
