A Brief Story About The Connections
Looking for Wellness & Finding Passion
Connections Mind-Body Wellness isn’t just a business. It’s a place for you to become the best version of yourself – whatever that looks like! The beauty of mindfulness, meditation, and yoga is that there are no goals or achievements. These mind-body practices are tools for you to use in whatever ways suits you. Concentration? Yes. Stress relief? No doubt. Self-esteem? You’ll be amazed!
We created Connections with the hope of spreading wellness because that’s our passion. What’s yours?
I'm Kira Markoff, PhD, LCSW-C, CCTP, YTT200
Owner and Operator of Connections
That's a lot of letters, I know. Honestly, what it boils down to is just that I like to learn. So far, my learning has come from 3 different spaces - psychology, clinical (social work, mental health therapy), and yoga. I've come to believe that a major part of living in wellness is allowing yourself to acknowledge and follow through with your passion. I'm passionate about learning and then transforming what I've learned into something that I can share with others. This space is one realization of that passion. May it bring you peace and comfort.
Mindfulness and Me: A Practical Guide for Living
"Every beautiful and wonderful thing happens in the present moment... Being in the now also gives you the power to make changes. You can plan and prepare all you want, but it takes being in the moment and deciding to actually do something different in order to make a change in your life. Mindfulness is a practice of empowerment. It all starts here.” (Pg. 10-11)
