If you are just starting your mindfulness practice or if you are deepening it and learning new skills, come to Peak Brain and see how we can help you reap the benefits of an accessible and ancient practice with real brain benefits.
What is Mindfulness?
We define mindfulness as:
Paying attention, in a particular way, on purpose, to something specific, in the present moment, replacing judgement with inquiry.
Mindfulness has been shown to have many positive effects, including increased attention, reduced stress and better response to stress, better sleep, and greater sense of ease. Adopting a mindfulness practice may help reduce anxiety and develop attention, and can improve concentration, empathy, compassion, and resilience.
Who is it for?

What is Rhythm Training?
This is Peak Brain’s ongoing West African style Rhythm Training group, where we use traditional Malinke rhythms to get out of our heads and into our hands and bodies. The group is currently exploring the following rhythms: Kuku, Yankidi-Macru, Sofa, and Soli Rapide.
Why do it?
There is growing evidence that training in rhythm can improve brain function. It’s also a lot of fun!
Who is it for?
The class is suitable for beginning through intermediate players.
This class is led by our founder Andrew Hill.
When and where are the classes?
Our rhythm training class is currently on hiatus. Stay tuned for future updates.
The class is free and open to the public. Drums are provided.
