“Mindful Is the New Skinny” Boot Camp for Women

Learn concepts and meditation techniques to help reduce stress and find joy and peace




Jodi Baretz

Jodi Baretz, who has a mindfulnessbased psychotherapy practice at the Center for Health and Healing in Mount Kisco, will offer two sessions of Mindful Is the New Skinny, a six-week boot camp for women, in October and November. Participants will learn concepts and meditation techniques to help them reduce stress and find joy and peace, Baretz says, for “a lighter you, inside and out.”

Session options are Mondays from 1 to 2:30 p.m., October 16 through November 20, and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., October 18 through November 29 (excluding Thanksgiving week). Sign up before Labor Day for the early-bird price of $375.

Baretz hosts a Mindful Mom monthly discussion and meditation group first Fridays from 1 to 2 p.m., October through June, with other pop-up dates during the week. Visits cost $40 for a drop-in, $175 for a five-pack or $295 for a 10-pack.

“I created this program because most people struggle with the same issues in life, and while individual treatment works well, a group can be even more effective,” she says. “Women love the validation from other like-minded women. Meditation can be very powerful in a group setting as well.”

These groups are for women who tend to be “perfectionists, supermoms or diet burnouts” who are experiencing stress and anxiety, she notes. “The support, discussion and techniques teach a new way of being, which makes them feel more at peace with themselves and the world.”
