Time: 9.30am – 12.30pm
If you are a new to mindfulness or a little out of practice this morning session is for you.
We aim to provide a relaxed, safe and fun space where you can have an experience of mindfulness through core practices, discussions and basic theory.
You will leave with a better understanding of what mindfulness is all about, options for further training and hopefully a little more relaxed.
Spaces are limited to ensure small group size
WHAT IS MINDFULNESS ANYWAY?
Contrary to popular belief, mindfulness is not about solving all our problems or sitting cross-legged on a white sandy beach (thanks Instagram) – It’s about learning how to work with our minds and bodies in ways that can help to reduce stress and increase wellbeing.
In short, mindfulness means being aware of what you are doing while you are doing it.
HOW CAN THIS HELP?
Increased awareness doesn’t sound like much right? However, training ourselves to be more present-focused and less judgmental can have surprising results such as:
- Reductions in stress and anxiety
- Improved immune system functionality
- Mood regulation
- Reductions in chronic pain
- Increased emotional resilience
