Each session involves lying down and movement, with an emphasis on taking care of your body and only doing what is right for you.
Tuesday April 23 from 6.45-8.45 pm for five weeks costing £53
The course will help you to:
i) Develop self-awareness skills
Through relaxation practices and group activities, we learn techniques to calm and settle us. We discover what is important to us and explore the benefits of being more aware in daily life.
ii) Find new ways to connect with others
Feeling close to and valued by other people is a fundamental human need. We find out how connection with others can make a significant difference to our health and wellbeing.
iii) Learn how to release unhelpful tension and breathe well
In this session, we explore new ways to look after our body to reduce tension, strain and pain.
iv) Keep active
Regular physical activity is essential for slowing age-related decline and for promoting wellbeing. This session includes easy stretching, slow Tai Chi-style movement, gentle movement with awareness while sitting and lying down, as well as mindful walking.
v) Give yourself time to rest and recharge
In this session, we identify activities and goals for self-care to support our health and wellbeing.
No previous experience required.
As this course includes noticing sensations of the breath and the body, it may be better to wait if you are experiencing traumatic or highly stressful life events or if you are currently experiencing acute psychological or physical health conditions.
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring extra layers to keep you warm while sitting and lying in stillness. Please bring a yoga-type mat, a small towel to fold and rest your head on and a blanket to keep you warm.
