Course Outcomes

The course will help you to learn new skills to:

i) Develop your self-awareness to restore ease and calm

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) Enhance interpersonal relationships

We explore how we relate to others and find out how connection with others can make a significant difference to our health and wellbeing.

iii) 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) Help you take better care of our body

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 explore activities 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.

Materials Required

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.
