Take A Moment To Be Present

05/03/2021

The last year has tested everyone in some way or another. I know it's had an impact on myself and my family in many ways. With that in mind, I'm happy to say that I'm collaborating with 3 other local St Albans businesses, to put on an online retreat called 'Moments of Mindfulness'.

This is not your usual mindfulness course. For some people, mindfulness conjures up the idea of sitting with your eyes closed in complete silence - which for many just doesn't feel achievable, so they never try it. But the reality is mindfulness is simply about being present and focused on one activity.

MOMENTS OF MINDFULNESS was born from a desire to make mindfulness easy, accessible and fun for everyone. It will teach you techniques to help you reduce your stress levels and feel calmer in as little as 15-20 minutes a day.

This programme will show you that you can introduce simple, fun moments of mindfulness into your daily life which bring a huge array of positive health benefits.

Research has shown that mindfulness can help to:

• Reduce anxiety and stress

• Boost immune function

• Improve brain function and focus

• Lower blood pressure

• Create a feeling of calm

• Improve mood

So if you're feeling stressed, anxious or overwhelmed by life right now, join us for 5-days of mindfulness, which will leave you feeling

• Energised

• Positive

• Calmer

• Focused

We're mindful of the fact that many of us are spending too much time glued to our screens so our sessions will be live online for just 15-20 mins each day. We'll introduce each technique and you can then carry on with the activities in your own time offline. Recordings of every sessions will be sent out the following day if you can't join us live.


Sessions during the programme include:

Mindful creativity - make your own beaded rainbow brooch, with Sam Giles from Bead Creative.

Mindful movement - yoga, breath and visualisation with Anna from Anna Banana Yoga.

Mindful eating - healthy snack making demo and nutrition talk with Bethany from Eat, Breath, Believe.

Mindful dance - exercise your body and mind with Nicola from Pixie Studios.

Want to get your children involved? Some sessions will be suitable for kids (these will be clearly labelled) and they can join in for free!
