The evening will combine practical tips and exercises from the worlds of mindfulness, CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) and reiki. Enjoy a taster of meditation, holistic therapy, breathe work, CBT techniques and reiki.

How often do you catch yourself either ‘rushing’ or ‘doubting’? You will find that almost every negative state falls into one of these two categories. Notice how these actions are contractions in your body, causing tightness and constriction, perhaps in your belly, heart, hands, eyes.

The word “mindfulness” tends to conjure up images of sitting cross-legged on the floor meditating….but fear not, because in this workshop we won’t be holding long periods of silence. We will look at some simple practices that you can apply to everyday living that will make your day more productive and your sleeping more restful.

Everyday life provides us with endless opportunities for us to STOP, TO FOCUS, to remind ourselves to be fully awake and present to what is happening NOW.  We will look at a few activities from your daily life that you can turn into ‘mindfulness bells’, an opportunity for you to slow down, become present and recognise how we have become stuck on auto pilot, when instead you have the opportunity to re-programme your brain, and SIMPLY BE.  We will look at a few simple practices to help you to achieve a more attentive and efficient lifestyle.

The CBT section of the evening will focus on how you can free up time for yourself. Very often we fall into a pattern of working and looking after family and leave no time for ourselves. We will look at the ratio of work, rest and play activities that make up our week and examine the benefits of introducing some time for ourselves. You will also learn some top tips on the best way to plan and schedule new activities and what to do if we get side-tracked by unforeseen activities.

We hope to see you there!

All levels

These classes have been specifically designed to allow participants to work at their own intensity level, with the ability to modify all exercises according to their own personal fitness.

Beginner

A person new to training or an individual with below average fitness levels can be termed as a beginner. These classes are also suitable for those returning to exercise after a break/injury.

Intermediate

A person training at intermediate level should have a fair amount of base fitness and coordination and thus can be exposed to a higher intensity workout.

Advanced

At an advanced level, the participant should have experience in subjecting themselves to high intensity training on a regular basis. Every person starting off as a beginner should aspire to reach this level.

Online booking is available for members for classes, activities and spa treatments.
Non-members can book our spa treatments online, and please call 01983 766222 to book classes or activities.
