Mindful Movement Workshop
The Art of Mindful Movement
Mindful Movement is an alternative approach to Mindfulness training that uses the moving body as the primary meditative tool – making it one of the easiest and most powerful ways to integrate Mindfulness into your everyday life.
More about the Workshop:
A unique blend of Mindfulness, Martial Arts practices and up to the minute Neuroscience - this insightful and energizing workshop explores the fascinating links between Mindfulness, movement and the brain. The afternoon will include a mix of theory, discussion and practical exercises. You will learn how to:
- Meditate anytime, anywhere – whilst on the move
- Tap into your brain’s neural circuits in a new and profound way
- Achieve an alert mind in a relaxed body – the optimum state of being
Suitable for all levels including:
- Busy people with limited time for formal practice
- Those who struggle with more traditional seated meditations
- People who want to deepen or expand an existing Mindfulness practice
This is NOT an exercise class requiring any particular level of fitness. It is a Mindfulness training workshop that uses very gentle movement exercises to illustrate key learning points.
