SUNDAY RESTORATIVE WORKSHOPS
Restorative yoga encourages us to connect with a sense of natural ease and deep relaxation. Supported by various props, the yoga postures require no physical effort and become deeply rejuvenating. This practice restores the nervous system, greatly reducing stress and encouraging a healthy balance of activity and rest, movement and stillness.

MIND-BODY AWARENESS TRAINING
Mind-body awareness – for people who work with people!
This training is based on the principles of yoga and mindfulness, exploring the relationships between what we do, how we are and the effects this has on our life and those we come into contact with, especially in the workplace. It consists of two workshops of 2 - the first focussing on self and the second exploring how our learning applies to our relationships.
Participants are introduced to a variety of exercises and techniques to develop self-awareness. This is a practical and interactive exploration of how environmental factors combined with our physical and mental habits can affect our state of mind.
We examine how this self-awareness allows us to be clear, present and effective in our interactions with others and how it can be applied to the dynamics of working relationships
Both sessions are structured around the experience and needs of those attending.
