In celebration of trees and woodland, we are supporting London Tree Week (27 May – 4 June 2017), with the help of the Mayor of London.
A chance to learn some techniques to become more mindful and calm the chattering mind, in the company of health coach, Mel Sutton. Also discover some of the healing and health aspects of trees.
A core element of Mel Sutton’s Mindfulness through Movement programme is to give you the skills to be mindful in your everyday activities, so you can seek moments throughout the day to be mindful, rather than having to attend a class specific session.
To achieve this we begin by focussing on the breath and it’s rhythm, to calm the mind and relax the nervous system. Once you are in touch with the rhythm of your breath we will then practice a few movement exercises based on Yoga principles to begin to connect to breath and body. And finally we will bring it all together using the rhythm of the breath and the rhythm of step to allow for a flowing mindful meditation. This is a powerful way to feel the body and breath and the connection to your surroundings.
No previous experience is necessary and a notebook is provided to record any experiences you wish to treasure.
Please wear comfortable footwear and bring a bottle of water if it’s hot. We also recommend bringing minimal bags so you can enjoy this event without carrying too much!
This free walkshop has been made possible through the support of the Mayor of London.
