Mindfulness is both a skill and an attitude toward living that originated thousands of years ago as part of Buddhist philosophy. According to the Buddha, mental suffering (or inner stress) occurs because we cling to positive experiences, not wanting them to end, and we strive to avoid pain, sadness, and other negative experiences. If you're a interested in building a strong foundation of HOW to practice mindfulness, using an approach that is based on science and reason, then this is the course for you! We meet together as an online group once every 2 weeks, where we discover different ways of practising mindfulness. Worksheets are given and journalling, coming together as a group makes us so much stronger. We also perform a different style of meditation or mindfulness exercise each session.
Now you can receive meditation training from the comfort of your own home with online classes. Check out the events page for the next class. Sharon also has a diploma course in Meditation Teacher for those interested in becoming certified to run their own sessions.
These workshops are focused around different themes. They are in class sessions as we get creative and learn LOTS! Currently suspended due to Covid 19.

How does Restorative Yoga work?
When our body achieves this stableness we activate our Parasympathetic Nervous System which is known as the “rest and digest” nervous system. The contrast is the Sympathetic Nervous System which is our “fight or flight” nervous system.
