NEXT MINI FIRST AID – Wednesday 26 February 2020
Yoga and meditation workshop
After the Body has been stimulated and opened with a restorative yoga practice and soothed with a deep relaxation period it enters the seldom experienced state of harmonious equilibrium.
This is the optimum time to proceed with Meditation and to go further into a physical and psychological state which takes brain activity into a much calmer mode of being.
After a Yoga Class we ordinarily roll up our mats and walk out the door back into our busy and engaging lives without having taken this time to seal in the deeply healing and restorative side to our practice.
In this Workshop you will get the chance to experience Meditation and to fully appreciate the benefits that it brings, if you have never tried it why not come along and give it a go, it might just be something that you add into your life on a regular basis.
We will address the correct sitting posture and discuss the impediments which can often get in the way of a meditation practice. There are many benefits to learning and incorporating how to bring a more balanced and stoic attitude to life which can reward the individual and influence the situation they are dealing with, whether it be work, home, or relationships.
In times of increasing stress in daily life this simple practice will assist you in coping. Instead of speeding up and becoming ever more busy why not look into the idea of going in the other direction and at least spending a little time considering what is it you can do less of to give yourself a more balanced life.
This simple practice is deeply beneficial in multiple ways and full of rewards to those who learn to incorporate it in their lives. Classes are run by Philip Martin.

What is transformational Breath®?
Transformational Breath® is a safe, dynamic, self-help technique that enables us to open and fully activate our respiratory system. This action floods the body with oxygen, the fuel our body needs for energy and healing. The benefits are numerous as this practice helps to resolve the effects of stress and suppressed emotions; from childhood traumas to addictions and habits that keep us stuck in a vicious cycle of negativity and fear. It eases grief, gives an outlet for anger and restores empowerment in place of fear. Each session gives you new physical, mental and emotional ‘tools’ to use on a daily basis to meet the challenges of life head-on. Using this technique brings a heightened awareness of the spiritual self: calm, confident, connected to the divine and at peace. These sessions bring about insights and revelations that support psychological understanding and personal development.
Although this is not a medical treatment, some of the uses of Transformational Breath® are to resolve conditions such as insomnia, headaches, aches and pains generally, breathing problems, digestive issues, fatigue, mood swings, panic attacks and constant ill health.
A Transformational Breath® workshop will last 3 hours
Introductory offer: £25 (normally £30)
