We are delighted to let you know that we have Free Wellbeing Sessions every Friday morning in The Place to Pause and Breathe, Bonnybridge. These have been funded via Falkirk's Community Mental Health and Wellbeing Fund.
These sessions are held on an ongoing basis by Pause & Breathe, and we are delighted to welcome a range of guest facilitators throughout the year. You can come to all of them, or drop in and out. Please do book though, so we know how many people to expect.
The sessions will be held in The Place to Pause & Breathe, on Fridays, from 10am-11am. After the session there is the option to stay until 11.30am for refreshments.
This session is "Yoga Foundation" with Jenny from Chaos and Calm Yoga.
The session is aimed at exploring some of the common building blocks of a physical practice as well as breath work and relaxation. It’s suitable for all whether you’ve never practiced yoga before or you’re a seasoned yogi looking to revisit some familiar territory. To make the session as accessible as possible we work at a gentle pace and offer lots of alternatives, we also encourage the use of tools and props to make the practice exactly you what want it to be.
Yoga leggings are not mandatory, just wear clothes that you feel you move comfortably in. We do suggest wearing layers and bringing a sweater as the practice is quite slow moving. If you have your own mat then please do bring along, and if you have any of your own yoga props like blocks or straps then do bring those as well. We will have some spares for those who are newer to yoga or don’t have props.
Everyone is welcome. Please don't worry about your level of mobility - everything that we do can be adapted for all bodies.

Meet your facilitator:
I’m Jen Gates (she/her). I’ve been practicing yoga myself for over 5 years and completed a 200 hour teacher training in May 2021. My training was in Yin and Hatha Yoga but I tend to use these as inspiration for my practice rather than hard and fast rules. I do like to work at a gentler pace regardless of the style of yoga and prefer to use the physical practice to help with understanding the less physical aspects of yoga. My favourite part of teaching yoga is when I see yogi's make their own choices - nothing pleases me more than someone is doing something different to the rest of the group.
