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 Therapy for Stress & Anxiety" with Lisa from The Yoga Social.
Therapeutic yoga and mindfulness are well known to improve stress, anxiety and depression. Research reveals that faster and more long term healing occurs through intelligent integration of mind and body techniques. In this session we will explore some effective tools that can be integrated into the everyday and share some of the neuroscience and physiology behind their effectiveness. This session will involve movement, breathwork and mindfulness meditation. It is open to all bodies and abilities and can be accessible from a chair or mat. All are welcome.
Wear comfy clothes, and having a blanket with you would be useful.
Everyone is welcome. Please don't worry about your level of mobility - everything that we do can be adapted for all bodies.
