Course overview

One will often go to a yoga or tai chi class, take a meditation session and try to be mindful when out on a nature walk, yet how often do we tie it all together into a more peaceful and coherent lifestyle? This course will show you how. It aims to teach the practical skills for the practice and delivery of mindfulness, movement and meditation techniques and exercises and also the knowledge and understanding of how to weave these elements together for maximum benefit in life. You can do the course for your own self development or you can share your knowledge with others, informally or in a teaching context. The course provides you with material for teaching classes and workshops or for incorporation into therapy work you already undertake.
