Yoga & Mindfulness taught by Laura from Casting Light Yoga:
” I am an actress, mindfulness therapist, yoga teacher and co-founder of an accredited yoga and mindfulness based programme for children called ‘The Yo-Chi Programme’ which is now a national programme in schools. From a young age I have practiced yoga and meditation and had a fascination with the mind/body connection and as a young adult often found myself looking for ways I could explore my own personal and spiritual development.
So, what does it mean to be Mindful?
To be mindful means to be pay attention to the present moment in a natural, gentle, compassionate and curious way. This could be something internally like our thoughts, our body or our emotions or something external.
Mindfulness allows us to pay attention to, and see clearly what is happening in our lives. Whilst it cannot eliminate life’s challenges, the practice helps us to work with the present moment rather than dwell on the past or over worry about the future. The Yoga sessions I will be running on this day will be for all abilities and will be a very gentle practice, so if you haven’t tried Yoga please come along and give it a go.
Please book onto the sessions through the below RSVP links.
Comfortable clothing suitable for activities is recommended and wellies or sturdy shoes for the garden.
