Six-Week Mindfulness Course
The subject of mindfulness and meditation is about having tools to deal with and take care of our minds, to become aware of, and to handle stress better. To not be so caught up in our stuff but to be able to create a little space around things, room to breathe.
If that sounds good to you then you'll definitely want to join us for this course!
The course starts on Monday 22 January and will finish on Monday 26 February. Dates to be announced soon. Led by by Katie Fobbester, each session will be from 7pm-8pm online via Zoom. You can join us from the comforts of your own home.
This course consists of 6 weekly online sessions which will last 60 minutes. The course will start on Monday 22 January, with the final session being on Monday 26 February.
Each week will build upon the lessons from the previous one. In each session, you will be lead through both mindfulness theory and practice.
You will also gain skills to build your own mindfulness practice which you can use to help ground you. Once established, a mindfulness practice can help you to lead a healthier, richer and more balanced life. You will be given meditations to practice at home so you start building your practice from the off!

It doesn't matter whether you've practised mindfulness before or not, this course is suitable for everyone.
A health and fitness industry veteran and mother of 5 children, Katie connected to yoga to find calm amidst stresses and strains of a large family and busy life. She qualified as a yoga teacher with Lumi Power Yoga.
Katie did her formal mindfulness training with Pete Cherry, a Zen Buddhist, and then took a course with the Oxford school of mindfulness. There she studied a combination of MBSR (mindful based stress reduction) and MBCT (mindful based cognitive therapy) mindfulness techniques.
Katie feels that you can only learn so much from others, the real learning comes from self discovery of your own practice. 'My mindfulness practice is the most valuable tool I have in my life.'
