The weekend will be facilitated by experienced and specialist members of faculty in personal resilience and mindfulness.
Mindfulness is our capacity to pay attention on purpose, in the present moment with an attitude of care and compassion. Mindfulness, which is cultivated using techniques like meditation and yoga, enables people to become more aware of themselves, others and the world around them. It increases their appreciation of each moment.
Yoga is the science of getting to know yourself through movement and breath. We spend most of our lives living in our minds, yoga brings awareness of our bodies, along with strength and flexibility. Yoga is calming for the mind and helps to regulate the nervous system. Practices can be dynamic or passive, but all can be adapted to accommodate where your body is at the moment. Our yoga sessions are suitable for beginners as well as experienced participants.
