Mindful relaxation is a process of self-discovery; a process of diving within yourself to find a greater inner strength, greater self awareness and self-confidence, better health, emotional and mental harmony. It is a form of stress management, a process of recognising and transforming negative thoughts via various relaxation and breathing techniques, meditation and mindfulness exercises.

The mindful relaxation classes are suitable for anyone who wants to experience a greater sense of relaxation and well-being in their every day lives. The classes take place in an informal setting and are not aligned to any particular religion.

Expressive art is a way to explore your feelings – particularly those which can be difficult to put into words – with no skill or experience required.

Concentrating on creating art can help you slow down, relax and process your thoughts. Your unconscious mind can express feelings through pictures, colours and shapes that you might struggle to put into words. And by doing that you may begin to understand more what you’re feeling, which can help to build your confidence.
