The course has been carefully constructed to ensure maximum benefit. A layered approach is taken. We start with more of a physical practice in the initial weeks and then we build from this foundation. Slowly introducing more mindfulness and some phycho-education. Each week has a key learning and outcome.
- Grounding - Feel supported, focusing on the breath and understanding our posture and how posture affects breath.
- Creativity - Flow with some dynamic yoga.Pulsate with some rhythmic tunes and lose some inhibitions.
- Strength - Find your willpower to succeed in overcoming challenges.
- Love - Develop self love, stop the inner critic and recognise your qualities.
- Voice - Make some noise and find the courage to speak your truth without fear or judgement.
- Intuition - Understand who you are, set intentions and feel empowered. Take back control and move forwards with new insight and understanding.
