The Art of Slow: Understanding the Power of Slowing Down
4 Week Course Commencing Thursday 12th March, 6:15pm - 7:30pm
This course will help you to understanding the art of moving slow and the benefits it brings to our physical and mental wellbeing. Each week, the course will focus on different topics including yoga, mindfulness, daily rituals and an understanding of the nervous system.
We are living in a fast paced world. Everything is moving faster, our minds are constantly stimulated with information coming from many different sources. The result can be an information overload, more stress, overwhelm and anxiety, and insomnia.
There is an old paradigm of thinking that faster is better, but this is not the truth. Slowing down is very a powerful tool and has massive benefits to our health, mental clarity and to our overall wellbeing and productivity.
In this workshop, we will talk about the effects of moving at such a speed and how this impacts our physical and mental health . We will practice different tools and share some beneficial daily rituals including yoga, meditation and breathing practices, which we can easily incorporate in our daily life to help us slow down.
This workshop is a chance for us to really understand that we have the power to step out of our habits and create new ones that help us slow down, feel more energised, live more presently and achieve more in our lives.
