We are very excited to be able to start organising fundraising events again, after a difficult year of various lockdowns, we thought we would organise a two-hour workshop, giving an introduction to Mindfulness and Yoga. Having the skills to help tackle everyday stresses on our mental health is becoming more and more essential. Mindfulness and Yoga is something that anyone can do and can help to manage every day challenges whilst allowing you to take some control over your own wellbeing. We are delighted to have this event supported by Luke Billings and Stacey Baxter who both have a huge amount of experience in teaching people the techniques to manage everyday stress and to release the anxiety people may be feeling. The workshop will run over two hours on Saturday 15th May at The Bridge Child and Family Centre.
