Moving Mindfulness

Mindfulness is not just about sitting learning to meditate. Mindful movement is a powerful way to explore the nature of our experience, and may in fact work better for some people. There are many different forms of mindful movement. One of these is yoga, an age-old deeply meditative practice to energise and enliven the body and to calm things down in the mind. Alison has more than 15 years experience as a teacher of safe inclusive yoga.
