We'll be heading to Lac des Gaillands, so we can meet there, or at another pre-agreed place in central Chamonix. Please bring a yoga mat or a towel, blanket and/or cushion to sit on. We'll start with an explanation of what Mindfulness is and isn't. I'll talk you through some of the research-based evidence for its benefits and I'll guide you through a formal meditation practice (a breath focused meditation). We'll go on to discuss in further detail some additional ways in which you can practice mindfulness (a body scan and some informal daily practices you can take away with you). Then I'll guide a gentle flow yoga (tailored for you personally). We'll end with a nice gentle closing Mindfulness meditation. I'll be happy to give you some good tips and suggestions for your stay in Chamonix and these can be discussed when we've finished over a warm cup of herbal tea at the location or at a lovely local coffee or tea shop (depending on the weather)!
I'm a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapist and incorporate a Mindfulness based approach to my work (part of my training and something I practice daily for myself and with clients). I'm also a keen yogi and have been practising personally for 9 years. I completed the first part of my formal training in summer 2018. I'm continuing my formal training this year . I'm looking forward to welcoming you to Chamonix (where I've lived for the last 6 years) and sharing some of the wonderful nature and wellness I'm lucky enough to take advantage of daily!
Herbal tea and healthy snacks.
