In its simplest form, mindfulness means paying attention to being aware of the present moment. Research from 163 different studies suggested that mindfulness meditation practice had a positive effect on improving anxiety and stress (Source: Headspace). It’s also a proven way to increase resilience, emotional intelligence and communication in the workplace.
We offer mindfulness workshops and courses, as well shorter guided meditation sessions.
Join a host of Stretching the City clients who enjoy weekly or fortnightly 30-45 minute meditation classes at their office. These highly effective calming classes work on a drop-in basis, whereby employees attend as and when they can. These shorter sessions are an ideal fit for lunchtime, or a short break during working hours and take place in a meeting room or boardroom. Teaching the core principles of mindfulness meditation, these sessions are mainly practice-based and help cultivate a connection to the present moment - which in turn can lead to improved productivity, morale and mood and reduced stress. We advise you partake in the 60 minute 'Introduction to Mindfulness' workshop to learn the foundations of mindfulness before embarking on these shorter sessions.
"We learned so much in the introductory Mindfulness course and will definitely be using Stretching The City for follow-up sessions later this year."
