Mindfulness is a way of paying attention to the present moment, using techniques like meditation, breathing and yoga. It helps us become more aware of our thoughts and feelings, so that instead of being overwhelmed by them, we are better able to manage them.

Practising mindfulness can give people more insight into their emotions, boost their attention and concentration and improve relationships. It’s proven to help with stress, anxiety, depression and addictive behaviours, and can even have a positive effect on physical problems like hypertension, heart disease and chronic pain.

The sessions will be held every Tuesday at Café Mila in central Godalming.
NO COST – sessions are free
Everyone welcome, come along to help you manage stress, anxiety or anger better.

Karate Lessons

12 weeks plan:

  • General knowledge about Karate (history, purpose, methodology)
  • Physical training with use of Karate techniques from Kata (form) called Pina Kata
  • Partner work with Pinan Kata as a form of self-protection
  • Training with equipment (pads, shields mitts)
  • General awareness from self-protection point of via ( traffic signal danger assessment,  danger avoidance, use of the fence and verbal skills, de-escalation)

Overall benefits of Karate training for students, improved cardio-vascular fitness, reduction of stress and improvement of self-esteem.  I hope that through these sessions we will improve their general awareness of possible dangers. Use of hitting equipment like pads and mitts should help with release of stress through controlled aggression. We hope to build self-esteem through controlled failure, and overcoming the obstacle.

Sound Therapy
2:45 pm – 3:45 pm

You will be calmly guided into a blissfully aware meditative state of Yogic Sleep (Yoga Nidra) accompanied by the soothing, restorative and healing tones of Tibetan, Bhutan and Indian Singing Bowls, Gongs, Tenchas, rain maker and an Indian ‘Happy Drum’.

 

(FYI: Nada Yoga is the Yoga of Sound ie using sound (singing and singing bowls etc) to connect the mind, body and spirit, and Yoga Nidra is Yogic Sleep, a guided meditation into a deep meditative state (Theta) with intense body awareness (Alpha) between the awake (Beta) and deep sleep (Delta) states of mind and body).

 

Swami Rama: “Yoga Nidra is a revitalising exercise that gives total rest to the mind, brain, nervous system, senses and body.  Except through meditation and Yoga Nidra, one cannot give rest to the totality of the mind.  There is no drug and no scientific or physical technique so far discovered that gives rest to the unconscious part of the mind, except the technique of Yoga Nidra”

 

Tibetan Singing Bowls entrain the brain to move into the Theta brain wave frequencies that induce deep meditative and peaceful states of being, clearing the restless mind and enhancing the mind / body connection, while in the body the vibrations activate the self healing mechanisms, restoring and optimising the flow of energy through the parts of the body where it is required.
