The benefits of mindfulness have been widely documented over the last decades and this Mindful Eurythmy workshop on Saturday 14th September 2019 offers an introduction to Eurythmy as mindful movement. There is an increasing focus on the importance of the body and how we move in the fields of wellbeing, mental health and stress management. Studies show that our posture as well as how we move affects our feelings and state of mind (as well as the other way round) and bringing awareness to your body can actively help manage your emotional reactions as you will be more present both in yourself and in the now. You can read more about how Eurythmy helps strengthen resilience here.
This Mindful Eurythmy Workshop offers a chance to learn some simple, yet effective, movement exercises that can help become more present and bring the body and mind to a relaxed and calm state. They deepen with practice and can be practised anywhere you have a little space to move. The benefits of these exercises grow over time and they offer a way of centring yourself and finding inner balance as well as being calming. During the workshop there will be time to practice the exercises for yourself and to choose a sequence of exercises you can practice at home. There will also be a tea/coffee break in the middle with time to connect with other participants or take notes.
Lovely calm workshop. Good useful practical exercises. Good for mindfulness too.
