Wednesday Oct 6, 2021 - Nov 10, 2021

Feeling frazzled and in need of more balance and headspace in your life? Heard of mindfulness but not quite sure of what it is and how it can help you? Join Roz for this 6-week ‘Introduction to Mindfulness’ course to explore how mindfulness can impact your day-to-day life, improving your mental, physical and emotional health whilst reducing stress and anxiety.
Mindfulness is an ancient practice originating in the East but increasingly making its way into the western world as we struggle to keep up with the busy pace of life, balancing work, family, money, technology and however many other challenges.

Mindfulness is the ability to be fully present, aware of where we are, what we’re doing, and paying attention to each moment with openness and curiosity. In this way, our focus is on acceptance of now, without distractions of the past or future. Through mindful awareness, space opens-up revealing more choices as to how to move towards a greater sense of well-being and fulfilment in your life.

This six-week course will introduce some basic mindfulness practices to guide and encourage you to live more mindfully. The techniques taught are easy to follow and practical including a focus on the breath; the senses; techniques to let go of negative thought patterns and guidance on how to create space for growth.

Who is the course for?
The course is for anyone and everyone wanting to gain more balance, presence and happiness in their life. It is most suitable for those new to mindfulness practices or those wishing to re-familiarise themselves with some key mindfulness techniques. This course will take place in a small, supportive group guided by Roz who has over 10 years experience of mindfulness practices as well as being a schoolteacher and a yoga teacher. We will end each class with a 15 minute tea, snacks and opportunity to share and discuss with each other, should you wish to do so.
Start your yoga journey here.

The most important thing about our practice is the breath. We will start by learning to connect with the breath and how this affects our body and mind.

We will work with the different poses and the anatomy of each one. Breaking them down and modify to see how they will fit your body, making this your own practice.

We will learn how to flow with the breath and connect body and mind. We will also look at the 8 limbs of yoga and the 7 chakra energy centres. Giving you the foundations on which to build your yoga journey.

Thursday 10th March 11.15 - 12.30pm
Saturday morning 23rd April at 10.30 - 11.45am

Over the course you will learn a massage sequence for the legs, tummy, chest, arms, face and back, a special colic routine and to confidently perform specific reflexology techniques to your baby’s feet.  


You will also learn what oils to use & how to create a suitable environment, follow your baby’s cues, and how to adapt the massage as your baby grows.


Classes are run over 4 weekly 1 hour sessions, each with a different theme that is key for baby’s development.   There is also time for discussion, and sharing each others experiences on topics such as sleeping and crying, and to enjoy a tea and some delicious homemade cake.

I know first-hand the benefits of baby reflexology and massage with two little ones myself, who regularly ask for it now as part of their bedtime routine. Soothing music and a blend of beautiful baby friendly essential oils have been specifically chosen for each class to enhance the therapeutic benefits.


Wild Nest provides a wonderful nurturing space for you both and an opportunity to enjoy this special time together.

All you need to bring is a small towel, a baby blanket and of course your baby!
