Thinking about habits... your habits.

A 'Me' Spring Clean

You've heard about Mindfulness - but how does that benefit me?

Why Mindfulness

Helps to sort the fact from the myths and questions.

What it is and what it isn't

When we actively sit and try to notice, it isn't as straightforward as it might at fist seem.  The kinds of traffic in your brain might not be what you expect.

What happens when we TRY to notice

Here is run through of skills that that will help make sense of 'just sitting'

Skills Needed

Not hippy woo-woo stuff but backed up by hard science; Mindfulness has a body of evidence to support its effectiveness.

Does it work?

The 7 Attitudes to try to develop that will make ALL the difference when you try to establish a successful Mindfulness practice.  (And 3 more for good measure)

Here is a last few pointers before you dive in to your Mindfulness practice - and a chance to try a Top to Toe Scan with Tanya.  The next section has all the downloads you need to establish your regular practice.

Lets give It A Try Together

Shell Meditation, here you get to be mindful of an object, rather than the seated practices.

Mindful Practice Audios
1 Lecture 03:03

This section is DOWNLOADABLE in order that your Mindfulness practice is completely portable.

Take time now to download all of these recordings to your computer or your mobile devices (so you can use the recordings wherever you are).

This is the most important part of the course now that you understand the fundamental principles of Mindfulness.  Mindfulness, as we've said is in the 'doing'.  Even if you wonder 'am I doing it right', 'is it working' - understand that if you are setting aside time every day - you ARE doing it right - and the benefits increase the more you do it.

Good luck.

Guest Instructors 

In Work It Like A Diva - Body Confidence, we introduce to you, the gorgeous Zoe McNulty

Zoe McNulty is a leading dance fitness presenter, group exercise expert and a Body Positivity activist. 
She specialises in helping women feel good about their figures through fun and feisty dance concepts. 

Zoe had always dreamed of being a backing dancer on Top Of The Pops but due to her being larger than a dancer "should be" and because she didn't want to be told she needed to lose weight, she avoided the commercial dance scene and the negative body image that she would undoubtedly have developed if she had decided to go down that road. However with the pressures of society she still struggled with her body through much of her adult life until she realised how much time she had wasted worrying about what others thought of her.

Zoe refers to herself as a champion of curves, and is honoured to be a "Body Image Movement Global Ambassador (BIMGA)"
She would love to see some changes to the Fitness Industry as she is saddened by the message which is being pushed that weight loss = health. The physical, mental, spiritual and emotional damage being done by this elitist approach simply cannot go on.
Zoe now feels more at home in the Health At Every Size (HAES) community and is on  a mission to put things back into perspective and regain some sanity and compassion within the Fitness Industry.

Her approachability, creativity, dynamic style and her fun personality, combined with a desire to help others has made her a firm favourite with class participants far and wide.
