Here is where we start, a short introduction to what mindfulness is and what you will cover.
Thinking about habits... your habits.
You've heard about Mindfulness - but how does that benefit me?
Helps to sort the fact from the myths and questions.
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.
Here is run through of skills that that will help make sense of 'just sitting'
Not hippy woo-woo stuff but backed up by hard science; Mindfulness has a body of evidence to support its effectiveness.
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.
This section is DOWNLOADABLE in order that your Mindfulness practice is completely portable.

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.
Bonus module containing links to live videos where we discuss Mindfulness and how to use it to get into shape.
Here are our favourite and beautiful poems that sum up mindfulness and the way it can allow you to see the world, we wanted to share these with you.

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.
