Mindfulness Courses & Workshops

I have been teaching Mindfulness since 2010, and over that time there has been a growing interest for more and more people in this new way of being. I believe that many are now beginning to realise that their busy, fast paced, multi-tasking lives are having a negative impact on their wellbeing. If we are trying to do too much at once, our internal chatter can go in to overdrive and our bodies begin to bear the brunt, resulting in feelings of stress, anxiety or anger. We find we spend a lot of time with our head until we are almost completely disconnected from our body.

Mindfulness invites a new, kinder approach that aims to look at the whole self. My Mindfulness courses and workshops offer you the opportunity to begin mindfully noticing your own way of living. You will be able to practice tuning in to your daily routines in a different way and understand your stress, or other overwhelming feelings, in a way that may offer you more choice in how you respond to situations in the future.

Every session also introduces a mindful meditation exercise which is one of the ways in which you can practice mindfulness.

Please contact me tanya@tanyawright.com for latest dates or for details of one to one programmes.
