Stress: it can be challenging to find the tools and the time to manage, but it may be easier than we realize. It has been shown that regular meditation practice not only reduces stress and anxiety, but boosts your immune system, increases emotional intelligence, and improves learning capacity.

Join meditation expert Tara Good in this bi-weekly series to experience the benefits of meditation for yourself.

Classes will be 25 minutes each and are suitable to both new and experienced meditators. Tara will be available at the end of each session for discussion, questions, and to offer you any guidance and support that you may need in developing your own practice. These classes run from 3-4pm.

With limited opportunity in the workday for movement, you may be putting your body at risk of more than just bad posture. Linked to a 174% increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease, sitting for 8 hours a day has also been linked to high blood pressure, susceptibility to anxiety and depression, and a decrease in skeletal muscle mass.

Taking regular breaks throughout the day for gentle movement and light stretching can significantly reduce these risks.

Join Mindful Movement coach Tara Good for a bi-weekly yoga session. In this 25 minute class, we will explore light stretching and mobility exercises specifically designed to be a mid-work break, focused on countering the effects of sitting at a desk all day. Classes are from 3-4pm.
