- Calming an intense emotion
- Unblocking a stuck energy
- Building self-confidence and self-esteem
- Fostering creativity
Fertility Yoga in the Workplace
Join Jane Dominey from FemFlow Yoga in this session using a unique approach to boosting your fertility from behind your desk. If you spend hours in the office with little to no movement, and not enough space to rollout a mat, then this unique practice is for you. This practice is designed for women in the office, however, for those of you who don’t work at a desk, there will be poses thrown in for you too.
Fertility & Nutrition
Join nutritionist Sarah Trimble in this session focused on nutrition, which is important for any woman trying to conceive. This education session will look at the importance of key nutrients, necessary for optimal reproductive health, including vitamin D. Sarah will discuss optimal dietary patterns for fertility and fertility boosting super foods, as well as how to eat better breakfasts and more nutritious lunches during the working week. We’ll look at the importance of better sleep and how a lunchtime walk could improve your sleep pattern.
Join Natalie Wagstaffe, a practising Buddhist who has run a successful mindfulness practice for a decade. In this session, you will learn practical, time-efficient practices and tools which you can start using immediately to reduce stress levels and feel more at peace in your mind and body.
Balance and Breathwork
Join Anna-Marie Gough who started her therapeutic method with one goal in mind: to help people find calm, happiness and balance in their work, relationships, and life. This session will focus on using breathwork to achieve positive wellbeing. The way that we breathe affects every part of our mental and physical health and can enhance health, wellbeing and inner peace.
