Some interesting recent stories from the world of yoga and mindfulness…
Practical Tip: Shifting out of ‘doing’ mode and into ‘being’ mode
We all have a tendency to get stuck in autopilot, perpetually ‘doing’ – behaviourally, cognitively and emotionally, with very little time spent ‘being’ -just experiencing what is. This article from Mindful Magazine offers a 7 minute mindfulness practice to help make the shift from ‘doing’ mode to ‘being’ mode.
If you are interested in a free taster session of either children’s yoga or adult mindfulness, for your community group or business, then please get in touch as I have some availability.
