The Art of Slowing Down with Paula Flood – March 2024

This workshop is Onsite

Workshop Description:

Whatever your health concerns may be, slowing down and de-stressing can help to bring your body and mind to an optimal place for healing. 

This workshop will include slow mindful movement, body scanning, mindfulness meditation and walking meditation.

The yogis of yore knew that slow movement as well as the attention-training techniques of meditation have profoundly positive effects on the mind and body, including:
– Better sleep
– Improved digestion
– Increased energy
– Improved mood and emotional regulation
– Decrease in negative thought patterns associated with anxiety and depression
– Increased calmness through the activation of the ‘Rest and Digest’ response
– Improved relationships through activation of the ‘Tend and Befriend’ branch of the nervous
– Better focus, concentration and memory

During this session, you will develop the skill of interoception, noticing subtle sensations in the body, which is associated with enhanced wellbeing. An outdoor walking meditation practice will be included, weather permitting. You will also learn easy lifestyle tweaks and self-care tips to reset your nervous system when you feel upset or overwhelmed. 

With over 20 years experience teaching yoga and training yoga teachers, Paula will guide you with her special blend of knowledge, expert cues and gentle compassion.

If you want to calm your nervous system, optimize brain function and improve physical healing, don’t miss this unique workshop.
