Mindfulness Based Healthy Living
8 Week Mindfulness Based Healthy Living Course Online
Do you want to change your lifestyle to a healthier way of living?
This new online 8 week course is being piloted this October. Its aim is to create the causes and conditions in your life for our health to flourish through positive changes in habits of eating and movement. Our aim is to support each other with kindness and care to move to a more healthy lifestyle through insights from practices taken from the Mindfulness Association’s mindfulness, compassion & insight trainings. This is combined with an exploration of evidence-based information about beneficial nutrition and exercise approaches. We will share lots of free and evidence-based resources and you can then choose your own combinations of approaches to explore throughout the course.
There is an introductory course fee of £100, on the basis that we will ask you to fill out an anonymous pre and post course questionnaire, and 6 month follow up questionnaire on body weight, shape and fitness changes. Places are limited to 23 participants.
The course will take place on Wednesday evenings 7-8.45pm, starting on Wednesday 6th October (there will be no session on Wednesday 24 November, with our final session on Wednesday 1st December).
The course will be led by Heather Regan-Addis experienced mindfulness tutor and evidence-based lifestyle follower and Ki (Michaela) James experienced dietitian with 30 years experience of clinical work in the NHS.
