Restorative workshops at Wellbeing Lab

Restorative workshops at Wellbeing Lab

10th March, 2017

Restoration Yard’s dedicated recuperative space, Wellbeing Lab, is set to host two wellbeing workshops designed to nurture the mind, body and spirit this March.

The first workshop takes place on Sunday 12 March and focuses on mind calm meditation. The discipline teaches effective and gentle approach to managing stress and anxiety and helping to calm busy minds.

Fully accredited Mind Calm Coach, Lesley Bell, will take the six-hour session and demonstrate practical techniques to worry less and sleep better as well as helping to improve relationships and live in the moment.

The second workshop, which takes place on Sunday 19 March, titled ‘Getting Started with Mindfulness’ will help participants incorporate mindfulness techniques into their everyday lives.

The session, led by two Mindfulness Association trained meditation teachers, explains how to tune into your body and senses, be kinder to yourself and carry out everyday tasks mindfully.

Jen Wood, Programme Director of the Wellbeing Lab, said: “Our workshops are the perfect introduction to mindfulness and how to manage stress and anxiety. In a very fast-past world, they provide the opportunity to slow down and relax.

“I’d urge anyone interested in coming along to either session to book a place with our fantastic teachers.”

Attendees can treat themselves to something from Restoration Café’s delicious lunch menu, or combine a take away with a tranquil stroll around Dalkeith Country Park.

Wellbeing Lab is located within retail and leisure destination Restoration Yard, which can be found in the heart of Dalkeith Country Park. It offers a programme of activities including restorative and kundalini yoga, cognitive behavioural therapy, pilates and more.

Following on from the workshops, an in-depth eight week Mindfulness Based Living course will commence at Wellbeing Lab on Monday 24 April.

The two-hour sessions take place each Monday between 6.30pm and 8.30pm and will culminate in a full day class on 11 June during which participants will practice the techniques they’ve learned during the course.
