Self care workshop

Reviews:


 

“I loved the self care workshop today, Vaishali has such a calm way about her and it made me feel very quickly at ease. The session was very well structured, incorporating a diverse mix of movement, discussion and writing, which explained self care in different ways. I felt supported and heard within the group and Vaishali made sure we were all comfortable throughout. A wonderful experience - thank you so much!” - (A- musician, London.)

 

"I had never heard of yoga nidra before, what an experience! Vaishali was attentive and made sure we were all comfortable. I would definitely love to practise more yoga going forward" (yoga nidra participant)

"thank you so much for the self care time. SO needed this!!" (self care workshop participant)


"How wonderful to dance care free in the self care workshop! I was quite nervous at first but then I felt I was challenging myself and it was so great. I want to come to more of these workshops, when is the next one?! Thank you!!" (self care workshop participant)

 

"The 8 week self care programme changed my life. I am a completely different person from when I first started the course. Thank you so much for supporting us, thank you for all the creativity and arts, thank you for listening to us and creating a space where we always felt safe. I have made friends in the course and I am taking away with me resources that I will always use. I especially loved the inner child work. Thank you so much! " (participant)

"Absolutely loved creating the affirmation magnets!!"

"The training was so valuable to us as school staff and professionals. I feel much more confident in knowing where to get support and advice and where to refer students on" (forced marriage training).
