How to Cultivate a Meditation Practice - £30
Meditation is well researched and documented to reduce stress, release worry & anxiety and promote better sleep. To sit in Meditation is to make time for self, be in stillness and reconnect to the peace that is inherent within. This releases the outer states of worry and tension and prevents the build-up of stress and dis-ease. In this relaxed state, a great sense of wellbeing, serenity and contentment can be experienced which when developed over time, is a state that pervades and underlies all emotional states.
In this two hour experiential workshop with Flo Lam-Clark, firm foundations will be established for developing an independent meditation practice, to incorporate into daily living.
The meditations taught are nonsecular so this is suitable for all, regardless of experience, faith or belief. This will appeal to those looking for tools and ways to manage a pressured and fast-pace of life. Cultivating a meditation practice will enable access to an enriched, meaningful life with steadiness, peace and calm.
What you will learn and take away with you:-
- The benefits of Meditation
- Mindfulness tips and tools to integrate in everyday life
- Simple and effective breathing to counter stress and feel relaxed
- A complete meditation practice
- Notes from the workshop to encourage self-practice of the techniques

Somatics Workshop: better movement for head, neck and shoulders - £30
Do you suffer from a “tech neck” sore neck, tight shoulders and aches from too many hours on a ipad, pc or phone?
Come and work it all out in a 2 hour Somatics workshop. Somatics movements involve gentle movement that free up chronic pains and tightness by rebooting the brain to muscle communication. When you put your muscles under habitual stresses, you don’t fully release the muscles which means that you use up energy even when resting. By practicing somatic movements you retrain your muscles to relearn their natural resting length. Giving you ease of movement in those areas. All welcome.

Glow Yoga Bliss: A Spring Restorative Workshop - £30
Let go of Winter and embrace Spring with a Sunday morning restorative workshop.
Hit the pause button on your busy life, restorative yoga helps you to recalibrate your mind and body back to your natural rhythm. The slower pace and focus breathing triggers the rest, digest and repair responses from the very first pose. This activation of the parasympathetic nervous system helps to dampen down the effects of the regular fight-or-flight stress response that can, over time, be damaging to your well-being. The calming effect on the nervous system sets a deeply relaxing tone for the class that comforts your mind and body down to the cellular level. We start with gentle mobilisations of the joints and muscles that get stuck in stress patterns and then we will release it all into held poses fully supported by props. We end with a 20 minute yoga nidra, a guided meditation, you will leave feeling rejuvenated and ready for the Spring.
As well as running Good Vibes, Nahid de Belgeonne has been teaching for 12 years. She teaches mindful yoga, restorative yoga, meditation, yoga nidra and is a Somatic movement coach.

She believes a good teacher is one who never stops learning and evolving.
