Be introduced to mindfulness, meditation and relaxation in an uplifting and practical way. Take some “me time” to join me to learn how to reduce stress and anxiety and improve your health and wellbeing by using practical, easy to use tips, tools and techniques. I combine teaching and coaching into my retreat days and course.

LETS DO THIS

My 4-week Introduction to
Mindfulness & Meditation

“We have a choice over how we perceive and react to the events in our lives”

One of the most important lessons we can learn in life is this: we do not see the world how it is. We see the world how we choose to perceive it. Every situation is neutral until we put meaning to it, either positive or negative. This means we actually have a choice over how we perceive and react to the events in our lives. Through meditation and mindfulness, we can examine these perceptions and reactions without judgement, and objectively decide if we would like to think something different.

“Make better, conscious choices that can transform your feelings and your mood”

Delivered through four, 2hr 15 minute evening sessions, each Mindfulness, Meditation & Relaxation workshop is for up to 8 people, and involves a mixture of theory and practical exercises.

Over the four weeks of the workshop, you will get the chance to explore a variety of different mindfulness practices and meditations. The techniques you will learn can empower you to make better, conscious choices that can transform your feelings and your mood.

A welcoming space

Mindfulness Workshop

Each session is held in a calm, friendly and welcoming space. Importantly, what you choose to share about yourself in the sessions is up to you; it can be as much or as little as you like. Whatever your choice, sessions are always confidential. At the beginning of each course, everyone pledges to keep the content of our sessions private.

Workshop sessions at St John’s Church, Locks Heath. All sessions are held in a calm and welcoming space.

Costs and what to bring

“The room the course is held in was warm, welcoming and comforting. Sarah had gone to every effort to make you feel safe!

The group itself was small and personal. I will confess I am normally better on a 1:1 basis, but Sarah and everyone else taking part on the course were so lovely, caring and supportive. All having our own battles, demons, etc. Some shared some didn’t. There was never any pressure and more importantly, nobody judged!”

“Fantastic, wonderful course. You were brilliant, your passion comes through and comes through to your clients. I will definitely be using it on myself and will be referring my clients to you for their aftercare, etc. Thank you!”

“I had lots of inward anger I wanted to get rid of. Sarah gave me lots of techniques and meditation ideas to work on and I feel a lot more happy and positive about life and how to look for more positives in a day”

“We were all there to get the same out of the course!   Help, guidance, relaxation, coping mechanisms, control, etc

Sarah has a such a lovely way with people and is just so easy to talk to. It is quite clear that she is truly passionate about her work. If ever there was a follow up course or even a straight forward meditation class, I’ll be signing up for it!

Thank you for helping me see light at the end of the tunnel, Sarah.”

My Stop, Breathe and Check In Retreat Day

 How does a retreat day of relaxing, resting, rebooting and recharging sound?
This day is for you to STOP, have some time to BREATHE and CHECK IN without interruption, judgement or time pressures. 

 

Set in the outskirts of the New Forest in a log cabin surrounded by peace and tranquillity, join me and 8 other like minded people for a day of nurturing and reflection.

 

I combine my coaching skills and passion for mindfulness and meditation to bring this day to life You will experience mindfulness and meditation practices, relaxation and self care, learn tools and techniques to help alleviate everyday stress, learn and share tips with each other, enjoy the outside space, use your body mindfully in gentle exercise, taste delicious homemade snacks, and much more….

 

There is a maximum of 8 people per day, and the cost of the day is £65.  We start at 10am (arrival from 9.30am for tea and coffee) and finish at 4.30pm.  This includes all tea, coffee and homemade snacks.  Please bring your own lunch.

 

I invite all guests to bring a cushion, yoga mat, blanket, water bottle, journal and pen and anything else they might like to ensure there day is comfortable for them. (we do have some blankets and yoga mats available to use).

Inspiring and passionate teacher

If you want to develop your knowledge of mindfulness, meditation and relaxation presented by an inspiring and passionate teacher in a practical and uplifting way, in a beautiful countryside location, I would definitely recommend taking some ‘me time’ to join Sarah on one of her relaxing retreat days where you are sure to pick up hints and tips on how to reduce stress and improve your health and wellbeing by practising easy to use mindfulness techniques that can be easily incorporated in to your everyday routine. By combining teaching with coaching, Sarah’s intuitive approach is motivational in a warm and restorative way. A real treat for those who are new to mindfulness and meditation and a refresher for those already practicing.

 

People warm to Sarah

You covered such a variety of things with us Sarah, things that made our minds work and THINK (values, wheel of life balance, relaxing meditations, yoga/pilates at the end which was fab, and yes, we were lucky enough to do a bit of work outside which was awesome). You’d thought of everything. People in the group were sharing, thus forming friendships and bonds, perhaps some people were a little bit out of their comfort zone (i.e. me, speaking in a group), but in such a lovely environment and with lovely like-minded people I felt safe, and happy to push myself. 

Somehow you manage to capture people into your passionate world of mindfulness and meditation. Don’t change the way you do things. People warm to you. The way you conduct yourself, you are YOU, not putting on a show, passionate about what you do, caring, funny and wanting to share your knowledge, and help change people’s lives…..

A wonderful day yesterday

Many thanks for a wonderful day yesterday. You are so inspiring it is lovely to see and be part of a group you are teaching, feel blessed. You are a natural teacher.
Love and best wishes
