Meditation and Mindfulness Classes
Helen works together with Lisa McAuliffe, an experienced Yoga and Pilates teacher to run weekly Meditation and Mindfulness classes at the Vera Fletcher Hall and the Guide Hut in Thames Ditton.
For centuries meditation has been used to develop awareness and calm in a busy and stressful world. Studies consistently show that regular meditation benefits our physical and mental well being.
Guided meditation classes will explore relaxation, mindfulness, focus and balance, giving you the time and space to unwind stress and tension and feel grounded, peaceful and energised. Classes are not associated with any religion. The sessions are suitable for beginners and those who have done some meditation before.
