Immerse yourself in this self-care session focussed on un-winding the mind, bringing a focus to any stress held in the face, neck and shoulders, working to soften and tone the face, and fully relax the body with a mindful body scan.
This hour long session will include the Danielle Collins (world leading face yoga expert) upper and lower face workout, as well as techniques to relax the face and boost circulation, including face massage, lymphatic drainage and acupressure points.
Face yoga has been proven to help with issues such a sinus problems, bruxism, tension headaches and insomnia. It can also reduce tension and stress from the face, strengthen eye function and correct poor posture. Benefits to the face if practised regularly include; boosting of collagen and oxygen to the skin, clearer skin tone, less puffiness, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, firms and tightens the skin.
Mindful meditation can bring an awareness to where we hold stress and tension, and through this practice, we can learn to observe and start to free ourselves from stressful thoughts and associated physical held tension.
This is a zoom session. Please make sure you have clean hands before practicing on the face. If you have any serum or oil, you can apply this to the face beforehand to help your fingers to glide, but don’t worry if you don’t have any, you can still practice face yoga!
Kindfulmind is offering some free taster mindfulness sessions to children ages 7-11: a chance to try out mindfulness, see what it’s about, take part with others and have fun!
The sessions will be 30 minutes long, and each week will be a different theme.
Places are limited so be sure to book in advance. Please complete the form to register your child. Once we have the completed form, we’ll send you the zoom link. Then just pop the date in your diary, and we’ll send you a reminder email before the first session.
The main themes that will be covered in these sessions include:

- Kindness to others
Week 1 Wednesday 8th July 5-5.30pm ‘Attention’
We’ll explore what attention is, why it’s important to train our attention in mindfulness and try out different activities to notice where we can place our attention.
Week 2 Wednesday 15th July 5-5.30pm ‘Senses’
We’ll be curious about how we can notice our senses (smell, sight, touch, taste, hearing), and we’ll discover how this can train our attention to stay focussed in the moment.
Week 3 Wednesday 22nd July 5-5.30pm ‘Gratitude’
By harnessing the power of gratitude, we notice that we can ‘re-wire’ the brain to become more positive when we can start to note what we feel grateful for.
Week 4 Wednesday 29th July 5-5.30pm ‘Kindness’
Practicing kindness towards ourselves and others can promote happiness, so we’ll be exploring how we can develop our practice of kindness and how we feel when we’ve shared kindness with others.
“It’s given me time to chill and relax, it’s made me realise it’s not about clearing your mind of thoughts, but about observing them”
