This session is designed to be a low-key relaxing session for all and any clients who are interested in joining. The aim is for us all to experience and learn some techniques which help us relax and feel good at home.
We generally start with a brief chat and a song, followed by some gentle but energising warm ups. We then slow down and spend a longer period of time with our microphones muted, listening to relaxing music and doing some breathing exercises together, and then enjoy a guided Peace Out meditation. This is an opportunity for all clients to listen to peaceful and relaxing sounds and experience some stillness and calm.
We advise preparing for this session simply by having to hand any pillows or blankets you may wish to use during the relaxing second half of the session, as people may wish to lay down for this. However, everyone is free to enjoy this session in whatever way works for them!
The session is intended to offer something for everyone, whether they prefer simply listening to familiar voices and relaxing music, or doing gentle movements alongside this which can help our bodies feel good.
