Why Attend Wellness Workshops?
Many things in life impact our health & wellbeing, either in a helpful way or an unhelpful way and with awareness and understanding we can discern what things are most helpful for us. It is important that we combine our cognitive understanding with what our body is telling us, all too often we have a cognitive knowing and are not listening to the wisdom of the body.
Ann, who runs Unity Physiotherapy & Wellbeing, offers a variety of wellness workshops to help you compassionately connect to yourself & your body’s wisdom, regulate your nervous system, and explore what nurtures your wellness & helps you to thrive. The workshops offered can have many benefits including increased self-awareness, increased self-compassion, increased self-trust, improved nervous system regulation and a deeper connection to your inner wisdom. Ann has developed the workshops she offers from many years of clinical experience as a specialist physiotherapist & integrative somatic practitioner, combined with self-practice/study. Like all of Ann’s work the workshops are offered in a trauma-informed way.

Ann runs some one off workshops & a series that runs a few times a year (Creating A Healing Path), the following workshops are currently planned for 2024:
The embodied rest workshops will focus on what rest feels like in the body & nurturing rest. At the start of the workshop we will consider a few things including what rest is and the qualities of rest. Then we will explore rest through gentle yoga and a mini yoga nidra (a form of meditation that offers deep rest & restoration). The workshop will close with a summary and sharing of reflections (if anyone wishes to share). The yoga practice in these workshops includes: restful and restorative yoga asanas/movements; a focus on embodying rest (what it feels like in the body); and meditation/mini yoga nidra to end the practice. This workshop is usually £25 and is being offered on a donation basis, if a donation isn’t possible it can be offered to you for free. Part two of the workshop has different information on rest, different reflection prompts and yoga practice, the yoga nidra is the same as in part one, you don’t have to have attended part one to do part two. If you would like to attend please email Ann at email@example.com, in your email please advise if you would like to make a donation or need to attend for free and if you have any health condition that may impact your ability to engage in gentle movement and/or the meditation part of the workshop.
All of the workshops can be offered online worldwide, please get in touch with Ann at firstname.lastname@example.org to book a place on any of these or to be added to the interested list if they haven’t yet got a date to run.
