This workshop, taking place in the conference room, will discuss the impacts and how to notice signs of stress, followed by techniques to help manage stress and improve sleep.
Tai Chi is a form of meditation with movement. It involves gentle movements as well as focus on breathing. For the majority of people attending, this will be the first time trying Tai Chi. The instructor will guide you through some simple movements which can be done in either a standing or seated position.
Leading busy lifestyles, it can be hard for people to prioritise time to truly relax. This session will involve one of the practitioners leading you through a guided relaxation. It is not uncommon for people to nod off to sleep during these sessions!
