What you already need to know

This course is suitable for beginners.

We respectfully request that those who have already attended this workshop with ACRES do not attend again to allow more people to benefit from Rachel's teaching and the funding allocated to this course. Subject to demand we will be offering a follow on 5 week course at Uckfield College in June 2024. Please see here for further details.

What you will learn

This workshop will begin with a short introduction. Rachel, your tutor, will explain the techniques that will be covered, and what you will be doing and hope to achieve. You will start with some stretching before moving to lying on the floor. From a lying position, you will be guided by Rachel through a practice, using breathwork and finally visualisation to achieve deep relaxation. Rachel will then guide you gently back to the room and the session will end with questions being taken by the group. You should leave feeling refreshed and revived,
