Do you want to know how fermented foods can help to improve your health and well being?

Do you want inspiration and practical tips on how to get started making your own fermented products at home?

Join me for my fermentation workshop on the 28th October 2018!

We will be talking about the history and science of fermentation and we’ll take a look at how fermented foods can help to improve your health and well being in many different ways.

At the end I will demonstrate two easy recipes to get you started.

I will also provide you with basic recipes, and resources where you can find out more!

After doing the workshop, you can join my fermentation group on Facebook to connect with others, share recipes and tips, and ask questions!

So what is Mindfulness and Movement?

Mindfulness is becoming more popular because it works, it’s a form of meditation and it is simply paying attention, on purpose to the present moment in an open and accepting way. You can develop mindfulness through meditation but mindfulness meditation doesn’t have to be sitting still which many people find challenging. Mindfulness and movement allows you to develop the skills and practice of mindfulness by using the body as a meditation tool, with your attention fully on the chosen movements. Classes will be small to allow for individual development and support.

How does this help me?

The course tutor, Fiona Chapman, explains - Mindfulness meditation is scientifically proven to help to reduce stress, anxiety, fatigue, low mood, sleep problems, high blood pressure whilst also improving our ability to relax, manage stress, increase self-awareness and self-esteem to name just a few of the benefits. The course not only helps you begin a daily mindfulness practice but also shows you ways you can train your mind to support you in everyday life. All movements are practised according to the individual’s ability and are based on Hatha Yoga movements. No previous experience or level of fitness is needed only a willingness to join in the relaxed and informal sessions.

A bit about your Tutor – Fiona Chapman

I have worked at Hambledon Health as a Clinical Hypnotherapist, CBT and Life Coach for several years now and have successfully blended mindfulness techniques into my sessions for many years now. I began studying meditation many years ago and realised the enormous benefits to my own wellbeing and physical health. Earlier this year I travelled to India and studied meditation and yoga with the great masters, an amazing experience. However, it is important to understand mindfulness does not require you to have any particular beliefs nor will any be explored in the sessions, the focus is meditation and movement.
