Relaxation, Mindfulness and Meditation

Ancient skills supporting Insight and Personal Development

Whilst the world around us has changed and adapted at a phenomenal pace, the human body, mind and nervous system still react to challenges and stress in predicatable ways. We can work with this. Targeting physical, emotional and mental tension, our techniques are rooted in the ancient traditions of Yoga and supported through modern Research. Allowing you to relax, slow down and bring your attention inwards for greater self-understanding, compassion and insight. Our online training is designed to be effective, easy to follow and interactive. Got a question? Get in touch with us at www.work-happy.live or e-mail work-happy@outlook.com.
