Mindfulness sessions for children and parents -ages 11+

New Forest Mindfulness offers sessions for adults and children in partnership with The Retreat New Forest. These experiential classes provide an introduction to the practice of mindfulness for those newer to the subject, as well as a deepening of understanding and practice for those already experienced. 

In these classes we will spend time outdoors in nature together in the beautiful gardens and woodland of The Retreat New Forest, recharging our batteries and reconnecting with the world around us and each other. Through practicing mindfulness together we will explore what it is to be human and how to cultivate qualities such as patience, compassion, non-judging and letting be / letting go.

Classes include a mix of lying down and sitting meditations combined with gentle movement-based meditations and can be tailored to all physical needs.
