To Secure your spot you must click ''GOING'' on the Facebook event page or you will not secure a spot. We will then confirm your spot by message. We only have 12 spaces available on each session.
Mindfulness is the capacity of being aware, fully present in the here and now which is the foundation of happiness. The present moment is the only moment truly available to us.
Mindfulness can help reduce stress, anxiety, depression,
pain, sleep problems, overthinking and much more
Come and enhance all things good about our whole
being such as awareness, understanding, compassion,
openness, cognitive function and general wellbeing.
Jon Kabat-Zinn (1990) described seven attitudinal qualities that underpin Mindfulness practice, which are both the stance we bring to the practice and a consequence of it. He later added two more. These qualities are brought to the heart of the interaction between teacher and participant in a mindfulness session. The qualities are listed below:
Non-judging
Patience
Beginner’s mind
Trust
Non-striving
Acceptance
Letting go
Generosity
Gratitude
Lessons will be themed and have a mix of meditation, group talks, and mindful movement.
Bring with you -
Mat
Small pillow
Note book
Water
Socks - Must be worn at all times
face mask - must be worn at all times (except if you are exempt or during practice)


In the event of no shows that have confirmed and not cancelled for future sessions you will be asked to pay upfront
(except in emergency circumstances)

I hope with the current situation this is understandable as no shows without prior warning will stop other people from being able to book and enjoy sessions.

Please try to arrive 10-15 minutes early for covid induction.
Venue rules will be explained on arrival.


Please note that practice is not suitable for people actively experiencing psychosis, or suicidal thoughts. If you suffer from any high-risk mental health conditions, please check with your doctor or specialist before signing up.

Join Alex Vinall, Managing Director of Air Social Digital Marketing Agency, as she guides you through the process of setting up your Google Business Pages in a way that maximises your potential and furthers your digital reach.

What is Google My Business? It's a free, easy-to-use tool for businesses that you should be taking full advantage of! Think of it as a control panel for your company's presence on all of Google's products. Google has a 90% share of the global search engine market and so to ignore the opportunities on offer is an amateur mistake. Through Google My Business, you can help customers find your business in Google Search, position it on Google Maps, provide up-to-date information including opening times, and ultimately, tell customers your story.

Attendees should make sure they have access to their Google My Business before the event so that they can take full advantage of what they learn, live!

Most small businesses are approached regularly by companies offering to help you appear higher in Google’s search results. Often they present SEO as a highly complex, technical process that requires a great deal of specialist knowledge, but in fact there are simple steps you can take to significantly improve the search ranking of your site yourself. Even if you decide not to do the work yourself, it’s useful to have an understanding of how SEO works when you’re dealing with SEO companies.

Sign up for this webinar and in just one hour we’ll give you an overview of how Google determines the rankings for sites and how you can use that understanding to improve the search performance of your own site.

Tags are snippets of code that you add to your website in order to collect information and send it to third parties.Common examples include the Google Analytics tracking tag, the Facebook Pixel, the LinkedIn insight tag and Twitter conversion tracking tags but there are many, many others.

Google Tag Manager is a simple web-based interface that simplifies the process of working with tags on your website. Rather than going into the source code or plugins for your site every time you want to add a new tag, Google Tag Manager enables you to do everything you need in one place.

Google Tag Manager also enables you to go beyond the tracking functionality in Google Analytics to collect much more data and monitor more precisely how people interact with your website. Perhaps you’d like to know how far people scroll down the pages of your site, or how many are submitting your contact form, or watching a video on your site? Google Tag Manager can help you with all of this and more.
