Mindfulness is paying deliberate attention to things as they are without judgement. Learning to be mindful changes how your brain functions leaving you feeling healthier, happier and calmer.
It has been life changing and completely surprised me at how changing the way I think about my lifestyle has improved my health. My headaches have improved hugely, I am less tired and just generally enjoy life more.”

What a satisfying, but exhausting, start to 2019. The studio in Postwick is complete with all essentials in place, ready for the first Mindfulness Hour Class on January 15th and 8 Week Mindfulness Courses beginning on the 17th. Tomorrow I head to Snowdonia for the Mindfulness Teacher Training Retreat Level 2 run through Bangor University’s Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice. It is no small feat to organise a home for the mum to be away for a week, but it has been done as well as it possibly can be, and I’m thoroughly looking forward to reflecting on mindfulness teaching, catching up on the latest research and soaking up the wisdom from the facilitators and fellow attendees alike.
There are a couple of places left on the Mindful Hour Classes on January 15th at 7:30pm and January 17th at 11:00. The first Mindful Hour Class is free. There are 1-2 places left on the 8 Week Mindfulness Courses at 1:00pm and 7:00pm beginning on January 17th. If you are interested in attending either of these classes or courses, please contact me and I will get back to you when I’m back in the office on January 14th.

We’re nearly ready to go in the new Simply Mindfulness Norwich studio on the River Yare, 2 minutes south of the A47 Postwick Park and Ride. The converted stable is complete and supplies are slowly arriving. Setting up a new studio is hard work but after a two years of running courses in different locations it certainly feels like it is the right time for Simply Mindfulness to settle into its own place.
There is a full calendar of mindfulness events coming up in 2019. The 8 Week Mindfulness Courses teach the foundations of mindfulness to help you develop a mindfulness practise and experience all the health benefits that come with this. The afternoon and evening courses both start on January 17th. Please contact me if you would like to sign up.
The popular Mindful Evenings have been renamed Mindful Hour Classes as there is now a weekly daytime class on Thursdays from 11am-12pm beginning on January 17th and monthly evening sessions beginning on January 15th. Mindful Hour Classes are an opportunity for everyone, including beginners, to come practice mindfulness in a relaxed and friendly group. All dates and times listed on the website. You can book one class or buy a block of classes. It is not a course so come join us for one class or many more, depending on what suits you. Classes are limited to 12 people, so please contact me to book your place.
Have a mindful New Year everyone!
