Wild Minds believe that being in nature for any activity can massively improve the health benefits you will experience.
As a result of this belief, we have developed a series of wellbeing activities that can be enjoyed outdoors to benefit your physical and mental health. These sessions run during the week and at weekend. Take a look at our What’s On page to see what we have coming up.
Join us for a guided meditation session in a beautiful woodland setting. Take time to unwind, connect with nature and explore a new way to reduce anxiety and stress. This outdoor guided meditation session is suitable for anyone wanting to try something new to support positive wellbeing in a relaxed environment.
We run sessions at different times of the day to celebrate both sunrise and sunset to suit everyone’s needs whether it is to feel energised throughout the day or to relax at the end of a hard day.
T’ai Chi for Wellbeing
T’ai Chi is a non-competitive martial art known for its self-defence techniques and significant health benefits. As a form of exercise, it combines gentle physical exercise and stretching with mindfulness. Our sessions allow you to spend time following the gentle movements of T’ai Chi & Qigong, and find calm in this moving meditation. You do not need anything for these sessions, just clothes that allow movement and the willingness to give something new a try.
Yoga for Wellbeing
Yoga for Wellbeing sessions are for everyone. They are a beginner level session that allow people of all abilities to come together and enjoy the practice of Yoga in a relaxing, in formal and communal way. Participants can use any props they need to be enable them to get what they want to out of the sessions and each week there will be new skills and Asana to develop. Sessions will incorporate breath work, physical practice and an element of meditation. Styles of Yoga will include Hatha, Ashtanga, Yin, Restorative and Yoga Nidra.
Our outdoor, in nature meditation, T’ai Chi & Yoga sessions provide people with the mental health benefits of meditation alongside the additional mental and physical health benefits of being in nature. The sessions run for an hour and take attendees through several different types of practice including visualisation, walking meditations and Buddhist meditation to Pranayama and Qigong breathing.
