There are many different holistic therapies that can be accessed at Positive Life which provide a way for clients to unwind and enjoy a relaxing experience. The holistic therapies that are offered are:
Yoga is a practice which permeates all of life. Yoga is about being the best person you can be. Yoga teaches us how to be present in the moment, stay connected to our breath and be accepting of where we are. The physical practice helps us to become flexible and strong. The breathwork aids our respiratory system which in turns feeds our heart. The meditation eases our minds, relieving us from the stresses of living in the modern world. Everything experienced on the mat eventually travels off the mat into our every day lives, helping us live with acceptance and love.
No previous yoga experience is needed and beginners are most welcome. Equipment will be provided for you and no specialised clothing is required. Come along and spend a lunchtime relaxing and exercising
It is not about producing beautiful works of art. No skill or talent is required; nothing can be wrong or inadequate in Art Therapy. Scribbles, marks and doodles are all fine! You are free to use the materials in any way that you wish. Working in a relaxed environment that encourages you to experiment and play with art materials can assist in healing self-confidence, self-esteem and also help in relieving painful or unacknowledged feelings.
Art Therapy can be offered individually or in a group. An individual session can last up to one hour. Group work shares aspects of individual treatment but has the additional benefit of sharing work and talking to others confidentially. Much can be given and received by members of a group in an atmosphere of mutual understanding and trust. A group session normally lasts 1-2 hours.
