BEFORE THE SESSION

  • Take your time to TRANSITION from your previous activities to the scheduled meeting/practice.
  • Come in 10 or 15 minutes before the scheduled time to find your space in the studio and familiarize with the facilities.
  • Let your friends, family and colleagues know that you are not available during the 3 hours.
  • Put your phone away so that you may resist distraction / temptation of checking the phones during the session.
  • It would be much appreciated if you could KINDLY BE PUNCTUAL so that the programme can start on time. The mindfulness session won’t get interrupted by people joining in, and you yourself will have ample time to gently slow down and relax into the practice. Those coming in late can enjoy their breathing while gently and quietly joining in the group.

DURING THE SESSION

  • We are doing movements so set aside enough space around you to keep safe distancing.
  • Notice the group around you, their body language and expressions. Respond with a smile or a nod as a sign of acknowledgement. Respect and honour each other’s unique processes.
  • Take all the time you need to transition from one exercise to another. Listen to your body and mind.
  • Feel free to refresh yourself when needed. If there’s a need to step outside, make a gesture to the facilitator and leave the room quietly.
  • For sharing circles, everyone is welcome to share feedbacks and experiences.
