Workshops

Our workshops are run by fully qualified and insured trainers. We have a wide range of workshops available which can be used on their own or as a course. They are usually around 2 hours in length but this can be adapted to suit. Materials are provided and in most cases there are handouts or booklets to accompany the work. The workshops have been designed and costed for up to 12 participants. We can accommodate more but there may be an additional cost.

The following are examples but we are very flexible and can modify them to merge topics within one session. Most sessions can be delivered in other languages if needed (Urdu, Punjabi, Bengali, Gujurati, Hindi and Mirpuri) Every session/ course begins with a short health and safety session and for courses we ask participants to complete a medical questionnaire to ensure their safety.

We design our courses around the concept devised by Jenny Moseley called the “Five Wells”. She asserts that if we do a little of each well every day then our lives are more balanced and we can cope with stress much easier. We adopt this principle when working with children too as they have their own difficulties at times.

The Wells are:The Wells 

The workshops can be put together as a course to cover each of these aspects. For example, we can do a photo session and make frames to put the photos in for creativity, physical could be massage, cognitive could be aromatherapy learning about oils, spiritual could be the drama or relaxation sessions, and all of it will be fun!

The workshops are great bonding sessions between parent/guardian and child and can equally be used as Lads and Dads sessions which could be delivered by a male therapist.

Sessions cost £125 each and 5 sessions £600.

Drama Workshops

The aims of drama workshops are to help children understand how to face factsand to interpret without prejudice. It also helps children to develop a range and degree of identification with other people to help develop a set of principles. Drama workshops also help children build confidence and speak out sometimes through drama when they are not able to do so in their everyday life.

Workshop Example.

Warm up

To start the lesson children will be asked about their knowledge of drama, what they think of it and how it is used.

Game 1
Children will then be asked to get into pairs and tell each other a little about themselves. They then will be asked to return and form a circle. Volunteers will then stand in the midle of the circle and tell the rest of the group about what they have learned about their partner. They will do this by becoming their partner, acting as if it is themselves they are talking about.

Objectives
This game helps children demonstrate mental ability, an abilityto recall informationand remember it and communicate characters different from themselves.

Exercise Sessions

Pilates
Pilates improves the body's posture and flexibility by toning the muscles, using slow and controlled movements to prevent injury. Correct postural alignment prior to any movements taking place during pilates sessions is key to the success of this technique

Yoga
Like ayurvedic and traditional chinese medicine, yoga is actually a 'complete science of life'. In yoga, physical exercises, known as 'asanas', are practised regularly in order strengthen and tone the nervous system, relieve tension, improve circulation and increase flexibility. Each asana (or 'steady post') involves gentle stretching and deep, meditative breathing. The four main styles of yoga are iyengar, ashtanga, sivananda and viniyoga.

Yoga For Children
Children are lead through creative stories and exciting adventures that stimulate their imagination and help to maintain their natural flexibility.

Health & Wellbeing Days

We are able to offer many therapies and workshops as part of a Well Being day or promotional event. This can include offering holistic therapies, Mehndi, beauty treatments, workshops or exercise sessions. This may be a large event involving many therapists or a small event needing only one.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your hard work on Saturday - I know that both you and Jagir didn’t stop! The parents/carers and the children all thought that having the therapies available to them was amazing and a real treat. I am only sorry that I didn’t get a treatment myself - oh well, perhaps next time! We will be in touch again when we are planning our next event. Beyond the Horizon
