Optimise your Sleep Mini SeriesHow rested do you feel in the morning? How energised do you feel throughout the day? And how easy is it for you to fall asleep?

If you are struggling with waking up in the morning, staying awake during the day or falling and staying asleep throughout the night, then this programme on how to optimise sleep is for you.

Sleep is the foundation of our health and wellbeing but it is often pushed down our list of priorities. The ‘Optimise your Sleep’ mini series will help you take ownership of your sleep and make it a priority, in three parts.

A ‘Sleep Fundamentals’ masterclass (8 March 10h30-15h30) will lay the foundations and fundamentals of sleep and will help you identify concrete sleep strategies to put into practice
A follow-up ‘Sleep Consolidation’ workshop (15 March 15h – 16h30) will allow you to follow-up on your progress, review your sleep commitments and get further support
A One-on-One Coaching Session (1 hour) will help you to tackle any individual obstacles related to sleep. 

More details:
In the ‘Sleep Fundamentals’ masterclass (4 hours) you will:
– Get a good understanding of sleep and its importance
– Understand the science of sleep, sleep cycles and the impact of sleep deprivation
– Learn how to prioritise your sleep in order to benefit your overall well-being
– Identify sleep enemies and how to overcome them
– Explore and identify concrete strategies to improve your sleep

In the ‘Sleep Consolidation’ workshop (1.5 hours) you will:

The One-on-One Coaching session (1 hours) will provide you with a confidential space in which you can address any specific issues that you may have in relation to your sleep or the commitments that you took. The coaching session will be conducted according to the standards and ethics of the International Coaching Federation. The session will include a goal-oriented conversation, questions addressed to you by the coach, and actions and/or awareness that you will identify based on the coaching conversation.

The mini series ‘Optimise your sleep’, will be delivered via Zoom by Gabriela D. Spencer, Life and Executive Professional Coach, specialising in overall well-being, be it physical, emotional, social, work related and even spiritual.

Laughter Yoga WorkshopReduce stress and cultivate positive emotions with Laughter Yoga

Did you know that your laughter is a powerful wellbeing tool, enabling you to reduce stress and anxiety? How often do you laugh? Probably not that often, after all we are living in difficult times and there does not seem to be that many reasons to laugh about. And how many times did you laugh today? Probably not much, perhaps three to five times, if any.

Did you know that children can laugh up to 200 times a day, whilst adults barely laugh 20 times a day? From stress reduction to immunity boosting, your laughter comes with many health benefits. The Positive Psychology encourages us to cultivate the positive emotions and as a result our wellbeing, creativity & innovation will increase. One of the ways to increase your positive emotions is to simply laugh. 

In this workshop, 
– You will learn the benefits of laughter
– You will experience intentional and natural laughter through the practice of laughter yoga

What to expect?
✔︎- A safe space to let go
✔︎- Friendly atmosphere
– Breathing techniques
– Laughter stimulating exercises 
– Clapping & Dancing

Duration: 1,5 hours
Price: 20 euro

Restorative YogaAn introductory session of restorative yoga, with Isabel Carbajal. 25 euro.

*FR* Le restorative yoga (ou yoga régénérateur) déteint le corps et calme le esprit. La pratique est centrée sur la relaxation comme antidote au stress et à ses conséquences néfastes. Ici, pas de stretching ni d’efforts musculaires, mais des postures douces et soutenues qui invitent à la détente et mobilisent ainsi les fonctions régénératrices du corps. Parce qu’il aide à rééquilibrer le système nerveux, le yoga régénérateur est une pratique puissante pour faire face au burn-out. 

Cet atelier s’adresse à des femmes qui frôlent ou traversent un burn-out. Le but est de découvrir les bienfaits du yoga régénérateur et se familiariser avec les bases. Les participants apprendront comment installer chez soi une mini-pratique quotidienne avec l’intention de trouver en soi le calme et l’ancrage nécessaires pour avancer.

*EN* Restorative yoga calms the body and slows the mind. The practice focuses on relaxation as an antidote to stress and its harmful consequences. Here, no stretching or muscular effort, but gentle and sustained postures that invite relaxation and thus mobilize the regenerative functions of the body. Because it helps rebalance the nervous system, regenerative yoga is a powerful practice for dealing with burnout.

This workshop is aimed at women who are close to or going through burnout. The goal is to discover the benefits of regenerative yoga and become familiar with the basics. Participants will learn how to set up a daily mini-practice at home with the intention of finding within oneself the calm and grounding necessary to move forward.
