THE LETCHWORTH CENTRE FOR HEALTHY LIVING

CELEBRATING 36 YEARS

Classes, Classes, Workshops, Workshops, Complementary Complementary Therapies Therapies & & Counselling Counselling JANUARY-APRIL 2020 Charity Reg. No. 295219 Established 1984


W

riting at the end of this, our 36th year – a year in which our work has flourished -- we look forward with much optimism to the decade ahead. There appears to be a greater need than ever for the methods we teach and for the counselling and clinical services we provide. The Challenge of 2020 and beyond Our success is, however, not without its challenges. We have, quite simply, run out of space in the former cottage Roberta Meldrum hospital buildings which have been our home since 1988 – and their 100+ year old infrastructure – particularly roads Director and roofs (as many of you will know!) – is in great need of attention. Clearly this beautiful 8 acre site offers enormous potential – but it is nevertheless in the Greenbelt where restrictions apply on any expansion. That said, we have been successful in gaining planning permission to extend our existing buildings – and our main goal over the next few years will be to secure the funds to enable phased building to go ahead. Improvements have already begun: in the Spring we were able to construct three new toilets (including one with disabled access) in the Roth Building thanks to the generosity of the Valiant Charitable Trust – a local trust established in the memory of the late Sir Ian Dixon.

A Voluntary Sector Conference planned for February will add to the varied schedule. Our new charity shop, Namaste, sells pre-loved and new clothes and eco-friendly items to help support both Positive Movement and Mindfulness programmes for young people.

Meditation and T’ai Chi Meditation Pranayama T’ai Chi

PRANAYAMA, MANTRA & MEDITATION - THE ART OF BREATHING WELL

Kate Tomlinson 500 hour MindFlowYoga Qualified Yoga Teacher 12 weeks - last class 31 March Half-term 18 February Pranayama (the control of breathing) is the traditional technique of slow and rhythmical breathing. Research has shown that positive breath control can have a direct effect on our wellbeing and is effective in reducing anxiety. With conscious breathing, the body relaxes and the mind quietens, while the breath becomes deeper and more efficient. The technique alleviates stress by switching on the body’s relaxation response and reducing its fight or flight mechanism. This powerful course will take you through the breathing process step by step, teaching you to use awareness and mindfulness to alter your normal breathing habits and build your lung capacity – thereby bringing wide-ranging health benefits, both physical and psychological.
