The Chi Chill Zone for Parents, Surbiton

Sep 13 2017 20:00 - 21:00

Coffee Bar, Surbiton Hill Methodist Church, 39 Ewell Rd, KT6 6AF Surbiton

Slightly different to our regular Chi Chill Zones, this event is designed for parents and includes a 20 minute talk on Mindful Parenting by a speaker from ParentingSuccess Coaching.

After the talk, you will learn how to beat stress and anxiety with Mindful Motion exercises that combine flowing tai chi and yoga moves with mindfulness meditation.

  • Beat stress
  • Learn deep relaxation techniques
  • Balance your body
  • Clear your mind
  • Achieve inner calm
  • Recharge your batteries
  • Spend quality time on yourself

If you would like to achieve a zen-like feeling and to learn how to just be in the moment, then this is the event for you. It is easy for beginners to pick up and by simply focusing on the movements, you will experience a deep sense of calm.

As the sun sets, specialist mood lighting takes over to create dreamy, otherworldly patterns on the surfaces and people around you whilst meditative music plays in the background to further enhance the relaxing feeling.

This is suitable for all levels of fitness. No special equipment required; just bring a bottle of water and wear loose clothing.

Venue: Coffee Bar (upstairs), Surbiton Hill Methodist Church, 39 Ewell Rd, Surbiton KT6 6AF.
Free parking on either side of the church.

Is it suitable for beginners? Absolutely; no experience is required.

I already practice tai chi or yoga, will I benefit from this session? Definitely, the focus of this session is relaxation rather than specific techniques.

Do I need a yoga mat? No, just bring a bottle of water and wear loose clothing and trainers or plimsolls.

I'm not very flexible, will I find it difficult? No, you just have to move within your own comfortable range of motion.

Is this suitable for children? The recommended minimum age is 16 as the activities will be very slow and quiet in nature.

Will there be a lot of meditation? We may do some seated meditation but most of the time will be spent standing or moving around the room.
