"With a small understanding of yoga and mindfulness I went in to the sessions with Bridget looking to increase these further. Originally it was for personal reasons with the view that if I better myself that will be reflected within my work. However, I just couldn’t wait to share the practices and ideas with my colleagues. The shared process of growth and self awareness is exciting and having the support and input of others makes it so much more fulfilling. The particular techniques we learnt really help our clientele to engage in relaxation and become more aware of the here and now, a tool that’s really undervalued in our current society. Our working day is flexible and at any given opportunity we try to incorporate mindfulness. Whether that be when we are walking somewhere, tasting something we have made or purely sitting for 5 minutes with a particular focus in mind. The flexibility of mindfulness allows it to fit the working day and be aimed at the emotional feel of the group at the time. It’s a tool and a thought process that we will never leave behind."

'We would like to thank Bridget for visiting the Mayflower Theatre and giving our employees an insight of what mindfulness is and how we can incorporate in our day to day lives. It was great having the chance to practice some techniques too. On behalf of the employees at Mayflower Theatre, thank you!’
