NMC Mindfulness

My name is Kay and my background is in product and graphic design.

I started practicing mindfulness two years ago through the NeuroMuscular Centre and found it to be a very powerful tool to help support my own mental wellbeing. I wanted to take this opportunity to share some of the things I've learned along the way. 

 

I feel it is important to work in a transparent way offering warmth and acceptance ensuring people have a safe space to self explore. I am extremely passionate about helping others.

What is Mindfulness?

 

Research has shown that mindfulness helps us reduce anxiety and depression. Mindfulness teaches us how to respond to stress with awareness of what is happening in the present moment, rather than simply acting instinctively, unaware of what emotions or motives may be driving that decision.

 

We are dedicated to supporting your mental wellbeing using short mindfulness meditations. Mindfulness means living in the moment and awakening to experience. Observe your thoughts, feelings and emotions from a distance, without judgment or the need to categories them as good or bad. The popularity of mindfulness is understandable with the complexity and informative distractions of our fast moving networked world. We explore different techniques, breathing exercises and relaxation ideas.

Description: If you haven't taken part in a mindfulness session before, this recording offers insights into what to expect. The internet can sometimes give false impressions depending on the style or source of the meditation. Our meditations are simple and can be adapted to support your requirements, with an understanding that everyone may be using mindfulness for different reasons.

2. The Body scan meditation

Description: The body scan is a 20 minute meditation that focuses on each area of the body in turn. The purpose is to tune into your body to reconnect your body and mind and take note of any sensations you're feeling. Some also find this meditation a good relaxation tool as it gives your mind something physical to focus on.

3. Kay’s 10 minute daily meditation

Description: This simple meditation is designed to fit into a busy day. You can practice any time throughout the day. This recording looks at awareness of breath and pattern of thought.

4. Breathing meditation for stress & anxiety

https://soundcloud.com/user-184074715/breathing-meditation-for-stress-anxiety

Description: This session focus is on controlled breathing to help reduce stress and anxiety by giving your lungs a gentle workout. By counting your breaths in and out in a controlled rhythm and holding for short moments, you can slowly reduce tension in your body and slow your heart rate to feel a sense of calm.

5. A dream destination in 20-minutes

https://soundcloud.com/user-184074715/dream-destination

Description: As many of you have missed holidays and found lockdown testing, this meditation is taking you away to your dream destination. Visualization relaxation is an effective way to relax the mind and body by imagining a relaxing scene, such as a beach, garden, meadow, or any other peaceful place. I wanted to takes you to a beautiful beach of your choice. If you are enjoying this version of meditation why not try it again with another location? Find a place that makes you smile.

If you do try our meditations we would love to hear about your progress. This helps us understand what you find helpful and what you enjoy about the sessions.
