NMC Mindfulness is delivered by Kay who started practicing mindfulness several years ago through the NeuroMuscular Centre. Having found it a very powerful tool to help support her own mental wellbeing, she decided to share some of the things she has learnt.
Kay has delivered live Mindfulness sessions (both on zoom and at NMC) and has a Soundcloud channel with a number of short recorded mindfulness meditations for you to practice in your own time. These meditations are updated regularly.
We also have an NMC Mindfulness facebook group
