"I learnt that there are multiple benefits to mindfulness, some of which I felt during and after the session (I felt calmer and less stressed - even though I hadn't really noticed being either of those things before experiencing the contrast while in the room, and afterwards.)Recommend? Yes, definitely. The morning proved to be an excellent introduction to the ways in which we can all relax and focus more, and enjoy all the other benefits of mindfulness."
