If you attend the remaining two classes, you can pay at the rate of £6 per class rather than the drop-in rate of £8/£7 conc.

Your first class with Em is FREE

"As someone lacking in hand-leg coordination, physical classes worry me. Em’s classes are patient and gentle, and they encourage a playful and kind exploration of one’s energies. Her Qigong moves are well-explained, and I feel much more relaxed and energised after sessions. 15 people showing up on a sunny summer evening for Qigong tells me that... there is something Em is doing right!” - Dr Perpetua Neo, 29

Although you're welcome to drop-in to any of the sessions, you will get more out of your qigong practice if you attend a cycle of 5 sessions focusing on a particular sequence.

For an individual session to support your practice and optimise the benefits of your Qigong or Tai Chi (£40/£35), contact Em.

Our world is a very stressful place and although we cannot get rid of stress completely - it is an intrinsic part of our lives -, we can learn to cope with it and to alleviate some of the acute physical symptoms of stress (the 'fight or flight' reaction) by focusing our attention  on the place of inner calm using Mindfulness and meditation.

With over 5000 scientific publications evaluating the effectiveness of mindfulness based approaches to stress reduction and therapy, this approach based on Eastern traditions is rapidly becoming embraced by the Western psychological and medical communities.

Studies have shown that people who practise mindfulness meditation are better able to relax, and have more control of their emotions.   Meditation has been found to lower the levels of our stress hormone cortisol and to increase production of serotonin, the brain chemical which helps balance our mood and behaviour.

The Hove StressBusters Mindfulness programme now includes
regular monthly drop-in workshops, Mindfulness Days and 6 week courses.
All sessions are suitable for beginners as well as for anyone wishing to practise and extend their existing mindfulness skills.

Wendy Guest is a SMART-accredited Mindfulness, Meditation and Relaxation Instructor.
