Meditation, Mindfulness & Relaxation practices for Pilates classes

This workshop may also be of interest to and is suitable for bodyworkers & fitness professionals.

Tuesday 4th February 2025, 2pm-5pm


With mental health issues, and levels of stress, overwhelm and burnout on the increase, incorporating mindfulness, body scans, breath practices and simple meditations into your Pilates classes will give your students the perfect addition to their holistic health and physical well-being.

Coming from a very physical background in my earlier years, I never had the confidence to teach or include body scans, mindfulness or simple meditations at the end of my Pilates classes. I used to worry that people would think they weren’t ‘doing’ enough. I’ve evolved my teaching approach significantly over the past two decades. Now, I confidently integrate holistic practices that nurture the body, mind, and soul. These practices provide your students with valuable tools. By integrating these techniques, you empower your students to manage stress effectively, promote mental clarity, and cultivate a deeper sense of calm and balance in their lives.

We will cover:

During this 3-hour workshop led by Harmonise Founder and yoga and pilates teacher trainer, Clare Francis, you will experience various techniques and learn about their associated benefits, to include:

  • Progressive muscle relaxation
  • Body scans
  • Simple visualisations
  • Breathing techniques to balance the nervous system
  • Breathing techniques to aid sleep, healing and restoration
  • Concentration and meditation practices to focus, calm and relax the mind

Dive into a dynamic blend of theory, hands-on practical exploration, and interactive teaching practise with partners.

By the end of this workshop, you’ll not only grasp the concepts but also feel thoroughly confident to seamlessly integrate your newfound knowledge. Get excited to transform your teaching approach and implement these techniques right away.
