Mindful Drumming & Letting Go Two inclusive programmes for adults promoting relaxation, mindfulness, and creativity: Mindful Drumming is a programme of creative music making with drums and percussion. This regular inclusive music session for adults focuses on mental health and wellbeing. Participants can enjoy tapping into their natural rhythms in a creative and supportive environment whilst socialising and meeting new friends. Sessions are designed to support participants in experimenting with music and instruments, with a focus on rhythmic sounds, and building confidence in their own musical abilities. All sessions are lead by a group of professionally trained Paragon musicians and practitioners who specialise in supporting people with access requirements. "Mindful Drumming gives me an opportunity to close my eyes and just get lost in the music - when the end of the session comes I realise I hadn't noticed the time pass at all!"- Paragon participant Please note that places must be reserved in advance of payment - for more information or to reserve a place please contact Laura Hundert at [email protected] Current workshop dates and times can be viewed here. Letting Go is linked to Mindful Drumming and is Paragon's programme of relaxing Online yoga and mindfulness sessions for participants, carers, parents, family members and Paragon staff. The class has been designed to be open and accessible to everyone and is suitable for people who either prefer to sit down or stand up. The focus is on breath work, mindfulness, and gentle stretching. You are welcome to join and you won’t need any prior experience or special equipment to join in. The class can also be enjoyed together with carers, parents and family members. We had some great feedback last time around from folks who took part together, commenting on how relaxing it was in the moment, and how helpful it was to use some of the techniques independently outside of the class: "We’ve found the Letting Go sessions such a great experience for both of us, especially helping to calm us down on stressful days." - Carer Letting Go is led by experienced yoga teacher, Fiona Corr-MacLeod, and now takes place online on Wednesdays from 10 - 11am.
