This week’s theme for students has been ‘healthy lifestyles’, and I thought it was a great opportunity to build in some wellbeing events for staff too! Our in-school Connexions adviser Lorna is also a fantastic yoga teacher (her website is here), and I asked her to deliver this afternoon’s 15-Minute Forum on quick and easy relaxation techniques for staff.

Lorna talked us through a short stretching routine, a guided relaxation and three really simple yoga poses, all aimed at ‘quietening the mind’ – something I’m sure we could all use more often.

I’ve contributed ‘The Stress Pocketbook’ to our T&L library, and would welcome suggestions for other such additions!
