Have your say

Learn to relax and take life’s ups and downs in your stride at Sophrology classes, starting in Spalding with free introductory sessions next week after a hugely successful launch at Whaplode.

Anyone regardless of age, sex and physical condition can benefit from this discipline of relaxation, gentle movement and breathing techniques which helps you overcome difficulties from insomnia and depression to panic attacks and improves general wellbeing.

Very popular in France, Sophrology is relatively new to the English-speaking world, and we’re lucky to have Lynn Exley, one of the first graduates of the new UK Sophrology Academy, setting up practice in Spalding.

New six-week courses will start in the town in February, but Lynn is keen to give as many people as possible a taster next week.

Telephone her now on 07553 354845 to book in for one of the free introductory sessions on the following days:

l Monday, January 21 at 5pm, Welland Workspace, 10 Pinchbeck Road, Spalding;

l Wednesday, January 23 at 1pm at Aspire, The Crescent, Spalding;

l Friday, January 25 at noon at Welland Workspace, as above.

Lynn, who lives in Whaplode St Catherine, used to work in the high-stress environment of banking and finance and changed direction a few years ago, training as a Yoga teacher and then a Sophrologist.

She said: “Neuro-scientists are now able to test how the brain responds to different therapies and have found the mindfulness techniques used in Sophrology to be particularly effective in fighting the harmful impact of stress.

“As part of my Sophrology teacher training I held a series of sessions in Whaplode and the people who came found them highly beneficial, particularly because you can use the techniques in your everyday life whenever you feel anxious or stressed.”
