Introduction to Mindfulness
Anna set up her own coaching and training business in 2015. She offers a diverse range of services to support individuals and groups at significant moments in their personal and professional lives, so they can thrive. She focuses on supporting people to bring our their best so they can find their own solutions to overcome challenges and build resilience. Using mindfulness is just one small part of her work.
Anna sings with ‘Sing in the City’ choir in Edinburgh and has been offering mindfulness sessions via Zoom to the members who are socially isolating to help them through this difficult time when they can’t meet, socialise and sing together. She has kindly shared an introduction to Mindfulness with us. You can follow her on Facebook and find more information about her business on her website.
Here are a few links for more information about Anna:
Anne discusses our plans for the next few months and what we are doing to keep The Cheyne Gang singing at home.
