Mindfulness Meditation & Mindful Movement Programs for Seniors

Mindfulness Meditation 


It may feel normal to be stressed out, over-thinking, zoning out or becoming irritated, but it doesn’t have to be that way.  

Your inner world creates your experience of the outer world.  

By learning how to manage that inner world, you take back control and create clarity & inner peace.

This program can be offered as a course or ongoing class.

Mindful Movement


Decreased mobility has a domino effect, impacting the functioning of the digestive system and affecting mental health. 

Incorporating mindful movement, this program incorporates movement from the comfort of a chair to increase strength and flexibility.

The mindful movement program can be offered as a course or ongoing class.

Wellbeing Workshops 

Samantha, Social Coordinator, The Landings


Social Coordinator, The Landings Retirement Village

"I reached out to Tania to organise mindfulness & chair yoga classes in the retirement village where I work. Tania is an exceptional teacher and our residents love her classes, finding her style very calm and caring."



Resident at The Landings Retirement Village

"I always look forward to our classes with Tania. Each week, I have a deeper sense of calm, less anxiety about ‘what ifs’ and am better able to enjoy life in the present. Very inspirational."

Mental health and wellbeing are impacted by diet, sleep, relationships and more. That’s why our workshops and programs are designed to motivate healthy lifestyle habits and practices.

Popular Workshops with our seniors include:

  • A perfect Night's Sleep;
  • Optimising Gut Health;
  • Ayurveda - the Wisdom of How to Eat, not What to Eat;
  • The Art of Peaceful Communication;

Mindful Movement Program

It may seem natural and normal to lose mobility, strength and flexibility as you age. Mindset influences your capacity to stay active and your ability to stay active influences your mindset. So when it's not possible to stand or walk unaccompanied, the options for movement are reduced significantly.

Our mindful movement program brings together the ancient teachings of yoga with the modern Neuro science of mindfulness to deliver a 60-minute session that:

  • Increases circulation;
  • Improves quality of breathing;
  • Soothes the nervous system;
  • Increase flexibility of the upper & lower body;
  • Improves posture; 
  • Increases bone density;
  • Builds muscle strength & tone; 
  • Improves sleep;
  • Enhances mood.

After working with Tania, I feel I am starting to relax more. My sleep has improved and I enjoy the social side. I’ve been encouraging  a lot of friends around the village to come and give it a try; having a lovely teacher makes it so worthwhile.”
