MINDFULNESS STARTS HERE
Whether you're looking to improve your health, learn to unplug, or re-engage with life by getting out of auto-pilot, our mindfulness courses are designed to help restore balance and focus, while increasing your capacity to deal with stress and conflict (resilience).
Forest City Mindfulness delivers a range of affordable, fun, scientifically-supported programs that dramatically improve quality of life. From day-long retreats for resting and recharging, to intensive programs that transform your relationship to life’s stressors, our mission is to make mindfulness mainstream by sharing its transformative benefits with Londoners and members of our surrounding communities.
All our classes are secular in nature and led by qualified, experienced and caring teachers. Our inviting studio is equipped with everything you’ll need for an optimal mindfulness experience.
