Training for front-line staff to build knowledge about basic anatomy and physiology principles as they apply to sound manual task (manual handling) technique and a safe approach at work. Specific task problem solving is encouraged in a highly interactive forum for participants. We turn some age-old assumptions upside-down and inside out. Workplace competency assessment is included.

Applied Relaxation Strategies to Experiment with Mindfulness
What does it mean to be in step, in balance, and to act with grace? We have been trained, throughout life, to struggle to achieve. This habitual process of over-doing can bring destructive patterns, causing tension in the body and in our relationships with self and others. To relax is not to collapse, but to mindfully unravel ourselves from tension. In this session, participants will be introduced to the concept of acceptance, mindfulness, and development of internal calm. They will be guided with techniques to develop internal awareness. Simple calming hand postures and breath techniques will be introduced. Physiologically, this is an experiment with the autonomic nervous system. It may help balance the acidity in our system. Emotionally and mentally this process allows for tranquillity, lightness in attitude, and good humour. Most persons new to relaxation or meditation are surprised to find that they are able to sit still for any length of time! This session will help ease restlessness of the mind.
From high octane to relaxation or creativity and innovation.
