Why this course?
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), mental health is “a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”
This course bridges the gap between meditation as a practice and how it can have a positive effect on your mental well-being so you can find ease, well-being and peace whenever you need to.
This program is for you if you are looking to restore your mental well-being, increase your self-awareness, deal with negative patterns and build inner resilience. Too often mental health is confused with mental illness, mental health is something that we all have that can vary day by day. By learning practical skills it’s possible to improve your mental well-being and deal with negative emotion, thought and belief patterns which may be outdated and no longer serve us.
Successful mental well-being is not about never having negative emotions or thoughts, it’s about pro-actively applying the skills you’ll learn on this course when they arise and being able to process them. When we are able to do this skillfully, we can operate in a world from response rather than reaction.
In this 8-week course you will receive short lectures, experiential learning, journaling exercises, meditation and homework each week. I’ll be sharing tools from the iRest® protocol as well as how you can support yourself physically, mentally and emotionally through lifestyle choices, yoga, breathing and sleep.
This comprehensive course will give you practical steps to:
Use your practice as a place to safely welcome your emotions, thoughts and beliefs
Cultivate increased self-awareness
De-stress your nervous system through breathing techniques, yoga and meditation
Improve your overall well-being including sleep

"MY WORK WITH CLIENTS HAS BEEN CALLED TRANSFORMATIONAL BUT IT’S REALLY THE TOOLS I TEACH FOR PEOPLE TO CREATE THEIR OWN
THE POWER LIES WITHIN ALL OF US"
“Davina has been a source of support, healing and inspiration. She teaches me not only what practices to be trying and how to do so but also why something in particular and the benefits to be gained. I am more aware of what my body needs to revitalise and techniques to try when I am feeling stressed and anxious. She listens well, is very conscious of her clients’ needs and has a calming tone and demeanour. I feel fortunate that I met Davina as I am truly enjoying the yoga, meditation and breathing as well as the friendship.”
