About this Event

Can you relate to any of the following?

  • I feel constantly distracted and connected to my devices
  • Stressed, overwhelmed or anxious?
  • Like I never have enough time and am always rushing?
  • Wired yet depleted of energy physically, mentally or emotionally?
  • Like I've lost the ability to regularly enjoy the present moment much and experience joy?
  • Overwhelmed by all the wellness information out there? Like I don't know where to start....

Do you want to feel:

  • Calm + grounded?
  • Focused + productive?
  • Excited by life and work?
  • Happy + present?
  • Vital + energised?
  • Grateful?
  • Connected to those around you?

Then Ovio Mindfulness can help. With over 3,000 published studies, Mindfulness is one of the most well-researched, evidence-based pathways to feeling calm, creative, happy, healthy. And more connected to both the world around you and those you love.

In this immersive afternoon retreat, you'll have the opportunity to relax, revitalise and connect with a like-minded community, whilst learning this powerful new life skill to help manage stress and emotional reactivity.

Our Ovio Mindfulness Workshop is evidence-based, practical and grounded in everyday life examples. It will not be another thing to add to your already-full plate - you will learn a new way of living that takes just a few minutes a day and rewires your brain for happiness.

Kristy von Minden is an accredited Ovio Mindfulness Teacher with a special interest in Neuroscience. An experienced facilitator, keynote speaker, wellness blogger and mental wellness advocate, Kristy is regularly invited to speak at events to inspire positive change. She also works regularly with leading businesses, supporting them with their wellness programmes to reduce stress and enhance health, happiness, productivity and creativity. Her mission is to motivate people to create small but powerful daily habits to take care of their minds, just like we brush our teeth or exercise.

Mindfulness has profoundly changed Kristy's life, helping her recover from a spinal fusion, five years of chronic pain, burnout and anxiety. She credits her meditation and mindfulness practise with helping her not only recover but to giving her the mental clarity and energy to launch and build her business Mind Bright.

"Our brains are our most precious resource today - we need to stop treating them like machines and ensure our mental wellness is top of our agenda.

"Doing a great job at work and prirotising our wellness do not have to be mutually exclusive…in fact, science tells us that the more we look after our mental, physical and emotional health, the better our brains will work - we’ll unlock creativity, strategic thinking, problem-solving, productivity, better decision making, improved communication and empathy. All vital attributes for performance, health and happiness", says von Minden.
