A trauma-informed yoga and breath work class to find space and peace from anxiety, post-trauma and stress. Together, in a safe, supportive group, we will safely explore tools to grow yourself again from the ground up, re-building self-confidence, self-trust and self-worth.

When experiencing chronic stress and anxiety, the nervous system has become used to working constantly from a place of threat, in an attempt to keep you safe. Yoga re-builds the link between the body and the brain, helping to balance the nervous system from the bottom up into a place of safety and calm, settling the mind and physical responses to stress. We also build 'watchtower' skills through mindful awareness to promote self-compassion and acceptance. All you need is you, something comfy to move in and a non-slip surface or mat. Some cushions and a little pile of books are helpful as props, and a blanket for relaxation.

Abingdon and Witney College is subject to Ofsted regulation and is required to work with all its students to make sure they understand Government initiatives around Safeguarding, Prevent and Fundamental British Values. Information on these matters will be shared with you during your course.

You will also be asked to complete monitoring paperwork, which helps us to deliver course content to the highest quality.

Courses can fill fast, so please enrol early to avoid disappointment. Decisions on whether a course is to run are made two weeks prior to the start date - an email will be sent to you should there be changes to your course or if it is cancelled. Please check your inbox leading up to your course, including the junk folders. For anyone without an email account, our Admissions team will phone you instead.

For the first week of the course you will need to bring a valid form of identification; this includes passport, driving licence, debit/credit card, Birth Certificate or National Insurance card.

Please note - you should be 19 years old or over at 31st August 2020 prior to starting the course.
Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The 19+ full fee button displays the full fee that may apply. As the rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can also visit the Course Fees & Finance page by searching 'Fees and bursaries' at the top of the page.
