I have been teaching stress management and healthcare courses for over 25 years. These include yoga-based therapeutic exercise, breathing techniques:: meditation/mindfulness and well-being coaching
For the past 18 months, I have taught taught staff at two major hospitals in East Sussex. The feedback has been outstanding and the well-being management team has asked for some training films, to back up the teaching and also to help staff that have been too busy to attend the workshops.
We are also developing a relaxation space at the hospitals, in order to give staff a place to recharge and revitalise
I envisage making these films available across the NHS, as the exercises tutorials are easy to follow and highly beneficial, both at work and at home.
Initially,we will make a series of approx 10 short films, each with a specific theme.
For example, "Exercises to achieve a good night's sleep","Exercises to start the day, centred and Energized"
The money raised will be used to make and edit the films, as well as hire the venue where we will film. We are working to a very low budget, with the generous help of an experienced filmmaker who has experience of making films for the NHS.
