Meeting the challenges of a complex world can be tough. Juggling volatile business environments, families and relationships can put enormous strain on your body, mind & emotions. Taking 'time out' to calm the chaos is essential. We offer a pathway to health & well-being that will help you to achieve a realistic work-personal-life balance. It is a foundation from which you can respond positively to stressors at home & work, make life-enhancing decisions & put a 'little bit of magic' back into your life.

"As a runner and a cross-fitter I have been attending yoga classes for the last two years. I found Anna King’s yoga classes excellent.
I was extremely tight with painful lower back and hamstrings. By attending yoga on a regular basis all that has all changed. Anna explains all the movements really well . You also get a good workout. With Anna’s help my core is stronger I am much more flexible and injury free.
Thanks Anna". John Donnellan, Businessman, Galway.
During our workshop you will:
Learn how to enjoy a healthy lifestyle, take time to relax, & implement a work - life balance.
Discover 6 practices to overcome the daily stresses that constrain life, health, passion & happiness.
Explore specialised techniques to promote emotional, physical & mental resilience, and help reduce the triggers that deplete energy, both in the workplace and at home.
Who are these programme for?
Do you need to take time 'out' from juggling all your responsibilities to regain energy, de-stress & improve physical & mental well-being; or do you simply need some space to make an important life decision and (re)discover a sense of well-being.
Why attend our Programmes?
Professor Ian Robertson's groundbreaking research, The Stress Test, reveals that '... the right level of challenge and stress can help people to flourish and achieve more than they ever thought possible'. However, learning how to re-shape challenges into opportunities and protect our health from the strain of life, requires practice and training.
The American Psychological Association's annual survey in 2012 revealed that the U.S.A was on the 'verge of a stress-related public health crisis', and Ireland is not far behind, as people suffer chronic health issues related to stressful lifestyles. Indeed, The World Health Organisation (WHO) recognises workplace stress as a global epidemic.
Creating space to explore how to re-shape life's challenges into creative opportunities is therefore essential. Equally, integrating this work into a life-long, manageable and enjoyable lived-experience is essential.
Taking 'time out' to calm the chaos.
Harnessing the power to re-claim our well-being requires teasing out individual needs and adopting everyday health-promoting practices that are both simple and achievable. Our programmes offer 6 practices that will build a strong foundation from which individuals will be able to re-frame stressful experiences, make life-enhancing choices and support emotional & mental resilience.
Experience Work-Life-Balance. Our programmes help you identify the mental, physical and psychological risks associated with stressful environments. We provide simple ways to help you manage and reduce triggers that deplete energy, both in the workplace and at home. Space will be given to explore how to (re)establish a healthy lifestyle, improve your relationships and develop good communication.
Using Anna's unique Body-Mind-Movement for Life Programme, participants are guided through experiences that are designed to get to the heart of the today's lifestyle challenges.
