Mindfulness 8-Week Program
Is a program, for a diversity of women only to learn more about and experience mindfulness for themselves. You have the choice of Group 1 on every Thursday at 1 to 2pm or Group 2 on every Friday 11am to 12pm for a 1 hour session at our new Women’s Centre in Stones Corner, Brisbane or via Zoom. In that hour, we spend some time “checking-in”, learning a bit about a mindfulness technique and then practising altogether. These groups are co-facilitated by a mindfulness coach and one of WHQ’s amazing Women’s Health and Well-being Practitioners and Counsellors, so you can feel fully supported as you move through this journey towards a more mindful life.
Once you book we will provide you with full details. If you have any questions before that please do not hesitate to contact us to ask about the Mindfulness Programs.
Please note: As this is an 8-week group, if you cannot see a mindfulness group on the online booking calendar, we may be right in the middle of running this program. Please check the website at a later date to book yourself in for an upcoming group. If you are joining us via Zoom you just need internet connection and a phone, tablet or computer with a camera and microphone.
Yoga at Your Place
Is Women’s Health Queensland’s first ever online yoga classes, delivered by a qualified yoga instructor, weekly via Zoom. Classes run every Monday from 2-3pm. These classes are for all women – from complete beginner to advanced! For this reason, classes are taught using a gentle hatha-vinyasa style, where we focus on connecting breath with movement. In the same way you would attend a yoga studio in person, each week you are able to book yourself into the yoga class via the online booking calendar below. Once you book in and have signed the required Confidentiality Agreement, you will be sent a link to the private Zoom group for the date you booked in for.
Please note: bookings close 1 hour BEFORE the class for that week, so if you’re hoping to attend the class, please make sure you book in nice and early.
Online Childbirth Preparation Classes
These classes are designed as a one-off 3-hour session covering topics similar to a hospital-based antenatal class. You’ll get all the info you need to feel knowledgeable and empowered as you journey through pregnancy and birth.
Classes are facilitated by one of our experienced, registered midwives and run on the Zoom platform which can be accessed on a phone, tablet, laptop or computer for free.
These classes are will be a private and closed group of no more than 10 women – partners welcome.
*Please note that Childbirth Preparation classes have a capped number of participants. We invite birth partners to attend these classes but they MUST book their own spot each class. This applies even if the birth partner will be watching and interacting from the same device as yourself.
