Gentle Mindful Movement


A safe, calming space for you to reconnect to your body, breath and heart centre through gentle movements, mindfulness practices, relaxation and soft healing music.

We come together to share and cultivate being present, grounded, peaceful and calm.

These specific classes will hold sacred the personal effects that major life changes trauma, stress, depression and anxiety has on each individual and will be lovingly adapted to meet you and your needs. This is a dementia friendly class and carers/ family members are welcome to join.

COST: will be £8 a session payable in 6-weekly blocks. We will have 2 concessionary spaces (£4 a session) so let us know if you’d like to apply for that.

HOW TO BOOK: Please Nicola Beardsworth on 07949 912540 or email beardsworth72@hotmail.co.uk to book.

ABOUT NICKY: “For many years I suffered with the agonising effects of trauma, loss, anxiety and depression. It was a coming together of two questions I read when browsing through a book;
1. How much love are you giving and receiving?
2. How are you being of service?
combined with life’s synchronicities that I found myself attending a Tai Chi/Chi kung demo in Wales. The grace, presence , love and connection I experienced through these simple flowing body movements touched me profoundly and I discovered a way to make friends with my suffering and begin to heal and live a meaningful life.

I went on to qualify as a Homeopath and Infinite Tai Chi/Chi kung practitioner and have been supporting and facilitating others for over 16yrs in settings including: hospices, rehab centres, schools, hospitals, support groups, retirement homes, at celebrations/retreats/ceremonies, gyms and clubs with people from all walks of life, all ages levels and abilities. I feel privileged to witness the amazing benefits of this healing practice”.

WHAT TO EXPECT: The class is held in a peaceful space dedicated to meditation and promoting compassion, located in the beautiful surroundings of Lancaster Castle. You will be in a small group with a friendly teacher who will greet you and help put you at ease. There is no pressure to talk or share any information about yourself. You can choose to lie down, remain seated or stand through the session depending on your needs. This is a dementia friendly class.

LOCATION: The Tara Centre is in The Storey and our entrance is at the back of the building on Castle Park, directly opposite the Castle entrance. You will see a big red heart in the window. That’s us. Please just knock on the window.

ACCESSIBILITY: There is a slight incline coming up to the back door, with a few cobblestones. The centre itself is wheelchair accessible and there are accessible toilets on the same floor. For more detailed information on access, please get in touch with Elham at the Tara Centre on 07830107008.
