Free mindfulness workshops to beat the January blues in Croydon

Centrale & Whitgift Shopping Centre in Croydon is producing a ‘Wellness Weekend’; of FREE activities, encouraging families to start 2024 by taking a moment to unwind and celebrate who they are.
The weekend aims to introduce the values of mindfulness to children and to explore the practice of being kind to yourself through an array of workshops running between 11am-5pm on Saturday 27th – Sunday 28th January.

Both days will be kick-started with free Family Yoga Have-a-Go Sessions hosted by Natty Little Yogis. This interactive workshop encourages participants of all ages to feel mentally and physically stronger through simple yoga movements so come along and have a go with your little one!

Adding to the excitement, all visitors are invited to unleash their artistry in hands-on creative workshops including free Bath Bomb Making and free Pottery Painting, all led by Cult Milk. These activities aim to alleviate stress and help people unwind, while making some wonderful creations to be taken home.

If you’re feeling lucky, have a go at the Spin-to-Win Wheel which is available to play throughout the day. You can win anything from a positive affirmation to prizes from stores in the centres.

But that’s not all! Free drop-in appointments will run alongside the workshops. Expert masseurs are lending a hand to help relieve tension through the choice of either a head and shoulder massage or hand massage. Also, a pop-up nail bar offers the chance for a bespoke manicure to match your personal style.
