The Rebellion of Self-Care, Korina Tsipoura

Looking after yourself is often the last thing on the agenda. Well we think it's time that changed and so does Korina. Let her supportive and calming course give you the information, motivation and techniques you need to put yourself first. It doesn't make you selfish, it just makes sense.

Why we love this course

The idea of self-care makes us grimace. It sounds nice in practice, we know that we probably should prioritise it more but we’re damned if we know exactly how to do it without cringing at ourselves via social media / feeling guilty / grimacing (again). 

The super calm, incredibly supportive and open hearted Korina Tsipoura wants to change that with her brand new group mentoring programme. As a qualified yoga teacher Korina knows how a little focused ‘me time’ can have a positive impact on the mind, body and – yep we’re going to say it – soul. Bringing her immense and varied experiences together in one place, Korina’s programme will help you to learn more about how your body and mind work together, influence each other and how simple techniques can make a big difference to the way you feel about yourself. It’s not self-indulgent, it’s survival. Especially after the year we’ve all just had.

Korina works with a small group of people to explore different aspects of movement and mindset to help you to feel more in control of your emotional and behavioural responses to the situations you are faced with in everyday life. Crucially, she’ll work with the group to help everyone create a sustainable practice (including things like breathwork, meditation, movement, journalling and  gratitude) that fits into whatever life they lead. 

Who knows, by the end of the course we might even be able to say the words ‘love’ and ‘ourselves’ in the same sentence without feeling queasy. If anyone can help us with that, it’s Korina.
