Welcome to our on-line classes

“These classes were developed generically (not specifically for anyone affected by a medical condition); therefore if you have (or have had ) a cancer diagnosis or any other long term medical condition, we strongly advise you to check with your doctor or nurse that the session is appropriate before you start.”

In the first instance the Bracken Trust nurses are happy  to have a  discussion with you. They can be contacted between 9-5 Monday to Friday on 01597 823646 or via email: nurse@brackentrust.org.uk

The Trust usually charges £3 per person for a group activity class when they are run at the Centre or at one of its hubs.

These are being provided ‘free of charge’; however if you would like to make a donation, please send us a cheque or use the Local Giving or Just Giving websites.

Many thanks

Focus Relaxation
10 Minute Meditation Video

“This is a 10-minute meditation focusing on the body and breath – to help you relax and feel more ‘grounded’.

Find a quiet place to sit, where you won’t be disturbed or interrupted. Try to have a fairly upright back – supported and comfortable, and place your feet flat on the floor.

Allow yourself to be guided in this meditation, don’t worry if your mind gets distracted – that’s what it does! Each time this happens, just notice with kindness, and simply bring it back to focusing on the meditation again. I hope you find it useful…”
