Wellness for Creatives - Workshop Series

Wellness for Creatives - Workshop Series

May 22, 2019 6pm



Leisa Bellmore from the Toronto Western Hospital's Artists' Health Centre leads our first workshop on wellness and self-care for musicians and creators alike.

Most of us know the importance of staying mentally and physically fit with the daily demands that are placed on us but few of us have the tools and strategies to help us get there. These workshops are designed to give participants a good overview of specific topics along with techniques and simple training. Participants will leave with takeaway materials for future reference and practice.

This is an experiential workshop that is part discussion and part demonstration of techniques that will guide participants through using them. We will focus on a variety of effective strategies, including breathing exercises, stretching, mindfulness practices, self-shiatsu and acupressure.

You'll learn about.

  • short term and long term effects of stress
  • beneficial effects of stress

  • solutions for living well with stress
  • simple, effective strategies that can fit into your daily routine
