Feedback from our courses:

“Thank you!  Today has been insightful, informative and well delivered.  I have really enjoyed it and will definitely be taking some of the practices and learning away to try out and share with my team.” 

“Really good course – plenty of new information which was practical and can be related to improving life in the workplace and at home.''

“I loved this course!  I’ve dabbled with wellbeing techniques and mindfulness before but learnt new ones such as 5 Finger Focus and 10-0
Countdown.  Loved the ladies doing the session.  It was informative, funny and useful tips to take into the future.  Also, you made it very comfortable to talk out loud.”

“Really enjoyed today – particularly the practical breathing and body scan etc.  I will find this really helpful.  Really engaging trainers.”

Yoga retreat in Spain - October 23

In October 2023, the HealthPad team ran our first yoga and well-being retreat abroad.

From 6th to the 11th October in Torrevieja, near Alicante, our 9 group participants attended yoga sessions focussed on alignment, posture, stretching, deep relaxation and guided visualisation - in addition to practice of many of the classically known yoga postures.


The group contained some relative beginners as well as some more experienced yoga practitioners, with an age group from those in their early twenties to mid-sixties.


Situated in a quiet hotel, with access to a pool, and a large roof terrace where most of the sessions were held, we all enjoyed the benefits of outside yoga practice in warm sunshine – especially in October!

The sessions were led by HealthPad directors, Jo and Judith – both qualified and experienced yoga teachers.


One of our youngest group members, Harry fed back to us ‘I’m new to yoga, but I loved this. I know I’m physically fit, but I realised how much I benefited from stretching. It showed me how stiff I was, and I didn’t even know it! This has definitely inspired me to find out about regular yoga classes when I’m back home.’

St Austell, Cornwall - November 21

The HealthPad team running a 1 day bespoke training course for Cornwall Housing staff in St Austell.

Judith Hasell led some events for children in the Luxulyan Valley in Cornwall – these sessions were made possible by funding from Great Western Railway Company and Community Fund, and implemented by the Luxulyan Valley Partnership.

These walks in the woods were linked to a book that Judith wrote to help children manage anxiety and stress, and to support them in creating resilience, emotional regulation and improved social communication.

The book 'JJ's Journey into the Wise Wood' tells the story of a child - JJ - who at the beginning of the book feels anxious and unhappy. JJ is helped by a little bee and a number of woodland creatures, who demonstrate ways to feel calmer, more positive and happy.
Through these strategies and exercises JJ understands how to manage difficult feelings, and to connect with others who can offer understanding and support. These walks in the woods offered children and the adults accompanying them opportunities to connect more with the natural world and to develop greater awareness of the healing potential within the natural environment.
In addition to the exercises outlined in the book, we created artwork from materials provided, and also from the space around us, so that children could take away lasting memories of their time with JJ;
If you would like to receive more information about these sessions, or have us create a similar event for your organisation or school, you can get in touch with us by emailing
