Is Sophrology The New Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a term that has been thrown around for the past few years. While some are well-equipped to meditate for ten minutes a day in a bid to be more present, others struggle to employ rigorous self-control after a long day at the office and a yoga class feels more like 60 minutes of torture rather than much-needed relaxation. For the latter, there is a new approach making waves in the UK and it’s called Sophrology.
While Sophrology might be relatively new to the UK, it has been around for years and is popular across the continent. For some, the mix of visualisation, positive thinking and breathing techniques might still feel a bit too similar to mindfulness practices, but if you’re au fait with a yoga class but haven’t quite mastered the art of meditating this could be worth looking into.
