Following the success of her outdoor yoga and meditation classes, Millie Broome of Annesley is bringing back more relaxation sessions to help ease the troubled spirits of the people of Mansfield and Ashfield after Christmas.
Millie, who created her meditation classes out of the mud, will lead more classes, indoors during the colder months, starting Thursday, January 6, 2022.
The 21-year-old is passionate about teaching yoga and meditation after they helped her through her own difficult times suffering from anxiety.
Millie, who is social media manager for a global company, found that meditation “significantly” helped her relax and wanted to share its benefits.

Graduated as a meditation teacher and with 200 hours of yoga teaching, Millie said she wanted to “share the incredible benefits” for mental health, to help “others on their journey.”
She said: “The outdoor sessions were a success, during the warmer months we will be practicing in nature which will be nice, but for now we have the comfort of a warm and cozy room. overlooking the [Kings Mill] tank.
“Yoga is more than just a physical practice or as others say ‘just stretching.’ I teach with my heart and I bring mindfulness into movement. We work with the breath, and though the practice is physical, it is aimed at all levels, ages and abilities.
“Yoga has helped my mental health and my physical health tremendously. Now is the time for me to share this with others. Yoga can really help people reduce stress, anxiety, and depression.
“It’s about being attentive to movement. No matter what your ability, whether you’ve done yoga before or not, it’s for everyone. Its physical benefits include: improved flexibility, strength and mobility.
Online yoga student Zoe Mieck-Bettison said, “I have attended Millie’s classes online and in person for the past two months and loved every minute of it.
“She has a kind and caring nature which encouraged me to keep going. I don’t like the usual exercise! I feel like I have benefited physically and her meditation / yoga sessions are what I need after a busy day. I highly recommend her classes and look forward to her starting at Res’.
Phillip Hinds, a guided meditation student, said the reason he tried guided meditation was to help him cope with “an intensely stressful and painful time in my life.”
“It seemed to help, so I kept going and the more I practiced, the more it helped me, even in ways I never imagined,” he said.
“Millie’s sessions are relaxed and informal, she gently guides the small group, inspiring us to help each other, to know each other and to grow.
“One way or another, each participant takes what they need from that day’s practice and we all leave happier than when we arrived. Personally, I am now calmer, more rounded, self-aware, resilient and confident. I can let it go. I can enjoy life. I can be happy just to be me.
“The atmosphere is calm, peaceful and friendly. Arrive with an open mind, lose your preconceptions and reap the rewards! “
