Sophrology - the new mindfulness

A stress management technique that combines meditation, breathing and relaxation techniques with gentle movement and visualisation. It doesn’t require complicated postures or large amounts of time.

Example of a sophrology exercise

Close your eyes, breathe in, and hold your breath for a few seconds while tensing up all the muscles in your body. Then, as you exhale, release all the muscles and let go, allowing the body and mind to slow down

Sophrology is rooted in science

It was developed in Spain in 1960 by neuropsychiatrist Prof Alfonso Caycedo. It sits at the crossroads between western relaxation and eastern meditation, as a result of the struggle to find the best way to enable people to better manage stress, fear, anxiety.
