CIPD Festival of Work is back in London with a new experience - now bigger and better than ever, free all under one roof!
Now more than ever, wellbeing is high on everybody’s agenda – and attending big events can be a bit of a shock to the system. Being able to take time out to reflect on what you’re learning, or simply to relax, is really important – which is why the Wellbeing Village is here for you!
Sessions are held at regular periods throughout the day to make them easy to fit into your packed schedule. Physical sessions include Massage and Yoga, or you can give your mental health a boost with Breathwork, Mindfulness / Meditation, or even BorrowMyDoggy.

Jenna Robins BSc (Hons), wellbeing coach, has developed this simple 6 minute method for people who have little time but want results to feel and perform better every day and combat stress. The session involves the ancient Chinese practice of Qigong which uses exercises to optimise energy within the body, mind, and spirit, with the goal of improving and maintaining health and well-being. The synchronisation or movement following a smooth controlled breath with focused mindfulness actually creates physical changes to hormones and brain chemistry and neural networks and brain function. Little and often practice creates powerful changes.
