It’s important to be able to say ‘Yes’.

Saying ‘yes’ to opportunities and possibilities opens things up, brings you in contact with new experiences and broadens your options.

But sometimes we say ‘no’ without realising we are doing it. It can become a habit, the safer route. The ‘Yes’ Workshop practices the art of saying Yes, so that when we want to take hold of that chance, we have the confidence and the awareness to do so.

It’s also about shaking things up, trying things out and having fun!
