Wellbeing at Middle Temple

Middle Temple is fully committed to the “Wellbeing at the Bar” programme and following on from our successful Wellbeing Event in partnership with the South Eastern Circuit in July, as mentioned by Valerie Charbit in the August blog,  the Inn continues  to develop its Wellbeing programme with a number of new initiatives for the Michaelmas Term.

On Mondays from 08:00 to 09:00 we are hosting readings from the ancient Sanskrit text the Bhagavad Gita in Taskers (Middle Temple Common Room). These readings have been both well attended and well received.

Starting on 8th October 2018 from 18:30 to 19:30 Taskers will also be the venue for a fortnightly trial of Pilates at a cost of £10 per session. The trial will last until the end of Michaelmas term.

The next session of the “Survive and Thrive” series will take place on 17 October at 17:30 and is entitled “Understanding Body Language and how to create the ‘Golden Halo’ effect”. To register your interest for this event (which is free to Middle Templars) please email “
