3 yoga classes
Yoga means union of mind, body and soul, strengthening, relaxing and encouraging energy flow to promote health and well-being. Yoga was originally intended to prepare the body for meditation and be a form of active meditation, allowing the chatter of the mind to rest by focusing on the breath and the yoga postures. Delivered by a fantastic qualified, experienced and beautifully spiritual yoga teacher, our healing yoga classes will combine Hatha and other forms of yoga, for an enjoyable general yoga suitable for all abilities. Each movement and position, can be adapted for any level and ability.
Your choice of a 1 to 1 holistic healing massage or reiki therapy
During these heart opening, spiritual and healing therapies, your holistic healer brings together nature, body awareness and energy. Nourishing your mind, body and soul, using organic oils, and either massage or Reiki to leave you re-balanced and realigned with these wonderful, transformational treatments bespoke for your needs.
An Interactive Cookery Demonstration
A holistic cookery session offering tools and tips towards physical and emotional well-being through foods that are nutritionally, and energetically, balanced. This includes lots of vegetables and grains, vegetable protein and an emphasis on eating seasonal organic produce; healthy, high fibre, unprocessed, and nutritious, whilst still being very delicious! The session will be delivered with lots of opportunity for tasting and participation.
A Gong Therapy Session
Feel the deep relaxation and stress relieving effects of a therapeutic Sound Bath. Using Shamanic drums, Tibetan Singing Bowls, Crystal Singing Bowls, Gongs, Chimes and other instruments rich harmonic frequencies, you will lie, swaddled in blankets, feeling the stresses and strains melting away as peace and harmony flow through you, via the binaural beats and tones which are played simultaneously. As wel as the soothing affect, the sound vibrations work in a similar way to reiki, balancing the chakra's or energy points in your body. Studies show these sounds can reduce anxiety, boost mood states and reduce blood pressure, as well as enhance sleep and memory.
An Introduction to Contemporary Shamanic Healing Practices'
Something a little different, but a fascinating area of natural healing. Shamanism is a spiritual practice found in cultures around the world from ancient times up to the present day. Nowadays, in non-indigenous cultures, shamanism is studied and practiced as a life path. Just as in ancient times, contemporary people consult with modern day shamanic practitioners for practical and pragmatic solutions to problems in everyday life-from personal illness, professional challenges, or family discord to ancestral issues. Individuals may seek shamanic healing for many different reasons. Healing is typically part of a multidisciplinary approach along with physical healers, natural medicines, changes in diet, and other therapies.
Shamanistic perspective on individual disease is that any illness may have a significant underlying spiritual or energetic issue, regardless of how it manifests - physical, mental, emotional, spiritual or relational. The sense that something is "missing" or that "I haven't been the same since..." can often be indicative of an energetic loss of some type. Certain illnesses are more likely to have a spiritual component that may respond to shamanic healing. These include psychological diagnoses like depression and anxiety, ADD/ADHD and addictions.
An interesting and eye opening session.
