Chakra Balancing Workshop with Sam

Saturday August 13th , 11am-1pm, £20

You are invited to join this Chakra Balancing Workshop, where we will explore the Chakra system from its roots in ancient Hindu and Buddhist scriptures, to its utility and relevance for modern life.
In this workshop, we will learn about the main 7 chakras of the body and explore how a well balanced chakra system can support us to live with greater ease, contentment and joy in our lives. We will explore the history and evolution of the chakra system from ancient roots in the Vedic texts to the 7 chakra system, depicted by the colours of the rainbow that we see today. We will learn about the qualities of each individual chakra and the importance of creating balance throughout the system.

The workshop will combine learning and discussions with embodied practices that support us to integrate what we learn. We will explore each chakra, starting with the root chakra and working up to the crown, learning the qualities of each and engaging in practices that help bring them into balance.

The workshop will include the following key elements:
Learning about the chakra system including origins and evolution
Exploration of each chakra, including practices to bring them into balance
Yoga poses and sequences that balance particular chakras
Chakra based meditations and visualisations

Stories, poetry and group discussion and exploration

Immersive Soundbath with Christian

SATURDAY, AUGUST 27 7.30-8.30pm

An immersive and deeply restorative ‘Sound Bath’ relaxation experience, to gently lull you into a state of peace, calm and tranquillity

THE SOUND BATH RELAXATION:

Deep relaxation is a vital part of looking after your health and wellbeing, which can assist with personal growth and healing, as well as guiding you on a journey of deeper discovery of self. It allows our bodies the time to rest and rejuvenate. Using guided meditation alongside the therapeutic sounds as a means of deep relaxation is an excellent way to help relax, rebalance and restore the mind and physical body.

Sound can be a powerful & energising means of relaxation. The frequency, vibration and resonance of the sounds support and assist you, right down to a cellular level, to bring about balance and harmony to your physical body and energetic fields, calming the mind and inducing deep relaxation.

During the sessions, the Himalayan Singing Bowls are gently played, along with other therapeutic instruments such as Crystal Singing Bowls, Hand Pan, Native Flutes, Shamanic Drum and Didgeridoo to bathe you in the deeply healing and restorative sounds.

YOUR INVITATION:

All are welcome, sessions are informal and light hearted, with no special skills or previous experience necessary. Just bring a smile and allow the captivating sounds to work, like a ‘sonic massage’ for the physical self, as you allow yourself the time and space to just be.

Please bring a yoga mat / blanket / pillow for your comfort. (We do have some spare mats at sessions if you need to borrow them).

Wear warm comfortable clothing and you may also like to bring a bottle of water to drink

Prompt start at 7:30pm (Please arrive 10-15 minutes earlier)

The Pelvic floor an Integrated Approach

NEW DATE TBC

Our Pelvic floor should resemble a taught trampoline but unfortunately very often our pelvic floor more often resembles a slack hammock! Pelvic floor problems are very common but rarely discussed or taught properly unless you have access to a pelvic floor specialist While clinical Pilates classes are a wonderful help, it is not enough as we also need to learn how to isolate the pelvic floor and learn the specialist exercises

In the seminar you will learn how to exercise the pelvic floor correctly but also equally importantly how to relax it.

Tango classes and workshops with Benjamin

New date tbc please register your interest

Originally from Argentina, Benjamin have been dancing and teaching for longer than 15 years. Based upon his knowledge of body biomechanics, the analysis of tango partner’s movements and the rhythms in the execution of tango steps, he developed his own teaching approach. It aims to deliver a clear, direct and unique tailor made learning experience to each of his students.

Having studied in prestigious art schools and universities in Argentine and Brazil, the multi-faceted artists built a solid carrier in the performance arts. For instant, Tango, Contemporary Dance, Argentine Folklore, etc., are part of his portfolio. Benjamin have teached and performed tango in many countries, e.g. Japan, Ireland, Germany, England, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, Argentine, etc.

His passion for tango was the trigger to create the “Charme Tango” dance company in Brazil and the “Tango Club UK”. Naturally, an international tango community was born, as an umbrella that holds several cultural and pedagogical projects led by Benjamin.

About the classes:

In this class we will study about expressing the tango musicality and emotions through organic movements and creative structures.

The tango class cover a range of techniques and knowledge of the movement of both bodies in the couple to develop fundamental skills, like balance, poise, dynamics management and precise coordination
