‘Awakening to Spring’

At Horam Manor Farm, Horam East Sussex, TN210JB

10.00am  to 5.00pm; £75/70 (early bird booking before 1st March £70/65)

Life can move quickly……When was the last time your really truly stopped? When was the last time you were so still, so quiet and peaceful you felt that nothing else mattered apart  from staying connected to each sacred moment, feeling very alive and connected to everything? Senses alive,  breath, taste, smell, hearing …sensitive, awake and free?

Join me for a nourishing day of yoga, meditation, pranayama, deep resting, connecting with nature and delicious organic vegetarian food, lovingly prepared by the wonderful Sharon Smith.  

The retreat is open to anyone, beginners are welcome. The style of yoga encourages you to move at your own pace with awareness without pushing or forcing your body. This day will be lovingly held and a safe, relaxing day for you to experience a wonderful sense of stillness. 

Dust off your winter coat and awaken your body, mind and soul with a rejuvenating retreat reconnecting with nature, your own true nature, finding balance, tranquility, inner peace, inspiration and joy.

Yoga Therapy Workshop

‘The Lumbar Spine’
March 22nd 10am to 1.00pm; Cost £35
at Revitalise,
 123 A Western Rd, Brighton BN3 1DB

A workshop for Yoga teachers, Yoga teacher trainers, those working with the body such as massage therapists, Pilates and movement teachers and also anyone who wishes to understand Yoga, the lumbar spine and pathologies from a holistic perspective. 

The workshop will offer a combination of theoretical anatomical knowledge, yoga practice, adjustments, exploration of the spine in relation to self and other (i.e. yours, your students, patients, clients etc), combining over 20 years of my knowledge from Physiotherapy, Ayurveda, Healing work and Yoga practice. 

This informal workshop will also be a supportive space and an opportunity to ask those questions that you may be wondering when working with people with spinal pathologies….’acute facet joint irritation…what should I or my student avoid, what are the signs and symptoms, what can I recommend?’…….

Gain the confidence to support people with more understanding of their specific needs

A really helpful workshop if you support people with movement practices.  

“Teaching is not an imposition of the teacher’s will over that of the pupil, not at all. Teaching starts with freedom and ends with freedom.”

  • Deepening our connection to gravity, breath, awareness and the spine, exploring the bandhas and 'Maha bandha' with more depth. Establishing our ‘baseline rhythm, what does you day/week look like when you are in balance with your bnody, mind and soul?.
  • Unravelling the fascial system in more depth. We learnt the basics in the first course now lets explore working with and through this amazing network of tissue. We will be bringing a focus on the psoas muscle' the deep front line and its relationship to our body, emotions, mind and soul.
  • Cultivating emotional resilience and HeartMath meditation; Amazing experiential talk with Dr John Simmons. Learn how to manage, reduce and eliminate stress and anxiety from your being with practical effective techniques.
  • Discover how to be present and work with what thoughts and feelings arise in yourself using inner tracking techniques to help cultivate insight, wisdom and intuition
  • Exploring the ‘core muscles’ in our yoga practice and working with them in a wise integrated way. Understand how to work with the core in a 'whole way' rather than working with isolated muscles.
  • Inspiring nutritional talk with Tanya Borowski, Nutritionist and Functional Medicine practitioner. Learn the facts on how to eat for optimal health and well being, why certain eating habits can lead us towards illness and disease and how positive, good habits lead us towards optimal vitality.
  • Opening the Heart; back bending postures and Metta meditations for awakening loving kindness. We can work on our physical body to release the emotional body and vice versa leading to freedom, lightness and deep profound connections to self and all things.
  • Connecting and communicating within the whole self through asansa, pranayama, energy flow and wise speech. 
  • Inversions; the upside-down world, energizing postures and going beyond the fear and doubt. How are your headstands?..... a joy or a fear. We will explore teh preperations of these poses and see what emerges. 
  • Awakening our innate passion and power, learning to trust our innate body wisdom and moving through our limitations. When we cultivate our inner strength we learn to trust ourselves more fully, in our bodies, in life and the choices we make. 
  • Developing our intuitive sensitive movement, connecting to our higher self, and learning how to truly ‘be’ in the body. Healing happens when the body, mind, heart and soul come together.
