Rebirthing/Breathwork Therapy

bolha de sabA_£o

Purnima Bodywork brings the Rebirthing Club of London sessions back to Zen Yoga Studio!

First session Friday 27th April 2018, 14:30-17:30

Would you like to learn more about yourself?

Have you noticed that each emotion has a singular rhythm?

Rebirthing/Breathwork Therapy is a defined breath technique, that gently and consciously releases memories/stress, creating space for changes in your life. It reveals our inner wisdom that help us to improve our quality of life.

Rebirthing is completely safe! Everything that emerges in a Rebirthing session was experienced before and held inside by suppressing your breath. Doing Rebirthing you get the chance to release them and get your freedom.

The session:

– The facilitator will give to you an induction that teaches you, in details, how to do your session through out the five elements of Rebirthing:

1. Circular Breathing

2. Awareness

3. Acceptance

4. Integration

5. Relaxation

– You will be asked to lie down on a comfortable mat to perform your session.

– The whole process takes 90min in average. In totall we will be together during 3 hours.

What’s new at Rebirthing Club Sessions?

We are delivering basics sessions since 2012, where you perform your session lying down during whole experience.

Next 27th, basic session will happen as usual and Eye Contact session will be introduced for those who have enough Rebirthing practice for that.. Please, consult Purnima for eligibility and more details.

Who is this workshop for?

Introductory Vinyasa Flow and Yoga Nidra Workshop by The City Lotus


Claudia Spurio is still training to be a Yoga Teacher, but not for much longer! She is now offering an introductory two hours Yoga Workshop at the special cost of only £10.

This introductory workshop will consist of a 60 mins Vinyasa Flow class, followed by some relaxing Yoga Nidra, and a lovely cup of herbal tea together to set you up for the weekend.

If this sounds good to you, please SIGN UP!

During Claudia’s Vinyasa Flow class, we will move fluidly through various asanas whilst linking breath to movement. This a great workout for all levels and you will eventually feel like you are in a moving meditation.
Yoga Nidra, on the other hand, is an actual form of meditation, also known as “Yogic Sleep”, which helps reduce chronic tension in the body and mind, giving you access to your subconscious. This will feel like a holiday for the mind, as you will be suspending rational thought processes for the duration of the practice. And who doesn’t like a holiday?

Mandala Vinyasa Journey Through the Elements: Air – Spine, Shoulders and Hips


Based on the elements in the Mayan calendar, join Sarah on a Mandala Vinyasa journey through the element of Air!

This workshop is designed to strengthen and free all those muscles that have been strained, shortened and tightened after all those years of sitting on chairs or sofas for long periods, running or cycling, and simply not moving the way you were designed to move.

In Mandala yoga we move 360 degrees around our mats, using our breath to carry us through each asana. The pace is slow, the practise is strong. Modifications and options for each pose are offered and every level of practitioner is welcome!

On an air day, based on the Mayan calendar, we focus on opening the shoulders, strengthening the quads to allow us to go deeper and more safely into backbends and heart openers. We will stimulate the Anahata chakra, our heart centre, leaving you feeling open to possibility, abundant and energised. We will also go deep into the quads, shoulders, hamstrings and hips in our yin practise at the end, to balance the element of air and provide grounding with the Earth and Water elements.

Props will be provided for the yin yoga to allow us to go deep into the connective tissue and soften into the poses.

This 2 hour session will start and end with yin yoga to compliment the subtle and physical body that we will be working on the day. ALL levels of practitioners are welcome.

Tickets are £30 (this includes the eventbrite charge). Book here:

*Post-yoga delicious healthy treats provided!

SOUND THERAPY WITH GONGS and Cosmos Gateway Alignment with the CHAKRA TUNING PIPES

logo joanne


STARTS 21st April 2018 for 7 WEEKS

We are pleased to say that Joh will be re-running the 7 week Chakra Balancing series due to its popularity.  You may like to do the whole course or just book onto what draws your interest the most or dates that suit you best.

She will be drawing on and harnessing particular frequencies with sound intention, colour, visualization and meditation to bring each chakra back into a greater state of equilibrium, balance and harmony.  Sound Therapy triggers your own self-healing capacity and all you ultimately need to do is relax and listen.

Although the Gong will be the primary instrument, other therapeutic sound healing tools will be used including Tuning Pipes. These are hollowed out pipes that can be quite long in length.  The sound produced is tuned to very specific notes and frequencies and have a targeted balancing effect.

Joh will be working with the chakra tuning pipes for the next 7 weeks starting from the ROOT chakra up.  There are 7 Pipes and they are based on the mathematical rotation of the planets around the Sun. These pipes are NOT based on a musical scale.

They work more on the cosmic energy of our chakras – the subtle body or  non-physical energetic body. They also work on pathways and other gateways of energy that links more to our multi-dimensional selves where the unconscious meets the conscious.

Session one, 21st April 2018 – 7.30 pm
ROOT CHAKRA – security and survival

Session two, 5th May 2018,  7.30 pm
SACRAL – physical and material desires; creativity, sexuality, relationships

Session three, 19th May 2018, 7.30 pm
SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRAS – will power and control

Session four, 2nd June 2018, 7.30 pm

Session five – 16th June 2018, 7.30 pm
THROAT CHAKRA – communication and expression

Session six –  30th June 2018, 7.30 pm

`Joh’s classes have been eye opening. I had not experienced sound healing before but I have been astonished by how powerful it can be, how my body has responded and how my mind cleared. I have loved attending the chakra based sessions, how they have built on each other, each one with a clear intention. Joh has a natural warm, intuitive and engaging style. A fabulous, unique experience’. Sally

`I recently attended one of Joh’s Gong baths to help with my fibromyalgia and I was surprised to say the least.  I felt my muscle aches disappear and felt so relaxed that I fell asleep.  The vibrations are very powerful and you can’t help but clear your mind and take it all in.  An excellent session with a great sound healer.  Well recommended’ Lee

Leave your doubts at the door and immerse yourself in the process.  Let it carry you and trust the outcome.  It’s all about intention’. Debby

`My sound healing experience was unexpectedly wonderful.  Joh worked her magic and the beautiful sounds she created soothed and balanced my body and mind.  My lower back pain has eased and my stress levels calmed.  It was an amazing experience that I would highly recommend’. Ylu

You have to experience this to truly understand the shift that gong therapy gives you. Joh works in a intuitive way with sound that reaches the core of you.” Daisy

About Joh Johnson

Joh is a Sound healing therapist and author.  Her introduction into the world of Sound healing came after training and qualifying in other therapies including Cognitive Hypnotherapy, EFT, Theta Healing and Massage.  Joh has been a Reiki Master for more than 20 yrs.

Joh uses mostly the Symphonic Gong as its carries the widest range of tones, frequencies and harmonics to facilitate a healing response.  The tones will vibrate the cells of the body, and where there is a lack of `harmony’ or discordance in the body, the Gong will support and bring greater equilibrium to the body.  The experience allows you to become cocooned and wrapped in an envelope of nurturing energy where nothing else exists except the sounds.  In this relaxed, elevated and meditative state, the mental, emotional and physical body becomes super conducting and super regenerative, where a triggered self-healing response can take place more readily.

Joh also works with the less familiar Tuning Pipes which are the same as tuning forks but louder and more resonant for longer.  They play single notes that target and interact more specifically with particular energy spots bringing about major positive shifts in the energetic patterns within and surrounding the human body.

The frequencies generated can help shift stuck energy blocks quickly and effectively.  The sound is pure and will quickly move you into a space of lightness as it re-attunes, re-aligns you, moving you into a greater state of harmony.


YOGA NIDRA ‘Journey through the chakras’


6th May 2018 ~ 7.30pm

The term ‘Chakra’ was first found in Tantric texts as referring to a point where two or more energy lines (nadis) intersect. There are roughly 72000 nadis in the human body and therefore many chakras, however the major and largest intersections are located along our spinal chord. When such energy centres are clogged, not purified and poorly maintained, we can experience disturbs in our health and personality, as well as distortion in the way we experience the world around us.
You will learn the physical, mental and emotional correspondence of each chakra and simple techniques to cleanse and harmonise these major energy centres.

Booking and Further Information

Drop in £15 per session subject to availability. The use of mat is included but you can bring your own if you have one, a blanket to keep your body warm as you relax, a small pillow and a bottle of water.
