If you’ve heard a lot about Mindfulness but don’t know what it is, then why not come along to these Easter taster sessions at Zenyoga for only £5 per session.

 

There is an emerging body of research that indicates that mindfulness can help our children improve their abilities to pay attention, to calm down when they are upset, and to make better decisions. In short, it helps with emotional regulation and cognitive focus. It can also be great fun.

Sessions will include some movement, bunny breathing and a mindful Easter egg listening exercise.

“Our little man “C” was born in a hurry on Thursday. We used what we learned in your class to stay at home for as long as possible, so we got to the hospital with 10 mins to spare! So thank you ….  I’d just like to add my thanks, the birthing ball positions and breathing exercises were a massive help for us while “D” went through contractions at home…  D & B, Nov 2016

” I’m super thankful for all your advice and for the muslin cloth sprinkled with essential oils and kept in the freezer – I loved it! My midwives too! It brought so much relief. And your breathing techniques and yoga routine helped me dilate to 7cm at home. So again, many many thanks!!!…” A & J, Nov 2016

 


Spring Yin and Yang Workshop

Sarah Fretwell - 29th April workshop

Saturday 29th April 2017  ~ 12-2 pm

Come and join me for a playful afternoon of yoga at the beautiful Zen Yoga studio in Camberwell @ 12-2 pm on Saturday 29 April.

Whether you are new to yoga or have been practising for years, this Spring workshop will help you find a balance between YIN and YANG – our feminine and soft, and active and masculine forces.

Starting with a fluid and dynamic YANG flow, to connect with body, breath and mind, with opportunities to play with arm balances and inversions if you wish. Moving into slow and soothing YIN, to soften and lengthen tight muscles and settle the mind and nervous system. During the workshop I will be offering useful tips and expert guidance to help you become more confident in different yoga poses, and to increase your strength and flexibility.

Be prepared to sweat at times before floating off into pure bliss.

Suitable for all levels including beginners.

Coconut Water and homemade treats included.

The workshop is £25.00, please contact me at hello@lumayoga.co.uk to book and pay for your space and click “attending” on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/616670678538884

Re-birthing Breathwork With Gong

Rebirthing with Gongs
Saturday 29th April 2017 (3 – 6 pm)
Rebirthing Breathwork with Gong is a 3 hour workshop developed two years ago by Purnima in a work partnership with Brazilian Sound Therapist Susan Manjula. 

Brought to the UK in 2017, this project is an initiative of Rebirthing Club of London and SonicSoul, and aims to offer a new wave of Conscious Breath Therapy and Sound Therapy in group sessions.

Rebirthing – Conscious Breathing is a breathwork therapy that can revitalise and rejuvenate the body, refresh the mind, delight the soul, and enliven our actions and relationships.

The Gong is a musical percussion instrument of ancient origins used in Sound Therapy. Known as the sound of total resonance, the gong is played with the intention of bringing people into a state of harmony. Its frequencies and resonance can quieten the mind, relax the physical body, release emotional blockages, and cleanse the energetic field.

Together, these two terapies, potentialise the benefits of a session. The Rebirthing promotes an expansion and the Gongs helps to dissolve resistance./span>

The session starts at 3pm. Please arrive 5 minutes before. Thank you.

The workshop includes:
-An induction section where you learn the breathing technique of Rebirthing Breathwork, and are introduced to the sounds of the gong.

-A 90 minutes practice section. You lay down on a comfortable mat ready to begin practice. In the beginning of the session, the Rebirthing Breathwork is accompanied by recorded music. The gong will come in at a specific point in the practice, when most resistance is met.

-A sharing and feedback section with snacks and a cup of tea.

Pregnant?

Want to increase your chances of having a positive Birthing experience?

Curious about Doulas?

Our “Meet the Doulas” open event will give pregnant women and their partners a chance to learn more about services and to connect with several doulas through short one on one interviews.

We like to think of these events as “speed dating for doulas” as each expecting couple will have a chance to meet with doulas of varying experience levels throughout the event.

So come & join us on Saturday 6th May – We look forward to seeing you there!

For those unfamiliar a doula is a trained professional who provides emotional, physical and informative support to women throughout pregnancy, birth and the postnatal period. We can help with giving you the tools to achieve comfort during labour, information on all your options, breastfeeding advice, emotional support and so much more.
In attendance will be several doulas each with their own unique birthing experience, however we all have the same belief that every woman should receive continuous supportive care and that’s what we aim to provide.
For any questions and to RSVP email Leata at Leata@HolisticDoulaServices.Com or call 07729370458
