WORKSHOPS & COURSES
Friday 29 November | 7.30pm to 8.45pm | £20
Join sound therapist Chai Francesco for a very special and very blissful evening of relaxation as you bathe in the sublimely healing tones of crystal singing bowls and the oriental gong. The resonance of these instruments is tangible, making it not just an auditory experience but also like receiving a sound massage!
Throughout the ages, sound has been used to heal, strengthen and soothe. During a sound bath, most people experience a wonderful feeling of relaxation, and you can expect to leave the session feeling balanced, restored and ready to enjoy the weekend ahead.

Rest & Rebalance: A Yoga Workshop For Deep Relaxation
Saturday 30 November | 2.00pm to 4.00pm | £25
In this workshop led by Paula Hines we will incorporate restorative yoga to practise the art of relaxation through breath awareness, mindfulness, and yoga nidra to facilitate deep rest.
Restorative yoga is a gentle, quiet practice using props such as bolsters, blankets, blocks, chairs and straps to support the body in mostly supine and seated postures for deep relaxation. It is known that restorative yoga can activate the parasympathetic nervous system (the part of our autonomic nervous system responsible for our ‘rest and digest’ activities). So, this practice is ideal for anyone looking to slow down, and can be especially beneficial when in a state of feeling ‘tired all the time’. In restorative yoga we rest in each posture for an extended period of time (between 5 and 20 minutes) to allow both body and mind to let go of tension.
We will close our workshop with a calming Yoga Nidra (‘Yogic Sleep’ – yogic sleep – a form of guided meditation practiced lying down that will bring you to the edge of sleep).
Come along for some well-deserved renewal as you allow yourself to be rather than do.This workshop is open to all levels. No yoga experience required.
