Friday 30th August 7.15pm – 8.45pm  

New Moon Meditation

Come and join Bekah on the evening of Friday 30th August 2019, under the Black Moon in Virgo for a meditation group to set intentions, heal and cleanse with the help of crystals.

There will be an intention setting mediation guided by Bekah. This Meditation will be specially created particular to the New Moon’s zodiac energies, which is Virgo. This sign is all about Dedication, Nurturing, Self Care, Patience, Perfection, & Practicality.

As New Moons can make emotions run high, the second meditation will be a thorough Chakra Cleanse, there will be no sound bath on this occasion as Maria is away but I would still like to guide guests through this cleansing meditation to help realign the self during these Black Moon shifts, so the price is a little cheaper than usual.

You will be leaving feeling relaxed and refreshed with your chosen crystal.

1.5hours £18 – There is no need to bring anything to this workshop.

 

Tuesday 20th August 7.15pm – 9.15pm FULL

Yin Yoga & Sound Bath

Unwind and recharge with the calming and nourishing fusion of Yin Yoga with Emma Epton accompanied by a live sound bath.

Yin Yoga is a restorative practice of slow, deep holds that promote flexibility and optimal joint health within the body. This also cultivates stillness in the mind which can have a profound transformative effect on our nervous system and mental and physical health.

This Yin practice will be accompanied by the beautiful gentle sounds of the alchemy crystal bowls led by Maria. The bowls create a harmonic space which will enable your yin practice to deepen and help you surrender to pure relaxation.

2 hours £24 – There is no need to bring anything along to this workshop. 

Tuesday 27th August 7.15pm – 8.45pm

Chakra Healing Circle & Sound Bath (Monthly)

Chakras are the energy centres within and around the human body. There are seven main Chakras that correspond to specific organs as well as physical, emotional, mental and spiritual states of being that influence all areas of your life – they contain pure healing energy, what yogis refer to as ‘Prana’ – this healing energy is all around us and within us, to keep us healthy, happy and vibrant. 

You can think of the Chakras as free flowing energy wheels or discs and ultimate wellness and harmony happens when they are aligned and open. There are conditions that can indicate blocked Charkas, as well as implications on being too open – as ever it is all about balance and intention.

The Chakras we will be focussing on each month are as follows:

May: Root, Jun: Sacral, Jul: Solar Plexus, Aug: Heart,  Sep: Throat,  Oct: Third Eye, Nov: Crown

Sue Quigley will give two guided meditations as well as practical information on that specific Chakra, you will then have the ultimate treat of a beautiful sound bath led by Maria Ryan.

1.5 hours £18 – Price includes a handout and crystal to take home with you. Held on the last Tuesday of every month.

Saturday 7th September 4pm – 5.30pm

Restorative Yoga & Sound Bath

Relax and restore during our restorative yoga and sound bath workshop with Chloe Tully and Maria Ryan.

Restorative yoga is a deeply nourishing, therapeutic and luxurious practice which focuses on rest, relaxation and recuperation.

When in a pose, the body is ‘held’ by props such as bolsters, blankets and blocks to allow the muscles to relax and let go and the mind to slow down. This class is very much for everyone and is gentle and adaptable.

To further enhance your restorative yoga practice Maria will sweep you away with the sound of the alchemy crystal singing bowls. A perfect class to unwind and help you regroup after a busy week and in preparation for a wonderful nights sleep.

1.5 hours £18 – There is no need to bring anything to this workshop. 

Crystal Sound Bath Workshop

Tuesday 3rd September 7.15pm – 8.30pm

Crystal Sound Bath

The Alchemy Crystal Bowls are made of 99.9% pure quartz crystal and infused with rare and precious metals. They create a harmonic sound, which envelopes you in a cocoon of comfort and relaxation.

Maria will give a short guided meditation and talk through the intention for the evening. You will then be swept away on a sound journey with the alchemy crystal singing bowls, quartz crystal pyramid and koshi chimes.

1hour 15minutes – £15

Sunday 1st September 1pm – 3pm

Bekah Sheppard

Owner of La Luna

Bekah has always been into crystals even from a little girl and was intrigued by their beauty and healing properties. Crystals are part of Earths earliest formations and have the most orderly structure to ever exist in nature, they respond to the inputs of all the different energies around them, leading them to oscillate and emit specific vibratory frequencies. This energy they emit is consistent due to them being one of the most orderly and stable forms of matter in the Universe. 

We are all made up of energies that are constantly changing based on our moods, behaviours and our surroundings or people we are surrounded by. Crystals also give off energy but because of their perfect structure and formation, their energy is constant, not changing like ours. Because of this, they can help us rebalance our own energies.

Bekah also runs a small shop called La Luna, situated at number 93 Mortimer Street in Herne Bay, opened in October 2016. The main aim of opening La Luna was to spread awareness on natural well-being, self healing and self development. 

Saskia Morris

Yoga Teacher

Saskia started practising yoga four years ago when she lived in Australia. She attended regular classes and fell in love with how it made her feel, both physically and mentally. Her philosophy to life is very much based around the concept of balance, and finds yoga and meditation to be a great way of maintaining this.

In 2017 Saskia set up ‘Body in Mind’, initially as a personal training business. Although Saskia enjoyed working as a PT, something was missing; so, in 2019, she decided to train as a yoga teacher in Greece. It was one of the most intense yet wonderful experiences she has ever had.

Since then, she has been teaching classes and private sessions, working with all ages as well as with people with disabilities, injuries and hearing impediments. She has hosted local events, taught at festivals and completed further training courses. She truly believes that yoga is open to anyone and everyone, and it is her aim to encourage more people to incorporate it into their lives as a way of nourishing mind, body and soul.

Carmen Fearnley

Nosewise: Dip. Aromatherapist & Nose

Carmen founded Nosewise bespoke perfumery in 2015 when she wanted more from a perfume than just a pretty scent with a side-serving of harmful chemicals and animal derived ingredients.

Her love of perfume and years of experience allows her to draw inspiration from the many high end fragrance brands, creating natural and cruelty-free versions of your favourite scents.
