After proving so popular our chakra healing circle and sound bath is back for another year!
Chakras are the energy centres within the human body. There are seven main Chakras and each 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.
Each workshop we will focus on a specific Chakra, what it is, it’s implications and the associated colours and crystals. We will do a guided healing meditation based on the specific Chakra, followed by an alchemy crystal sound bath led by Maria.
The alchemy crystal sound bath will help to deepen and strengthen your work with your chakras and provide you with just what you need at that time.
You will leave with your chosen crystal and information handout with some ideas on how to work with your chakras at home.

Flow & Rest: Spinal Bliss
This is a workshop of two halves focusing on mobilising and nourishing the spine, led by Chloe Tully.
After a brief introduction to the spine, it’s anatomy, the ways in which it moves and the key muscles involved in bringing about those movements, the workshop practice will build into a dynamic, energising vinyasa flow sequence with a focus on mobilising the spine.
You will then wind down, moving into a slow and sumptuous phase of restorative yoga. Here you will use props (e.g. blankets and bolsters) to support the body in restful and nourishing poses – again, focusing on the movements of the spine – which are held for up to 5 minutes and which facilitate deep relaxation of both body and mind.
A perfect balance of yang and yin, this workshop aims to transport you to a place of spinal bliss!
2hours – £24 (All equipment and props will be provided)
Heartcore Healing: Energy Healer & Spiritual Life Coach
Sue is an Energy Healer working with individuals and groups to help bring about restorative change and wellbeing. She works in a very intuitive way, often able to address the underlying pathological emotional issue that can be causing problems. Sue is not prescriptive in her work as she knows each individual is just that: individual with unique beliefs and imprints that have been developed from past and current lifetimes as well as ancestral lineage and karma.
Presenting issues can disguise a myriad of emotional causes that can be buried deep within the subconscious mind; this means that common sense and logic are not always the best approach.
Sue is a certified Usui Reiki and Angelic Reiki practitioner with a diploma in crystal healing. She is also attuned to Alchemy Energetics: Spiritual Level, this is a powerful, high vibrational advanced healing system.
Maria is a qualified psychotherapist and an accredited member of the BACP. She has worked with both adults and children in the NHS and charity sectors.
Maria works from an existential and contemporary psychodynamic perspective helping you to explore and reflect on your life, whilst learning more about yourself and your relationships.
Psychotherapy can help alleviate anxiety, depression, loneliness, trauma, relationship issues, destructive habits and more. Maria initially offers a phone consultation to discuss what it is you require from therapy and then if you would like to go ahead an assessment can be arranged. Choosing a therapist can be daunting and it is important to choose a therapist you feel you can work with and trust.
Hannah likes supporting people by sharing yoga that responds to their unique needs, is useful to everyday life and brings them into balance. Since initially training as a yoga teacher in 2013, she has been committed to study & training in order to create safe, welcoming and supportive space for anyone to explore & benefit from yoga – no matter their needs, condition or background. She has spent as much time in a yoga studio as she has in care homes, mental health hospitals, dementia wards, children’s centres & special needs services. After 5 years sharing yoga in this way, she completed her 550 hours certification to become a Yoga Therapist. She is currently training to be a Holistic Life Coach – this training is enriching her Yoga Therapy support and will be an additional service she will be sharing in the near future – so watch this space!
Hannah is an accredited Complementary Yoga Therapist with the Complementary and Natural Health Council (CNHC).
