Herbal Eye Pillows

A herbal eye pillow is very relaxing placed over the eyes or next to the face as you relax. They are made using high quality herbs and linseeds or rice, which are stitched into a lining inside the pillowcase, ensuring that no filling escapes. They are made to order, using quality fabrics in a broad range of styles and colours, to suit everyone. Approximate size is 23cm x 8cm. Approximate weight 70g. I have formulated 5 separate herbal mixes for you to choose from (please scroll to the bottom of this page for details), but with discussion I am able to adapt or even ...

The Lodge Therapy Room

The Lodge therapy room is a large wooden cabin, made from imported polish wood. Imagine a beautiful, natural wooden house, simply decorated with subtle touches of luxury. Seemingly in nature but in a suburban garden, The Lodge provides a convenient space for relaxation and de-stressing. With it's own wood burner to gently heat the room in the cooler months, and soft lighting, it is the perfect place for yoga and other therapies to take place. Some workshops are able to take place here, although there are no toilet facilities at the Lodge and so it isn't suitable ...

Partner pregnancy yoga class with labour and birth preparation

All welcome to the partner pregnancy yoga class with labour and birth preparation. Time is spent exploring yoga postures to connect with the breath and our partners, to feel (as pregnant women) fully supported, and (as partners) empowered with knowledge of techniques to offer/ receive that support, as needed. The room is set up in double mat sections if space allows, with couples having their own space to practice. There is time to chat to other couples before class if you arrive early enough, and for about 15 minutes after. From being a 'human birthing ball' and other ...

Yoga Nidra

Yoga Nidra is loosely translated as 'Yoga-Sleep; since yoga means union of the body-mind, therefore 'union of the body and mind in a deeply relaxed state'. The practise is quite simple. Lying down or sitting supported, so that you can totally relax, all you need to do is listen and feel. It is a different technique to a meditation, and it is not a trance. You are very safe. You may fall asleep, and although this is not the aim, it can be what is needed for you so don't worry too much. The practice of yoga and deep relaxation has been found to reduce anxieties and ...

Meditation

There are so many different types of meditation. Some contain movement; some contain stillness. Some have breathing practices; some have visualisations. Some have eyes open, some closed. The common element is focus. As the mind stills, with regular meditation practice, it is able to recognise when it is wandering. At this point we can direct it back gently to the focus point and remain present. Daily commitment is advised to get the most out of meditating, but don't judge yourself if you forget or just didn't have the time. Choose a suitable time and place, maybe ...

Private Yoga Classes

During private yoga classes you can be sure of individual attention. Sometimes it can be difficult to be part of a class setting. Perhaps you feel self-conscious, or have never done yoga before and don't know what to expect. A private class can be just what you need to have a little confidence in yourself, to realise that you are not the same as anyone else, and that you are on your own journey. Perhaps you need just one or two private yoga classes before joining the public class. Maybe you prefer the one-to-one attention long term. It is entirely your decision. ...

Yoga… sleep???

Calmness, peacefulness, relaxation. "I could do with that!", people tell me, when I say I am a yoga teacher or talk about my practise. I also sometimes get the response "Oh but I am not flexible enough to do yoga.". Posture practise, which has commonly become known as 'yoga', is only one part of it.. In my humble opinion, yoga, (union of body and mind) is possibly more difficult to work towards through postures, to those of us who are flexible than it is to those of us who aren't, unless you are hung up on what the person next to you is doing. Sometimes, even the thought ...
