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 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. ...

Reflexology

What is Reflexology? You may have heard people talking about this complementary therapy, but actually are unsure what is reflexology. I will attempt to describe it for you here. Reflexology is a special kind of massage on the feet, hands or face. Points and areas are pressed and gently held or 'finger-walked' to balance and soothe the body. This brings about a deep state of relaxation and encourages homoeostasis. I work with a gentle, but not light, pressure, which can also vary as I move around the feet. Over 7000 nerve endings are in the feet alone. Based on ...

Crystal reflexology

Crystal reflexology uses the actual crystals to perform the reflexology. I also place certain crystals on or around your body, if appropriate. These crystals are formed in the earth. They are mined in various countries and can be rough or smooth, from different levels within the ground. As such each one vibrates at it's own unique frequency. Often we are drawn to certain crystals, and we don't know why, although if we were to hold a selected crystal a while we could ascertain feelings and thoughts as to what it means for us. This may be completely different to how ...
