iRest Yoga Nidra 6 week meditation course
Friday night Sound Bath Journeys
Experience the enchanting sound of pure quarz cystal bowls and the remarkable Alchemy bowls infused with gemstones and precious metals.
In a sound bath you lay down, get really cosy and let the sounds wash over you. Hearing a sound bath is different to listening to music as there is no melody. The sounds are un-structured and encourage a new way of listening that is non judgemental and mindful. This allows you to let go of your analytic mind and as your brain waves slow down and ease into a calm peaceful place without you having to do anything. It's a bit like having a deep meditation state being dropped into your body.
Combined with a powerful intention that optimises the healing effects of the bowls you will leave rebalanced, recharged and revitalised each week has a different theme so get in touch via the contact page for more details

Restful Yoga a 4 week course to learn restorative yoga for beginners
Thursdays 5.30- 7.00 pm From May 3 $100
Restorative Yoga is to Yoga what the slow food movement is to food! This is a deep restful style of Yoga that can at first seem a bit intimidating to busy people who find it hard to slow down but can be the most nourishing practice you can introduce into your self-care routine.
Restorative Yoga is done using equipment like blankets, yoga bolsters and blocks that support you in positions that encourage deep rest and good breathing. The grounding; complete, full breathing; and quietness of restorative yoga help us to move into the relaxation response, a neurological state that tells us we are safe, and moves us out of “flight or fight” mode, initiating the body’s self-healing process.
It’s a very safe form of Yoga that can be practiced while in recovery from injuries, cancer and a number of chronic health conditions. It is also the perfect counterpoint to gym routines, marathon training, and high intensity sports.
There are a great number of studies on restorative yoga and the benefits that may come from practicing it are a reduction in depression, improved mental health and wellbeing, better sleep, improved fertility, reduced fat due to changes in cortisol levels, more energy and improved breathing.
