Beginner's Iyengar Yoga Course with Adrienne Bagnall

Beginner’s Iyengar Yoga 5-Week Course – Thursdays 12th September to 24th October (no class on Sept 26th or Oct 17th) 10am to 11:15am
£60 / £13 drop in

Yoga in its broadest sense is one of the oldest systems of personal development in the world. It is a complete system for balancing the body, mind and spirit.

Iyengar yoga uses props such as bricks, blocks and belts, to enable everyone to practise postures (asana) and breath control (pranayama) safely. Iyengar Yoga will improve your strength and flexibility, and help your mind to be calm and clear.

This 6-week course is suitable for the complete beginner to yoga or those who have been practicing for a while but would like to gain more experience before moving on to a general level class.

Adrienne is an Iyengar yoga teacher, holistic therapist and teacher with the Positive Movement Programme. In her early years she was a gymnast and a gymnastic coach and her early connection with body work quite naturally led her to find yoga, which she has now been practising for 18 years. Adrienne’s love of Iyengar lies with its discipline, precision and advance knowledge of the asanas, pranayama and philosophy. She teaches with warmth and enthusiasm and respects each individual’s unique abilities. Here classes adapt to those with injuries and medical conditions.

REIKI - Reiki I and II Practitioner Training (Usui/Holy Fire® III) with Gabriella Angus and Claire Sangster - NEW DATES ADDED

Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th November 2019
09:00 -17:30
£185 or £165 earlybird before October 6th

Are you interested in becoming a Reiki Practitioner?
Becoming a Reiki Practitioner is very simple. You do not need to have special skills or any prior experience in energy work or holistic therapies. All that you need to know will be given to you during the course.

This is a special intensive course combining both Reiki 1 and Reiki 2

Reiki 1 re-awakens and enhances our connection to that which is most sacred within us; the universal life force energy of pure unconditional love. It works mainly on the physical body helping to balance the organism and boosts the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It also helps mentally and emotionally as it helps to disperse stress and toxins that have accumulated. Reiki helps us to establish a deeper level of love and respect for our physical bodies and may bring insights in to how we can achieve increased health and vitality.

Reiki 2 increases the amount of energy that we are able to hold and channel. It supports our own spiritual awakening as it deepens our connection with the source energy which runs in and with and through everything. In Reiki 2 we are introduced to Reiki symbols, which enable us to work more deeply on the mental and emotional levels as well as the physical. We also learn how to send distance healing. We deepen our relationship with Reiki and work more intuitively as we start to see a myriad of ways for using this extra-ordinary energy.
This Reiki 1 and 2 class will teach you how to give treatments to yourself and others. It will give you all that you need to know to be a confident Reiki Practitioner.

This Reiki 1 and 2 course is held over two days and includes:

Day 1:
• Reiki Level 1 placement

• How to give others Reiki

• Reiji-ho (developing your intuition)
• Hayashi Healing Guide (suggested treatments for different conditions)
• Gassho meditation
• Cleansing, protection and grounding
• Exploring the many uses of Reiki
• The Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice for being a professional therapist

Day 2:

• How to send distant /absent healing
• Sending Reiki to the past and future
• Treating animals and plants

• Reiki for spiritual growth and development
• Progression through Reiki – what is the next step for you?
