    Welcome to learning more about how you can relax.  After more than 2 decades I am on a Personal Mission to educate others on how simple it is to relax.  After being subjected to on going Trauma from an early age, (PTSD) I found Yoga and Meditation. Since then not only has it changed how I feel, it has helped me to be more "engaged" in life rather than dis associated with life and myself.  There are several ways you can find your way back to knowing yourself better, loving yourself more and living in harmony with life, enjoying what quite often is right there in front of you but you can't see it for the blurr and confusion that has develped through the stress and concerns of Modern day living.

You can  go onto the Group Page in FB and gather up great tips and stories on how you can improve your lifestyle and transform stress into stillness and develop more prescence in your life for Free!

What is Restorative Yoga?

Restorative Yoga is becoming increasingly popular as a source of Deep Relaxation and Self Enquiry often the most difficult of skills to master.  Using the principles of support/sublime positioning, meditation, guided visualisation/Relaxation, breathing well, you are guided into relaxation/mindfulness. Yoga and it's associated practises are being used by Doctors, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Nurses and other Allied Health practitioners. Because it works! 

With anxiety, depression & adrenal exhaustion becoming common health issues effecting peoples energy and ablility to cope with living a work-life- balance, the importance to learn how to overcome stress is essential to good health. Further studies  in nuero science are showing how we can change and reverse the effects of stress to enhance our state of health and wellbeing. Restorative Yoga does just that.  Restorative Yoga is a practical  and effective way to reduce stress and aid the body's natural healing to take place for a wide variety of physical, mental and emotional health concerns. Studies in Relaxation and meditation reveal the associated practices to acheive this are necessary to re set the body's Flight Flight Response to withdraw and the Rest and Digest Response to Restore.

After using various applications of Yoga since 1992 I have chosen the most adaptable practices integrating these to create two weekend Workshop style courses.  Part one 2.5 days covers setting up , Principles and application of Restorative Practices,Yoga Positions, learning basic principles of breathing, Mudra, Assisting and Adjusting, Natural Healing, Intention, Awareness, Meditation/self enquiry and progressive Relaxation. Part 2 includes Principles and applications of Yoga Nidra/progressive Relaxation with the emphasis on Guided Visualisation. Meditation/contemplation, applying specific breath practices for various health conditions.  Both weekends include a Guide on how to use apply and teach . Both weekends inter relate and integrate together as a whole Restorative Lifestyle package.
