Hatha Yoga

with Bou Mowl

Find time to chill, find ways to be calm, breathe and just be.

Practicing yoga you will find that there are many benefits that you will bring to parts of your body and mind. Your practice will help your muscular, nervous, digestive and respiratory systems. You will find a warm welcome at this class, it is particularly for those that think they are not flexible, as I will encourage you to listen to your body and learn to be guided by it and to notice how much it wants you to do. I will give alternative poses depending on how you are feeling that day.

If you find that sitting cross legged is not so easy, this is the class for you. I have chairs for you to work with and I can adapt poses to suit your body type. Bring your yoga mat, a cushion and a blanket or just bring you.

Romany Wisdom

with Patrick Jasper Lee

Jasper will introduce a rare and valuable form of shamanic journeying known as “spirit travelling”.

Help yourself find direction and purpose in life, address matters relating to loss of soul, and heal your wounds. You will also experience the advantage of learning how to strengthen your connection to otherworld spirits and forces, along with the healing benefits associated with Romani Conscious dreaming techniques. An established voice on Romani Gypsy folklore, myth, and ancient aspects of his tribal culture, Jasper Is known as “Chovihano” (medicine man), and has travelled the world with his craft.
