Self Care Sunday is almost upon us and no matter how you may be spending your Sunday see if you can give yourself a little bit of 'me' time. Sit with a cuppa, read a few pages in a book, listen to some music, go for a rainy walk. Just do something for you and be present within it, what ever it is. As every Sunday comes around let it be a day of self care, make it a priority, and even if Sunday doesn't quite fall into alignment with your schedule you can choose another day to make your 'own'.
This Sunday Im sharing two workshops, my lovely Self Care Sunday session in the Wyre Forest and my Relaxation Yoga & Sound Bath workshop, all of my offerings fill me up but somehow these two in particular just give a sense of rebalancing as we start a brand new week.
SELF CARE SUNDAY SESSIONS
Self Care Sunday is a practice dedicated to bringing you back home to yourself. The perfect chance to reconnect back to your body and mind, all the while enjoying the most beautiful views while practicing. This session offers a combination of practices, and each month you can enjoy a different theme and intention. You can learning meditation techniques to calm a busy mind and enjoy varied yoga practices inspired by a whole array of wonderful intentions and philosophies. Sometimes we may journal, sometimes we may explore face yoga, self massage, myofascial release, EFT, sound healing and much more. These Self Care Sunday sessions are a wholesome package that will leave you feeling grounded, at ease and beautiful from the inside out. Every time you come to practice you will take away a new technique that can inspire personal & spiritual growth. You will also receive a little homemade self care gift bag to take away to treat yourself when ever you feel like it.

RELAXATION YOGA & SOUND BATH
This practice is the perfect opportunity to recalibrate, to rest and to create more space in your life. This is a monthly immersion to help you settle into a deep state of rest. From busy lives, demanding jobs, to do lists, hectic schedules and a wandering mind its sometimes very difficult for us to switch off and enjoy a little time for ourself.
This session offers a journey into releasing physical tension with a gentle and restorative yoga practice, allowing you to breathe and relax into each posture with the use of props. Restorative yoga is a restful practice where we don't move around a lot so its great for those who aren't familiar with yoga, have limited range of movement or suffer from aches and pains on a daily basis. This practice is all about rest.
For the sound bath part of the practice settle for a long relaxation (45 minutes), within the relaxation you rest comfortably wrapped in all your blankets and layers and will be guided through a meditation, this could be inspired by the seasons, philosophy, a quote, a visualisation, each practice will be different. Accompanying the guided relaxation will be live sounds, from singing bowls, chimes, drum, rainstick, hand pan, gong and voice this will then lead into a full sound bath experience allowing your body & mind to move through a journey of resting and releasing.
This is one of the most profound practices you will ever experience and I cannot wait to share it with you.
Benefits of this practice are:
+ A calmer and clearer mind.
+ Decreased stress levels.
+ Increased mobility & flexibility.
+ Improved posture.
+ Reduced stress & anxiety.
+ Increased lung capacity & circulation.
+ Improved cognition and body awareness.
