Seated Yoga

Milford on Sea Village Community Centre

• What we'll do Introduction Seated yoga is designed for those who feel getting up and down from the floor is now a step too far, but still want to maintain a healthy body and mind. It has a strong focus on both body and mind awareness, so in essence is a great all round work out for the whole of you! Seated Yoga counters the effects of gravity by lengthening the spine, opening the posture (and chest) and moving each joint through its full range of movement. As well putting the body through its paces the seated yoga class integrates aspects of meditation and mindfulness. Who will benefit from seated yoga? Those who are curious about how their body works. Those who find it difficult putting their socks on in the morning. Those who walk into a room, and can’t remember what they are looking for. Those who have done yoga before and those who have not. Those who play sport and those that may want to start. Those who react rather than respond to stressful situations. Those who find their quality of sleep poor. Those with general or more specific aches and pains. Those with a mismatch in their work life balance. • What to bring Loose but warm clothing • Important to know

Learn How To Make Healthy Sauerkraut

Private address

£25.00

Did you know that Healthy Gut = Healthy Mind & Body? When we were a wee tiny developing fetus, our brain was formed from our gut. This explains why we get gut feelings and sensations when we have strong emotions. It also explains why the Gut-Brain connection is so very important and why, when our gut does not have a good number of 'good bacteria' depression and other mental health challenges are the consequence. Did you know that when your gut is healthy you will very rarely get sick? I can't recall the last time I was ill. How does the gut get poor? The biggest culprit is antibiotics. They don't just kill the bad guys, they also kill the good ones too 😟 Consuming fermented unpasteurised, organic foods are probably one of the best ways to get your gut healthy. Buying them can be expensive, and in my experience, they often don't taste nice. However, they are super easy to make at home and, as I want to help you be healthy, I have begun to teach how. I can teach you how to make kombucha (a delicious drink now even on sale in Waitrose) and sauerkraut (a mix of mostly cabbage and other veg) this Sunday, I shall be teaching sauerkraut. My pot from my last workshop is happily fermenting away in my kitchen and will be fully ready to eat soon. During my talk & demonstration, you will learn why consuming a variety of fermented foods is so very important for your health and well-being.

Persuasive statistics to take up mindfulness! Why not look at some more benefits that yoga and mindfulness can bring. In 2014 research has proven how if you practice mindfulness and yoga when you are older, you will help maintain your cognitive abilities The integrated nature of the classes I run will mean over a period of time you will become more flexible and agile, increase your core strength, develop your sense of balance, and learn to find a sense of inner stillness and calm in those stressful moments.
