Yin Yoga Workshop

Resting In What Is - a Yin Yoga Workshop

Yin Yoga is an opportunity to slow down in an often busy life. The poses are held for 3-5 minutes, encouraging softening into the moment, a chance to check in with how you are doing and knowing that how ever you are it's ok. Yin is the energy of allowing and in this workshop we will be exploring what happens when you just let yourself be just as you are.

The Menstrual Cycle - Thrive In Modern Life

The Menstrual Cycle - our ultimate guide for thriving in modern life

‘Rest is the revolution that is going to power your life and menstruation is the ultimate time for getting it.’ - Wild Power We have been taught to see our menstrual cycle as a hassle, a problem, even a weakness that we need to overcome and pretend is not there. The truth is, our menstrual cycle is our ultimate inner guidance system and self–care tool. Getting to know the ‘inner seasons’ of your menstrual cycle will reveal how your feelings and energy shift through the month and that there is a pattern and purpose in this. Learn how to respect and co-operate with the pattern of your cycle to reap wonderful benefits including: - a new, kinder relationship with yourself (and quite possibly your nearest and dearest too!) - increased levels of energy and wellbeing - heightened creativity and productivity - reduced stress and anxiety - increased intuition and clarity - greater pleasure and pride in being a woman. Join Sjanie at Restfest to discover the power and potential of your bodies cyclical intelligence. Life will never be the same again - in a good way!

Making the Mundane Magic - Working with Daily Self Care Rituals

In this session, you’ll explore both self-care and ritual and what this means for you. You will look at your self-care style and think through practical tools for how you can slow down, get clear on your intentions and feelings and notice what happens in your body when you do. You will look at how you can alchemise mundane moments into magical experiences and create a life that you don’t want to run away from. Together, we will design a self-care ritual and you will walk away from this session with a deeper understanding of your self-care needs and practical rituals to nurture your mind, body and soul.

The Joy of Writing!

Laughter Yoga

Laughter Yoga is a revolutionary idea – simple and profound. An exercise routine, it is sweeping the world and is a complete wellbeing workout. In today’s world, people want to be healthy, they want to be happy, but instead they are getting stressed out, depressed, getting less sleep, more negative thoughts and feeling isolated. Does this sound like you? Are you someone who wants to bring more laughter and joy into your life? You are in the right place. Laughter Yoga has been developed by a medical doctor from India-  Dr. Madan Kataria – and it has spread across 100 countries.

Release, Reset, Replenish

In this session Hannah blends the magic of hypnosis with a restorative yoga flow fueled by your intention. Begin by letting go of whatever no longer serves you through your breath and detoxing movement. Then build fire in your belly and open your heart to what you’d like to bring into your life before journalling your intention. Literally breathe life into the future you, and harmonise your thinking and your belief in your abilities through the power of hypnosis. Leave feeling beautifully balanced and restored. Namaste.

Tantric Secrets

Your Pleasure Matters

How much pleasure do you allow yourself to feel on a day to day basis? Maybe you have a regular yoga practice, meditation practice or running practice, but do you have a regular pleasure practice? Pleasure is a lifestyle, the more you can allow yourself to enjoy and feel, the more alive you feel, which then helps you feel more ALIVE in bed! If your sex life has taken a hit, it's time to scale back and find out where your source of PLEASURE is in your life!

Daily Self Care Rituals & Qoya

The Rite Of The Womb

The Rite of the Womb is an energetic transmission meant to empower women and heal the feminine component of a woman’s energy. This rite is from a lineage of Peruvian shaman who brought it forward to help us ‘let go of fear and pain and to recognise that the womb is a place of creation and to give birth to all life.’ This is a special opportunity to connect with your feminine energies, your physical and etheric womb – not just for you but for your mother, grandmothers, daughters, the divine feminine – and celebrate this connection free from pain and full of loving creation.
