JULY WORKSHOPS

Breathing into Life – Somatic Movement and Breath-Work 

To breathe well is to live well. Our breathing directly relates to anxiety. When we change our breath we change the biochemistry of the body.

When we improve the quality of our breathing we improve the energy flowing through our systems which improves our vitality, moves toxins, releases tension, and enables deeper rest and recovery.

What to expect-

You will better understand the process of breathing from an embodied perspective and how the breath affects our nervous system, our emotional wellbeing, and state of mind (mental health).

You will learn how to change your breath to change your experience. 

Sanskrit texts and Yoga philosophy says that we come into life with so many breaths. Why not learn how to make the most of them!

Heartfulness – How to lead our actions, decisions 

How can your life be led by the heart? How does your heart resonate a clear direction or decision? In this workshop, you will learn life-enhancing techniques to distinguish the head from the heart in decision-making.  

Our rational, educated mind has learnt ways to be and perform in the world. It can be a challenge to access instinct, intuition and body wisdom when this has not been honed as a valuable resource and indicator of successful decision making.

What to expect-

You will better understand how the body communicates its opinions and guidance.

Understand the role of somatic listening in decision making with practical tools you can apply to any situation or decision.

Find reassurance and comfort in your choices knowing that mind and body are aligned. When the heart leads, the mind follows and supports the fulfilment of your heart choice. The key is knowing where to begin and how to set your compass for your true north.

While the mind is a great resource for problem-solving, creating and actioning. To have true coherence in mind and body we need the heart to assigns the course and direction before the mind manages the process.

Without the heart, there is no passion, drive, commitment, perseverance and energy to sustain the decision or direction of our path be it relating to career, life, goals or what to cook for dinner!

Discover how it feels to be led by your heart, distinguish the unique indicators of your body.

Connect to your heart to discover the innate support and clarity it offers in your daily life.

Testimonials-

Laura’s skill including the needs of everyone was amazing and whatever we needed she provided. Everyone needs to do this, it is a coming back to Self. This was a profoundly positive experience.

  • Sandra, Physical Therapist

I feel energised and more connected deeply within myself, both physically and emotionally. It encouraged me to open up rather than shut down and survive. It helps manage my symptoms of MS too.

  • Anna, Nursing

I’ve really enjoyed having time in my diary that I look forward to where I can unplug and relax.

  • Dane, Technical Sourcing Recruiter

Laura has the most amazing calming and grounded energy, she seems to see past the physical and straight to the core of a person making them feel at ease. She is encouraging and full of knowledge. She creates a safe space to practice in, her sessions are fantastic.

  • Rowena, Event Management

As someone who’s been suffering with chronic migraine for the past 2 years, I found the workshop very helpful, relieving the tension built up in my neck and shoulders. Covid times also meant more hours sitting for me, so the somatic movement sessions have been both invigorating and relaxing. Thank you, Laura!
