Zen Yoga for Ease

Find some ease in your life.

Gentle space for you to move out of your busy mind and slide back into your body.

Bring a mat and blanket and get cosy for some body-centred mindfulness and healing relaxation.

 

Life has a tangible habit of ‘overwhelming’ us. Heidi has the remarkable ability to teach you how to relinquish this feeling and helps to encourage you to embrace the chance to give yourself time to be just “you”. Pure and simple. I cannot recommend Heidi enough if you are seeking ‘ease’ in your life.

Sarah Jennings

“I don’t often find time to be kind to myself as I am busy being kind to others (I hope). Coming to one of Heidi’s sessions gives me a moment to focus on myself, and boy does it feel good. I am so relaxed when I finish, I can’t wait for the next one!” LW.

Heidi exudes calm! We did some yoga and meditation outside in the summer sunshine and it was wonderful! The perfect way to simply stop and breathe. Highly recommended!

Heidi’s nourishing workshop was so calming and relaxing. I came away from it feeling so much more peaceful than before, it was really lovely. Would highly recommend it!

Nourishing Seasonal Workshops

Workshops with a focus on improving self-care, through experiencing the effects of meditative and mindfulness practices, and taking home suggestions for easy ways to start to incorporate these powerful practices your daily life.

Each workshop is unique, according to the season, but has an underlying structure of Zen yoga (mindful movement), meditation and Yoga Nidra (sleep yoga). Zen yoga is influenced by the oriental system 5 Element system of medicine, so we work with nourishing the organ systems associated with each of the five seasons – a lovely way to focus your self-care throughout the year.

Physically you need to be able to get up and down from a yoga mat – flexibility and experience of yoga is not needed.

Some of the many benefits:

  • Reducing anxiety
  • Reducing the damaging effects of constant stress and over-busyness
  • Practising and experiencing the powerful effects of mindfulness and mediation
  • Learning to activate your rest-digest mode so you can unwind properly when you need to
  • Improving the quality of your sleep
  • Developing a more positive relationship with your body and yourself
  • Starting to develop a way to look after yourself
  • Letting go of held patterns of tension and reducing chronic pain
  • Releasing emotions stored in the body in a safe space
  • Increasing your capacity for joy and fun!

Yoga Nidra: The Sleep of the Yogis

The deeply nourishing relaxation of this ancient meditative practice is so needed today and many people find a session to be just what they need to help with overwhelm from busy lives.
 
Bring your duvet, pillows, blankets – whatever you need to be really comfortable lying on the floor for an hour. You can’t do it wrong – just listen and enjoy.
