‘Stress Relief & Building Resilience’ – TRE Workshop @ Wellbeing Centre
Jan 5 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
‘Stress Relief & Building Resilience’ – TRE Workshop @ Wellbeing Centre

Keeping our stress hormones in balance is key to maintaining good physical and psychological health. TRE is a simple body practice that enables us effectively to ‘down-regulate’ our over-alert nervous systems, reducing the build up of stress hormones and cultivating more capacity to respond skilfully to the challenges we face

With TRE we learn: to release tension; to relieve pain; to let go of past or present events/experiences which have created a huge impact on us (either physical or emotional); to begin to see and feel more possibilities and choices in our current situation

TRE touches many different health issues, e.g. poor energy, joint and muscular pain/achiness, insomnia, anxiety, depression, grief – and so much more – whilst directly boosting the nervous system, immune system and digestive system

If you would like to experience and learn this self-help practice, or would like to deepen your current practice, you are very welcome to join us:

Pre-booking required. One-to-one sessions also available: morning or late afternoon £45.

Extraordinary Vessels, Menstruation, Conception and Pregnancy – Suzanne Yates @ Gong Bodywork
Jan 19 @ 10:00 am – Jan 20 @ 6:00 pm
Extraordinary Vessels, Menstruation, Conception and Pregnancy - Suzanne Yates @ Gong Bodywork

Open to Shiatsu Practitioners

TO BOOK please email jane.shiatsu@gmail.com for a booking form or to ask questions.

Learn the importance of the Extraordinary Vessels for female clients: understand the changes in the menstrual cycle and key changes in pregnancy.

You may or may not be working with women trying to conceive and pregnant women, but you feel that you would like a deeper understanding of how to support women and their families during this potentially challenging yet exciting time. You may even be afraid or unsure of how to work with certain aspects of pregnancy. The most effective way to support conception,  pregnancy, and indeed the whole maternity period is to include work with the Core Four Extraordinary Vessels, not simply Conception and Governing Vessel. This course will help you understand more fully the powerful Extraordinary Vessels.

You will:

  • Understand why the key Extraordinary Vessels of Penetrating Vessel (Sea of Blood) and Girdle Vessel are so fundamental to menstruation, conception and pregnancy
  • Learn key changes during the menstrual cycle and pregnancy
  • Learn positioning issues for pregnancy
  • Understand more about your own connection to the menstrual cycle and pregnancy
  • Learn how to work sensitively and effectively with low risk women in the second and third trimester

Developing the Yin Field ~ Qigong with Cindy Engel @ Wellbeing Centre
Feb 24 @ 9:30 am – 4:30 pm

A key stage in our Qigong progress is discernible via a ‘felt connection’ between the Yin field of our hands and specific layers of our internal tissues. How do we develop this? Why bother? What is it for? How do we know when we have it and what can we do then?

An important aspect of the Lotus Neigong syllabus is presented with both practice and theory

Suitable for intermediate Qigong practitioners and beyond, however if you have a skill in Mindfulness you are welcome to join

The day will involve standing, sitting and lying down, with regular breaks. Short lectures and handouts will be provided. Although Cindy has a serious approach to the depth of this work, she always makes humour an important part of the day

Please call 01603 632555 or email Dinah at Shiatsu College for further info or to book

Cindy Engel is a highly experienced Qigong Teacher, to find out more: www.cindyengel.com
