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

Qigong Workshop with Cindy Engel

This workshop focuses on mind-body connection within the Lotus Neigong International syllabus, using the Yin field of the hands to influence internal tissues (soft tissue). This stage of connection is an important landmark in Qigong and so it is worth spending a day working on the precise mechanisms of its development.

This is a practice 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 hand-outs 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.

Trauma Release Exercises (TRE) Workshops @ The Yoga Tree
Nov 10 @ 10:30 am – Dec 8 @ 12:30 pm
Trauma Release Exercises (TRE) Workshops @ The Yoga Tree

Times: 10.30 – 12.30 OR  1.30 – 3.30pm / Individual personal sessions also available

Open to all

This experiential workshop is designed to introduce you to the practice of TRE and teach the essential skill of self-regulation in preparation for taking up TRE at home on your own. You will be taken through the main principles of how TRE works and guided in how to use it safely as a valuable and effective self-help tool.

TRE is a mindful body practice which dynamically releases stress, tension and trauma stored in our bodies from both recent and more historic life experiences. By using a set of simple exercises we can trigger therapeutic tremors in the body, ‘recalibrating’ our central nervous system and interrupting the release of stress hormones. TRE restores a sense of calm, re-balances vital body systems and builds resilience physically and psychologically.

Pre-booking required. For more information please contact  07795 194021 or to book email Marisa

One on one consultation sessions also available in the mornings of the workshops.
