​Wu Daoyin: Guiding and leading the Qi – with Cindy Engel @ Wellbeing Centre
Feb 25 @ 9:30 am – 1:30 pm
​Wu Daoyin: Guiding and leading the Qi - with Cindy Engel @ Wellbeing Centre

Sometimes information in the body from past events continues to hold us back and needs to go. Sometimes physical damage to the body is holding back the smooth operation of our movements or our energy flow. Sometimes stagnation needs to be shifted with a bit of assertiveness and nothing else will do. The ‘Daoyins’ can be used to shift stagnation, clear, open and lengthen the body for improved function. This could be a sweaty, slightly challenging morning, which – after exhausting you – will leave you feeling lighter, brighter, and happier. Bring a towel!

Suitable for all as we will each control how much we do during each practice session

(Cindy Engel was granted permission to teach this material by Damo Mitchell, of Lotus Nei Gong International). Cindy Engel is a highly experienced Qigong Teacher, to find out more about her visit www.wildhealth.co.uk

I found Qigong or it found me, I’m not sure. However, it is the start of a wonderful(and at times annoying and sickening) journey. Cindy is the perfect guide along this path. She blends the East and West, the science and the esoteric perfectly. An added bonus is that she is just the right kind of bonkers. A brilliant teacher.” Ben Grief (Science teacher, 2015)

Teacher: Claire Stevens   
Cost: £25 per workshop  / £140 for 6 weeks (£110 low waged / £90 unwaged)

A series of 6 Thursday evening workshops for pregnant mothers (and partners if desired) – to assist them in their pregnancy, to prepare them for birth and for the early stages of new motherhood

Focus will be on the mother, with suggestions given on supportive foods and herbs during this journey. There will be nurturing mini-massages, warm drinks and sharing experiences, along with talks from experienced birth and post-birth doulas.

We will listen to positive and inspiring birth stories and explore medication-free options for pain relief during birth. We will talk about and prepare ourselves for experiencing the strong emotions that can arise during pregnancy and in that sacred few months after giving birth.

We will discover simple recipes and sample nurturing dishes that support the mother’s energy system, both in pregnancy and in the time that follows the passage of birth. We will explore acupressure points that can assist during these key stages and give suggestions about baby weaning from a Chinese medicine perspective.

Trauma Release Exercises (TRE) - 3 Part Workshop Series @ The Wellbeing Centre

Date: Jan 20 / Feb 17 / Mar 17 

Time: 1.00 – 3.00pm / OR 4 – 6pm 

Open to all

This course of three experiential workshops 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.
