Detox and revitalise your body workshop: Saturday 21 June, 1-4pm

Detox and revitalise your body workshop


Saturday 21st June 2014, 1-4pm

Yoga teacher, Cherie Lathey, and Nutritionist, Fleur Borrelli, will be holding an afternoon detox workshop on Saturday 21st June from 1-4pm.

A detox awakens the body’s powerful cleansing and healing abilities, helping to cure and prevent disease, restore health, balance emotions and prolong life.

A juice detox with yoga helps eliminate toxins by producing internal heat and massaging the internal organs, whilst boosting the immune system, restoring the body’s natural healing power. It is a great kick-start to a healthier, more positive, lifestyle.

The afternoon will include:
  • "Why detox" with Fleur Borrelli: Understanding why the mind and body benefits from gentle detoxifying.
  • Vinyasa flow yoga with Cherie Lathey: Focusing on breath, movement, twisting, and heat producing poses.
  • Refreshing detoxifying fresh juices / smoothies prepared by Fleur.
  • Discussion and recipes on superfoods & smoothies. Learn how to prepare for the best detox results.

Both Fleur and Cherie believe in a gentle and safe detox approach.

Cost: £45

Early bird offer: £40 (if booked before 15 June)

Awakening through yoga and mediation, twerking & Justin Bieber

I love this compilation of statements by Russell Brand. He is articulating what a lot of people feel at the moment and sharing his understanding of what is important in life and how yoga, prayer and mediation can help ALL human beings to be just that, "human". I personally love the section on "twerking" and Justin Beiber. As Mr Brand says, who really who gives a S*** about this stuff?

New baby massage course. Starts June 3rd



2-week baby massage course

starts Tuesday 3rd June 2014, 9:30am

Massage is the most natural and instinctive form of caring for the baby. New-born babies experience the world through their senses, such as touch, smell, taste, sound and vision. These senses are developing gradually, but from the moment of birth the baby already understands the language of touch.

The course, led by Hajni, is suitable for babies from birth.

Cost: £40
