The Pursuit of Happiness with Alison Lane
Sunday 21st March 2021
5.30pm – 7pm
Live Online via Zoom or available on catch up

£10

“Now and then it’s good to pause in your pursuit of happiness, and just be happy”.

Guillaume Apollinaire

 

But how…. How can we be happy when external factors may not be to our satisfaction? How can we be happy when we’ve not yet accomplished all the “goals” we want to achieve? This is called conditional happiness, when we perceive that certain conditions need to be met in order for us to be content. But there is another way….

Join Alison for this 90 minute workshop combining yoga flow, Pranayama (breathing) and meditation to pause… and explore how we can “just be happy” – unconditionally.

Beginning in the majestic mountains of the Himalayas, we will journey past our ego, with its ever-changing likes, dislikes and compulsion to seek happiness externally. Flowing into a calming yoga sequence of introspective poses we will begin to disconnect from the external and focus our attention deeply inwards…. to realise an infinite source of unconditional peace and contentment – our true Self.

This workshop is for anyone who has ever said or thought the words “I’ll be happy when….” or “I’ll be happy if….” (i.e. EVERYONE!) Suitable for all levels. No previous yoga experience necessary

Online Gong Sound Bath with Craig Eddington
Sunday 18th April 2021
6pm – 6.45pm
Live Online via Zoom 
£10
A Gong Relaxation Sound Bath is a fantastic way to leave behind the stresses of modern life. It is also a great introduction to Sound Healing and Sound Therapy. The Gong is played gently along with Himalayan & Crystal Singing Bowls. The captivating tones will lull you into a deep, restorative, relaxation. There are a number of health benefits associated with achieving this state of deep relaxation: lower blood pressure, increased blood circulation, balancing of the nervous system, reduced mind chatter, better sleep patterns. The sound helps to induce our natural relaxation response, taking us out of ‘fight or flight’ mode and into our restorative, parasympathetic state.
Participants are encouraged to have a blanket, a pillow or anything else you might need to make yourself cosy. You will still get as much benefit from the Online Sound Bath as what you would in the Studio. Try connecting a bluetooth speaker to your device for better sound quality.
We can’t wait to see you online!

People with auto-immune conditions and conditions involving the nervous system seem to feel considerable benefits.
Participants generally leave with a feeling of inner peace and tranquillity and a reduced sense of stress, anxiety or worry. A Gong Relaxation works on all levels of your being – mind, body, soul & spirit. The sound vibrations will provide a ‘sonic massage’ to your physical self and subtle energy fields, leaving you feeling relaxed, refreshed and restored.
