REST AND DIGEST DAY RETREAT AT YOGA HOUSE (SOLD OUT)
With Alice Billerey and Charlotte Kjaer Sunday 10th Feb 12-4pm
Yoga Bowl Events is a collaboration between Yoga Teacher, Alice Billerey and Chef, Charlotte Kjaer. 'Rest & Digest' will be a 4 hour day retreat centred around balancing the autonomic nervous system through yoga, meditation and a nutritional plant based lunch.
The afternoon will start will a 75 minute vinyasa flow practice. The flow will be a slow, but strong, exploration of the moving body. Expect a continuous rhythmic flow, each movement will be linked to the breath. This flow will be a moving meditation where the mind and body will intertwine, releasing tension and stress from the body and freeing the monkey mind from chitter-chatter, bringing you into a calm and relaxed state.
Lunch will then be served! Charlotte will create a balanced and healthy meal using plant based seasonal ingredients whilst utilising the wonders of the hemp plant and infusing small amounts of CBD to bring about a sense of wellbeing and relaxation.
CBD has a wealth of health benefits and is becoming a popular plant based remedy for a variety of ailments. The non psychoactive compound - cannabidiol - interacts with the body's endocannabinoid system which regulates the body's homeostasis impacting functions such as mood, sleep, appetite and pain and immune response.
The afternoon will finish with a 75 minute yin yoga practice. Yin yoga is all about slowing down and giving the body permission to rest. The 'rest and digest' branch of the nervous system will be stimulated through breathing exercises, meditation and long held passive postures to ease out tension and stress in every muscle in the body.

ALCHEMY BOWL SOUND BATH
with Selda Goodwin Sunday 10th FEB 6.45 - 8pm (after 5.30pm Restore to Flow with Kasia Blackwell)
A deeply restorative class using sound of alchemy crystal bowls to move the body into a deep state of rest.
The Alchemy crystal singing bowls are made from 99.992% pure crushed quartz and heated to about 4000 degrees F in a centrifugal mold. They are then infused with gemstones and precious metals, creating the ‘alchemy’. Each bowl has a variety of effects; clearing, activating, restructuring, rebalancing and healing.
Alchemy bowls emit a pure, cosmic sound that expands into a multitude of vibrant overtones. Through sound, vibration and intent they assist in clearing blockages, rewiring brain chemistry, activating chakras and elevating our state of consciousness to ever more refined levels.
Join us on Sunday to enter a state of pure bliss.
Open to all levels, usual class pass.
