About The Courses
De-Stress through Tai Chi
Would you like to feel less strained, less stressed and have more energy to deal with the pressures of everyday living? This course offers a gentle introduction to de-stressing through the ancient art of T'ai Chi Chuan and Chi Kung. Tai Chi involves standing and moving slowly into a sequence of flowing movements, combined with rhythmic breathing. You will need to wear loose comfortable clothing.
De-Stress through Aromatherapy
We all respond to fragrances in different ways. Discover what essential oils make you feel good and lift your spirits, and learn some recipes to enable you mix a personal bath or diffusing oil at home. Using essential oils in a massage lotion, learn which acupressure points on the face and hands can help to lessen the effects of stress.
De-Stress through Massage
This will teach you how to use simple massage to stimulate specific pressure points. You will learn the massage strokes to use for the face, head, upper body and hands to help you to wind down and revive flagging energy levels. This massage can be done fully clothed.
De-Stress through Voice Work
This course is based on using vocal training and training techniques to help to relax the physical body, and to bring calm to a busy mind. You will learn how to breathe correctly to optimise your oxygen intake, which helps to stimulate that ‘feel good' factor and general well-being, and use vocalisation and breathing to release everyday tension.
De-Stress through Pilates
It is important that we recognise inner tension and understand how our body copes with it. Using the discipline of Pilates you will perform exercises to work your muscles and energise all parts of the body, to regenerate, strengthen and relax the physical body, and to bring calm to a busy mind. The course is held in a large and airy studio.
This course will teach you a variety of complementary therapies to give you some quick and easy ‘self help fixes' to help to alleviate everyday stress. These therapies will help to relax the body and bring calm to a busy mind.
