Join yoga therapist Bel Charlesworth to explore the basic principles of yoga.

Each session will include a short, grounding meditation and some relaxed yoga philosophy (i.e. What’s it all about then?) with a herbal tea. You’ll then enjoy an extended yoga class including pranayama (breathing exercises), taking time to prepare and explore the benefits of each posture and how to modify if needed.

How to Live an Authentic Life

Suitable for: all

Timing: 3.5 hours

Cost: £40

Focus on: discovering the real you

Teacher: Jacqui

Join Jacqui Cooper on this empowering journey of self-discovery.

Explore who you are now, where you are now and where you want to be with our ‘How to Live an Authentic Life’ workshop.

Take a minute (now) to close your eyes, take a deep breath, and let us ask you this question.

Picture yourself five years into the future. What if in five years’ time you are still doing what you are doing now – what does that look like, sound like or feel like to you? What, if anything, would you like to change? What’s stopped you from making that change so far?

Do you know the biggest fear most people have that holds them back? The fear of what others might think. So, let’s just consider for a moment, if you cared less about what others might think – what might you like to do differently?

This is the starting point for Jacqui’s workshop – a small group session where proven tools and techniques (and some more ‘out there’ stuff) is used to help you choose to live a more authentic life.

Focus on: Positive Change

Teacher: David

David Cooper, our very own F**k It Coach, entrepreneur and business guru leads this group session ‘How to solve any problem or issue – a simple process for positive change’.

We all have problems and worries that from time to time don’t seem to have any obvious solution. These can vary from minor issues involving loved ones to way more complex problems like money or career.

This step by step system works for you by asking yourself a set of specific questions that David will demonstrate for you. David believes that there is ALWAYS a best outcome and solution for any problem.

Once you have gained more clarity, this process will move you closer to finding your best outcome and easing your worry – in some cases instantly. Armed with this process to problem-solving any issue that life throws at you, you will no longer need to carry your worries around with you in a continuous spiral of ineffectiveness, leading to inevitable stress.

David will demonstrate this process with a live demo and if you want to – you’ll even get to try it out for yourself before you leave. As David quotes ‘Out of chaos, always comes clarity.’
