A weekend to de-stress and restore. To heal means to become sound or healthy again, alleviating stress or anguish. A combination of dynamic and relaxing yoga and sound healing alongside a hot tub, sauna and healthy food set in the countryside.
A humble cottage and barns set down a winding mountain road in the remote Olchon Valley, this modern-rustic location is surrounded soul-stirring views of the Brecon Beacons and majestic Black Mountains.
It is about a 3.5 hour drive from Chesham and London. There is plenty of parking.
More information will be given upon booking.

Sound Healing with Kate Raggett
What is sound healing and how does it work?
“Sound healing is the therapeutic application of sound frequencies to the body/mind of a person with the intention of bringing them into a state of harmony and health”. Simon Heather, College of Sound Healing.
Sound healing is the use of a wide range of sounds (generated from sound healing instruments such as gongs, crystal singing bowls and pyramids, drums, rattles, tuning forks, wind chimes and ting sha etc) and the human voice to activate healing within a person’s soul, mind and body. The individual vibrations and frequencies created by each instrument and sound is directed around the person (who lies fully clothed on a healing couch/floor) along with the specific intent to heal. Working on the accepted scientific understanding that all things vibrate at their own frequency, sound is used to clear any blocked vibrations in the body/mind by the method of entraining the blocked frequency to adjust to a new more balanced resonance, thereby assisting that person in their own healing.
A sound healing/bath can be deeply relaxing to experience and often people can fall asleep during the treatment or sound bath. Along with many different sounds that may be created there will be a period of silence to allow integration of the sounds received. It is important to drink lots of water after a treatment or sound bath to allow the healing to be processed and any blockages to be released.
Rudolph Steiner said "There will come a time when a diseased condition will not be described as it is today by physicians and psychologists, but it will be spoken of in musical terms, as one would speak of a piano that was out of tune."

Yoga Strength Workshop with Issi Lancaster
A workshop for all abilities to increase your yogic strength.
In this workshop we will look at basic asanas (positions) that will gradually build strength including a strong shoulder girdle, a sturdy core and a peaceful mind.
We often think of strength in a physical way but yogic strength is also mental, emotional, and spiritual. Yoga is a journey or inner discovery and the path of strength is certainly a way to discover yourself. The key to building strength is humble, consistent practice of these basics asanas to find peace and fluidity.
