November 2017 newsletter

Hello  – Where did October go???

We are well and truly into Autumn and the horse chestnut trees outside the yoga studios are looking gorgeous! October was busy in many ways and also because our second therapy room was being finished.

It is a lovely space, and with more room we can offer more therapies. If you are interested in joining us as a therapist and using our therapy rooms please email me. If you are interested in receiving therapies check out our therapies page!

I would like to welcome Setsuko Susuki who does Yu-ki Energy Therapy and Reiki and is joining us from November (more below).

I would also like to welcome Bonnie Bloxham to the centre who will be teaching Power Yoga on Tuesday mornings 9:30 – 10:30am starting on Tuesday 7th November.

As ever, the details are below and in the calendar – please check it!

With best wishes from Sharon and all the teachers and therapists at Dorchester Yoga and Therapy Centre

Setsuko Susuki and Yu-ki Energy Therapy and Reiki

After graduating from university in Japan I worked in a big financial organization for a while. Although I enjoyed the life of a busy young professional, I felt that something important was missing from my life.

I was amazed to discover that animals can heal themselves naturally, without going to school or reading any books, and I realized that this was something I wanted to bring into my own life.

I decided to come to the UK to study aromatherapy and massage therapy, and I got my ITEC Diploma in 1999. Through that course I learned to sense the energy in people’s bodies, so for my next step I chose to study oriental diagnosis, followed by remedial massage, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Reflexology, and Shiatsu. As a result of these and other courses I was able to establish myself as a successful full-time practitioner.

The success of this led to my physical breakdown in 2002! I started to focus on myself, trying many different therapies all of which helped broaden me as a therapist including spiritual healing. In order to practice spiritual healing, in 2003 I joined the National Federation of Spiritual Healers (the biggest non-religious healing organization in the UK), and then took a 5-term healing course at the College of Psychic Studies. At the same time I explored several different schools of Reiki.

Eventually I made a dramatic recovery and found that deeper work such as that done in Yu-ki energy helps more naturally and yet more powerfully. That is why I have such a strong desire to help other people in this way.
