Two events coming up in April

Not meaning to wish March away as we have a very busy month of wonderful events, but I would like to bring your attention to two events in April.

International Senior MindScape Instructor Andy Spencer is offering a 2 day seminar that teaches you to unleash the latent creative and intuitive powers of your mind, utilising the latest discoveries in neuroscience and epigenetics. The principle of MindScape is a simple but effective one. There is a particular state of mind, the alpha state, that is more conducive to creativity and intuition than the normal brain function. The MindScape seminar will teach you an easy proven method to access this alpha state by slowing the brain down. Renowned geniuses such as Tesla, Edison, Einstein and Mozart were known to utilise this state to originate their ideas. The Alpha state is a natural state of the mind, that when we provide a structured framework to work in, we can open up our creativity and work with our intuition to expand our horizons.

We also have the first level of the Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Diploma starting on April 18th and 19th. If you would like to find out what it is all about, there is a taster at the end of this month. In the introduction to Ayurvedic Yoga Massage, you will learn how to give a shoulder, head and neck massage. The Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Institute Diploma is a dynamic fully practical bodywork qualification that teaches you all you need to know to confidently deliver an amazing full body floor based massage. Come and learn all about it.

Yoga does not remove us from the reality or responsibilities of everyday life but rather places our feet firmly and resolutely in the practical ground of experience.

We don’t transcend our lives; we return to the life we left behind in the hopes of something better.”
