Awakening The Dancer In You

Come into deeper alignment and intuitive knowing of your SELF

In this workshop with mindfully selected music and gentle facilitation,  we will explore 3 main dimensions to support your inner dance landscape:

The Tree of Life – Our vertical connection to the ground beneath us (our roots). The Trunk (Torso & Spine). The Branches (our emanation out towards life and others).

Awakening the Dancer – Being able to feel and move into and from different parts of your body, exploring ranges of movement from small to big. Having awareness of personal areas that are less fluid and working to embrace these.

Breath – Connecting breath and movement, allowing and releasing the breath with and without motion.

Anyone in a body can do this, so that means YOU, take a deep breath. Your drum is calling you. Its rhythm is in your blood. To those of you who love to dance and those who never have, to those of you who used to dance and stopped, to those of you who believe you have 2 left feet, whoever you are, wherever you come from, however old you are, whatever you look like or the condition you come with, the spirit of dance is waiting for you. Go ahead, take a chance, wiggle your toes, DANCE! This aims to be the first of a succession of monthly workshops, it will be a small intimate group. A maximum of 10 people in order to support a sacred and safe space for our journey together.  Please email for more details if you feel the call. Come however you are, with a water bottle, a blanket, comfy layered clothing, and a Journal.

Hearts open when all co-create the soundscape together 

Welcome to a live soulful event with drumming, chanting, music making and being together!

Everyone has an opportunity to be fully engaged, invited to join with a voices and rhythms. Magdalena performs her music and skillfully  teaches her original chants and songs to the audience, gradually  introducing more instruments and more freedom of expression. She creates  a thriving environment, leading all to the community music making, full  of exuberant joy and healing.

Watch a video about Magdalena’s similar event – “Thrive” Interactive Concerts:

Magdalena has been sharing her events at festivals and retreats, always moving the audience deeply and allowing all to be the authentic, creative  and joyful!

Relax and reconnect with your heart; discover how to use journaling as a tool for self-discovery and compassion. Join us for a transformative in-person experience that will uplift your spirit and promote healing. Let Love Shine is a unique event that combines the power of meditation, tuning fork sounds and the therapeutic practice of journaling. This is a lovely way to enter a state of deep relaxation, allowing you to release stress and tension, and get clarity for any worries or life decisions you may be facing.

We’ll begin with writing exercises designed to promote self-reflection to gain clarity, and focus on a question that captures the support or guidance you’re looking for. Then you’ll be guided into a beautiful meditation journey accompanied by the healing sounds of tuning forks and percussion. Following the meditation, there will be time to note down any words that your guides or spirit animals have communicated to you.

Whether you are a seasoned journaler or new to the practice, this event is open to all. Blankets, cushions are provided, and you are welcome to bring your own to make sure you’re comfy and warm. Please bring a notepad or journal.

Reiki Share

The Japanese word ‘Reiki’ literally translates as universal life force energy. This system of healing was developed by Mikao Usui the early 20th century. It is a non-invasive complementary therapy that has been taught and used in the UK since the late 1900s, but Eastern medicine has for thousands of years worked with this energy, recognising its flow through all living things. Reiki supports orthodox medicine or can be used alone but is not a replacement for traditional medication or treatments. It is not based on any belief, faith or suggestion, yet, scientific research using quantum physics is starting to help us to understand how Reiki healing may work to benefit the individual. It has been suggested that in years to come it may be known as energy medicine based on scientifically measurable energy emitted from the practitioner’s hands.

A reiki share is a gathering to give and receive Reiki in a casual atmosphere of friendship, honour, positive energy and devotion.If you are new to Reiki and interested in joining please contact Karen. The class will be led by Reiki Masters Karen Giles and Wrio Russell. The Reiki Share is held every two months, the last Saturday of the month.

Vedic Chanting

Vedic chanting is a wonderful thing to do, and complements yoga practice beautifully: it helps to deepen our experience. The Veda-s are the amazing ancient teachings of India, in which you can see the beginnings of yoga. They are in Sanskrit, the language of yoga and of mantra, and go back thousands of years. (Passed on orally for a very long time, they were only written down about three thousand years ago). Chanting them helps with self-expression, and gives us joy…. and you don’t have to be able to sing! There are only 3 notes!
I have been fortunate enough to be learning this practice for over 30 years, and still have lessons with my teacher.
If you decide to continue, you will need to buy the book that has the chants we shall be using, but you wont need this to begin with.
Sarah  teaches the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali from 10.30-11.45am before this class, and the two are wonderful together as both are written in the ancient text of Sanskrit and complement each other.  Both are also the beginnings to our modern yoga practice. This class is a donations based class and all proceeds will go to the charity:
Practical Action 
Your gift will support people around the world in tackling their toughest challenges. Adapting to and withstanding the worst affects of climate change. Harnessing the transformational power of clean energy. Improving sanitation and living conditions in overcrowded cities. Recovering from the long term impact of the pandemic.

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra, probably composed around 2,000 years ago, are universally recognised as the classic teaching and ultimate authority on yoga. Amazingly, they are still completely relevant to our life and times.

They consist of 195 short aphorisms, because they were designed to be learned by heart. They therefore have to be explained and discussed with a teacher who has learned them with a teacher. Sarah Ryan has been studying the sutras for many years and has a wealth of information.Each session is a mix of teaching, discussion and practice, with one or two sutras studied in depth each week. It is not only very suitable for yoga teachers who can use it as In-Service Training, but also for any student who wants to know more about yoga.The ideas behind yoga practice are fascinating and extremely useful, helping us to better understand ourselves and our life. Do come and join us. These monthly meetings work as stand-alone sessions – you don’t have to have attend each month.

Sarah  teaches Vedic Chanting directly after this class at 12.00-1.00pm and the two are wonderful together as both are written in the ancient text of Sanskrit and complement each other as both are the beginnings to our modern yoga practice.
