Led by Amelie, who is also journeying along the path to recovering her health after decades of chronic illness due to mould, lyme & physical injury. She incorporates many of the practices she has learnt on her journey that have taken her from being bedbound to now being physically active and enjoying much better health and happiness. She shares many tips and tricks that you can implement into your daily healing routine that switch you from "fight or flight" mode and into "rest & digest" healing mode, allowing you to move further along your own path to better health and happiness.
What to expect:
We begin by releasing our worries, fears or anything we wish to let go of and shaking off that uneasy energy before doing a grounding visualisation exercise to help our mind & body know it’s safe and can come out of fight or flight mode. We focus on a few minutes of breath work before beginning the movement portion of the class with some gentle stretches and yoga poses (all seated or reclined on the floor and a couple on hands and knees if you can manage. *if you are unable to sit cross legged on the floor then you will be guided to do modified versions whilst seated in a chair, on your couch or on the edge of your bed).
We take a break from movement in the middle of the session and practice EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) tapping to help redirect our brains focus and calm our worried little amygdalas.
We then do some more gentle stretches before tension release and lymphatic exercises, a smidge of Qi Gong and some vagus nerve stimulation before wrapping it all up with a chat at the end where we have the opportunity to discuss what’s challenging us and share what’s working for us in our healing journeys.
Set aside an hour, but if the convo takes off at the end then you may wish to stick around a little longer.
