MOVEMENT AND BREATHING
04 March 2019 | 11:45am - 1pm
We can live for weeks without food, days without water but only minutes without air. Despite that, the importance and the impact that breathing has on our life are generally overlooked.
As a society, we are extremely aware of the effects that poor quality and/or excessive quantity of foods and drinks have on our health and wellbeing. However, somehow we pay very little attention to the quality and quantity of our breathing. If we consider how much and how often we breathe, we will agree that it is a good idea to do it right.
The purpose of this talk is to delve in the relationship between our physiology and our breathing, to understand how this relationship, if dysfunctional, can badly affect not only our respiration, but also our nervous system, our metabolism and predispose to pain and restriction across our body.
During this workshop we will explore the relationship between posture, movement and breathing.

CHANGES AND CHOICES
10 March 2019 | 10am - 12pm, £50
Working with what you have now – not with what you had yesterday or even a moment ago - recognising the law of impermanence.
Change is inevitable and occurs constantly all around us. Do we fight and resist change ? Do we fear change ? Do we embrace change? How do you feel about change – mentally, emotionally and physically?
Keeping a state of equanimity and appreciation for change, can open us to the choices we have.
Our bodies are not the same from moment to moment, day to day, year to year. We cannot stop the process of ageing maturing, and possibly finding ourselves hampered with new physical constraints to work through. However, we can have an impact. We ought to do what we can, to support ourselves, to age gracefully
This workshop will look at ways to accept and understand changes within our bodies. We will appreciate that 'this moment' is the only place, where we can truly live.
From 4 March 2019 | 7pm - 8:15pm, £30
Suzanne dedicates this class to people who strife to get and or maintain balance in their lives. People who work/live/run households under high demands and pressure. People that understand that a holistic approach to health and well-being is vital. This class will help to dampen cortisol and adrenaline and it will help to enhance DHEA, Acetylcholine, Serotonin, Oxytocin and endorphins. All essential for healing, homeostasis in mind-and body. I will help and guide you to ‘let go’ by being present in your breath/stretch and movements. You will experience deep relaxation, followed by a calm disposition where you will feel grounded and have a sense of vitality and confidence. At times we all need to schedule time for ‘inner balance’ to enable life outside to become manageable and even enjoyable.

Our bodies can store our feelings as muscular memory. Over time, feelings can shape the way we hold and move our bodies.
In this fast paced world, we spend so much time 'in our heads’ and we can easily forget, how to ‘feel’. We can lose the ability to look within, and neglect to listen to the all the important messages, therein.
Only when we begin to express our feelings, and become in tune with our whole -self, can we regain balance and health. We are all vulnerable at time. Do you allow yourself to feel vulnerable and can you articulate and share that vulnerability? Or is ‘that feeling’ suppressed and disguised all the time?
We will work towards releasing negative patterns. We will understand how these muscular memories, can be released through movement and mindfulness, freeing us to create positive changes and to find new energy in our lives.
