Meditation + Reiki

Meditation is more a journey of present moment experience with enhanced health, wellbeing and life enjoyment in all areas of your life, rather than just something that you have to force yourself to do when you feel stressed out. 

Reiki is a natural healing energy that relaxes you, brings you deeper levels of peace, removes fears, and puts you on your highest path to health, happiness, love, joy and success.  

Reiki meditation with Higher Frequency are classes designed to relax you, releasing your stress, tension and anxieties, develop your ability to find your inner stillness, peace and connect to miraculous ideas and resolutions. You’ll come away feeling reset for peace, deeper love, ease, calm, clarity and by regular attendance you will feel empowered, confident and really successful…we all have huge success and good health in us…even if we don’t always realise it or ‘think’ it’s possible!

This class detaches from thoughts and chaos on Tuesdays 11:30am-12:30pm

Yoga

Yvonne Bradley 01782 750178

Yoga can help you to improve your physical health, tone your muscles and internal organs, relieve inner tension, reduce weight and strengthen your bones. But it not only works on your body, it also guides you towards relaxation and shows you how to become more balanced, centred and calm. It is a whole-life philosophy that teaches that attaining control over the body is the key to controlling the mind. Mastering the art of relaxation and learning how to breathe ‘properly’ are two of the most important aspects of yoga. Once you have mastered these skills, you will experience a positive, healthy outlook on life. Each week on Monday from 7-8.30pm and Thursday from 10-11.30am.
