"The morning meditations on Nev’s Bala Brook retreat were a revelation, finally I get what it’s about. I found his approach to the posture classes challenging but safe with an incremental build up to more difficult positions. Amazing views on the Dartmoor walks and great food !"

Thai Massage

Thai Massage

Thai massage is a unique and potent massage which variously combines massage techniques, acupressure, joint manipulations and stretches dependant on individual need. It's very diverse with no set routine or approach; it could be quite dynamic with movement and stretches or very quiet with a focus on just one main area of need. It's carried out on a futon mattress with pillow supports. Heating or cooling balms or oils and/or heated herbal compresses are often used to support the massage process . As well as being beneficial for aches and pains and misalignments, the deep relaxation induced by Thai massage can be deeply relieving, restful, and healing.

Yoga

Yoga

Yoga is an ancient yet living and evolving collection of practices linked to physical, mental and spiritual development. Its theory base includes ideas and principles relating to health, fitness, psychology and spirituality. Yoga recognises that health and being at ease with oneself is a multilayered process. My teaching explores the main contemporary practices in yoga of asana (postures), pranayama (breathing practices), body centring and meditation as a creative means to bring ourselves to a place of calm, quiet and inner exploration. It is not complicated in one sense , but there is much to explore ! Appreciation of all that it has to offer takes time and practice.
