We are Shanti Bee, a registered C.I.C. & community well being space in Byker, Newcastle upon Tyne offering holistic health activities including yoga, restorative practices, massage and other complementary health therapies.
We offer affordable services because health is wealth and should not only be a luxury. We also offer customised well being activities for organisations, groups and a bespoke ‘Healing Area’ at Lindisfarne Festival and an organisational partnership scheme Friends of Shanti Bee, allowing us to offer bespoke sessions for hard to reach communities.
Shanti Bee started as a way to support health practitioners in Newcastle upon Tyne provide their services to local communities.
Since then we’ve built links with local authorities, charities, business, health & employment services and universities across the North East.
As a group, we organise activities with an emphasis on health and wellbeing.
As practitioners we are all self-employed. As a C.I.C., everyone involved in the running of the organisation is voluntary – therefore please bare with us if our response is not immediate.
Our values are at the root of everything we do.
In an essence we are a group of caring individuals all drawn to making holistic health accessible.
We, like everyone, are learning as we go and whilst these values are consistent and rooted, we are also flexible.
We hope the organisation develops along side those communities who access it.
Community is at the heart of everything we do. Where would be without each other?
With our activities we hope to inspire, support and empower people to explore holistic health lifestyle choices; improving quality of life and therefore our interactions with one and other.
We value and respect each person as an independent individual who has the power to explore their own wellbeing choices.
We respect and value diversity.
We hold a space that is inclusive to all. We strive to always include people who might otherwise be excluded from, or experience barriers to, accessing wellbeing services.
Shanti Bee is committed to making holistic health accessible. Specifically aiming to provide services that support those at risk of, or suffering from, mental health illnesses and social isolation.
We aspire to fairness between all.
We have complete respect for anyone inside and outside of Shanti Bee
Our actions stem from our ethical principles. We are open and transparent in our actions.
As a Community Interest Company we have a commitment to our community and we will honour that in any way we can.
