    • Upcoming Workshops at shanti bee

      Breath of Life - Conscious Rebirthing Breathwork & Sound Healing

      Ongoing monthly dates please check @DiamondHeartNetwork
      For next few dates.

      "Breath of Life - Conscious Rebirthing Breathwork & Sound Healing' is a 3hr workshop led by Shakti Tracy.

      Conscious Rebirthing Breathing is a focussed breathing technique that creates an altered state of consciousness where deep healing, release, reprogramming and visioning work can be achieved. It can release traumas held in the physical body and help with conditions such as anxiety, low self-esteem and depression. Working with breath is a transformative process that can change our entire reality.
       

      Rosie's Mini Retreats

      6.30/7 -9 pm

      Monthly - please check the Facebook event or contact us for info.

      This evening is all about taking the idea of a yoga retreat and condensing it down into a couple of hours of retreating from the outside world into our little shanti bee cocoon. We use Restorative and Yin yoga, alongside guided meditation to move our awareness deep inside the body. When we do this we give ourselves the chance to even ‘retreat’ a little bit away from our logical, thinking and processing mind into a more present and peaceful state of consciousness.

      There are very simple physical techniques which we use to help us to tap into our ‘rest and digest’ mode, anyone and everyone has access to these tools, so anyone and everyone can feel the benefit of this kind of practice! Absolutely all levels of experience in yoga are more than welcome to come along, It’s an extremely slow paced and gentle approach.

      I love to curate beautiful playlists of music to help you along the way to feeling super relaxed and each evening will have different complimentary elements added in to make it a unique and really special experience.

      Afterwards we have time for tea, cake and chats, making the most of the lush little yin bubble of goodness we have created in the space!

      Shanti Fridays

      6.30 - 8.30 pm

      Twice a month we run Shanti Fridays.
      Check the FB event or contact us for info on whats up next.

      A valentines day treat - Info coming soon ♥

       

      20th March : Laughter Yoga with Jacquelynne Poutney
      Laughter yoga is laughing for no reason through playful exercises, movement, eye contact and a willingness to laugh. The body can’t tell the difference between real and initiated laughter and creates the same benefits. It’s called laughter yoga because of the combination of childlike playfulness and breathing.
