Welcome…

We’re moving forwards…the last 6 months or so have been challenging, uncertain, possibly scary…We’re now into autumn, with winter approaching.  There’s never been a better time to pause and consider what you can do to boost your wellbeing.

I am delighted to be offering in-person classes again, along with one to one private sessions, and workshops (in person and via Zoom).  Take good care of yourself – mind, body, soul – welcome back!

At the Birch Moon Resilience & Wellbeing Centre we come together in community, to practice gentle holistic yoga, meditation and healing chant.  We learn about positive psychology, and cultivate resilience and wellbeing for positive change.   Offering weekly classes, monthly workshops, retreats and courses, beginners to experienced students are all supported.

All our sessions are now available both IN PERSON (with full government guidelines implemented), and simultaneously through the online platform Zoom (easy to join, no subscription fee needed).

Our door is open and a warm welcome awaits.

See below for a NEW Workshop (Deepening Connection) – Yoga Classes – and an Exciting Announcement...

Well, I have to start with my Exciting announcement! 

I have been accepted as a Weleda Wellbeing Advisor – and this is a perfect fit for me and the wellbeing services I currently offer.  Since 1921 Weleda have been offering sustainable and organic health and beauty products.  With so many brands claiming to be natural, organic and sustainable it is important to know exactly what you are buying.  Weleda have been growing and creating natural medicines and body care products for almost 100 years.

Funnily enough I’ve been using Weleda products for nearly 40 years!  Ranging from their medicinal and homeopathy range, to their dental products, to non-chemical deodorants and of course skin care products – so I’m a long-time happy customer who absolutely LOVES their ethical standards.

All the skin care products are natural and organic, with over 80% of their plant-based ingredients grown organically and independently certified by NATRUE.  Weleda are just one of a few cosmetic companies to be accepted for the Union for Ethical Bio Trade certification.  Multi-award winning, good for you, good for our producers and growers, and most certainly good for our planet!

Did you know?  60% of what we put on our skin is absorbed into our body – from cleanser and moisturiser to hair products and even toothpaste.  Sunscreen and body oils and deodorants…hmmm, I know what I’ve chosen…Time to Switch?

Gentle Holistic Yoga  – The Power of Slow.

Your students are getting QUALITY TEACHING from you and I think they really appreciate your breadth of experience and wide ranging techniques with a real emphasis on caring for self. I have learnt a lot!  – Pam J, BWY teacher, Bristol.

With multiple Yoga classes available each week – Chi Yoga, Holistic Yoga, Yoga Flow & Meditation and the Restorative “Chill Zone” – there’s something to suit everyone here at the Birch Moon Resilience & Wellbeing Centre. From beginners to experienced, those with health issues and those looking to practice traditional, therapeutic yoga – take a positive step to create your own wellbeing.

Build strong immune and respiratory function:  all our classes this winter have an emphasis on using yoga practices to ensure you are taking the best care of yourself that you can.  Physically working to open the rib cage and intercostal muscles (greater capacity to breathe well), oxygenate all your cells through pranayama (breathing practices) to ensure optimum health, and in turn boost your immune system.

NEW!  When you sign up for the yoga courses, you also have access to our growing library of wellbeing podcasts.  New episodes are uploaded regularly from relaxation to meditation, short energising yoga practices to a soothing bedtime routine – these are short and easy to fit into your busy schedule.  During lockdown we started our popular monthly “Yoga Cafe (in person or online) – grab your coffee, maybe a croissant and make new friends.  A short yoga and wellbeing inspired talk is included. 

For our current yoga and meditation class schedule, courses and costs see  HERE.

Deepening Connection – an afternoon workshop

Creating and developing a deeper connection to yourself and others at this time is so important for our mental, physical and emotional health.  Our monthly “Sound & Silence” session is slightly extended to include practices from healing chant, Ayurveda, and yoga to create a palpable sense of connection.  As within – so without.

This is a offered both In-person AND simultaneously via Zoom for those that cannot/prefer not to meet in person.
