REST Yoga Escape Day

November 17, 10am to 4.30pm

Women's Winter Yoga Day Esacpe 




We have designed this deeply nourishing winter workshop for you - a day of yoga: body, breath, sound, meditation, including elements of Thai yoga massage and Family Constellations, in order to bring deep held tension safely to awareness, encouraging release, and healing for your body and mind.

Allow us to hold a space where you can deeply relax and nurture yourself during the colder winter months.

​Teas and healthy organic snacks provided.

​Reviews from women who attended previous REST days:

'A deeply nourishing safe space to simply be.  Somewhere to tune out of the rush of every-day life and have a moment to look after yourself. A time to fill your cup so you can go back to filling others. Every woman should do this, especially those who mother!'

'A very relaxing day in a place where you can feel safe and understand by others.'

'Day of escape from the crazy but beautiful world of motherhood!! Just what I needed and sure other women would value and appreciate something like this too! It was perfect and right timing for me as it was what my mind, body and soul needed :)) Gave me time to just relax and reflect on so much time absorbed on giving... It was a lovely day and can't thank you all enough for being there. Thank you & Namaste'

'A day just to stop and take stock, rest and be nurtured, surrounded by like-minded women.'

The day will be led by Leonie Taylor, Senior Vajrasati yoga teacher with over a decade of experience, 500 + hour Yoga Alliance accreditation and Thai Yoga Therapist; and Janee Swan, Thai Yoga Massage therapist, Family Constellator and yoga teacher in training.

There will be a lunch break where you can either enjoy a light meal at a recommended lovely local cafe  or optional bringing your own lunch to eat inside the comfortable venue with others (if you would prefer to stay in our quiet held space.)


Family Constellations - Morning Workshop

November 23,  9.30am – 1.00pm

Come and be part of a morning exploring Family Constellations in an environment of safety, openness and discovery.

Family Constellations is a way of working together as a group in which people will become representatives for either someone’s family members or other significant aspects of their life. Very easily and quickly we can start to embody qualities, feelings and sensations that start to bring to life a snapshot of the underlying issues and entanglements of that particular family history. This provides new insight and a powerful potential for healing and release for the person who is receiving the constellation as well as everyone else who is present in the room.

By creating a “living map” of the situation, simple but hidden truths and dynamics can be revealed and understood, giving new insight and opportunities for change and movement.

It can actually be about any aspect of our life, even though our family of origin is often seen as the primary system in which we are rooted. But the constellation can also focus on our work, relationships, finances, personal projects or any significant thing that you would like to unravel and understand a bit more of its inner mystery.

Family Constellations can be described as a form of 'soul work' and it is a powerful method for finding resolutions to the things that we want to change or understand better. It can have a profound impact on our lives and it opens us up to the 'unseen field' of interconnections and ancestral influences, yet it is always very grounded in the felt experience of everyone present.

If you are feeling that something is wanting to shift within you or you're just curious about this work then come along. There is no need to have attended any constellation events previously.

Facilitator: Mark Reeves, Dip, MA has trained in Family and Systemic Constellations at The Centre for Systemic Constellations. He has also been running groups and courses in self-awareness, mindfulness & emotional intelligence for over 20 years. He is a transpersonal psychotherapist and counsellor and runs a private counselling and coaching practise in Brighton.

Introduction to the Alexander Technique - Morning Workshop

November 30,  10am – 1.00pm



Finding Yoga in Acroyoga

Workshops with Giulia and Lauren

November 30 - 1:30pm to 6pm


Ever wondered about the Yoga part of AcroYoga? It's something we are both passionate about, being both Yoga & AcroYoga teachers, so we are thrilled to be presenting an all-level AcroYoga Workshop on Saturday 30th November on how these two beautiful practices can be intertwined.

The workshop will be split into two parts, the first 2 hours will start with a vinyasa warm up, partner exercises, handstands, Acro sun salutations, and linking postures. We will work in a safe and accessible way, in teams of 3, rotating as base, flyer and spotter. In the second session, we will start with some partner Yoga and continue to explore AcroYoga positions, building sequences and finishing with an exchange of Thai massage. Both sessions will have different content and will be designed to be taken together, but you are also able to join one session.

All level means that beginners are very welcome and will be looked after, but we also have lots of options to make the content more intermediate, depending on your experience. It would be ideal if you have had experience of some yoga classes previously.

Come and join a fun filled Saturday full of laughter and lifting! No partner needed!
