This session will centre around the second niyama Santosha which translates to contentment/ satisfaction. The focus will be around practicing gratitude by drawing attention to the many treasures and blessings in our lives. A guided flow will connect love and kindness, both towards ourselves and those around us, and enrich our sense of gratitude and contentment for the present moment. The session will conclude with a little exercise where participants write down 3 things that they are grateful for in this life.
11.30am Soften & Surrender
Charlie and Grace will guide you through a beautifully sequenced practice inviting you to let go, breathe and surrender. Explore the power of allowing yourself to soften, noticing how easily and fluidly the breath moves through you. Loosen your grip on life, let go of resistance. Surrender to your inner wisdom and allow all aspects of your body, mind and soul to soften, opening you up to the infinite possibilities of your life.

5.00pm Pilates & Autogenic Relaxation
Whilst Pilates does have a focus on posture, most of the chakras are aligned along the spine and so correct alignment will help to open up the chakras for enhanced movement of energy. The Autogenic relaxation consists of exercises that make your body feel warm, heavy and relaxed. You will begin by finding a comfortable position on the floor whilst the teacher instructs you to focus on different parts of your body whilst relaxing your breathing, encouraging you to visualize scenes that make you feel relaxed. As a Reiki Master Robbie has his own particular twist on this popular form of Pilates relaxation.
6.45pm Finish & Chakra Gift
Leave us feeling rejuvenated with a chakra gift to take home.
