In this hectic world, where it is difficult to switch off, it is helpful to find a time to be still and quiet. The Deep Relaxation workshop creates a space to give yourself permission to stop and relax. Whether you have a stressful job, are a parent to young children, have trouble sleeping, are living with or recovering from illness, or for whatever reason you would like to relax and re-energise, this workshop will support you.
The session consists of some gentle yoga movements to relax the body, resting in a series of supported yoga postures, and a final yoga nidra (deep relaxation). You do not need any previous experience of yoga, but a willingness to let go! (Relaxation does not come naturally to everyone, but with practice can become second nature in all sorts of situations.) I will talk you through every step of the process and create a safe, supportive environment in the smaller, cosier room at this venue.
You will need to bring a blanket, two cushions or pillows, and wear comfortable clothing (layers are good). I provide yoga mats, eye pillows, and bolsters.
For many people, the relaxation at the end of a yoga class is their favourite part. So treat yourself to a total immersion! Please book your place here, places are limited.
(In the meantime, see Useful Resources, then Downloads, for some relaxing free audio downloads.)
"I attended Tessa's relaxation class last Saturday and have never felt so relaxed. I felt so wonderful all day and when I went out that evening I felt great all night too.
It was really lovely and a wonderful present to myself to spend this session with Tessa. Tessa is amazing at what she does and you feel really cared for from the beginning right through to the end of the session.
I am now determined to make time in my diary for more sessions and HIGHLY recommend these sessions." Tina, September 2014

"I tried the Deep Relaxation workshop, which was a wonderful experience and I'd strongly recommend it to everyone - it is a great way to get away from everyday hectic life for a few hours. I went with a friend of mine and we both felt amazing afterwards and for the rest of the weekend really :)" Timea, June 2015
