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.
6.00pm Moon Salutations & Healing Meditation
Whilst Sun salutations are a great way to energise the body first thing in the morning & increases the vital energy, Moon Salutations (Chandra Namaskar) help you to channel the lunar energy which has a cooling and relaxing quality whilst simultaneously stretching the spine, hamstrings, and backs of the legs. They are especially nice to do in the evening as the meditative, calming quality of the poses helps to form a stronger connection to the breath, preparing the body and the mind for a guided meditation. Robbie’s chakra meditation draws on the earth’s energies for increased vitality, wellbeing and a peaceful, quiet mind by working to achieve the optimum level of balance and relaxation ready for a peaceful night’s sleep.
6.45pm Finish & Chakra Gift
Leave us feeling rejuvenated with a chakra gift to take home.
