During a small group session you will be able to:
* try out a variety of set-ups to find what is best suited for your body;
* experience gentle assists to further facilitate relaxation, release and grounding and promote a state of deep rest;
* experience facilitated psoas release movements and set-ups which cannot be effectively offered in a large workshop;

* enjoy a long and delicious relaxation at the end of the session, enhanced by essential oils.

The group will be kept really small up to 6 people for personalised attention and lots of personal space, but will be big enough to enjoy the group energy.

What others say: “For a long time now I felt pain in my hip, particularly noticeable when getting out of the car. After the session I noticed an immediate relief as well as a sense of standing straighter, walking with freedom and lightness and feeling a deep sense of overall relief from tension. I don’t remember the last time I felt so peaceful!” – Barbara, Wellington
