Eastern Movement Medicine For Modern Life Workshop

5th August


The Loft, Upper Gardener Street, Brighton


Join us for a workshop designed to free the body, refresh the mind and give you an insight into how ancient eastern health and wellbeing systems can be utilised in modern, everyday life.

Moving Stretch & Meridians: Using stretches from the Moving Stretch system, you will be lead through a specific sequence of movements designed to target each meridian, allowing the energy systems in the body to flow as they should. Moving Stretch is a niche system that is revolutionising the way people think about stretching and is currently gaining a lot of attention in the national press. David is one of the few people in the UK qualified to teach this unique form of resistance stretching that targets the fascia, connective tissue that holds the body together. He is also an experienced Reiki practitioner and Functional Range Conditioning specialist. Meridians are derived form the ancient Chinese Medicine tradition.

Yoga & The Chakra System: The second half of the workshop provides a journey through the Chakra system, derived from India. These various ‘wheels’ within the subtle body hold a huge amount of energy, and whether they are functioning fully or not, is very much linked to how we feel, and how we act and react in day to day life. Using specific postures, breathing techniques and movements which target the different chakras, we’ll balance the body, and cultivate a healthier, happier mind to live with. Emma is a Yoga teacher, therapist, published writer, and trustee of the Brighton Yoga Foundation. Currently based in Sussex, she co-leads international retreats, teacher trainings, and lectures on Yoga philosophy and Ayurveda.

You’ll also receive healthy snacks, tea, and information to take away with you about the meridians, the chakra system, and how to use this knowledge in every day life. Please wear comfortable clothing. To book, please contact / 07841373308
