Program

Meditation

No matter what your age, meditation is one of the easiest ways to improve your health. Research at the Medical College of Georgia found that meditation lowered blood pressure and reduced the risk of heart disease and stroke. Additional studies have demonstrated meditation can reduce chronic pain, decrease levels of stress and pain in cancer patients, and reduce symptoms in patients with fibromyalgia.

Other studies have indicated meditation may reduce the levels of cortisol, a hormone that in high levels can weaken the immune system and slow down healing. Results from a small study conducted in 1998 with patients suffering from psoriasis lesions indicated meditation can speed up the body’s natural healing process. Some studies have even suggested meditation can help in the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. Carole is a qualified meditation teacher. Her teaching methodology is to ‘keep it simple’ starting at the basics and then progressing at an achievable pace.

What is Restorative yoga?

Restorative yoga gives you the time in asana (pose) to open the body with the use of supportive props and correct energetic action. Classes also include pranayama (breathwork) to encourage an even deeper state of awareness.

Benefits:

  • Balances the hormonal (endocrine) system
  • Soothes the nervous system
  • Replenishes our energy system
  • Tones reproductive organs (both for women and men)
  • Promotes healthy menstruation, pre-and post-menopause
  • Calms the mind and encourages mindfulness, helping to relieve mild anxiety
  • Nourishes the digestive system
  • Restorative poses will leave you feeling nourished and well-rested. These classes are a means of allowing you to just ‘stop and be’
  • These poses support you and allow you to relax the grip on whatever your minds and bodies are holding tightly so that you can rest, renew, and build vitality
  • From Caroline’s yoga teaching experience - the less you do the more powerful and transformational your practice will be.

Juice cleanse (Optional) - please advise at time of enrolment if you’d like to do the cleanse

The juice cleanse is by far the most important food for the day. It contains all the base living nutrients that your body needs to naturally clean, repair, maintain, and energize your body. Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are the heart of the cleanse process. It is from fresh fruits and vegetables that we get the most potent living nutrients that are responsible for repairing, cleaning, and rejuvenating the body.
