Mind, body, miracles, magic and placebos

Next meeting: Wednesday April 24th         6.30 – 9.00pm

We meet once a month to enjoy mind-expanding conversations in a safe space with likeminded people. Come to ConsciousCafe to meet others and discuss the topic of the mind body connection and look at how we can create seemingly miraculous healing in our lives.

We’ll look at the power of the mind and explore the magic of placebos and affirmations.

Philip Tucker will act as a catalyst for this subject – he is a coordinator of Brighton Health Freaks and has had a life time interest in all areas of health and well being.

Cost £7.00 if paid in advance or £10 on the door. Refreshments provided.

A Journey to Strength and Flexibility  

A Yoga Day Workshop with Joanna Fiakkas

Saturday 11th of May 10am – 4.30pm

This day will focus on building on strength, increasing flexibility and discovering the experience of balancing the two within our practice.

We will explore the balance between strengthening in order to become softer and more open and increasing flexibility so that we find more stability and support. How we experience our bodies is reflected in how we meet and work with the outside, as well as how we work with our own selves on an energetic and emotional level.

The whole day will be an integration of all these aspects with the morning being more physical and active and the afternoon taking a more inwards step and slowing down. This will allow us to pay attention to ourselves more closely through the use of pranayama and meditation practices.

Jo is a qualified BWY teacher and has been teaching yoga since 2008 and practising since 1999. She places a strong emphasis on the breath and its connection to movement as well as its connection and impact emotionally and mentally. She has a particular interest in the philosophical underpinnings of yoga and how these can enhance physical and breathing practices as well as chanting and meditation.
