Meditation: A Shift in Perception

Hosted by: Louise Reader
Time & date: 19th Feb at 18:00 to 19:00 (4 week block)
Hosted at: The Body Matters, Business Land, 8 Madeira Ave, Southend on Sea, SS9 3EB
Price: £50pp 4 week block

Do you love the idea of meditation, but are not really sure if it’s for you? Have you tried meditation in the past, but didn’t feel it ‘worked’? Shift your perception in 2019, with my brand-new meditation classes.

You might be surprised to know that when it comes to meditation, there are a variety of methods and approaches.  What works for one person may not work for another. So let’s work together, and discover the perfect meditation techniques for you.

In my classes, you will learn:

  • Simple methods that allow you to fit meditation and/or relaxation easily into your life
  • A deeper understanding about life, and who you really are
  • How to empower yourself to lead a happier, more relaxed life
  • Clarity and wisdom gained from my many years of training and experience

My approach is friendly, practical and down-to-Earth, while my aim is to make you feel as safe and comfortable as possible – even if you have never tried meditation before.

I will be holding four classes, held weekly.  To ensure a truly personal approach, spaces are limited to eight people per class. 

So don’t miss out – if you are interested, please sign up early!

Release and Restore - The Myofascial Mobilisation Class

Hosted by: Kristin Loeer
Time & date:  28th February 19:15 to 20:45
Hosted at: The Body Matters, Business Land, 8 Madeira Ave, Southend on Sea, SS9 3EB
Price: £15pp

This popular class will mobilise and relax your socks off. You will be guided through some simple breathing and relaxation exercises to calm your system, find focus and tune into the state of your connective tissue. We often believe our muscles to be tight and try to stretch them off. Yet we do not seem to get much effect from all the stretching. Most of the time it is actually the fascia that our muscles are wrapped up in that is tight and inflexible and makes us feel stiff, achy and immobile. This class will take you through a range of release and mobilisation exercises that will reach and target your connective tissue in ways you never have been able to with conventional stretches and exercises. You will find these movements and releases comfortable, satisfying, relaxing. Afterwards, you will feel powerfully different as you experience a much healthier state of your connective tissue all around and through your body. Everyone is welcome. 

If you suffer from injuries or health conditions contact Kristin for advice if this class is suitable for you.

Testimonials from previous classes:

"Thank you very much again for your wonderful class on Friday. I think I got more release in those 90 minutes than from any other therapy session over the last 3 years. So I'm very keen to return." Gerald H.

"I feel great after the workshop. I had a very stiff shoulder and hip before and they are both much better. Even having gone to a gig last night and standing for hours which usually means a very painful hip the following day!" Kate K.
