Body Language
w/ Delice Headlam
Saturday 25/5/24
11.30am - 1.30pm


*What is somatic movement?*
Somatic movement is a practice that encourages intentional movement focusing on the internal experience guided by the breath and emotions to invite an exploration of free expression through movement, gestures and shapes.

This workshop has been curated to explore ways to disconnect the mind and connect to the nervous system to help focus on the internal experience. This will aid in the process of instinctively tuning in to what feels good and what doesn’t, invite a sense of play with different movements and encourage an openness to communicate with others through non-verbal cues.

This is not an extended yoga asana workshop - but a movement workshop that invites you to get explorative and creative in your body. As a movement facilitator Delice will be combining her knowledge of mindfulness, kinesiology and dance to create a warm space for everyone all to connect to themselves and extend that into a group process.


*About this experience*
• ·Guided breathwork to reset the nervous system
• Move from intuition
• Creatively express emotions 
• Group processing that invites deep conversations with self & others

Delice is a multi-dynamic movement facilitator with knowledge as a body focused psychotherapist, yoga teacher and fitness coach. The idea of encapsulating the human experience of inner connectivity and self-discovery, Delice focuses on combining the principles of kinesiology, psychodynamic therapy and yoga philosophy
This entails movement, mindfulness, creative wellness and cognitive reflection for mental and emotional learning.

Transformational Breathwork
w/ Craig Norris

Saturday 1/6/24

Transformational Breathwork is a therapeutic breathing technique that relieves tension and stress. Through circular breathing you can tap into and cleanse yourself of deeply buried obstacles. It is a healing process that can help you to feel alive and free.

This workshop combines Breathwork with a variety of mindfulness techniques to allow deeper self awareness and personal growth. You will be invited to work with internal challenges and obstacles in a way that enables healing and transformation.

Every session can have vast differences in terms of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual experiences. Some people recollect forgotten or repressessed memories, some have emotional traumas from the past emerge and be released.

At the end of a session many individuals are left with solutions or answers to existing problems, others state they experience visitations from their deceased relatives or hear a spiritual connection that gives clear guidance. When a person is completely emerged in the breathwork experience, they feel like the breath is breathing them rather than visa versa.

These conditions are contraindicated for this style of Breathwork:

* Pregnancy

* Detached Retina

* Glaucoma

* High Blood Pressure (not controlled with medication)

* Cardiovascular disease including angina, previous heart attack or stroke.

* Diagnosis of aneurysm in the brain or abdomen

* Uncontrolled thyroid conditions and diabetes

* Asthma - if you are asthmatic, you are welcome to attend providing you bring your inhaler to the session.

* Epilepsy

* Prior diagnosis of bipolar disorder, schizophrenia or previous psychiatric condition.

* Hospitalisation for any psychiatric condition or emotional crisis within the last 10 years.

* Any other medical, psychiatric or physical conditions which would impair or affect ability to engage in any activities that involve intense physical and/or emotional release.


If this applies to you and you would like to engage with Breathwork, a 121 with gentler forms would be beneficial.
