Some feedback from our workshop;

Could not fault a thing..was a wonderful informative day, great company and great food..thank you Vanessa..must have another one😊 Sue B

Great as a taster to try things and get a sense of what they (the practitioners) offer, what resonates. Being outside was a critical part of the success of the day. Warm, inviting, non-judgemental environment. Karen

Tai Chi in action

Vil Kalivati

In this fast paced life, where sleepless nights and a mind that doesn’t  quieten is common. Come and learn a way to settle, re focus and re energise the body.

Breath work and Qi Gong are practices that are easily learnt that you can include in your daily routine.

Vil Kalivati will take you through a Breathwork and Qi Gong class. This class is designed as an introduction class into Breathwork and Qi Gong.

Scientific evidence supports the health benefits of Breathwork that positively affects the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous system, allowing you to handle stressful situations whether it is a family crisis or a life and death situation.   The workshop will include basic breathwork techniques that you can take away and include in your daily practices.

Likewise Qi Gong, the ancient Chinese exercises that detoxify  and rejuvenates your body promoting  long life health and wellbeing benefits have also been proven to be effective.

Vil has been practicing QI Gong and breathwork for 6 years but has a  40 year background in  health, fitness and Martial arts.

Mindfulness in nature

Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you’re sensing and feeling in the moment. Vanessa will, without interpretation or judgment, guide beginners and advanced participants in this session.

Sessions are led by Vanessa, a qualified teacher of Health & Wellbeing (BSc, PGCE). She is also an avid believer in nature helping you on your way back to a happier and healthier you.

Nature is the answer. A slower pace of life, a moment to yourself to breathe and recharge. Come and spend time on you. Have the undivided attention of Vanessa to steer you through the mindfulness process, whilst surrounded by nature here at Hewitts Homestead.

Mindfulness has been shown to lower stress levels, ease anxiety and calm the mind.
