 With Spring well and truly underway it’s time to give your body and mind a Spring Clean.  Jess will lead you through a carefully curated 2 hr yoga sequence to build up some inner heat, helping to release toxins from the body.  The sequence will be well balanced to open the whole body with an emphasis on twists leaving you with a feeling of clarity in mind and body.   We will open the energetic pathways which will prepare you perfectly for your Transformation Breath® session with Ella. 

 Transformational Breath®

 During our 2.5-hour Introduction to Transformational Breath® session we will look at the importance of the breath on our physical, mental/emotional and spiritual wellbeing. We will explore how the breath is often overlooked and yet by learning to open up, utilise and truly harness the power of our breathing we can access better health and wellbeing, support detoxification and optimal physical functioning, rid ourselves of mental and emotional baggage and feel a deep sense of peace, calm and relaxation.   If you have tried breathwork and think you know what you are in for, prepare to have your expectations well and truly shaken up!

 Meditation and Reiki Drum

 After our amazing journey with our breath Jess will lead us through a lovely meditation accompanied by the healing Reiki Drum to help ground us and ready to face the world feeling lighter and brighter!   Meditation is becoming a more familiar part of our modern society for the many benefits it has on health, wellbeing and that ability to cope with the stresses of life.  This ancient art, the jewel of our yoga practice makes our day of detoxification complete.   The Reiki Drum will support our practice by providing a deeply soothing and meditative beat that provides healing rhythms to help us getting deeper into our meditation whilst providing us with an extra layer of letting go of that which no longer serves us.   A truly magical combination to end the day.

Juice Detox

We will provide a welcome and lunch time juice as part of the detox for your body.   The juices provided have been carefully selected to help support and maximise the cleansing effect of the practices you will take part in throughout the day.   Please let us know if you have any allergies.

Coming from a background in law and setting up several of her own businesses, Ella was particularly aware of the day to day clarity of thought, relaxation, stress management and energising effects of Transformational Breath® as well as its ability to deeply heal.  She sees clients for one to one sessions at her home in Hertfordshire and at the Physical Health Clinic in Moorgate, London.
