What is Acupuncture?
Our bodily energy (Qi/Prana) flows around the body along pathways called Meridian channels. These channels run through all tissues & organs in the body (This workshop will focus on Lung & Colon Meridians and Energy).
Stress, trauma, overwork, injury, parental-conditioning and diet are common elements that can block or impair our vital flow of energy.
In acupuncture, needles are placed at specific points on the Meridians where Qi collects and disperses from. The practitioner directs the Qi to relieve stagnation (pain), invigorate weak flow of Qi and to maintain a healthy flow of vital energy all over the body.

AJ is an internationally qualified Yoga Teacher (RYT200) with a passion for yoga, and particularly inversions. She is an experienced yogi who has trained inversions, and particularly headstands for many years. She has experience leading large groups and workshops and is keen to help people overcome their fear of going upside down. Her unique energy and aura fill you with a sense of self-confidence and remind you of how much you are capable of achieving.
Yoga, whatever it means to you, is a transformational practice with profound benefits on the body and mind. However, one amazing aspect of the physical practice that isn’t always given its due time and attention are inversions - in particular, headstands. Being upside down for just a few minutes a day is said to improve your concentration, stimulate the circulatory, endocrine, immune systems, and help to calm the mind and reduce anxiety and stress. They are simply TRANSFORMATIONAL. And, once you know how to do them correctly, they’re the gift that keeps on giving as there is always a new variation to strive for!
This workshop creates a safe and comfortable environment for you to begin, or deepen, your headstand practice. It takes the time to educate you on the correct alignment and body positioning within a headstand, which are vital to consistently holding any headstand, and will equip you with everything you need to know - from building up strength and flexibility to progressing into harder variations. The workshop in a way that will enable you to leave with a deeper understanding of this inversion, and be able to integrate all of the tips, tricks and steps into your own personal practice.
This motivating and educational 3-hour workshop with AJ Hartley will inspire you to push yourself in a positive way. The workshop will focus on building up to a variety of different headstands, regardless of your experience with them at present, and leave you feeling motivated, strong and confident after learning new things about the pose and about yourself along the way.
Saturday 16th June:
1 - 5pm
Includes dedicated BYS follow up session on Saturday 14th July 1-3pmIf dedicated session can’t be attended you can attend a different group or pay extra for 1:1 or Skype – contact Deborah to discuss.
Welcome presentation, learning materials and e-mail/phone support (if needed) throughout and after the sessions. Guided T.R.E audio recording and closed Facebook group membership following completion of the follow up session.
On this workshop you will be guided and facilitated through two T.R.E sessions with a drinks/snack break and T.R.E talk in between and you will:
- Learn first hand how T.R.E reignites the body’s innate stress/tension release mechanism and experience your body/mind decompressing and growing in resilience.
- Understand the science behind T.R.E and how T.R.E works
- Learn how to confidently manage your home practice.
The follow up session will be another practical session and an opportunity to ask questions and receive guidance about home practice.
Who is the T.R.E for?
T.R.E (Tremor Release Exercise) has helped people from all walks of life by teaching them how to safely, comfortably and confidently release the symptoms of stress, tension, and deep anxiety.
The T.R.E is for ANYONE who wants to heal themselves from day to day pressures, without talking about the experiences of trauma or PTSD and the associated, often debilitating symptoms.
What is T.R.E?
T.R.E is a natural physical, “no-talking” practice. It safely and gently releases symptoms of stress, tension anxiety and trauma from the body. Like a massage from the inside out, the process returns the body to a more calm, relaxed and balanced state. TRE initiates the body’s innate physiological release mechanism (tremoring/autonomic movement) in a mindful, controlled and sustained way.
You will learn how to trigger the tremors/autonomic movements through simple exercises, and then lie on a mat in order to allow releasing to happen. You will be safely and expertly guided and facilitated throughout, with adaptations made for your specific needs.
By learning this technique you will peel away the layers of tension held deep in the core muscles of the body. When learnt in a supported environment you will start to change your life as you release the physical, mental and emotional blocks that stop you living your life as fully you would like to. Clients often describe the feeling of letting go through the T.R.E as “liberating” and feel empowered by being able to practice at home for themselves.
