Saturday 20th July 13:00 – 18:00    £50
The workshop will cover:
• Testing for adequate range of motion, and how to address if the tests are a fail.
• Understanding alignment with specific conditioning & postural balance work.
• Teaching the principles along with the progressions that we have found to bring the most success for the development of a free standing handstand.
• Understanding compression and spinal articulation for press to handstand.
• Practice of a variety of handstand holds such as split handstands, hollow backs, tuck handstands and lowers.
The workshop will be taught by multiple coaches so all ability levels are welcome. The workshop is predominantly physical based but during breaks for food and recovery they will be optional theory based lessons for example ‘exercise periodisation for Maximal results’, ‘The biomechanics and physiology of active and passive mobility’ and ‘the foundations of sports nutrition and performance psychology’. These lessons are aimed at improving your practice and understanding of the machine that is the human body, but to reiterate these are not mandatory if you’d prefer to nip away for a quick coffee.
Participants will also get access to our online private calisthenics group as well as discounts on our online courses. Certificates of attendance are available if requested.
Contact and follow the team online for more information.

Exploring Tension & Trauma Release Exercises – TRE

“Weird and Wonderful – Wow!”

We all carry tension in our bodies. We all suffer from stress and anxiety at times. We all experience pain, sometimes for long periods.

This workshop invites you to try tremoring to dispel trapped energy that doesn’t serve you and integrate your life experiences, gradually, for health and healing.

*TRE stands for Tension and Trauma Release Exercises. Seven simple exercises trigger our natural stress release mechanism, promoting:

deep calm and relaxation

emotional resilience
improved sleep
greater flexibility
more energy

pain relief.

In this workshop you’ll be given the theory behind this gentle way to rebalance your nervous system. Then you’ll experience in practice how to start, stop and manage the shaking that is so healthy for EVERY body!

Rachael is a qualified TRE Provider with many years’ experience of teaching. She experienced a new calm and strength, together with significant migraine relief as a result of practising TRE.

Explore Your Roots: A Family Constellation Workshop with Jenny- Sunday 16th June 1-6pm

Family constellation is a group work in which you can bring personal issues in a safe and supporting environment.

We all have been brought up with beliefs and burdens which belong to our parents and ancestors and yet we still carry them whether it is conscious or subconscious. It affects our emotions, our physical health and the way we relate to our own life. The goal of this workshop is for you to find who you are without your family drama and/or the traumatic experiences you had.

We usually start by clearing ancestors and their trauma including family secrets. We look at your family’s dynamic so we can bring up the real emotions sitting behind an issue and release them. You don’t need any experience to participate or know the issue or even your family.

Each person participates in most constellations by representing someone or something in need of a voice.
Here is a link to an article I wrote to understand a bit better what Family constellation is:

It is a difficult concept to grasp so if you have any queries or if you don’t feel comfortable in a group environment and would prefer an individual session, please contact me.

Herbal teas are provided. You can bring food as we take a few breaks and the workshop can be intense. Also bring warm socks and clothes because due to energies, the temperature in the room changes.

Note: to the people who already joined us, we changed venue and will be in Leeds city centre.

Please contact me for payment details to secure your place as an issue holder or representative. Cancellation less than 24 h will be charged 50% of the price.
