Free Laughter Yoga 

Come along to this free Laughter Yoga class to find out for yourself the wellbeing benefits of laughing unconditionally, that is without the need for something to laugh at. This session will connect you with your natural playfulness, deep belly laughter and the feel good factor from breathwork. It is suitable for most people, however like any physical exercise there are some contraindications so please let me know of any health conditions when you book. 

"The Laughter Yoga class was fantastic. I left feeling I had just realised months of stress that had built up. Looking forward to more. Thank you Carla!" Helen

 

First Wednesday of the month, 6.00pm to 7.00pm 

Free Sophrology Taster

Cited as the 'new mindfulness' Sophrology uses a unique mixture of breathing techniques, relaxation exercises, body awareness, visualisation, sound, gentle movements, mindfulness and meditation. We can be left with a wonderfully relaxed body and a calm, but alert mind. Come along and try it for yourself and it's free! 

"The taster session yesterday has really sparked my interest in Sophrology, it was great. I know I have only taken part in a couple of your sessions but I have found them very beneficial." Ingrid

"The pain in my knee had reduced by 90%, I felt so relaxed. Thank you." Terry

Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini Yoga is a great way to release what is not you, to move closer to your most authentic self and awaken your highest potential. Using dynamic postures, breath, mudra and mantras, it brings about transformation quickly. £10 a class or £48 for a block of 6 classes. 

"I awoke really refreshed after the Kundalini Yoga class yesterday, the infection I had cleared significantly. I felt lighter and brighter. Such a shift. Thank you!" Shree.

"That was such a powerful class. I feel both deeply energized and relaxed - amazing really - and ready for the next few days and weeks to come." Julie 

Workshops

Get The Meditation Habit - Sunday 11th July 2021 - 1.30pm to 4.30pm at the Centre Yoga & Wellbeing, Hartlepool - £35

Meditation, although very simple, can be a challenge for some people, and for some, finding the time to make it a daily habit, being one of the top issues. However the benefits we receive from meditation are worth giving it the extra attention to form a regular meditation practice. Sophrology can really help to guide us into that meditative space both quickly and easily, as Vicky asserts below.

"Sophrology proved to be of immeasurable value in assisting my recovery from Post Viral Fatigue. I found traditional meditation impossible. I now use Sophrology to relax, meditate and visualise daily. I feel stress free, focused, more confident, a better communicator and I enjoy life more." Vicky from Leeds

This half day workshop is designed to help you not only build a daily habit out of using Sophrology to meditate but to help give you some useful tools to help you deal with stress, improve your resilience and confidence. The workshop will also help to demystify some of the myths around meditation, for example, expecting to eliminate all thoughts. Some of the benefits of meditating include:​

 

  • Reduced feelings of depression and anxiety

  • Gives a sense of peace, calm and balance in mind and body

  • Improves sleep and reduces stress

  • Helps to see our thoughts more clearly so we can disregard unhelpful thoughts more easily

  • Reduces pain and enhances the body’s immune system, and much more

Sophrology is easy to learn and with practice one can start to feel the benefits straight away. The workshop has been designed for absolute beginners and those with some meditation experience. There will be an invitation at the end of the workshop to do a 7 day Sophrology meditation challenge to help you get started and stick to it – although of course there is no pressure to do this, which is then followed up with an online session

Food & Freedom Workshop- Sunday 8th August 2021 - 10am to 4.00pm at the Centre Yoga & Wellbeing, Hartlepool - £65

What would life be like if you ate only when you were truly hungry, you no longer had to go on diets to feel good. In this one day workshop you will receive an introduction to the Food & Freedom Pathway where you will begin to explore your relationship with food using Sophrology (Dynamic Mindfulness).  

 

You will begin to understand that there is usually something beneath the surface of our relationship with food, and our behaviours, keeping us going back for more and overeating when we have had enough, eating when we are not hungry and yo-yo dieting.

Woman in a Field

“The Food & Freedom journey gave me all the insight, tools and confidence I needed to face into my own  relationship with food. I feel so much happier, calmer and more confident in myself and my life. Thank you so much Carla!” Kate

The Food & Freedom Pathway helps us to free ourselves from long standing negative beliefs, habits and self-imposed restrictions, such as dieting, to find a natural bliss and joy that comes from having a healthy relationship with food. The Food & Freedom Journey offers a pathway to not only have a better relationship with food, but also with yourself, it is a return to love. Through developing awareness and understanding more deeply our relationship with food, and therefore ourselves and our environment, we gently and powerfully come home to ourselves,

Although the Food & Freedom Pathway is not about weight loss as such, it is something that can, and typically does occur naturally when we improve our relationship with food, and with ourselves. When we begin to eat only when we are hungry and we can tune into what our body needs, then it is quite natural we find the right weight for us, it has been there all along.

 

In this one day workshop you will be joined by other like-minded people who wish to invest in themselves and explore their relationship with food to find freedom with food and the self-love that comes with it. 

During this one day workshop you will:

  • Learn how to tune in to your relationship with food

  • Begin to come home to the body so you can listen to what it truly wants

  • Discover the difference between physical and emotional hunger

  • Identify the reasons why you turned to food in the first place (you’ll realise that it’s actually a very intelligent reaction)

  • Acknowledge food patterns, triggers, and begin to explore how you can make changes

  • Receive lots of ‘aha’ moments, realisations into your own behaviour with food, including self-sabotaging behaviours, self-harm and control.

  • Learn techniques and tools to help you break habits that no longer serve and re-direct your energy

 

You will leave the workshop with a new awareness about your relationship with food, how you can change what is not working for you, and, most importantly, begin the journey of releasing the inner turmoil the battle with food brings, so you can reclaim your power and no longer rely on food as a way to cope.

 

For those women who would like to take this journey on a more personal level please get in touch with Carla on 07884 101164 or email info@beinharmony.co.uk for further information about the coaching available.

In this full day workshop we will be exploring the fundamentals of sleep to help empower you to take the steps you need to get a good night's sleep:

  • Learn how your sleep environment impacts your ability to sleep deeply and leave with ways to improve it.

  • Explore and understand your own sleep patterns and the reasons you may not be sleeping as well as you would like.  

  • Create your action plan and own ideal bedtime routine.

  • Understand the importance of the concept of 'preparing for a good night's sleep during the day'

  • Develop a good understanding of the fundamentals of Sophrology, the wellbeing framework and practice that will be shared during the workshop as a way to help prepare the mind and body for a good night's sleep without needing too much time. 

  • Take away new insights, knowledge, and motivation, in which to make the changes you need to start sleeping well every night.

'Food & Freedom' journey.
 
(A non refundable deposit of £90 at the time of booking but can be exchanged for another weekend. Deposit refundable if the retreat can not go ahead due to Government legislation.) 

These retreats are for anyone who has a dysfunctional relationship with food, whether you have been on a constant diet all your life, compulsively overate, or generally felt like you are having to keep constant control of what, how and when you eat, this retreat might be for you. 

 

We gently explore our relationship with food over the course of the weekend with other liked minded individuals. As we take an inner journey into the most deepest core of who we are, we uncover the reasons why we eat the way we do, seeing clearly our relationship with food and why even though we have all the best intentions, we still continue to sabotage ourselves.

 

I offer this retreat, from my own journey of having had a dysfunctional relationship with food and found freedom with food. For more information about the retreat, please visit the retreat page or to book please visit the booking page. 

 

This retreat is based on the 'Food & Freedom' journey which is both an individual and a group pathway that we can all take. For more information about this journey please visit the Food & Freedom page.
