RESET for Mums
Breath and Movement Day Retreat with Walthamstow’s East of Eden and
The Breathing Room’s Aimee Hartley
Walthamstow’s innovative yoga and Pilates studio, East of Eden, is collaborating with leading Transformational Breath facilitator Aimee Hartley to create a very special event for mothers in January 2018 to nourish, stimulate and recharge:
RESET, an urban day retreat at Bethnal Green’s Town Hall Hotel between 10am and 5.30pm on Sunday 21st January 2018 weaves breath and movement with delicious plant-based heathy food and goodies to enable mums to reset themselves for 2018 after a busy festive period.
Designed with mums in mind, you will be led through a series of yoga inspired movements and postures to help access a fuller respiratory system. You’ll start with a full Transformational Breath session followed by deep relaxation and a simple, short meditation.
After a delicious vegan lunch, we’ll close the afternoon with a yin yoga practice and meditation led by Vanessa Bridgman to create space in the body by working with the deep connective tissue fascia – more rejuvenating than a nap.
No yoga experience is required and you stay in postures for a longer period of time. Breathing correctly is essential for feeling well. A full breath can help you feel more energised, less stressed and learning new breathing exercises can help you enjoy a deeper sleep. Everything you learn on the day can then be practiced at home.
Transformational Breath®, is a self-healing technique that helps people correct old unhealthy patterns of breathing and helps to access the full potential of their breathing system for better physical, emotional and mental well-being. The connected pattern of conscious breathing is a natural, safe and easy –to-learn technique, which has proven to have many benefits almost universally, including increased energy, better immune response and increased ability to deal with stress in a positive way. Diaphragmatic breathing is paramount to the Transformational Breath® process. Encouraging a deep breath into the abdomen is not only relaxing; it’s been scientifically proven to positively affect the heart, brain, digestive and immune system. Once the breath is moving in the abdomen, the upper lungs can be activated so eventually the breath is full, connected and active.
