What’s included and what do I need to bring?
The student investment for this class is £95 and includes a rich, four and a half hours of easy-to-access information, including techniques to help you help yourself. After the class, I will send you PDF’s with all you need to know and some useful resources.
I invite you to create a comfortable space so that you are free to engage with this powerful work without distractions. Make sure you have made something delicious and nourishing to sustain you, and bring plenty of fluids. A yoga mat and pillow may be useful, although not essential. Have some massage oil by your side, this can be as simple as coconut oil or luxurious as your favourite body oil. A hand towel is also a useful addition.
If you like to take notes then do, but if you like to just sit and enjoy the experience, that’s fine too.
The most important thing is to be cozy and comfortable. You will be massaging your own belly, so please wear loose clothes that you can have easy access to your abdomen, elasticated waists and easy to pull up tops are the way to roll on this class.
What happens next?
Once you sign up, you will receive a welcome email and a form asking you to share Your Health Story. I invite you to take the time to complete this as far as you are comfortable, and return it to me before event begins. Knowing a little of what your challenges are enables me to serve you better and tailor the class towards your needs.
