A Day of Ayurveda – Practice and Theory
As we move into the warmer months of the year it is the perfect time to embrace Diet and Lifestyle recommendations and explore The Great Elements.
Meta joins us to bring her wealth of knowledge to us through ‘A Day of Ayurveda’ with a day of yoga, breathing, meditation cooking and concepts.
Exploration will be around the Intelligence, internally and externally, of the three more active elements:
If you have attended any of our Ayurveda events, or if you are a first-timer, you are invited to join us and develop your understanding of the biological intelligence within us known as ‘Dosha-s’.
Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems.
More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realising their full human potential.
Health is fostered through the informed interaction of the individual with their diet, mental process, lifestyle and environment. Ayurveda teaches us how to sustain what is inborn: health in the individual, in society and for the planet. It enhances our connection to nature, the five elements and the vastness of life. Ayurveda recognises the elements in the environment as the same elements activating our bodies and minds.
With a variety of experiential practices, you will have first-hand knowledge of why – by doing.
During this nourishing day we will:
- Explore yoga, breathing and meditation in three separate forms, to understand how to balance our air element, fire element and water element
- Cook three different recipes for lunch as part of the experiential understanding of the elements and the dosha-s
- Become familiar with the signatures of the elements so as to maintain wellness
- Gain a deeper feel for the concept of the Dosha-s
- Explore and share by way of Question and Answer time

Introducing your child to the wonderful world of sound and colour and exploring the healing properties of vibration, relaxation and rejuvenation.
This workshop involves a wonderful sound healing journey including, singing bowls, gongs, drums and singing accompanied by a visualisation with colour to lead you through the awareness of our own inner strength, stillness, mindfulness, love, inspiration and our connection to the earth, family and friends and our wider environment.
This process allows you and your child to create a bond through sound and relaxation and provide them with an opportunity to learn to connect to their inner strength and sense of self. They will discover how to still their busy minds and touch on the mindfulness tools to find and grow a place of peace and love inside them.
This sound healing workshop is for children from 6 years and older and parents or carers. If your child is younger than 6 years and you are confident they will be able to lie quietly for one hour please speak to Storme personally before the session and we can discuss this. The younger children are required to have an adult present during the session, however older children who are able to lie quietly for one hour do not need an adult with them if you do not wish.
After the sound healing you are welcome to bring your child and sit with Storme to discuss anything personal about your experience and any issues your child may be currently experiencing that you would like some coaching and guidance with.
The sound sessions will be held in The Sound Temple which is a beautifully nurturing space for children and families to share time together, then in the main studio Storme will set up a private space for an optional one on one with parents and child to discuss anything that has come up for them.
Start: Sunday 18th November 2018 starts 11:00am, arrive from 10:45
Sessions will be for one hour, this is specifically a children’s session but parents are welcome to stay if it’s necessary.
The session in The Sound Temple will finish at 12pm, so if parents leave their children for the session they need to be back at 12pm sharp to collect or supervise their own children.
At 12pm Storme will be available for children and or parents to chat to her in a private space in the studio.
