Try energy healing Reiki during your yoga course with Amy and Joanne

The Watermill at Posara for painting, knitting, creative writing, Italian language and yoga holidays/vacations/retreats, Tuscany, ItalyDuring the inspiring yoga retreat led by Amy Rogg and Joanne Brohmer, your enthusiastic new yoga teachers from California, they’ll be introducing Reiki to our students.

Joanne has been telling us all about this very deep and relaxing form of energy healing.  She says: “Widely used in hospitals in the US, Reiki has been accepted in the medical field as an effective treatment for many kinds of ailments. It helps to heal at the source of what is going on for a person so that the body begins to heal itself and resolve any deeper emotional stress that is causing the ailment. Reiki has ancient roots in both Japan and Tibet and was a form of healing that was discovered independently in these different regions of the world. It is fairly new to the US, just in the last 50 years or so.”

Joanne has been practising Reiki for 20 years and has seen amazing transformations.  She says: “The feeling of Reiki tends to be deeply relaxing, unconditionally loving and deep sense of connection with the self.” She lists some of the benefits:

  • reduces stress
  • relieves physical pain and reduce tumors
  • reduces blood pressure
  • can speed up any healing process
  • raises the vibrational frequency of the body
  • helps to clear old traumas and stored emotions
  • helps relieve pain
  • helps to balance the hormonal systems
  • induces a sense of wellbeing and ease
  • brings you closer to your natural energy state

Joanne will also be offering one-hour Reiki treatments alongside massage during the retreat. There is a charge: if you wold like a session, you can book on directly with Joanne during your stay.

Amy and Joanne’s week will run from Saturday 25 August to Saturday 1 September 2018. The theme of the retreat will be Connection’ – to yourself, to others and to nature.

With their students using words like ‘joy’ and ‘magical’ about them, Amy and Joanne will help you to awaken and restore your true passion and self-worth. We are sure this is going to be one of our most inspiring retreats where we’ll nurture your mind, body and spirit.

A yoga tip from Amy: get those feet raised for a sleep-filled night

 

 The Watermill at Posara for painting, knitting, creative writing, Italian language and yoga holidays/vacations/retreats, Tuscany, Italy.Amy Rogg, one of our enthusiastic new yoga teachers from California sends us this simple but effective yoga tip, which will help you get a good night’s sleep. We are looking forward to welcoming Amy and her yoga partner Joanne Brohmer for an inspiring retreat at the end of August. More details below.

Meanwhile, time to get those feet raided high. Amy writes: “One of the most restorative poses of all time is Viparita Karani, otherwise known as ‘legs up the wall.’ Extend your feet up a wall, perhaps putting a blanket under your back for extra comfort. Grab an eye pillow, turn on your favorite soothing music, and breathe deeply.

“This pose is beneficial for calming anxious/chaotic energy in the body and is wonderful to do right before bed. By allowing gravity to work in the opposite direction, blood flows towards the upper body allowing for better circulation and lymph drainage. When there is more blood flow in our lower energy centers–reproductive and digestive–the body’s relaxation response is activated. Say goodbye to headaches and insomnia too!” 

We are delighted to welcome  Amy and Joanne, two amazing young American yoga teachers to The Watermill. With their students using words like joy’ and magical’ about them, Amy and Joanne will help you to awaken and restore your true passion and self-worth. We are sure this is going to be one of our most inspiring retreats –a sun-filled, fun-filled week where we’ll nurture your mind, body and spirit.

Claire’s everyday tips to enhance your life: simple teatime meditataion

Blog yoga Tea-Coffee MeditationOur lovely yoga tutor, Claire Murphy, who will be back for another of her relaxing and inspiring retreats here later in the year, believes in incorporating yoga and meditation techniques into everyday life.

Here’s one you could try at teatime (or coffee-time come to that!) It will enhance you s senses and enliven you spirits and make your tea (or coffee) even more ‘the cup that cheers’.

Tea /Coffee Meditation

Listen to the sound of water as you fill the kettle

Take a moment to smell the tea / coffee before you place it in your cup

Notice the thoughts / feelings you have as you anticipate the taste of your drink

Pouring the hot water – listen to the sounds of the spoon as you stir in milk or sugar

Enjoy the warmth of your cup as you lift it and take a moment to savour the smell before taking a sip

If you can, try and enjoy your drink without any distractions (e.g.: looking at your phone).

Why don’t you join us to learn more on Claire’s unique seven-day  retreat, which will run from Saturday 25 August to Saturday 1 September 2018?

Claire Murphy H&SYoga, meditation and massage have been a way of life for Claire Murphy for more than 25 years and she’s passionate about teaching them. Together we’ve created a unique seven-day programme to Nourish your soul, mind and body.

We’ll nourish your soul on rural walks and visits to ancient walled towns and hilltop villages, castles and convents. You’ll also savour the relaxed atmosphere of la bella vita italiana in local cafes, shops, restaurants and markets.

As well as yoga and meditation, we’ll venture a little journal writing and painting in The Watermill studio overlooking the river or under the shade of the vine verandah to nourish your mind.

And we’ll nourish your body with fresh, home-cooked, nutritionally balanced meals lovingly prepared by the Watermill cooks, with many of the ingredients freshly picked from The Watermill’s own gardens. There will be vegetarian options for every meal, of course. Private sessions with a local Shiatsu practitioner are also available, at cost, on request

Claire’s yoga retreat is inspired by the beauty of this area and by the elements and she’s been working hard on an even more inspiring itinerary for next year. She tells us: The theme of the retreat is Nourish Your Elemental Self and it will include yoga, meditation, creative writing & art journaling.”

Claire has been allotting specific themes for each day: Sunday: Earth; Monday: Water; Tuesday: Fire; Thursday: Air and Friday: Ether. Claire’s working up the itineraries, which will include activities in the Watermill gardens, along the millstream and river and, of course, breathing in the wonderfully pure air of this environmentally protected area.

The air, the sun, the sound of the church bells brought a special feeling of lightness and childlike joy to the proceedings.” That’s a comment from one of the participants on Claire’s retreat at The Watermill last year. Another said: “The Watermill is such a stunning, peaceful, green and quiet. We are pampered and well looked-after” 

The Watermill at Posara for painting, knitting, creative writing, Italian language, personal development and yoga holidays/vacations/retreats, Tuscany, Italy.As for the yoga, here’s what another of this year’s guests had to say:  “The yoga retreat was the perfect mix of physical postures, meditation and thoughtful contemplation in glorious mountain surroundings. I particularly appreciated how you created a gentle space for all attendees no matter where they were on their yoga journey or what physical issues they were dealing with. The journaling and art prompts offered the opportunity for creative experimentation and expansion. All in all, a fabulously revitalising week.”
