‘Movement is medicine’ virtual retreat Sunday 27th of September with Sophie
The word ‘movement’ is so profound as it has no implications, no labels, no right or wrong, no can I, can’t I?.
There is this ready sense of freedom that is associated with this word. It is the true exploration of your own body, your own self. To trust that you have the tools within to take the return journey home. A trust in your body that it knows the way.
Movement is medicine is a virtual retreat that invites you to be completely yourself with no restrictions on how you should or shouldn’t move, or how you should or shouldn’t feel.
I invite you to take a healing journey with me where there will be no confinement, no judgment, just a knowledge that everything you feel is valid and you are valid.
A real chance to take an adventure inwards.

Seasonal Sounding Healing and Yoga Nidra Ceremony: 11/10/20
A sensational Sunday event with guest Sound Healer, Yoga Nidra Facilitator, Circle Holder & Nature’s Rhythm Coach, Orietta. As the season changes tempo from early Autumn towards the darker seasonal cycle, an outer transition is manifesting upon the earth. We are invited to harmonize with the slower dance this offers, and to mark the transition as a personal ceremony of self-honouring and deep rest.
Orietta will take us on a journey through an inner temple of sound & meditation, intention setting & releasing, sharing & affirmation, energy balancing and sensing. Space is held for us to consider how to bring the outer ceremony of the earth’s transition into our home or life and recognise the harmony of ‘so within so without’. Through being receptive to gentle sound waves, self-honouring meditative words, positive intention and vocal harmonics, we nurture our true alignment with all that is and change from doing to BEing. The session weaves in the seasonal lessons of the forces of creation: earth, water, air, fire, spirit to support our transition to release and self-honouring.
– heavenly sound bath – with quartz crystal chakra balancing bowls, vocal harmonics, wind chimes, Himalayan bowls and other meditative sacred sounds
– releasing yoga nidra – with accompanying instrumentation of shruti box, sansula, soothing chant and sensational percussion
– seated energy sensing meditation
– seasonal intention setting
– collective ‘Earth Oracle’ card insight
– invitation to reflect or journal upon one’s own seasonal ceremony abundance, tempo and release
What to expect at this Sound Bath/Yoga Nidra
Orietta’s sound baths and nidras are gentle and restful with intention to radiate our inner light and essence. We will hear heavenly vocal ‘tones’ that further support the frequency balancing sound waves. The crystal and himalayan bowls offer a hypnotic, angelic and meditative sound for a creative rest. The sounds resonate with our energy centres and might be felt as waves or gentle vibrations that harmonize the system. You will be invited to lie down comfortably using your blankets, pillows etc. The Yoga Nidra practice can support a forgetting of the body and connection with the inner teacher to support a return to one’s heart-centre. You are verbally guided through your body and into a nature based visualisation, accompanied with sound to sink deeply into an embodied and restful state. You’ll be guided to return in a fully grounded and embodied process, feeling refreshed and ready for the week ahead.
