Fun With Belly Dance Holiday

Friday 25th June - Monday 28th June 2021

We all know that doing exercise is a great way to get fit but not everyone wants to do high impact aerobic workouts. Research shows that dancing can help you improve, not only on a physical level, but on a mental and emotional level too.


In this “Fun With Belly Dance” holiday you will learn how to wriggle your hips and shake your bootie. Belly dancing is a great way to improve your fitness levels, build core strength and boost your self confidence. You will be getting fit, toned and energised whilst having a belly full of laughs. By the end you will have learnt to celebrate your body and your feminine side.


There will be 6 hours of tuition over the weekend. You will be taught choreographed workout dance routines that you can take with you and enjoy. There will be step by step guidance on how to do the movements. We will also look at posture and how to create the isolated movements.


This is suitable for total beginners as well as those with limited experience. Anyone of any fitness level would enjoy this. You do not need to have belly dance wear, but if you do, please feel free to bring them along. You need to be comfortable and supported in the clothes you wear for dancing. As part of the holiday, you will be given the gift of a hip belt, so you can enjoy the jingle of the belt as you shimmy away, as well as being a keepsake.


Sarina has 15 years experience of belly dancing and 9 years experience of teaching. As an Alexander Technique teacher also, she brings this specialist knowledge of how the body moves to her teaching practice.


Included in your stay:
Six hours of tuition over the weekend.
En-suite accommodation.
Breakfast.
A gift of a hip belt.
Optional activity of watching recorded belly dance performances

The Art of Relaxation Online Mini Course

"We are so tense, not only because there are circumstances which make us tense, but basically we have completely forgotten how to relax.. … This must be taught—that forgotten language. The whole of education, the whole of society is teaching everybody to be tense.” Ruhkne and Wurzburger

 

Are you feeling stressed or anxious? Don’t know how to relax in the moment? This 3 week course will give you simple yet powerful techniques to use in your every day life. You will also gain an understanding of what stress is and how it affects your mind and body.

Whether you are new to relaxation or adding to your existing repertoire, there will be something for everyone. 
 
Most of us experience tension, anxiety and stress, at some points in our lives. This tension can be stored in our bodies and in our minds. In our bodies it can sometimes be in the form of headaches, muscular tension or shortness of breath etc. In our minds it can take the form of the constant stream of thoughts we struggle to switch off. Anyone can benefit from Relaxation Therapy. You don’t have to have a specific stress related problem to gain from it.

The course will be live and interactive. It will comprise of three one hour sessions taken over three weeks. This will allow you time in between to practise what you have learned and give feedback as to your progress. You will be learning skills that really work. Most people find relaxation really enjoyable. It can instil a sense of psychological as well as physical well being. There are three elements that I cover, controlled breathing exercises, progressive muscular relaxation exercises and creative guided imagery.

What you will need:-

1. A blanket/throw.
2. A mat if you would like to lie down during any of the relaxation exercises.
3. Wear comfortable clothing.
4. Pen and paper just in case you would like to jot down any of your learning.
