Healthy Oxford Searching for New Practitioners :)

FullSizeRender (8)Healthy Oxford is a beautiful, quaint, healing space situated in the quiet streets of Jericho.  We’re a community of highly skilled alternative health practitioners offering a variety of treatments from somatic experiencing and craniosacral therapy to Ayurvedic Massage and coaching.  The aims and ethos of our team is to offer high-quality therapies to the local community and to provide a space that is affordable and nurturing to the therapists that work there.  We’re currently a team of five, most of which have been working at Healthy Oxford for a number of years.

We are all self-employed and work independently, but practices and therapies are advertised on our website, facebook page and posters.

The room is rented out in three-hour slots and we currently have availability on Wednesday evenings, Thursday mornings and Saturdays.  Rental rates are set at a very reasonable level, including a two-week holiday to support practitioners in establishing their practices in a notoriously expensive city.

If you, or anyone you know, might be interested in joining the team, then please send an up-to-date CV to laura@ayurvedacorner.co.uk and we can arrange a viewing and meeting from there 🙂  Talking therapies, energy and body workers welcome!  

We look forward to hearing from you!

Late Summer Retreat in Tuscany with Laura

T1yoga-shala

The “real tradition” of yoga involves being guided from within and trusting one’s own inner reference system 

– Quote from Donna Fahri’s keynote speech at the IYTA Conference in Sydney, 2017.

Creating and holding a safe, nurturing space in which individuals are provided with the opportunity to be still, be silent, and reconnect and/or rediscover their inner voice, is one of the greatest gifts a teacher can offer their students.

Yoga retreat daily schedule*:

8.30 – 10.30 – Morning practice, to include meditation, enquiry, pranayama, asana and relaxation.
11 – 1 – Brunch
1 – 5 – will either be personal time – to rest, swim, read, explore surrounding countryside, or include a 2 hour workshop.
5 – 7 – dinner
7.30 – 8.30 – enquiry/meditation
9 – silence and sleep

*please note that the schedule is subject to change and will include silent times.  The second week will be altered to incorporate self-practice and more silence

Where and how to get there?

Casa Martini is situated in the Tuscan countryside, approximately 90 minutes from Pisa airport. Transport can be arranged to collect students from the airport and bring directly to the retreat villa.  Arrangements for this will be made once numbers have been confirmed.

Please do take a look at the website for some further information: https://www.casamartini.eu/

Accommodation and food

The retreat centre is split into three apartments accommodating 2-3 students in each room.  Great consideration and care will be taken to ensure all students are comfortable and sharing appropriately.  If friends and/or families are booking together please just ensure that information is shared when booking.

All food will be locally soured and vegetarian.

When

The dates of the retreat have provisionally been reserved for two weeks – the 7-14th and 14th – 21st of September.  My initial intention was to dedicate the first week to a more relaxed, open approach to the retreat that would appeal to all students of all levels, and the second week would be focused on a deepening immersion into meditation, self-enquiry and self-practice.  This will depend on numbers, and I have the flexibility to adapt in accordance with interest and needs of the group as a whole.  Students would be perfectly welcome to attend both weeks, or just the first, or just the second depending on where they’re at with their individual practice.

How much

The cost of one week retreat will be £610.  If students wish to attend 2 weeks I will be considering a reduced rate for the second week (to be confirmed once numbers have been determined).

This includes:

  • Daily yoga, meditation, pranayama, self-enquiry
  • Workshop sessions and healing gong bath
  • All meals
  • 6 nights accommodation on site
  • Use of natural pool
  • Transfer to and from airport (2 minibuses will be arranged)

This does not include flights.

Payment plans can be arranged on a case-by-case basis.

How to Book

A non-refundable deposit of £150 will be required to reserve a place on the retreat.
