Improving your postural stability minimises strain on the supporting structures of your body, maximises the function and health of your joints, muscles, nerves and internal organs and promotes optimal well-being and movement efficiency.
This in turn reduces associated discomfort and pain, improves your energy levels, circulation and cognition and so enhances your mental and physical agility.
Join Antonia and Sam for a workshop that delves deeper into the importance and benefits of good posture providing you with tools, techniques and exercises to help restore balance through the body, reduce unnecessary tension, maximise your awareness and improve your experience of being comfortable in your own skin.
Refreshments will be provided. Please bring your own lunch or you can visit the renowned Cowdray Estate farm shop and cafe.

Find your Feet, Improve your Balance - Friday 28th June
The feet are the foundation of the entire body and your grounding to the earth. We can build a strong and flexible body but if the feet are not strong, supple and ‘awake’ we are building upon a shaky and weak foundation. Our feet significantly affect our proprioception and balance. This fun and practical masterclass will give you simple, but effective tools and techniques to mobilise and strengthen your feet and ankles and exercises building on this foundation to improve your balance and gait.

Cleansing and Revitalising through Movement - Friday 5th July
As we move and breathe, we are able to unlock the ability to cleanse, detox and drain our bodies of toxins and improve the flow of fluids and energy. Joseph Pilates referred to this as the ‘internal shower’. This masterclass uses the Pilates and Qigong exercises, breathing and lymphatic drainage techniques to provide you with tools and exercises to revitalise your energy, improve internal organ health and spring clean from the inside out.
