relaxation sessions - Tibetan yoga
These sessions are an introduction to conscious movement and meditation.
Tapping into a gentle healing system which relieves stress, transforms negative patterns and helps us to be balanced and healthy. It increases our enjoyment and appreciation of life and heals both our bodies and minds, bringing their energies together to function smoothly and harmoniously.
Based on Tibetan teachings for living in harmony with physical and universal laws, this practice develops our ability to heal and energize our entire being. It teaches us what it means to just be.
The practice includes stillness, movement, postures, breathing exercises, self-massage and visualization.
"My very first experience of Tibetan Yoga with Brian teaching was deep and powerful.
As a longtime meditator and acupuncture practitioner I'm familiar with both visual and physically felt sensations from meditation and movement practices.
On my very first session I experienced powerful feelings of energy flowing in my body and felt super refreshed and alive after the practice.
For the first time ever, I saw with my open eyes light around my feet during the practice - I could literally see the energy field around my body !
Brian is a natural teacher. His stillness of mind is a pleasure to be near and his depth of understanding of Yogic teachings and spiritual philosophies suggest lifetimes of learning and distillation.
It is with a feeling of gratitude that I regard Brian as my Yoga teacher and highly recommend him to others”.

"Brian has been instrumental in bringing mindfulness, relaxation and meditation to my Studio. He has raised awareness about the benefits of these techniques and the accessibility of these practices to all.
Brian has an amazing manner which is both approachable and knowledgeable making him relevant and appealing to advanced yogis and absolute beginners. The highlight for me personally is his Sound Healing classes using his quartz crystal singing bowls and chimes to bring a deep seated relaxation and healing to everyone in the class. He is a wonderful teacher and an amazing human and an asset to any workshop or studio that sees these practices as useful to their audience.”
