Wu style Tai chi 18:15 - 19:45 I am teaching the Wu style Tai chi long form in this class.

Tai ji quan is a martial art, a health practice and a meditation in movement.

Tai chi teaches us how to be present and aware of our body and our mind as we progress through learning the Tai chi form.

It is both simple and profound and a wonderful process to engage with, teaching us much about ourselves along the way.

Because it is performed slowly, with mindfulness and in time with the breath, it has a profound effect on maintaining and recovering good physical and mental health.

Its like a kind of physical soduko. Making new connections within the body and opening new neural pathways in the mind, as
the student learns to move in this soft, coordinated, connected way.

As the student progresses through the form we explore the meaning of the postures and martial applications hidden within the form through pushing hands, i.e. soft, cooperative partner work.

Further martial training and weapons are available for the committed student.

I am a 6th generation successor of the Wu family from Shanghai and have 20 years experience of Tai chi & Qi gong.

Please feel free to come down on Mondays and see what Tai chi is all about!

Coaching, Energy Healing, Massage, Reflexology with Jana 14:00 - 18:00 Book your introductory session of Coaching and Energy Healing for only £25 (45 mins)

LAW OF ATTRACTION COACHING

I believe we all have a very accurate inner guidance and that our natural inner state of being is feeling good. These are interconnected in the sense that if we can sustain the feeling of well-being more constantly, life unfolds in a more harmonious and happy way as we attract positive ideas, people, circumstances and events (Law of Attraction). My great joy as a coach is to help my clients reconnect with both their natural inner state of well-being and therefore with their supreme inner guidance, so that they - with growing confidence - become their own coach. This is usually a very organic, gradual, stable and steady process of refocusing towards more life-affirming thoughts and beliefs, whilst leaving behind any outdated, negative ones. As there is an increasing positive outer life experience to match these inner changes, it becomes a very empowering way of regaining and understanding our personal power in creating the life we want.

'Jana's 'Law of Attraction' coaching sessions guide me like a shining beacon of light 'back home', to the space within me that is true and enduring, and which is love.
Her sessions feel gentle but focused, nurturing yet challenging of my self-limiting beliefs, and always leave me feeling a new or renewed level of clarity and sense of hope.I feel wholeheartedly blessed for having met her and embarked on this stage of my soul's journey with her.'
N. L. Brighton

"Jana has been an amazing support in my on going journey with cancer. She gives me confidence, hope and encouragement and brings a wonderful calming and healing energy to our sessions, as well as a lightness and great sense of humour. I don't think I would have got through chemotherapy so successfully without her. I feel serene and positive after I see Jana and feel a sense of deeper connection to myself.
J.H. Lewes

ENERGY HEALING

Many of clients find that having healing can be very soothing when going through a stressful period of their life and people can also come for healing when they simply want a deeper connection to themselves, feel the need to slow down, relax and find their inner balance and peace. Healing is perceived in a wide variety of experiences, from deeply relaxing to very profound and spiritual. As a healer, I channel pure positive Source energy and initiate the healing from there. I also connect to angelic energies. The healing is both hands on and also auric – working on the subtle body (or aura). During the session I will often receive healing messages or insights which are always loving and empowering and support the innate ability of clients to make the right choices for themselves.

Testimonials:
“Thank you Jana for such a profound and transformative healing session. I was going through a difficult time when I came to see you but since having the session I feel peaceful, reconnected to myself and clear. The insightful reflections you shared after the healing were very empowering and have given me courage to begin making positive changes in my life. ” L.F., Lewes

“I really loved my healing session with Jana. It was so relaxing and powerful, I felt completely held, safe and in good hands. She helped me to access some clarity around life situation and I could see clearly from then on what I need to do. I found Jana to be a very gifted, gentle healer and would highly recommend her.” S.H., Lewes

“Jana undoubtedly has a special ability to read individual energy fields and to work with them in her healing. She relays her insights gently, in a manner that is always positive and empowering. A session with Jana will leave you feeling refreshed, uplifted, reconnected and just lovely” T. C., Brighton

AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE

For many clients this is one of the most nourishing and pampering treatments. A unique blend of high quality essential oils are tailored specifically to suit you and your needs. If you like the idea of a relaxing massage with exactly the right pressure for you and the beautiful fragrances of powerful and soothing essential oils, then this is the right treatment for you. Aromatherapy Massage can be used to support your health and body system and give you a sense of overall well-being and promoting emotional wellness.

“Jana made me feel so blissed out, and my body was so relaxed and tended to that I floated all the way home and into a most satisfyingly deep sleep.” J.A. Brighton

REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology works with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to different parts of the body. It is a unique method, including both massage and pressure points, performed on the feet. Stimulating these reflex points can then help to restore the body to its natural and harmonious state.

“Jana’s skilled and soothing touch melts away tension; her calming presence allows deep relaxation and healing. One of the most skilled therapists I have encountered, I would highly recommend her treatments.” A. M., Lewes

Jana's own meditation practice started in 2000 and was further deepened by a year-long spiritual retreat.

Meditation for Body, Mind and Spirit, Tuesdays 2 - 3pm 02:00 - 03:00 We are a friendly group of vibrant people who believe that our true nature is pure joy. We know that we all deserve a happy life and through the Meditation for Body, Mind & Spirit we reconnect to our true selves and access the unlimited possibilities for our lives.

The Meditation starts with a focus on the breath, gently relaxing each part of the body until a state of deep relaxation is reached. The next step is an Inner Journey, a guided visualisation usually dedicated to a theme such as trust, self-love, owning your power, freedom, celebration of your uniqueness, happy relationships, abundance and vitality. An innate part of this journey is connecting to our Guardian Angels, opening to their messages and their healing. For many, this is a profound experience. After the meditation session we pick an angel card for inspiration. No previous experience is necessary, all welcome! We are all spiritual beings having a human experience!

Fees: £40 for 5 consecutive sessions or £10 drop-ins

Beginners Tai Chi drop in classes (first session is free) 19:30 - 21:00 We teach Tai Chi following the teachings of Master Wee Kee Jin of the Tai Chi School of Central Equilibrium. Within our system we teach the Tai Chi principles through the 5 Loosening exercises of our teacher’s teacher Grandmaster Huang Sheng Shyan. Each week we teach the 37 step short form as a means of embodying the Tai Chi principles. As our understanding develops we then we bring those principles into partner work. Using the Tai Chi classics as a guide to deepen our practice we build on our understanding and generate greater focus in our training.

Tai Chi is great for health, relaxation, mindfulness, balance and it’s fun!

First session is free, so come give it a try!
