Here’s the bio from Daniels Website..
http://dcmlifestyle.com/
My journey in yoga began with the combined interests of developing a healthy body, but also a healthy mind. This interest developed from a young age, spanning across a multitude of disciplines including; rock climbing, gymnastics, calisthenics, mixed martial arts, meditation and music. Initially, these activities were practiced individually, but I then found my true passion in the study and practice of Yoga as a lifestyle – both on and off the mat. Having studied Yoga for Six Years, I qualified as a Yoga teacher at the Marianne Wells Yoga School (Yoga Alliance), training in Costa Rica. It was here that I decided to dedicate my life to teaching and sharing the life changing practice that I experienced.I believe that Yoga is for anyone and everyone, and that it will be beneficial regardless of a students current ability or their aspirations. I believe Yoga is a continuous journey of self study and practice
When I teach, I always ensure that there is a safe environment to practice, where anyone and everyone will feel welcome, happy and comfortable. I offer guidance, adjustments and alternative postures to students (when appropriate) so that regardless of their ability, each individual will be able to reach their full potential within each and every class. My personal practice is derived from traditional teachings in Hatha, Iyengar, and Ashtanga. I choose elements from the different schools of yoga, and incorporate them into my lessons to suit the desired intention of the class.Yoga, alternative physical / spiritual development, and the study of all aspects of developing a holistic lifestyle, provide an open ended journey of learning and discovery which I endeavour to deepen every day, and then incorporate into my teaching.

Free talk on Traditional Chinese Medicine this Friday!

From 6-9 on Friday 29th come join us for a free introduction talk, on how TCM can be a benefit to your health and wellness, by Dheai Isaaid.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is an ancient set of practices from China that operate under the belief that the processes of the human body are interrelated and connected to the environment. TCM practitioners approach healthcare from a holistic standpoint, looking for the underlying imbalances and disharmonies behind an illness. The practitioner will look at the whole picture and try to treat the patient, instead of just the disease. We will also be joined by Joanne Denn, Kangen Water Consultant, Holistic Practitioner and Acupuncturist, who will talk on the benefits of drinking Alkaline ionised water. Joanne will also share with you new medical studies by Dr H.S. Filtzer MD FACS (Cardiologist and co inventor of the heart stint)
Light refreshments will be available!

About Veronica
 
Veronica taught regular classes and trained yoga teachers for many years, then founded the Subtle Body Anatomy & Yoga Energy Medicine Training; and now delivers this module as part of Yoga Alliance 300hrs trainings. She also offers these teachings in retreats and immersions. They are open to all; teachers, healers, leaders, facilitators and seekers that wish to learn more about working with Subtle Body Anatomy; Chakras, Koshas, Vayus, Nadis;  Classes include meditation and dharma talks; asana work that teaches real life functioning of chakra, kosha, vayu and nadi. We glimpse a fraction of the vast interrelated network of systems that create the human experience, how to get to experience their balanced state, and how to utilize that for us, in practice and in teaching, the Energy Medicine of Yoga.  Eye opening and far reaching teachings that will enrich and inform the path of any sincere teacher and student.  
With over 20 years of experience Veronica is a Yoga Alliance E-RYT 500hrs, with 2000+ Yoga Practice and Training, Vipassana and Sumarah Meditation, Healing and consciousness training contact hours.

Coupled with Veronica’s exceptional ability to function much like an inter-dimensional x-ray of energy is the innate ability to perceive the seed of what creates dis-harmony within an ‘operating system’, and to bring that into conscious awareness for transformation and healing, in a space of kindness,  honesty and no judgement. Be it through physical yoga, yoga teachings, guidance or nutrition. It’s a God-given gift of allowing for the deepest level of truth to arise within others. 
Veronica’s work is grounded in direct experience and 25 years of physical and spiritual practice, that started when she began addressing her own health challenges of scoliosis, severe migraines, and internal issues as a young adult. Her work comes from the personal journey, and the listening deeply in many years of training yoga teachers, holding transformational retreats, online programs and powerful one to one sessions, working with people from all walks of life.  
The course is suitable for both teachers and practitioners of yoga, especially those who are committed to deepening consciousness within their physical/mental/emotional/spiritual bodies as a unified field.

New Course: Conversations in Love with Allan Hardman

Has loving and being loved been challenging for you? What if the way we love is the result of old fear-based beliefs and agreements? I believe we can change those beliefs and change our experience of love. Our time together will offer insights and tools to help you create a new sense of love and acceptance for yourself. I know through that self-love and acceptance we will see the same love reflected in all our relationships.

Family Constellation Workshop this Weekend!

Maura Clesham is back this Sunday with another ( Her 5th time here) Family Constellation Workshop
What are Family Constellations?

Family Constellation is a powerful method to help you recognise difficult entanglements, both in your family of origin as well as in your present family or relationship. Solution-oriented interventions bring understanding, which is followed by a deep relaxation that allows love to flow again between members of the family system.
Systemic Family Therapy was first developed by the German therapist, Bert Hellinger. In this therapeutic approach, we consider the individual as part of a greater whole – a family system – rather than as a separate entity. His individual behaviour, feelings and attitudes, have to be understood in the context of this larger group. As in any other system, unspoken laws operating within the family guide behaviour that we, as family members, are largely unaware of. Suffering usually arises in a family member when one or more members of the system unconsciously violate these archaic laws. They do this unknowingly, not out of rebelliousness as one might expect, but out of love – a ‘blind’ love.
The way we bring these hidden, family dynamics to light is to have the client use the help of other group participants to create a constellation of his or her family. The participants, representing members of that person’s family, are positioned in the room in relation to each other according to the client’s feeling in that moment. In this way, we create a living model of their original (or present) family. What we have found is that the feelings and thoughts of the people representing family members are very similar to those of the actual family members. There obviously exists an energy field that guides the representatives’ movements and allows them to have access to all essential information of the systemic field.
Such constellations are usually carried out with a group of people, where members of the group play the roles of representatives. However, it also works in individual sessions where cushions or other symbols can be used to represent the positions of family members.
This work uniquely uncovers any destructive family dynamic that may be lingering beneath the surface. But that is not all it does: when those standing in for family members follow their spontaneous movements minutely, not only are family entanglements revealed, but we also discover what leads to healing. Healing movements are supported by the interventions of the therapist, who brings in missing or excluded family-members, suggests new and more conscious behaviours, and finds healing sentences for the family members to say to each other. Finally a new, more natural and healing balance for the whole system can be found, where the love between its members can flow again in a new and more conscious way.
A constellation reveals unconscious collective laws operating within a family system and also helps us to fall in tune with higher laws that take us beyond both the personal and the individual family, and brings us in contact with another dimension, where we all are one. This has an immediate healing effect not only on us, but on everyone who is close to us.

Benefits of Infrared Hot Yoga

The heating system is powered by Infra Red heaters heating the room up to to 36-40 degrees celsius. The heat provides a method of detoxing and also encourages your body to become more limber and flexible. Radiant, or infrared heat, works differently from conventional heat also in that it does not “transfer” heat from a heating source, but rather it distributes it more evenly because it “radiates” the heat outward. It does not need a secondary transference method to warm an area, a person, a small room, or whatever the purpose might be. Infrared heat has numerous therapeutic benefits. The room is not oppressively hot when you enter, as far infrared heat works by using your body’s own energy to heat the room as you move through your practice. The room only gets hot when you do. Infrared heat removes toxins that are stored in the body, improves flexibility & joint mobility, promotes healing, reduces muscle stiffness and pain, decreases soreness & inflammation, increases circulation, improves skin tone (it will even heal sunburn), promotes weight loss, enhances heart function, lowers blood pressure, reduces stress, and speeds cancer recovery. The human body is composed of more than 80% water. Far Infrared heat causes resonance in water molecules, activating them and ionizing them. Due to these effects, Far Infrared Heat Therapy offers a variety of proven health and beauty benefits. Infrared Heat Therapy effectively helps to increase blood circulation without putting strain on your heart. It increases the levels of oxygen and white blood cells in your blood. It also stimulates the production of collagen (a building block for human tissue) in your body and helps to rid your body of toxins by causing you to perspire. Burns hundreds of calories in 20-30 minutes Reduces stress and fatigue Strengthens the cardiovascular system Heals injuries faster and more efficiently Relieves pain and migraine headaches Ease joint pain and stiffness Relaxes muscles and increases flexibility Deep cleanse skin naturally Remove toxins and mineral waste Improves the immune system   Classes each day – Monday – Friday! Committing to a regular yoga practice will change your life…
