yoga_gong_bath

Sun 5 Jun 2016, 1.30-4.30pm, The Ashtanga Yoga Workshop, Exeter, £35 (including refreshments)

With Julie Bladon and Elaine Nicholas

£35.00 Add to cart

Join us for our YoGo (Yoga & Gong) Workshop to celebrate midsummer.  Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, the shortest night, is a few weeks away and we will be celebrating the changing season and take time to reconnect with the natural cycles.  Summer Solstice is an important time for looking at the grand scope of your life and noticing what is out of alignment. What are the things you do, think or say that are out of alignment with what you truly believe? It is a time of action.

As part of this midsummer celebration you will enjoy a relaxing and calming meditative yoga practice to prepare your body & mind for sound healing – chanting & voicework and an extended Gong Bath.

You will experience the Gong Bath lying on a mat, head on a pillow, wrapped in a blanket with eyes closed.  This deep and lasting massage in sound, the effects of which continue long after the session as the body adjusts to the sounds and begins to come into balance.

“Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, … and life to everything. It is the essence of order” ~ Plato (429 – 347)

With the majority of Gong Bathers reporting relief from a vast array of maladies ranging from chronic pain through to stress, anxiety, addiction, depression and fatigue; attesting release from spiritual conditions such as feeling disconnected, ungrounded and disillusioned, and claiming to have increased vitality, calmness, balanced emotions, feelings of self-empowerment, greater clarity, and improved creativity.  It may be that Gong sound is re-tuning those hard to reach areas!  And as every gong bath is an individual experience depending on where the individual is in their journey through life, and the sounds produced are entirely right for whoever is present at the time.

This workshop is for anyone interested in yoga, relaxation and sound healing, whether you are brand new or experienced in your practice.  Beginners are very welcome.

Julie began her exploration with yoga over twenty years ago. Initially as a means to deal with the stress of university studies but over time she developed a wider awareness of the benefits of yoga in her life.  Julie’s joy is teaching authentic yoga from the heart.  It is an inspiration to see the development and growth of students.  She has a passion for Yoga Nidra (Yoga Sleep) and loves to share the benefits of this powerful practices both in person and online.

Elaine draws from six years of experience in the Holistic Health field to develop a range of techniques to help improve health and wellbeing using sound, voice and mindfulness as therapeutic tools.  She is a Gong Master accredited by, and member of, the College of Sound Healing.

Come and enjoy relaxing yoga and bathe in the powerful vibrating tones of the Gong.

  • Deepen your practice

And you? When will you begin that long journey into yourself?” ~ Rumi

Developing your practice can be challenging especially when you have a busy life and schedule.  Being on retreat gives you the chance to attend 2 classes per day, you will notice the progress and the positive effect this is having.  Distractions are limited so you can be sure that you fully focus.

  • Create a new perspective

The trees, the flowers, the plants grow in silence. The stars, the sun, the moon move in silence. Silence gives us a new perspective” ~ Mother Teresa

We all benefit from going to a new place, seeing the world and ourselves through different eyes.  You will have time to contemplate, to review what is out of balance and where you need to action change in your life.  This safe space will allow you to grow and learn.

  • Navigate life changes

It’s a good idea always to do something relaxing prior to making an important decision in your life” ~ Paulo Coelho, The Pilgrimage

Life is in constant change, some of which can be challenging.  A retreat allows you to step outside of your everyday life, to gain deeper understanding and create clarity.

It may be that you consciously decide to attend a retreat in order to work through change in your life or the outcome of a relaxing retreat may be a new perspective which leads to change.

  • Time to meditate

In meditation we return to where we already are – this shifting, changing ever-present now
If you wish to take up meditation, it must be now or never.” ~ Steve Hagen, Meditation Now or Never

You will be away from distractions, feel relaxed and ‘in the moment’ leading to a peaceful space in which to develop your meditation practice.  This is a perfect time to develop new habits.

  •  Take a digital detox

Spending the majority of our waking lives experiencing reality through a screen, endlessly plugged into our devices, is taking its toll… and we’re realising it’s not the answer. The era of burnout, multi-tasking, tech dependence, fatigue, ‘social media everything’ and information overload is coming to a close” ~ thedigitaldetox.org

By switching off your technology you can find space and balance.  You can evaluate your relationship with technology and develop a more balanced approach.  Understand that you can press pause, reconnect with yourself and those around you, saviour your life experiences and feel recharged.

  • Rest and Relax 

Turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream”  ~ John Lennon

On retreat you have the permission to fully relax.  You can tune into your body, rest when you need it, allow your body and mind to de-stress.  You are free to replenish as you wish, you are free from demands.

  • Eat well

Let food be thy medicine, thy medicine shall be thy food” ~ Hippocrates

All of the hard work is done for you, you will enjoy nutritious and delicious meals.  It is an opportunity to review unhealthy habits and to develop new behaviours.   Healthy food, yoga and rest will re-energise your batteries and assist the body’s healing process.

  • Make new friends. 

Every person needs a time out, away from stressful jobs, pressures from employers or clients, home responsibilities….  Everyone deserves to enjoy, visit unknown places, try other things, meet a lot of new friends, and feel at the top of the world. Life is full of fun, excitement, and adventure. Thus, vacation is an experience that’s worth remembering for a lifetime. It heals a weary mind and soul”  ~ Alon Calinao Dy

You may travel as a group or solo but it is guaranteed that you will meet like minded people on retreat.  Retreats are perfect if you are travelling alone, you have the choice to spend time with others or enjoy your own space if you wish.

Two experienced yoga teachers will lead this retreat, Julie Bladon (Jayadevi) and Jackie Dorrian (Jagdambe Ma), who will teach yoga classes in a variety of styles including Akhanda Yoga, Classical Kundalini Yoga, Yin Yoga, Sivananda Yoga and Yoga Nidra.

Gratitude Diary 2016

gratitude-diary-2016

There is much scientific evidence supporting the benefits of a Gratitude Diary. I have started a gratitude journal in the past and this year I am determined to keep up my practice. I have set myself the goal of writing 3 items in my Gratitude Diary each evening. I document positive events that have occurred for me during my day.

My aim is to maintain my Gratitude Diary until it becomes a habit. It’s a peaceful time to reflect on my day and to note what has gone well. Even on the most challenging of days we can find 3 items to add to the Gratitude Diary.

Benefits of a Gratitude Diary

  1. Well-Being:  Grateful people report higher levels of positive emotions, life satisfaction, vitality, optimism and lower levels of depression and stress.
  2. Exercise: Those who kept gratitude journals on a weekly basis exercised more regularly, reported fewer physical symptoms, felt better about their lives as a whole, and were more optimistic about the upcoming week compared to those who recorded hassles or neutral life events (Emmons & McCullough, 2003).
  3. Empathy: People with a strong disposition toward gratitude have the capacity to be empathic and to take the perspective of others.  They are rated as more generous and more helpful by people in their social networks (McCullough, Emmons, & Tsang, 2002).
  4. Materialism:  Grateful individuals place less importance on material goods; they are less likely to judge their own and others success in terms of possessions accumulated; they are less envious of wealthy persons; and are more likely to share their possessions with others relative to less grateful persons.
  5. Connection: Grateful people are more likely to acknowledge a belief in the interconnectedness of all life and a commitment to and responsibility to others (McCullough et. al., 2002).
  6. Focus: The process will help you focus on what really matters.
  7. Self-awareness: Keeping a gratitude diary will help you learn more about yourself.
  8. Positive Vibe: A useful tool to use if you are feeling down. Shift your energy back to a positive vibe by reading your Gratitude Diary and seeing everything that you are thankful for.
  9. Goal Attainment: People who kept gratitude lists were more likely to have made progress toward important personal goals (academic, interpersonal and health-based).
  10. Helping Others: Those that kept gratitude journals were more likely to report having helped someone with a personal problem or having offered emotional support to another, relative to the hassles or social comparison condition.

A few tips for maintaining a Gratitude Diary

  1. Purchase a beautiful book or diary to acknowledge the significance of your Gratitude Diary. A special place to record and journal.
  2. Plan to write your Gratitude Diary every night before bed. I find it easier to write at night so that I can reflect and process my day.
  3. Keep your Gratitude Diary to hand so that it is easily accessible at night such as by your bed.
  4. Set a number of things you are going to record each night. It can be between 3-10 items.
  5. Record whatever you are thankful for and it may differ from everyone else. This is your personal diary so record your own personal thoughts. It doesn’t have to be deep thoughts. You can record simple things such as “family”, “sunshine” and “this evening’s dinner”. Just record what feels right for you.
  6. Challenge yourself to come up with something new each day. Remember tiny things can have an effect such as noticing a rainbow, seeing new leaves on the trees. Be fully aware during your day and acknowledge these items in your diary.
  7. Have a gratitude partner. To establish healthy habits it is useful to share with others. Find a like-minded friend who you can share your Gratitude Diary and discuss the effects of the diary.

The best time to start your Gratitude Diary is NOW! Give it a go and experience the benefits for yourself.

Gratitude opens the door to…. the power, the wisdom, the creativity of the universe. You open the door through gratitude.” ~ Deepak Chopra

Season’s Greetings

julie-christmas-crop

juliebladon.com

As we head into the festive season, I would like to thank the yogis that I have had the pleasure of sharing yoga with, all of my Lomi Lomi clients and those around the globe who have listened to my guided meditations. 

I am most grateful for your support, kindness and inspiration you have shown me over the year. It has been a wonderful and busy 2015.  I have had the pleasure of working with a wide array of yoga students in Devon, Wales and on retreat in Devon & Spain.

The two Yoga at the Beach sessions in the summer raised £203 for two charities.  A big thank you to everyone that supported these sessions.  I will plan Yoga at the Beach sessions for summer 2016.  It is always enjoyable doing yoga on the beach!

My yoga colleague, Jackie, and I had a great time at Wilderness Festival and Green Man.  We were part of the in-house therapist team for Wild Wellbeing. Festivals are VERY busy but always fun!

The Yoga Nidra workshops are proving very popular.  It is such an honour to share Yoga Nidra and to witness the true benefits of this practice.  I also love to hear from those around the globe who listen to my Yoga Nidra meditations especially children who really love Yoga Sleep.

The new Meditation Classes at Exmouth Leisure Centre have a regular group of dedicated students.  Here’s feedback from one of the students Thank you Julie, for helping us to understand meditation, the physical and spiritual health it brings us. A time to recharge our inner batteries, in our busy lives we all need some quiet time, realising that once we can find the time everything else seems to fall into place.”

Finally a big thank you to the venues, yoga studios and retreat centres that I work out of across the year.  Your support is always appreciated.

I will be taking a break to refresh and replenish ready for a busy 2016.  I will hopefully have some creative time to focus on exciting yoga developments in the pipeline, to finish the next draft of my children’s book, to write new guided meditations and have some time to “just be”.

2016 is already shaping up to be my busiest year to date!  Yoga Adventure in the Himalayas Tour in March, two Aloha Yoga Retreats on Dartmoor, Luxury Yoga Intensive in Greece, Yoga Nidra workshops in Exeter and Sidmouth, weekly yoga classes, weekly meditation classes, Lomi Lomi massages, new guided meditation downloads and yoga e-courses.

For upcoming weekly yoga classes, workshops and events click here.

I look forward to seeing you all in 2016!  Wishing you a peaceful, restful, happy and healthy Christmas & New Year.

Unplugged Christmas

unplugged-Chirstmas-digital-detox

The Christmas holidays and New Year can be hectic. Searching for the perfect gifts for everyone, completing work in advance of the holidays, Christmas parties, getting all of the food in, preparing food, making time to catch up with friends and family. We can become very frazzled and worn out. This holiday season is a perfect time to unplug from your devices and take a digital detox.

  • Take a Break from your devices

Do you find yourself spending endless hours staring at your computer or device screen? Get lost in endless links and find you have wasted hours surfing the internet. Take a break. Give yourself a rest. Get some exercise. Try yoga and meditation.  Spend some time in silent contemplation.  Spend quality time with friends and family. You’ll feel refreshed, you’ll have more focus, you will feel energised and less likely to become distracted.

  • Turn off your devices for better posture

By switching off your devices for an extended period of time you will begin to notice a better posture. An opening of the front of your body, shoulders moving back and realignment of your upper spine. Your energy will open up, you will interact more naturally with others, you will appear more approachable and you will be more present. This will lead to better eye contact, deeper conversations, a sense of relaxation and great empathy towards others.

  • Not in the bedroom

Winter is the time for rest, rejuvenation, reflection, time to go within and to slow down. It is important not to take devices to bed with you. Looking at screens late into the evening and in bed prevents you from switching off properly and will affect your natural sleeping patterns. The blue light from screens suppresses melatonin in the body which makes us more alert as we are going to sleep. You may find you are getting enough hours sleep but it may not be a high quality sleep. If you normally use your phone as an alarm clock, buy an alarm clock. Over the holidays you may have the opportunity not to set your alarm and allow yourself to catch up on sleep.

  • Have proper conversations to feel more connected

Create bonds with others by having proper conversations. Gain insight into someone’s mind by having conversations. Conversations can be memorable and engaging, you will learn new things about others and yourself. Don’t jump on Google to find the answer, allow the conversation to develop as you explore the answers. It’s a lot more fun!

  • Switch off to improve your memory

Even after a few days without technology, you are more likely to remember obscure details about others. Neuroscientists believe that this is because when people are more present in conversations, their brains are able to process and store new information more easily. With the many distractions of technology, our brains have been trained not to register seemingly insignificant details. These minor facts are actually very important in the process of bonding and learning about other people. Rather than taking endless photographs we can be present and in the moment, taking in the details and using all of our senses to absorb the information. We will have a greater recall of events when we are fully present.

  • Developing New Perspectives

When you are offline for a while, it gives you space to review your career or relationships. You may wish to address your habits surrounding your health, fitness and lifestyle. You can really focus on yourself and discover areas you wish to transform.

  • Get creative

Stepping away from your devices can allow you to find new ways to be creative and achieve a state of flow. This time and space will help original thinking and big ideas. You may wish to try something new such as dancing, singing, making Christmas cards, baking a cake, creating gifts, mindful colouring in, silent meditation. The list is endless, don’t limit yourself and give new things a try!

  • Change your morning routine

Instead of checking your social media or email first thing, write down on paper three things that you are grateful for. Appreciation can make you a happier person and more positive. Doing this evokes positive sentiments, so when you’re feeling low reading over this list can be a great reminder of all the good things in your life.

  • Get outside

Make the most of the great outdoors and lose yourself in green space. A day out without your phone can feel liberating. You will more fully absorb and appreciate your surroundings. Being in a natural environment does wonders for your clearing your mind. Getting out into daylight in winter can really help with our wellbeing and promote a more positive mood.

  • Ask a stranger for directions

Try not to rely on Google Maps for every turn. Asking somebody for directions forces us to engage in human connection. It could put a smile on your face, and theirs – people love knowing they’ve helped someone out. Plus, you could get some inside knowledge of the local area that a screen digital map couldn’t tell you.

  • Eat, drink and be merry… but don’t post it!

Enjoy the festive season. Have fun with friends and family. Experience great food and new places but please resist the urge to post every detail online. Switch off your phone and appreciate the present moment. Being present and mindful will make your Christmas even more memorable.

  • Start a digital swear-jar

To keep your good digital habitats going into the New Year you could start a digital “swear-jar” with friends, family or colleagues. Every time someone checks their phone mid conversation, they have to put money in the digital “swear-jar”.  This really highlights the amount that people use their phones while engaging with others. You can use the collection for a gadget free night out, you’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll raise funds!

Use this holiday period to balance and set new boundaries. Allow yourself to completely rest and rejuvenate. Take the time to gain control over your devices rather than the other way around!

Have wonderfully restful and peaceful Christmas and New Year.

Yoga at Exmouth Beach Summer 2015

Beach-Yoga-2015-edit

As I prepare my final newsletter of the year and reflecting on 2015, I realised that I did not upload a post to update you all on the Yoga at Exmouth Beach Sessions that took place in the summer.

I scheduled two beach yoga sessions this summer as the previous year had been so popular.

Thankfully we had dry weather and even some sunshine (!) for both sessions.  Many of you attended, some travelling a fair distance.  A BIG THANK YOU to everyone that supported the sessionsYou raised a total of £203 for the following two charities.

I will schedule Yoga at the Beach for summer 2016 and will let you know the dates as soon as they are confirmed.

Nepal Earthquake Appeal
On Saturday 25 April a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal. It severely shook the lives of at least 8m people and left many homeless.  Nepal’s major cities, including the capital Kathmandu, have been badly damaged and rural areas near the epicentre have been completely cut off by avalanches.

DEC member agencies and their partners are working urgently to provide emergency shelter, food, clean water and blankets.  Once immediate, life-saving needs are met they will work with individuals, families and communities to support them to rebuild their lives.

Ramana’s Garden Children’s Home
Ramana’s Garden Children’s Home in Rishikesh, India is home to over 60 at risk children and a free school for over 160 students from Ramana’s Garden and local underprivileged families. The school provides classes from kindergarten to eighth grade.  Below is the thank you letter received from Ramana’s Garden Children’s Home.
