I have been practising Yoga since 2000, completed various courses, deepening my knowledge and personal practice, prior to TeacherTraining Course (TTC). Having been introduced to the Cleansing practices during this time I have increased my knowledge and experience whilst developing a wider interest which led to choosing the topic to research for my TTC Project, finding out more regarding the history of these practices and finding out how some of these practices are being or can be used in Modern times. During the past few years I have shadowed and supported Teachers during the teaching of these practices and have now taken on the task of organising and teaching them twice yearly, Spring & Autumn, as well as offering the shorter practices on a 1-1 or small group basis. An Introduction to Yogic Cleansing Practices (ShatKarmas (6 Actions)). These traditional practices are able to be used as ‘Tools’ to aid general good health and as a practical aid with various Health issues. The main practice I will introduce and demonstrate is Neti (Cleansing the nose using a Saline Solution & special pot) – this has been found to be of benefit for people who suffer from Respiratory conditions such Hay-fever, Allergies, Sinusitis, Migraine, Headaches; also with Depression, Stress, Anxiety and as alleviation & prevention of seasonal coughs & colds. There will also be a short explanation of other practices taught twice yearly in the Satyananda Yoga tradition which work physically on the whole of the Digestive system and have been said to work on many different levels in the body, as well as with specific health issues such as hyperacidity, constipation, low energy or Depression.

April 23rd – Korean Hand Therapy – Kat Chu

I have been practicing Holistic therapies for several years, attaining a BSc in Acupuncture at Lincoln University. My mother came over from Singapore in the 1960’s and worked in the NHS for 40 Years and as an Acupuncturist for over twenty of these years. I am also lucky enough to have studied under Korean Hand Therapy Master Jong Baik. I currently run community Acupuncture Projects within Nottingham, and teach classes in Chinese Medicine and Philosophy.

Koryo Hand Therapy (KHT) is called Koryo Sooji Chim, Korean Hand Acupuncture or Sooji chim. KHT (Koryo Hand Therapy) theorizes that the hands are a micro-cosmos of the body.

The function of the human body can be manipulated by stimulating the corresponding points on our hands, according to the theory of ‘Koryo Hand Therapy’, there are 14 micro-meridians and 345 acupuncture points on our hands which regulate the internal organs of human body.

These acupuncture points may be stimulated by using the following instruments: hand needles, Seoam press-pellets, Seoam Moxa, E-beam, Magnets or KHT silver ring.

May 28th – Pam Brown – Graphology

Graphology has been a big part of my life since I qualified in 1988. During the last 24 years I have written articles for national magazines and newspapers, given many business seminars and analysed for personnel recruitment. On a lighter note, I am a guest speaker on prominent cruise liners. While living in Kent, I taught the subject at Adult Education classes for a few years. I really enjoy discovering what makes people tick and passing on my knowledge to others, in an interesting, yet fun way.

My talk will be a glimpse into this fascinating subject, but a lot will be revealed! We will look at some of the traits in handwriting that can reveal among other things, our strengths, weaknesses and any hidden talents. Even the way we dot our ‘i’s and cross our ‘t’s can show ambition and determination or lack of it. Our emotional and physical well-being are often shown in our script along with signs of tension or stress. Overall, the talk will focus on many positive traits and how we can become more self-aware.

June 25th – Denise Pole – Crystal Therapy

I now work as a therapist from home and at the Natural Health Centre in Carrington, Notts, but my interest in Crystals started many moons ago, probably when I was about six or seven years old. I was first attracted to their colours and shapes but never realised until about 8 years ago, when I had first qualified as a therapist, how beneficial they could be in helping many illnesses of the mind and body. Another plus factor is their cost: many can be purchased on a shoestring and their size doesn’t detract from their properties.

Recently, one of my clients had suffered complications during surgery, and commented that for the first time in four months she was in no pain in her wrist – I had given her a palm stone to hold during the session. I am never surprised by the reactions received.

A useful stone to have in the house or therapy room is a piece of Selenite; this stone promotes a calm and peaceful atmosphere and, on a psychological level, helps with good judgement and insight. However, as ever person has their own individuality, you may find other possibilities and attributes for this particular gem.

The talk will consist of a short meditation with amethyst, a longer treatment (hematite shield – volunteer would be great) and hopefully some useful information for us all to take away and enjoy.

July 23rd – Biomechanics – Libby Upton

I am a fully qualified Biomechanics Coach and a member of the United Kingdom Biomechanics Coaching Association, specialising in low back pain, injury prevention and optimal performance.

I began my working life as an Event Manager for the corporate market. After ten years’ travelling, it was time to change direction and in 2006 I became Manager of a women-only gym in Loughborough, before leaving to set up my own business.

After qualifying in Sports Massage in 2009, I gained my Biomechanics Coaching Diploma, before going on to complete a level 4 REPS course in low back pain

This talk will focus on biomechanics coaching as an alternative treatment for lower back pain.

As a biomechanics coach I use an assessment system that screens muscles, joints and nerves to identify areas of weakness and tightness. Then I prescribe simple exercises to correct dysfunction. These exercises are proving increasingly successful in the treatment and management of back pain as well as preventing further injury.

Please wear comfortable clothing as the presentation will include some practical work. I will show you how to check for possible pelvis dysfunction and demonstrate an exercise to correct the dysfunction.

August 27th – Pilates – Heather Palmer

I trained as a Pilates Instructor with the Pilates Institute in London and own the Move With Pilates Studio in Southwell. I teach Pilates on mats and on equipment, to small groups and 1:1 sessions. At the studio I have a full range of Pilates equipment – reformers, a spine corrector, combo chair, trapeze table, and a wide variety of smaller equipment – stability balls, foam rollers, etc. Over the years I have undergone further training to teach Pilates to specialist groups, eg, ante and post natal clients, and those with back pain.

Pilates is an holistic exercise method developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century. It works on many levels teaching correct movement patterns which results in increased body awareness and better posture. Pilates strengthens the deep core muscles, systematically exercising all the muscle groups in the body. It aims to co-ordinate the upper and lower muscles groups with the centre of the body. This has a dramatic effect on strength, flexibility, posture, co-ordination and balance. Pilates strengthens the body, lengthens the muscles without building bulk, and focuses the mind. The system is suitable for all ages and all levels of fitness.

September 24th – Integrated Health – Jon Critoph – Outreach Manager, FHT

Never has there been a time when our health and that of our nation has been under so much threat and there are calls for an integrated approach to health where practitioners from both the allopathic and complementary fields working together with a common aim of improving the wellbeing of the patient and putting them at the centre of their own health. This inspiring talk will introduce you to the world of Integrated Medicine, the work that has already been done and the work that is still required. Come and listen to this talk and become part of the new integrated health movement.

October 22nd – Experiences in Bosnia with The Healing Hands Network – Trish Drew

I qualified as a Complementary Therapist in 2005 and work part time as a mobile therapist offering Swedish Massage, Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Indian Head Massage .

I saw an article about HHN in International Therapist magazine back in 2007 and it made a lasting impression. Last year I finally plucked up the courage to join and I will be going out to Bosnia in August for 2 weeks to work in their clinic in Sarajevo.My talk will be about the work of Healing Hands Network, a registered charity which provides complementary therapies for people who are suffering from the trauma and consequences of war or disaster. Also my own personal experiences in Sarajevo working with people who have experienced the terrible physical and mental effects of rape, torture, landmines and the loss of homes and loved ones.Since 1997 teams of volunteer therapists have worked in Bosnia & Herzegovina and now in the UK to help returning service personnel who may be suffering from the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.My aim is to make more people aware of the work of Healing Hands Network and hopefully to inspire more therapists to join us.
