Mehndi (henna) is a sacred art form that is practised in Indian, Middle Eastern and North African countries, mainly by women. Used at marriages and festivals, it is a ritual that is used to invite grace, prosperity and happiness into one’s lives and homes.
At this workshop, you will learn the history and traditions of this beautiful art form and the meanings of some of the signs and symbols used in different cultures, as well as making your own paste and cones and then creating some beautiful designs. You will also cover the necessary health & safety of henna including the dangers of black henna.
Please bring along a glass container with a lid (a large jam jar will be fine) in order to make up your own paste.
Somatic Movement Education is a gentle system of exercise that brings about an ease and freedom of movement in the body. Gentle, mindful exercises are done with a spirit of investigation into one’s body, helping to create a deeper awareness and allowing you to release holding patterns that cause pain and restrict movement.
In these classes, you will learn how to release and let go of tight, painful muscles, layer by layer. Working from the inside out, you will develop a new flexibility and freedom in your everyday movements.
Somatic Movement Education is for anyone who has chronic pain, aches or stiffness or for those who just want to keep their body youthful.
