Suitable for all levels of experience and fitness, Hilly will guide you to move your body slowly and deliberately into different poses that gently challenge your strength and flexibility whilst helping you achieve a sense of peace, mindfulness and gratitude.

Forest Bathing & Breath

Forest Bathing

We often look to nature as a place of healing, to soothe us and rejuvenate our spirit. We feel such comfort in nature, perhaps this is due to our ancestors being intimately tied to the natural environment, perhaps it’s where we feel a greater connection to our authentic self. In nature we can feel the opening of our senses and awareness, we can feel alive and immerse ourselves in the present moment, letting go of thought and surrendering to the gifts of the natural world. This simple method of being calm and quiet amongst the trees, observing nature whilst breathing deeply can help us de-stress and boost health and wellbeing in a natural way.
By paying attention to your breath, observe what you notice while taking in your surroundings using all of your senses. How does the forest make you feel? Take a deep look at nature’s small details. Sit quietly using mindful observation, try to avoid thinking about your daily life. Keep your eyes open, the colours of nature are soothing and comforting. Breathe in the forest and expel the doubts that haunt you.

Breathe - The restorative Power of Breath

Breathwork allows us to disconnect from the mind and reconnect with our body and energy. From this elevated state of awareness, we are able to heal, grow, and expand.
Learn to harness the power of breath when you feel negative emotions such as stress, tension, overwhelm, anxiety, depression, fear, anger, or sadness,  and nourish your being when you feel ready for the deeper layers of love, peace, gratitude, clarity, connection, and profound insight. Surrender to whatever is happening, your body has an innate intelligence and wisdom and it will support you in releasing what no longer serves you.Trust the breath will take you to the deepest level of healing.
A breathwork session taps into an inner empowerment that comes from within you. Your breath can become the source of answers, insights and freedom and guide you in your life, your work and your place in the world.


Not just a spiritual practice, to truly understand the effect breathing has on the body, it’s important to acknowledge the autonomic nervous system. This is the bodily system that regulates the internal organs, instincts, and other primal functions typically outside our conscious awareness. This has two core functions, the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. The sympathetic nervous system drives the “fight or flight” response and when our breathing is short and rapid, our stress hormones kick in, and can drain our adrenals, leaving us depleted. The parasympathetic nervous system is our “rest and digest” mode, which aids in dropping the heart rate and blood pressure, initiating a state of calm. We often suffer from anxiety and stress, therefore we need more practices that attend to our inner nurturing, our parasympathetic nervous system.
When we use the breath skilfully, we can support the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems, ensuring healthy physiological responses. Different breath practices can ignite different states, either elevating energy or relaxing the body. We can control our emotional states and activate the parasympathetic or sympathetic systems, depending on what we need and how we’re feeling. Anxiety, poor sleep, and stress are significant factors in chronic health conditions, all of which could be improved by disciplined attentiveness to the breath.

There is always something new to learn, and always an opportunity to keep evolving
