Resident Yogi Master- Stephen

After the impact of too much sport, too many injuries and illness when young I was somewhat broken by my mid 20’s, with just tablets and not much else from health providers in UK, I took responsibility for my health upon myself, I got back to a place of equilibrium using natural methods. I decided on the path of Holistic Wellbeing as my direction.

 

First studying with Quantum Metta in London for Holistic, Sports & Remedial and Thai Yoga Massage, I then nipped to Thailand to study some advanced practices in the Old Medicine Hospital Chaing Mai & Hang Dong. For the next 7 years I was studying, practicing and living between UK & India, mainly Kerala & Tamil Nadu.

Where I was under the supervision of various yoga teachers & Ayurvedic Dr’s, primarily. Chandra Kumar Balachandaran, Rameshji and India’s Cosmic Wisdom. In 2018 I was a graduate of Natural Wisdom Leaders, with Ayni Foundation, this was a 1-year Intensive Initiation Program involving Traditional Natural Wisdom from Europe & Peru, culminating in a trip to the Peruvian Amazon. This continued for another 2 years at a less intensive pace. I continue to see 1-1 clients and run workshops and retreats in UK & India, whilst striving to live a life of balance in the Natural World.

Hatha Yoga & Ayurveda

Hatha Yoga incorporates physical poses(asanas), breathing(pranayama) and meditation exercises. It aims to bring balance physically (Ha-sun) and mentally (Tha-moon). It can often be a little diluted in western practice, focusing more the physical practices. By developing a regular practice, we are provided with a foundation to build a healthier, happier more balanced life.

 

Ayurveda is the Indian Science of Life, incorporating Nature, herbs, plants, the Elements and our own internal abilities to heal ourselves and maintain optimum health. It is based on prevention of illness or disease and works hand in hand with Hatha Yoga. Ayurveda views each person’s health individually as opposed to a one-size-fits-all approach, it also uses the basis that our thoughts, words, actions as well as diet and exercise contribute to our overall health and wellbeing.

Mindfulness and Shamanic Practices

Mindful & Shamanic practices help us to develop a deeper connection and purpose with our life and all life around us. It is one of the oldest healing traditions and brings us back into vibration and right relationship with Nature, the Earth and the Cosmos. Using drums, rattles, stories, nature and the rhythm of the Elements inside & outside of ourselves to bring us back to a grounded centred place.
