Your Body Speaks Your Mind – Workshop

Natural Therapist and yoga practitioner Janine Gaddie is embarking on a New Zealand workshop tour and we are pleased to be hosting her this October.

Presenting an evening workshop designed to explore how the mind and body are not separate but rather a unified network of intelligence. We’ll explore the science of emotions and what happens to thoughts and feelings in the body. Bringing to light how pain, posture, tension and the structure of individual body parts can explain why you are in the shape you are in – physically and emotionally. We will connect intimately with our emotional anatomy as an integral part of yoga, healing and expression.

Wednesday October 22 2014
6:00 – 9:00pm
Cost $40 ($35 early bird price paid by October 7th)
Book a place by emailing
