‘Hayley’s sessions both create and hold space for embodied exploration and discovery against the backdrop of the seasons in such a beautiful, simple and profound way…with tender and strong care, with an encouraging beckoning, an invitation to drop down into deep slow somatic being, to re-find ourselves in body, within each season.
It was so clear to feel the thoughtful and feeling-full crafting behind these sessions.
Thank you Hayley…it was precious to be graced with this experience!’

FAQ’s

What is?

Embodied Rest: These are gently guided relaxation sessions, drawing on the practices of yoga nidra
and somatic relaxation modalities.
With its focus on the body, Embodied Rest will offer you space to deeply rest and restore.

Somatic Movement: There are so many different approaches to Somatic Movement. Hayley draws upon her studies and experience in Authentic Movement, the work of Miranda Tufnell, Andrea Olsen, Linda Hartley and Emily Conrad, as well as other somatic movement lineages.

You can expect to be gently guided into the wisdom of your own body, exploring ways to nourish and resource each body system through movement.
There is always permission to listen to what you need in each moment and respond from there.
Come and try it out.

What happens in a session?

We begin with an embodied rest session and ease into gentle somatic movement.
We will then come together to complete the session by learning a harmony song together
which will connect us with nature and / or the season we are currently inhabiting.
Sessions are designed to be embodied, nourishing and connective and heartful.

No, not at all!
The emphasis here is on connection, community, togetherness and celebrating diversity.
