Indonesian Yoga

 

    Silat Sandhi Murti is a unique and rare form of Yoga that originates from the Hindu Indonesian island of Bali.This healing art combines influences from Indian Yoga, Chinese Qigong (Chi Kung) and the ancient culture of the Indonesian archipelago.

      SSM Yoga uses breathwork, gentle stretching, meditation, visualisation, and sequences of movements ( called 'Jurus') to promote improved physical health/well-being,' mental relaxation and ultimately spiritual development. The system consists of exercises performed lying down, seated, and standing. Included are a sequence of 5  exercises which are designed to cleanse and strengthen the internal organs ( kidneys, liver, heart, spleen and lungs).
      The lying, seated and standing exercises have similar benefits to Hatha yoga, Qigong and meditation. The Jurus are comparable to the Forms practised in Tai Chi. Like the Tai Chi Form (s), the Jurus of SSM Yoga improve strength, flexibility, co-ordination and balance.
       This art is believed to develop the internal energy or life force. In China this energy is known as 'Chi' and in India as 'Prana'. In Indonesia it is referred to as' Tenaga Dalam'  (Inner Power or Inner force). The development of this energy is traditionally believed to lead not only to good physical health but to spiritual enlightenment.
       Although  SSM Indonesian yoga is starting to spread throughout the World ,it remains a very scarce art in this country. At present I am the only instructor qualified to teach it with the express permission (and support) of the Head Quarters in Denpasar, Bali Island.

Jin Shin Jyutsu

Jin Shin Jyutsu is an art which helps to harmonise the body’s energy. Based on traditional Chinese medical theory, it is a way of releasing the energy blockages which cause ill-health. It is a gentle and subtle art which works on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels. Through a 1 day ‘Self-Help’ class you can learn simple ways to balance the body’s energy. Three separate Self-Help classes are available with accompanying handouts.

 

Individual one hour treatment sessions are available. Clients are always given appropriate self-help to continue working on themselves. Contact us to book a treatment session or a Self-Help class.
