Workshops with Alex Hanly
Re-wilding the body
Using a blend of yoga and movement medicine we will consciously explore the body heart and mind in stillness and movement. Discover how elemental your body is, observe you relationship to gravity(earth), heat (fire), breath (air), fluid (water) and space (ether). Let your body lead you on the road to building more trust and respect for your systems natural intelligence. Learn how to notice and respect your natural rhythms and seasons. Land is awe of the miracle of nature within and without you. This practice will be done outside in the beautiful bio diverse land of Green Farm.
Yoga and Chanting
From the sacred to the profane your voice can express it all. Liberate yourself from limiting habits and beliefs. Let the voice guide you into fluidity and play in the joy of sound. During this session we will explore the mechanical biological apparatus of the vocal body. We will explore chanting and singing from the heart. We will receive the medicine of vibration. We will come together in community (come-to-unity) with our voices and sing, an ancient experience all our ancestors shared and knew held with great importance and meaning.

At Green Farm we have a very simple philosophy around eating healthily - cook fresh, home-produce when possible, use minimum processed foods, served as nature intended and cater to whatever dietary requirements you may have, whether you are here for a retreat, Spa Day or Stay. We like to cook 'in season' when we can with as much as possible coming from the Green Farm Community Wildlife & Vegetable Garden and, of course, from our own farm animals. We are guided by our in-house naturopath, Alice Yeates, and we work with suppliers who share the same values as us.
