Relaxation Night

You are welcome to come along for a relaxing evening of Yoga Nidra.

Friday 13th January 2017

7.15pm for 7.30pm start

Anyone can do Yoga Nidra. Yoga Nidra is a form of deep relaxation. It quietens your mind and releases physical tension in your body. In a state of deep relaxation, your heart beat and breathing slow down, and your body and mind become deeply calm.

Laying down comfortably, you will be guided to focus your awareness to the natural rhythm of your breath and then turn your attention inwards, shifting your awareness to different parts of your body.

Location – Gympie Yoga & Relaxation Centre, 7 Alma Street, Gympie

The Connection

Sue and fellow health practitioner, Rowena Witham, owner of Meditate for Health & Wellbeing, hosted a screening of The Connection documentary film on 20th April 2016 to a sell out crowd of 400 patrons at The Heritage Theatre in Gympie.

Sue and Rowena have both had profound personal experiences using the mind body connection and believe this is possible for everyone. They felt passionate about bringing the film to Gympie as they believe the film will create a greater awareness in the community of how important the mind body connection is to health and wellbeing. From this awareness people will realise how this connection can create choices and self-empowerment to live a happy, well balanced life. The Connection is a film featuring world leading experts in mind body medicine and compelling true stories of recovery.

The inspirational night started with heartfelt music by Ziko Hart and the screening of the film was followed by a live Skype session with producer, Shannon Harvey. This was followed by drawing the lucky winners of Supporter Gifts kindly donated by event supporters. Channon Lawrence Dental, Kahuna Mist, Little Haven Palliative Care, Gympie & Yoga & Relaxation Centre, Gympie & District Women’s Health Centre, Go Vita Gympie, Epiphany Cafe, Akiki Wellbeing, All Ages Physio and Sunshine Health. The evening finished with refreshments and plenty of conversation.

The Connection is a film about how frontier research is proving that there is a direct connection between your mind and your health. Producer of the film, Shannon Harvey was diagnosed at age 24 with an autoimmune disease. Her immune system had become hyperactive and was attacking normal, healthy tissues. Her muscles and joints were inflamed and she was told if her disease progressed she could end up with organ failure, or wheelchair bound.  In search of a cure, Shannon tried everything from drugs to alternative therapies and everything in between. But she was still sick. There was one thing she did know. When she was stressed, she got worse and with a background in journalism, Shannon sought answers in pioneering science. On her journey to getting better, Shannon realised that in order to change her health she needed to change her mind.

Sue had the honour of meeting Shannon Harvey at the Yoga Australia Conference in March.
