2. Day spa experience 

If you find it difficult to get away for a night or two, what better way to than to escape for a day with one of our day spa experiences? Our new ‘Feel the Warmth’ spa day is just £135pp and perfect for unwinding.

When vata rises in autumn it can leave you feeling worn out, brittle, and susceptible to illness. If you’re experiencing dry skin, bad circulation, restless or fitful sleep, erratic routines, eating habits and bowel movements, constipation, or erratic thinking and a tendency to feel anxious, you may have excess vata.

But even the most sensible amongst us may find ourselves overdosing on the mulled wine and eggnog during the party season – it is Christmas after all.

Breathing exercises

By | SPA | No Comments

We all know the expression ‘as natural as breathing’. And sure, we tend to inhale and exhale without much – if any – thought. But in reality most of us don’t breathe ‘naturally’ at all. Most of us have adopted some pretty bad breathing habits as we’ve grown up, including poor posture, shallow breathing and over-tensed muscles.
