Where will it take place?
Nant Gwrtheyrn has some of the most breath-taking beautiful scenery in The Llyn Peninsula, the very steep drive down to 'The Nant' will make you gasp and the walk down to the beach is stunning, sea is so blue and clear, never too busy, very quiet and peaceful. The old mining village is very interesting historically, always worth a visit and don't worry - it's not a prerequisite to speak Welsh - although the accommodation and setting may well tempt you to sign up for a language course!
Nant Gwrtheyrn was an abandoned village in the 1970s following the closure of the quarries. The redundant houses, offices, chapel and shops constructed during the quarry’s heyday between 1860 and 1920,when over 2,000 men worked the granite, had fallen into rack and ruin.
Ymddiriedolaeth Nant Gwrtheyrn, a registered charity was formed through the energies of Dr Carl Clowes, the local GP and others and eventually they bought the village and set about renovating the old buildings and developed a centre to teach Welsh to adults which also attracted other groups to enjoy the unique ambience of this peaceful valley.
Between 2007 and 2010 a £5m renovation of the listed village at Nant Gwrtheyrn was realised through grant. This grant aid has helped to establish a unique residential learning centre and visitor attraction at Nant Gwrtheyrn.

Join me on an exploration of one of the most exciting sequences in Dru Yoga, the Vitality Sequence. It is a powerful method to open the gateway to the energy source deep within you. Be prepared to be fully stretched and mobilised in all directions! Let go of tiredness, lethargy and despondency. It is the panacea to boost energy.This is a dynamic, flowing sequence designed to improve endurance and fitness, and to access abundant energy. The Vitality Sequence will help you to:
- get into the dynamic you
- rise to any challenge
- overcome negative emotions with ease
- strengthen your character and your ability to adapt to stress and change
I will explain the three stages of the Vitality Sequence.
I will introduce the concept the the 'three gates" and take you through this powerful programme step by step.
How to open up the 'three gates' - the mooladhara, the svadishana and the manipura charkas
Raising the energy up the anahata - the heart centre
Opening up the 'Hrit' centre
In this workshop I will introduce you to a new take on the Vitality Sequence. Vitality in life means having enthusiasm for life, dynamism, getting out into the world with joy, power and strength. I have developed the sequence and tweaked in various ways to arrive at 2 different versions.
This workshop will bring strength into your whole persona. This creates peace, light, and spaciousness throughout.
We will be working with a dynamic version of the Vitality Sequence using two fitness concepts. Firstly Isotonic strengthening is when we are moving the muscles when they are engaged. When we use the Vitality Sequence to focus on Isotonic strengthening, we will be doing several repetitions of the movements.
Isometric strengthening involves keeping tension in the muscles when holding a posture. During the third part of the vitality, we will focus on holding the postures to engage isometric strengthening.
We will start with some fun Activation and an Energy Block Release Sequence. There will then be extensive body preps as we get ourselves ready for the sequence - taught in stages then doing the three full sequences together.
We will break for tea and snacks.
The day will finish with a relaxation and a powerful meditation.
Benefits of the Vitality Sequence:
Physical - It stimulates all major organs, tones all muscle groups, releases stiffness of the spine and shoulders and eliminates tiredness. The digestive system gets a boost and energy levels are boosted.
Mental - Increased vitality allows you to overcome any negative emotion with ease. It can also strengthen your ability to adapt to stress and to easily manage change.
Energetic - Dynamic energy is drawn up to the heart,throat and crown.
A good level of stamina and fitness is required to attend this workshop.

A Gong Bath is a form of meditation, a sound therapy. It has been around for thousands of years as an aid in healing. During the meditation, all levels of your Being - physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual - will benefit from the deep, healing resonance of the gong. For most people, a gong bath is a deeply relaxing and peaceful experience. The gong has a clearing effect on emotional issues, breaking up limiting and negative thought patterns, and as a result, is an excellent therapy option for stress related issues, such as depression and anxiety. The listener only has to let go and let the sound of the gong do the work.
A time to celebrate as the New Moons and Full Moons occur through the astrological calendar. We humans sometimes need to make massive changes in our lives and it could be that those changes should start here.
