Sunday 9th September 2018
I am delighted to announce that due to popular demand "The Gift For Life Workshop" has been invited back to Letterston Memorial Hall, Station Road, SA62 5RY, in Pembrokeshirre, and will take place Sunday 9th September, from 10.30am - 5pm.
Over the last 6 months I’ve been working with an amazing teacher, Nadia Smith.
Having struggled with a knee injury and arthritis for the last 4 years, I've spent a lot of money and tried almost everything to improve my mobility and pain levels. Fortunately, I found my way to Nadia and working with her has made a massive difference. Best of all, she’s taught me how to help myself.
Nadia’s unique True to Our Roots approach teaches how easily we can self-heal, based on a primordial and natural way of moving that activates the body's natural fluids and energy flow. This method comes from the ancient Taoist philosophy used in Chinese Medicine and its self-healing art of Qi Gong, based on the harmonious union of Mind, Body and Spirit. It is particularly helpful for people with joint and back problems, arthritis and injuries and problems caused by stress and tension.
Nadia is offering a one day workshop to a small group, here in Bath, for the first time, where you’ll have the chance to learn her core techniques and experience this easy, flowing, joyful work:. The workshop is fun and you will feel happier in your self and more energised in your body at the end of it.
Testimonials from the Recent Cheltenham Workshop
First, I was achy between the shoulder blades mainly, but from all the postural correction which was long overdue. I'm making sure that I correct myself every time I become aware. I've put some little memory spells around the house where I do a lot of bending, to ping and remind me to hip hinge.
I am working on the pillow situation in bed, the leg one is OK, but I do need my 2 feather pillows for my head. I think that being feather, my head nestles into them to find it's alignment.
I was actually a centimetre taller the following morning, though by evening that had shrunk back again, but I'm working on it :)
This morning when I woke up I actually did 2 very spontaneous stretches, and I realised that I hadn't done them like that for possibly years.
Also of note, I came out of Tesco’s yesterday afternoon, carrying 2 heavy shopping bags, into the biting cold and spitting rain, a 10-minute walk ahead of me to Mum and Dad's, and was walking to the car in a state of unawareness - when a lady coming towards me said "How nice to see someone smiling" and indeed though I hadn't realised it, I was! I can only assume I'd shaken out some stress.
Testimonials from the Recent Letterston Workshop
"Where do I begin!
I so enjoyed the day. I found it empowering, enlightening and uplifting and feel that I need to listen to my body more and show it more respect. I am finding it difficult remembering all I learned but my walking has improved and posture in my car!"
"Thanks so much again for the workshop at the weekend. A fantastic experience and very powerful!
I have had a big, big shift since Sunday and the workshop and was in quite extreme process of releasing Monday and yesterday, but it’s moving fast and there’s been a huge clearing around the dynamic we discussed. So thank you again for helping me make the connection between these issues and my body. Amazing.
Sending you much love and appreciation."

Nadia's mission is to help people become more aware of their body and its alarm signals and how easy it can be to self-heal. Her method is based on our primordial and natural way of moving from inside out, activating the natural fluids in our body, and the energy flow within our internal organs and their connected meridians.
This method comes from the ancient Taoist philosophy used in Traditional Chinese Medicine and its self-healing art of Qi Gong, based on the harmonious union of "MIND, BODY, SPIRIT."
"The aim of True to our Roots Qi Gong is to achieve Whole Body Enlightenment."
