CLASSES into the Autumn 2021

We are now fully open for Live classes, workshops and events following all the protocols of the day that we feel makes the Well Being Centre as safe as it is possible to be…. We very much welcome the return to some normality!

Thankfully we remain covid-free and covid-safe at the Well Being Centre and hope that with all our wonderful teachers, complementary health practitioners and clients following our protocols we shall remain so.

Since we first reopened back in July 2020 for the first time, we have had only positive comments about the quality of our work and the environment we work in. We are so grateful to all of you who were happy to attend classes and workshops and enjoy the treatments that have been available.

Monday 

9.30 – 10.30am Pilates with Nancy Proctor ONLINE ONLY

Pilates is based on the teaching of Joseph Pilates, who built up a body of exercises during World War I that has been adapted over the years to form modern-day Pilates.  Emphasising the connection between physical and mental health, the Principles of Pilates are: Concentration, Control, Core Stability, Breathing, Precision, Stamina, Flow and Relaxation.  Each exercise guides you to gradually develop your body awareness, increase your strength, muscle tone and flexibility, and improve your posture, joint mobility and co-ordination.

I came to Pilates following an injury and quickly learnt that it was a great way to exercise in a calm and safe manner to build back core strength and overall posture.  I felt so passionate about the help that this exercise gave to me and others that I trained to become a teacher. I have since worked with every manner of person, including sports men and women, the more mature, the disabled and the very young. One of the things I love about Pilates is that it is for people of all ages and levels of ability and fitness.

The key to success in Pilates, I believe, is working in a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, while also enjoying the fun that exercise produces through the release of endorphins. We work on the mat and rely on our own body weight to provide the resistance for our muscles to work against. We will sometimes use small pieces of equipment in the class such as soft balls, resistance bands and rings. In this way, we achieve a toned and aligned body. I teach mixed-ability classes, within which I guide each person individually to attain their personal best.

I specialise in orthopaedic Pilates and strengthening the pelvic floor.  My other qualifications are in Garuda, Pilates fusion (barre/yoga/Pilates) and I am also a ASA  swimming instructor.

Cost – £10 advanced payment

“Until I attended Nancy’s class, I never knew there were so many different ways to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, and what’s more the gluts get a super workout, so by training these muscles not only am I preventing any problems later in life, but I am also getting a pert bottom – what’s not to like!”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       Jayne

Tuesday

9.30 – 10.30 am Exercises for Life with Brian Saxton – Movement System for unwinding knots in the body and stopping aches and pains. Starts 14th September.

Learn a simple but effective movement system that opens your body, releasing tension, regaining mobility and balance, and all without the stress and strain of traditional exercise.

We’ve been teaching these movements both in-person and in online classes for over 10 years and have seen fantastic results in people who have either just felt the supposedly ‘normal’ acnes and pains of growing older, and also those who suffer from past injuries or chronic pain.

We’re excited to start a new class at the Well Being Centre in Stone Cross, which is open to everyone regardless of age or experience, and we hope to see you there.

To book please register at /https://exercisesforlife.co.uk/

Or call Brian on 07359104533

‘These movements from Exercises For Life are Amazing! I’ve had neuropathic pain/numbness for years. The first class I took with Brian and David, served as the best diagnostic tool I have ever utilized. It hi-lighted the problem areas throughout my body & showed me what I could/couldn’t do and where my balance could improve. Now their course is helping me to increase balance, flexibility and fluidity as I move. These sessions are So life-Enriching! Definitely worth it!😊

I have been studying the eastern energy arts and philosophies for the past 25 years, practicing and learning in Europe, India and the far east, working with both somatic bodywork and qigong systems.

With my son, David, I have developed a practical system of movements that rebalances people’s bodies, builds strength, releases tensions, and creates more flexibility. It uses some of the movements handed down by various teachers who have a grounding in qigong, further shaped and developed by my training in somatic bodywork, the movements of Phillip Beach and refined by my experience in working with students in my weekly classes over the past 20 years.

7.00 – 8.15pm Qigong with Meditation with Nick Neter


With roots in Chinese medicine, martial arts, and philosophy, Qigong is traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance Qi .Qigong literally means cultivating energy. Qigong practice involves rhythmic breathing coordinated with slow stylized repetition of fluid movements with a calm mindful state. Qigong is practiced daily throughout China and increasingly worldwide.

Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years and can be done by people of all faith traditions. With the practice of meditation the mind settles and a sense of ease, tranquillity and joy arise. This can lead to insight and wisdom.

Cost: £9 per session or pay for a block of 4 £32 and use over 2 months.

“Pilates is definitely not just for girls. Nancy is a natural teacher and has worked tirelessly to improve my flexibility and core strength to alleviate my lower-back pain. Somehow she’s able to tailor her classes to cater for my needs while also targeting areas that others in the group need to work on.  I’ve been coming for a year now but my body feels ten years younger!”

Hey, I am Nicole, a qualified yoga teacher, paddle board instructor and events planner from Eastbourne. I run my business Breathe With Ease which offers group and private yoga classes, SUP tuition, corporate workshops and wellness events across Sussex.

I have had a passion for sport and fitness from a young age, which took me along the path of studying Sport and Exercise Science and gaining my level 2 and 3 Fitness Instruction qualification. Soon after I gained my YTT qualification in Thailand, and I took my teachings abroad for a few years to Greece as a yoga teacher and fitness instructor at resorts. Opening my eyes to the world of yoga and mindfulness within the wellness industry.

Once arriving back in the UK I started my business in 2019 where I have since excelled in offering an array of beginner, intermediate, mens only and post-injury yoga classes. Focusing on vinyasa, restorative and yin yoga to my community. As well as planning popular events and offering workshops to major businesses employees.

I love offering a sense of calmness, self-love and an opportunity to progress your personal practice in my classes. My passion in yoga and breathwork guides me through each day & I love inviting beginners, busy mums and dads, and those who need help on de-cluttering their mind, breathing with ease .

Friday

10 – 11am Qigong with Meditation with Nick (Live and Online)

qigong_group needles in the sea

“Touch your inner space, which is nothingness, as silent and empty as the sky; it is your inner sky. Once you settle down in your inner sky, you have come home, and a great maturity arises in your actions, in your behavior. Then whatever you do has grace in it. Then whatever you do is a poetry in itself. You live poetry; your walking becomes dancing, your silence becomes music.” ~Osho

As you become more sensitive to Qi in your Qigong practice,
you will become more sensitive to Qi in your everyday life.This opens new avenues of perception and awareness.
