Demystifying Yoga In Nigeria
Limited Capacity filling up

Yoga is an ancient health practice with roots in Indian & Egyptian culture dating as far back as 3000 BCE, but became a widespread trend in the Western world in the late 80's. Since then, many styles of this physical practice have evolved making it more mainstream and accessible to the global community. 

Studies show that a low-impact exercise such as yoga is more effective in the maintenance of one’s mental health and prevents relapses in people managing depression and stress. Let's talk about it and not carry last with this tried and tested wellness practice.

This session is aimed at showing how yoga can support and anchor your existing spiritual and fitness practices.

Attendees are welcome to participate in a TRAPYOGA demonstration.

Workout/ loose comfortable clothing advised.
Bring a mat and an open mind.

Rise & Shine: Walking Meditation
Limited Capacity seats available

There is a tremendous richness of experience to become aware of as you walk. The body loves movement, and will reward you with pleasure if you pay attention to how it feels! So much of the time we are caught up in our tech-obsessed worlds, thinking about last weeks meeting or next weeks deadlines... Paying attention to the body as you walk will help you to enjoy simply being in the moment.

Walking meditation can be both a formal and informal practice. Walking Meditation provides a different sense of awareness from seating and laying down. You have been walking for so long, now is the time to remind yourself that walking can represent falling forward and moving on.

Everyday Aromatherapy
Limited Capacity seats available

It s no secret that scent can have a powerful effect on your life. Just a hint of a particular aroma can conjure good memories.  It can even have a physical effect on you, depending on what you associate with that aroma.

It s why cultures for centuries have used the sense of smell as a pathway to encourage health and healing. They recognized the relationship between the nose and scent as a way to help unify the physical, psychological, and spiritual aspects of ourselves.

Aromatherapy is the art of using naturally extracted aromatic oils from plants and is often associated with alternative medicine. Learn how you can improve your day to day life and overall health with Aromatherapy.
