Noona Ayres: Yoga & Reiki

MYBA RevitalizeNoona  first came to the South of France in 2001 after several years working on yachts as crew. After moving to France she began practicing a variety of styles of  yoga (Sivananda, Ashtanga, Hatha and Integral). After 12 years working in the yacht charter industry she made a dash for the bright side and now teaches yoga and Reiki full time, in studio classes, Pop Up classes outdoors, as well as private classes in villas and on board yachts.  Noona  teaches Integral Yoga, a form of Hatha Yoga which is accessible to all ages, levels of fitness and ability. Leading you mindfully through the series of Asanas (postures), each class also includes pranayama (breath work), deep relaxation and meditation, to leave you feeling stretched, refreshed and revitalized. There will be lunchtime and evening classes each day during the show: 12.45 – 13.30 and  17.45-18.30. Noona is a Yoga Alliance Registered Teacher. Trained as a Reiki Master Teacher, Noona offers mini Reiki treatments throughout the show. Reiki is a form of energy healing which reduces stress and fatigue and leaves you with a great sense of well-being and feeling more able to deal with the pressures of life.


Susanne Batstone: Bach Remedies & Energy Healing

MYBA RevitalizeThe Bach Flower Remedies are a simple, natural resource that helps you deal with the emotional demands of everyday life, to achieve a greater balance and harmony and allowing you to take more control of your own self-care. The remedies are used to help bring extremes of emotions back into balance, and help us to learn about ourselves and affect changes to promote our own health and well-being. They help to transform negative attitudes and emotional issues into positive ones which then frees the physical body to promote healing and deal with stress. They can also be used preventatively, at times of anxiety and stress, when negativity may creep in. My aim is as an educator to help others learn this simple, self-help system, by assisting in the selection and use of the remedies; and as a facilitator to guide people towards participating in their own healing and achieving emotional wellbeing. To carry out this process, you are invited to undertake a confidential consultation which helps you identify current emotional imbalances and to discuss the remedies. We then choose together the remedies that are suitable for your personal situation. They are beneficial for people of all ages and also for animals and plants. I am a firm believer in body and soul working together and the flower remedies can be very useful in conjunction with other therapies. Susanne is a qualified Bach Practitioner and will also be offering mini Energy Healing sessions.
