Dr Champika creates a calm and supportive learning environment ensuring that each studentís confidence is developed. I felt touched by her individualised support both in class and out. Her weekly emails following the class encouraged and reminded us about further reading. Particularly enjoyed the teaching styles and group exercises. Dr Champika is not only a a fantastic practitioner, she is also an excellent teacher. I always look forward to the classes as her classes are very friendly, relaxed and everyone get on well as a family.

Manasa -Perfect health through mind-body harmonisation - One day work shop -cost £110 / Date July 2019

Mind body interaction is still debated today. How can the mind cause our limbs to move (for example, raising our hand to stop a bus). How can the sense organs cause sensations in the mind? The stress response creates physiological changes that damage the body and accelerate aging. An agitated mind/body system generates entropy, decay and aging. Your own body/mind system is also an expression of the same quantum field that underlies everything in the universe. The course offers practical approaches to balance and revitalize your body and the mind.
