Access Bars - 1 day training workshop
(Thursday 1st June 2017)

Access Consciousness The Bars® are 32 bars of energy that run through and around your head that connect you to different aspects of your life. We call all of the points you touch when using this modality “The Bars®.”

These points contain all the electromagnetic component of thoughts, ideas, beliefs, emotions, and considerations that you have stored in any lifetime, especially the unconscious 'stuff' that create limitation, feeling stuck, stress, strain and struggle. This is an opportunity to start letting it all go!

Having your bars run is an incredibly nurturing and relaxing process, undoing limitation in your life.

Once trained, you are an Access Consciousness Bars Practitioner and can offer Bars sessions to friends, family or clients immediately and swap with fellow practitioners.

Class Cost is $320, and $160 for repeats within one year.
16-18year olds can also attend for half price and U15 years can always attend for free

(Friday 9th June 2017)

Fergus Aitken returns to Nelson and Takaka with an adults-only standup comedy show that will leave you in stitches.

Recently he has been refreshing a selection of adventures, fun facts and myths. Some of life's little mysteries will be expanded and exploded!

With a stand-up comedy style based strongly in physical theatre and storytelling, he spins a yarn – and some of it’s even true.

“Some of the funniest things I’ve ever heard are true . . . like the actor who took herbal viagra which didn’t work until the next day just as he went for his important TV audition . . . or the deer hunters whose bicycles were stolen by recently released, trained circus bears . . .”

In a varied comedy career spanning three decades and 15 countries, he has experienced many bizarre encounters with the truth… including several standing ovations at a nudist festival.

Come out from the cold and tickle your funny bone with an evening of hilarity featuring Fergus Aitken.

(Tuesday 13th-Sunday 18th June 2017)

Kriya Yoga is a practical experience using the chakras, pranic pathways, breathing practices, sound vibrations, psychic gestures and energy locks to unfold the subtle layers of one’s own being.

The word kriya means 'activity' or 'movement' and refers to the activity or movement of consciousness. It involves a powerful combination of yoga, pranayama (breathing practices), mudra (psychic gestures), bandha (energy locks) and meditation and has the capacity to quickly evolve the practitioner.

This course will explore the chakras and energy pathways using the meditation exercises of Kriya Yoga and will be integrated with daily hatha yoga, relaxation and chanting classes in a stunning natural location. You will be initiated into the Kriyas in a safe way, with practical applications for your daily life.

Kriya Yoga is a doorway to self-reflection, helping the practitioner to understand the unconscious layers of the mind and its monkey nature, propounding a pathway to peace and well-being.

Business House Squash
(Monday 1st May-Monday 26th June 2017)

Its's business time... BUSINESS HOUSE!
Business House is very social, and based around fun and getting people involved and into squash as an all-round fitness sport.

Each team has four members ( ideally with at least one female player per team ) and games last for 20 minutes each player, with continuous scoring.
If one player gets 10 points ahead, the opposing player gets 11 points, which keeps it close and fun, and can lead to some very interesting results in the last 60 seconds of a 20 minute game.
All games are played with Blue Dot ( bouncy ) squash balls – so the ball stays alive and bounces higher, making it easier for less experience players.
There are no strokes – just lets – safety is paramount.

At the end of the evening we pick up pizza from Stefano’s for supper, and the warm bar is open for socialising all evening.
Kids are welcome to attend also and watch, and we start at 6.30pm – pizza is at 8pm.

Cost per team is $160 and we have the ability to have 12 teams playing as we have 6 superb courts.
