Long Covid Workshop 1: Orienting

Long Covid Workshop 1: Orienting

Practical Support for Long Covid Sufferers: Embodiment - Nutrition - Aromatherapy This is the first in a series of ten workshops designed to support long Covid sufferers on their pathway back to health. It is not suitable for the acute stage. To find out more about what is planned please watch the video of our introductory event here: In this session there will be three modules. Resting, relaxing the body, orienting in space - with Alexander Technique teacher Sara Khoroosi We can learn to use thought and sensory feedback in a way that facilitates deep and expansive relaxation. We call it "constructive rest". Sara will guide you through this procedure so please prepare a space where you can lie down on a blanket with two or three paperback books to support your head . Ayurvedic Types - Vata: grounding and warming diet Dr Eleni Tsiompanou mentioned in the introductory event that people need to choose their food according to their personal constitution; a "one size fits all" approach to nutrition is not helpful. In this workshop Eleni will tell us about one of the three types, according to Ayurvedic practice - Vata. Helpful for Vata types is a grounding and warming diet. Being in nature, aromatherapy oils and self massage with Natural Movement teacher and Aromatherapist Anne Andenaes. It is often said the Nature is the real healer. This means both that we have our own natural systems that always try to restore balance and that we are part of Nature as a whole. Spending time in and with Nature can be very helpful in reawakening a sense of connection. Certain oils have been used for millennia to stimulate healing processes and Anne will suggest things to try that might be helpful.
Long Covid Workshop 4: Exploring

Long Covid Workshop 4: Exploring

This is the fourth in a series of ten workshops designed to support long Covid sufferers on their journey back to health. It is not suitable for the acute stage. The first three workshops and the pilot event are all available on video. Contact us for details. Natural Breathing part 3: Breath and Sound Sara Khoroosi In parts 1 and 2 of this series we have explored the principles of diaphragmatic, natural breathing and ways to promote it. In this session we will experiment with simple sounds such as humming. When practiced without tension and strain, voiced sounds can generate healthy resonance and vibration in the tissues of our body, helping the life force to flow. Sacred Geometry Julia Outlaw A brief introduction to sacred geometry and how it applies to nature and the human body. Life manifests in many ways and can appear as interconnected chaos - yet there is some order that can be found. Nature holds many recurring patterns, many of which also occur in the human body. We will look at a few of these patterns, including the golden ratio. What connections and beauty can we find in this? How can this help us on our path towards health? Keep in touch with your feet Anne Andenaes Spend a moment for relaxation together with Anne and take the weight off your feet. Anne will guide and help you to find your feet and regain a state of balance. Our feet have been there supporting us throughout our life since the moment they pushed off from the walls of our mother’s womb, propelling us into this world. Anne will spend some moments showing how you can help your feet to help you feel relaxed and invigorated (our feet have over 7,000 nerve endings after all), by natural touch techniques aimed at relaxing and releasing stored tension and fatigue.
Long Covid Workshop 5: Resting

Long Covid Workshop 5: Resting

Natural Breathing 4: Breath and Voice Sara Khoroosi Continuing our series on natural breathing, Sara will explore how we can use breath to support the voice and how the voice's resonance can enliven the respiratory mechanism. Nourishing Stories Malgorzata Jablonska Storytelling has been part of human culture since time immemorial. Stories recount history, teach, feed our psyche and connect us with our heritage. Sit and relax, lie down if you wish, and let Malgorzata take you on a light-hearted journey with this little-known tale from the Brothers Grimm. Self Figure Drawing ​Dr Eva Bojner Horwitz Eva will guide you through an embodied contemplation, where we will focus on a self-chosen theme that is important to us, using open awareness and focused attention to our bodies reflections. The exercise include visualizations, light movements without sounds. The exercise can be made sitting or lying down. We will also present a self-figure drawing concept. Please bring pen and paper!

Long Covid Workshop 6: Creating

Long Covid Workshop 6: Creating

We are delighted to welcome two new presenters to join us this week in our Long Covid Support Project. Dr Joanna Byers, an HCPC registered occupational therapist, and Gabriella Burnel, an internationally known teacher of Sanskrit, singer and composer. The Programme Sanskrit Chanting with Gabriella Burnel Gabriella will share with us a seasonal chant in Sanskrit and teach us a simple mantra which can be used as part of your respiratory and vocal re-education. Gabriella comments: "Today, modern science understands that the whole existence is reverberations of energy, vibrations. Of the amalgamation of the whole of existence, certain mantra are like keys that open up different dimensions of life and experience within us." Seasonal Recipes with Dr Eleni Tsiompanou Our bodies follow the seasonal changes. How to adapt to the summer season, what foods, herbs and spices to choose, how to cook and, how to eat by following the circadian rhythms to stay in balance? How to understand our digestive fire and our body’s capacity to process different foods? Simple and creative recipes to help our digestion, boost our immunity and calm the nervous system by using harmony principles. Cognitive Fatigue Management Techniques with Dr Joanna Byers Joanna will be talking about simple tips and strategies you can employ to maximise energy resources and manage fatigue effectively. She will discuss evidence based practice methods and recommendations from occupational therapy that can be adapted for use in your daily routine. These will be useful for anyone managing challenging symptoms and in particular those finding activities of daily living more difficult than previously due to excessive fatigue.
Long Covid Workshop 7: Healing

Long Covid Workshop 7: Healing

This is the seventh workshop in our Long Covid Support series, Navigating a Path Back to Health. We have another rich programme lined up for you. Healing Dance with Dr Hanna Poikonen Healing is a journey to understand oneself, and to learn to take care of oneself. Through creative movement, we will explore the moment on which we are at our individual healing journey right now. The exercise can be done sitting, standing or laying in bed. Life Affirming Poems with Julia Outlaw When we are unwell, we, as a whole, are affected. How could it be different when our mind, body and emotions are so intimately connected? Healing can come about from multiple directions, and something that can help very much is feeling a sense of peace and belonging. Poetry has the ability to talk to parts of us we don't often contact - it can speak directly to our emotions and allow us to feel that our experience of being human is a shared one! Julia Outlaw will read a few short poems as you rest - to nourish your ears and your soul. When We Don't Know It's Rhythm with Bartosz Nowakowski Rhythm is the most organic part of music. Rhythm is our heartbeat and all the body movements we make from the first beat of our heart. The second so very intimate part of music is singing. The first breath is the first sound. Both coexist giving us life. With every breath with every heartbeat. The word 'rhythm' can be a rhythm in itself when we say it properly, just as the word 'music' becomes singing when we lengthen the vowels. Both these activities give a sense of harmony and are always great territory for discovery and healing. They also give birth to a third value of music and life that gives flavour to the previous two: laughter. Gelos - in Greek means laughter. I invite you to try Gelotology.
Long Covid Workshop 8: Grounding

Long Covid Workshop 8: Grounding

Subtle movement for quietening the nervous system with Philippa Castell Philippa will guide you through a non-strenuous awareness practice from the Feldenkrais Method, using subtle movement, imagination and calming breath. It's designed to help you unwind, restore, and refresh, and to enhance your ability to find deep rest, which is so important in any healing process. You can join in with this session lying in whatever position is comfortable for you, or in sitting if you prefer. Stream of consciousness - writing as an aid to healing with Małgorzata Jabłońska People have a special ability to capture their thoughts. It is writing. By writing down our thoughts, we can return to them to recollect, but also to reflect on them objectively. Writing has been an important form of self-description, self-reflection, and self-therapy. Self-disclosure, which consists of writing about one’s thoughts and feelings, is one of the important factors that make emotional writing therapeutic. Drawing on my own experience of many years of journaling in therapy, as well as recent research on the effects of writing on stress relief and its impact on improving cognitive processes, I will talk about some techniques and ways to use writing in the process of recovery. Connect to Natural Movement with Anne Andenaes Welcome to experiencing some gentle, natural movement to help you feel lighter and recharged as your body heals itself. The aim is to help rekindle the essence of your movement potential which is imprinted within us since we were a developing embryo. During the session, you will have the opportunity to sense any areas of heaviness or tension, lightness or emptiness and simply be encouraged to gently move through these areas using organic, rhythmic, non-linear movement patterns present in Nature and within ourselves. Enjoy the experience of yourself releasing, lengthening, expanding, contracting, restoring and rebalancing naturally, without any strain or pressure. Natural Movement helps restore the flow and rhythm of energy and power to our cells and systems by improving blood and lymphatic circulation for example, as well as encouraging gentle exercise for the respiratory system. (It is advisable to wear light comfortable clothing. No shoes are necessary.)
Long Covid Workshop 9: Connecting

Long Covid Workshop 9: Connecting

The Gut-Brain Connection with Dr Hanna Poikonen Recent studies show how the gut health influences the brain health. Indeed, our body sends messages to our brains through nervous and hormonal systems. Balancing the gut and the body functions can lead to balanced brain functions, too. We will talk about the brain-gut connection and make a short relaxation exercise to notice how calming down the body also calms the mind. Refreshing Summer Drinks with Dr Eleni Tsiompanou During summer and autumn, there is abundance in Nature - of herbs, flowers and fruit. Knowing how to use these fresh, and knowing how to prepare and store them to have later in winter and spring, can give us good material to help our bodies cope with the different challenges brought by seasonal effects on our systems. Learn about refreshing drinks that can bring harmony to our bodies and minds and to our external environment, connecting us with the natural worlds within and without; the inner and outer microbiome. The Vagus Nerve with Julia Outlaw and Dr Eleni Tsiompanou The vagus nerve is part of our autonomic nervous system and controls many different critical functions in our bodies, including digestion and respiration. Understanding more about these connections can help us manage an array of symptoms and soften the fight/flight/freeze reaction - or the ‘tired and wired’ state that many long Covid sufferers experience. Dr. Eleni Tsiompanou and Julia Outlaw discuss these inner connections and simple things that can help.

À propos du programme

L'équipe d'Harmonie en Santé souhaite aider en cette période de crise. Nous sommes inspirés par les idées d'Harmony et pensons qu'elles peuvent aider les gens à retrouver la santé.

Alors que pouvons-nous offrir?

Premièrement, ce que nous ne pouvons pas offrir, ce sont des conseils spécifiques - car c'est le rôle de votre médecin généraliste ou de votre consultant.

Il y a tellement d'inconnues sur cette nouvelle maladie, mais on en sait beaucoup sur :

  • comment l'équilibre de l'esprit, du corps et des émotions affecte notre état de santé

  • des moyens de rétablir l'équilibre dans l'organisme, en s'appuyant sur les connaissances des traditions médicales qui ont dû faire face à de nombreuses maladies - y compris les pestes et la peste - sans antibiotiques, stéroïdes ou chirurgie

  • disciplines esprit/corps de l'Est et de l'Ouest qui ont toujours cherché à s'intégrer plutôt que de se séparer

Nous ne savons pas s'ils fonctionneront mais ils ne feront pas de mal et nous pouvons apprendre ensemble ce qui est utile. Les premiers retours sont cependant très positifs.

Voici quelques commentaires suite à nos modules sur la Respiration Naturelle .

"J'ai eu beaucoup de problèmes respiratoires...

J'ai vraiment aimé les séances de respiration - vraiment intéressantes. Surtout en se rappelant de se concentrer sur l'expiration...

Je n'avais pas réalisé l'effet que cela pouvait avoir."

"Je me suis concentré sur le fait de permettre l'expiration naturelle après la séance de respiration ; ma respiration, ma voix, tout s'est considérablement améliorée au cours de la semaine dernière - juste à partir de ce petit extrait."

"Je fais beaucoup de yoga ashtanga, où vous faites beaucoup de grandes respirations... alors je sens que je dois réapprendre à respirer... et en tant que professeur de yoga, tout recommencer... mais il était logique de travailler en essayant pour aider une respiration naturelle - c'est vraiment utile."

"Cela a également aidé mon système digestif … il deviendrait rouge à vif - si je calmais ma respiration et la regardais, mon système digestif se calmait aussi, ce qui est incroyable."

Nous savons que de nombreuses personnes sont aux prises avec la perte de leur odorat et nos retours nous indiquent que certaines ont été aidées par les suggestions de notre aromathérapeute.

"La conférence sur l'aromathérapie m'a été très utile - j'ai encore un sacré défi avec l'odorat et le goût - il est à peine revenu."

"J'ai compris que je pouvais toujours profiter de la sensation de l'odorat même si elle est limitée. Je passe mes doigts dans des pots d'herbes et je repense à des souvenirs positifs - c'est la guérison."

"Je peux susciter une réponse positive - c'est très intéressant. Cela me fait un très bel effet."

Un autre élément populaire est notre série sur la nutrition.

"L'apport ayurvédique sur la nutrition est un autre élément très utile...

Je cuisine avec plus d'épices maintenant... et plus d'aliments réchauffants"

"Je suis un Vata naturel (type) - longtemps, Covid a été un choc pour ceux qui avaient l'habitude de courir ! Une chose que j'ai réalisée, c'est que j'ai appris à écouter mon corps - j'ai commencé à faire intuitivement ces choses qui ont été considéré comme bénéfique..."

"En ce qui concerne la nutrition - davantage d'apports provenant du monde clinique traditionnel, ce qui confirme ce que nous apprenons au cours - ce qui est vraiment excitant - cela ouvre la possibilité aux gens d'en tirer vraiment profit."

Nous organisons dix ateliers d'une heure tous les quinze jours de fin mars à mi-août 2021, avec des modules réguliers sur l'esprit et le corps, la nutrition et des spécialistes invités pour partager leurs connaissances sur une variété de sujets différents mais connexes.

Nous couvrons un large éventail de sujets et d'approches conçus pour nourrir et soutenir, y compris des modules sur :
