Release the Psoas Muscle at The Core Zone Banbury

Release the Psoas and Deep Core

The Psoas muscles are the deepest muscles in the body. They are the link between our spine, diaphragm and legs, and therefore, involved in almost every movement we make. In this special 60 minute session you will be guided through a sequence of slow, deep stretches.

These relaxing stretches will work to release tensions held in your body, reduce symptoms of IBS, improve flexibility in the lower back and pelvis, all of which are common issues caused by modern lifestyles.

Participating in this special workshop will promote body awareness and improve Pilates practice.

The evening will conclude with a freshly made, healthy juice.

Please wear comfy clothes and socks

Duration: 7.00pm  – 8.10pm in the form of a group session with a maximum of 12 people in The Stable studio.
Price £20 pp

Developmental Stretch Workshop

The benefits of a good stretch are often under estimated. In fact the combination of deep, steady breathing and accurate stretching techniques can enhance energy levels, release toxins, increase circulation and are fundamental for relaxation. 

During this guided workshop Sheana will demonstrate how breathing through deep stretches to encourage muscles to relax can bring magical, therapeutic results.

With each stretch you will focus on taking time to breath, whilst going deeper into the stretch. Your body will respond to these stretches by increasing circulation, releasing toxins and improving energy levels.

Regularly practising deep stretches will improve the range of movement in major joints and as a consequence, in time, relieve painful pressure.

The workshop will conclude with a short relaxing meditation session and a fresh, cleansing smoothie

Please wear comfy clothes and socks.

Sessions take the form of a 70 minute group session in the Stables studio
Price £20 pp

Lavender Nights

A very popular event, Lavender Nights help teach the art of relaxation and meditation.

This evening has been designed to deeply relax your mind and body. Soothing your mind into guided meditation, bathed in candlelight under warm blankets. Using oils infused with Lavender, Ylang Ylang and Camomile two of our therapists indulge you with slow massage techniques and gentle pressure point releases, that work to reduce tension in your scalp creating an all encompassing “Head Fuss”.

To conclude the evening you will be encouraged to snuggle under your blanket and slowly sip a warming hot chocolate or Horlicks or a soothing herbal tea.

Spring Detox

Come March or April many of us are ready for some spring-cleaning, not just for our homes but for our minds and bodies too.

Stress to Success Workshops

An invaluable event specifically designed for young people, to assist with managing pre-exam stress or general anxiety issues. Our DBS certified trainers will guide them through effective breathing exercises, discuss signs and symptoms of anxiety and provide visualisation tools and recommend coping strategies. And, because we appreciate the important part exercise plays in stress reduction, participants will be shown basic, relaxing Pilates and Yoga moves, followed by a short meditation session. To conclude, if participants are comfortable doing so, they will receive a gentle head massage to stimulate circulation, and then be encouraged to sit, wrapped in a blanket with a soothing hot drink, before heading home for a restful night’s sleep.

Please wear comfy clothes and socks.
