Albion Nights - Sunday Morning Movement and Brunch With Gemma 'The Quiet Heart' and Polly of Jolly Allotment.
This is a super special morning of connection to self and community to set you steady for the Autumn. Gemma is a Chinese Medicine practitioner, mental health trainer and facilitator, yoga and meditation teacher. So this morning will be super incredible. She will be using Qi Gong, Yoga and breath practice to guide you through movement to reconnect with the wisdom of your unique body, to feel into what and where you need to move, and to listen to what you need. We will end with a guided meditation which will connect you to the rhythm of the Autumn season.
As you ground we will serve warm nourishing herbal teas followed by a seasonal nourishing brunch around the fire and comforting conversation.
10am - 1pm at Albion Nights - Norfolk.
This is a gathering to allow you to find home in your body and reconnect with its wisdom and kindness so you can transition into Autumn knowing how to nourish your body and mind over the winter. We promise you will float home with your cup fully fuelled feeling abundant, loved, calm connected and whole again.
Come and gather around the campfire and refuel your cup to overflow at this special venue amongst the trees for a morning of movement and breath followed by fire side brunch and the warmth of community.
We have created this beautiful safe and nourishing morning in nature to help you reconnect to you.
This is a peaceful morning that will feed your soul and uplift your heart. You will leave feeling nourished, calm, connected and whole.
We have an incredible breadth of wellness knowledge and healing experience between us. I am so so excited to have Gemma with us she really knows how to create a beautiful healing session. So knowledgeable and kind. We are super excited to be able to create this experience for you. The last event we created together we had the most wonderful feedback so it is exciting to be bringing this energy to Norfolk.

THE QUIET HEART
I’m Gemma and I’m a Chinese Medicine practitioner, mental health trainer and facilitator, yoga and meditation teacher and speaker. I work online and in private practice, in schools, universities and for companies, and am based in the beautiful city of Bristol, UK. I offer unique wellbeing sessions for individuals and groups, where I combine all the elements of my experience to help you feel a sense of peace and connection with the inherent nature of your body.
I specialise in how we connect with the natural rhythms of the world around us, the space we inhabit, and how slowing down and hearing what your body is trying to say, brings a sense of feeling grounded and safe. I have a passionate interest in rituals, and how we can interconnect ancient, often forgotten practices with the every day rhythms of our modern lives.
In my teaching sessions I using conscious movement, meditation and nature connection to guide young people and adults through the whole process of what happens in the body when under stress. I enjoy helping people experience the powerful and calming effect that embodied movement and breath and awareness has on our nervous system. In my private practice I use acupuncture, moxa, massage and cupping combined with the above skills to help many conditions. I specialise in mental health conditions and womens wellbeing, in particular the different phases of life and fertility.
I have a degree in Chinese Medicine, a diploma in Yoga, mindfulness and meditation teaching for children and adults.
How the day will flow...
