FREE Crystal Healing Therapy Treatments


Hello Yogis.

I am really excited to announce that I will be finalising my Crystal Healing Practitioner Training over the next 10 months.

I have already completed an online Level 3 diploma in Crystal Healing but I am still considered a student so will be furthering my training as mentioned above.

In light of this, I am looking for some wonderful people to experience a crystal healing for FREE over the next few months. 

I will be looking to begin treatments in the New Year and have only 4 places available. If you would like to be considered for a FREE Crystal Healing series of treatments (you will be required to have 3, complete treatments), then do get in touch and I will put your name down. 

I will ideally be delivering the treatments from my home, but that may not always be possible due to other commitments, so I may bring the treatment to you. In general, treatments will be carried out during the daytime in the week, but I may be able to reserve some treatment time to occasional Saturdays.

The places will be issued on a first come, first served basis and subject to your individual requirements.

Too excited to be sharing this!

With love and light, Carrie-Anne.

Just a thought to ponder!


Just a thought to ponder!

What does good health mean to you?

As you open your eyes each morning, do you wake up feeling healthy?

For some people, they relate to being healthy when they look in the mirror and are happy with what they see. They may be well groomed and have a fresh appearance. To others, it is less about the external perspective and reflects more about how they feel?

If you happen to have a long term health concern, maybe waking up one morning, without as much pain, or with a little more energy than normal, is reflected on as feeling healthier.

Each of us has our own understanding of what being healthy actually means.

Energy levels come and go, as stress increases or decreases and as daily life moves through it’s inevitable cycles.

  • I feel my healthiest when I have had a good nights sleep, when I have eaten nutritious food that feeds my body, rather than just fills me up. I like to make sure I get plenty of exercise, so a daily yoga practice and a walk is vital to my sense of well being.
  • Making time to relax fully is also an indication of leading a healthy lifestyle. If we don’t schedule in time to relax, then the body will soon become exhausted. 
  • Family time and spending time with friends, where we can have a laugh and find true connection is also invaluable to your healthy lifestyle.
  • Having something positive to aim for is for me also imperative. We are creatures of creation and we love to feel that we have purpose and meaning to each day.

Not one of us will reflect the same way, when recalling an individual feeling of health, so why not allow yourself to spend a few minutes, as you move towards the Christmas Season, contemplating what good health means to you?

Allow yourself some time to expand on these ideas so you can begin to factor them into your life, preparing yourself for the New Year ahead.

Why not come along to the Winters Deep Chill Evening on Sunday 1st December and find some peace and wellbeing as we move towards the chaos of Christmas!

I am a Happy Yogi, FREE Class Draw!


Christmas is just around the corner and that means busy days and long nights!.

In light of this, it is important to keep up your regular yoga routine. Often when life gets busy, we drop the things in life that we do for ourselves, in favour of trying to find the time to cram everything in to those days when there just aren’t enough hours.

When the world just won't switch off!


Hello Yogis.

Here I am at 5.00am, typing away, attempting to share with you a number of ways I have managed to use my Yogic tool box to get the world to switch off! 

This morning, I decided to put my tool box to one side and instead, share these insights with you!

Sleepless nights!

I am now 47 years old and like a lot of people in my age group, stage of life responsibilities and changes that naturally take place physically at this time, sometimes come along and haunt me. Usually they decide to arrive in the early hours of the morning!

I have often found myself waking up at 4.30am, and have found it hard to get back to sleep. 

Sleepless nights, for whatever reason, are a very common problem for a lot of the population.

I wrote a blog post about dealing with insomnia and how you can begin to conquer it, and I would like to remind you of the invaluable tips and hints that the blog post offered.

The post was compiled from my own list of experiences and I know it was useful to a lot of people when I originally posted it.

It may be of use to you now, so I have linked it below.

Before I do, I just wanted to ask you if you would be interested in my running a monthly hour long class, designed to support those suffering from anxiety, stress and insomnia? The class would be tailored using restorative yoga poses, meditation and breath work but also I am hoping to offer space where you can speak of your difficulties openly, thereby encouraging a welcoming and friendly connection to others who are experiencing the same thing.

I am not a trained counsellor or psychotherapist so please do seek expert advice should you feel you need more in-depth support. I merely want to share with you practical and relaxing ways you can begin to re-balance your system and allow your energy and regular sleeping patterns back into your life!

The group will run once a month on a Wednesday evening, after my regular yoga class in Kingsthorpe, from 8.00pm-9.00pm and would cost £10.

If this would be of interest to you, please do contact me to let me know and I will get the ball rolling!

You may also be interested in 1 of the 3 remaining places left on a wonderful workshop that is taking place this Sunday 3rd November, that has been designed to help you to Combat Insomnia. 

If you would like to join us, do get in touch as soon as possible.

The Insomnia Blog post, as promised.

I so look forward to hearing from you!

*Don't miss out on the Free Prize Draw this month! 

With warmest of wishes.
