shamanic healing sessions with Denby

Weekdays by appointment.
Cost: $300
Contact: Denby Sheather

denby@breathingspaceyoga.com.au

This year I have been guided to offer my unique blend of yogic/energy/shamanic diagnosis sessions at the studio again.

These sessions will be a subtle compliment to my Full Moon medicine circles each month, helping you to process and integrate shifts that you may experience during those rituals.

Who these sessions are for: Anybody and everybody, especially those who have ‘tried everything else and nothing works’. Working on this deep energetic level, with shamanic tools and intentions, is quite often just what you need to create embodied healing.

Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays by appointment only. Some weekend sessions. 
1.5 hr ~ 3hr sessions for a flat rate of $300.

What each session involves:
*A physical/structural assessment with massage, shiatsu, bowen and myofascial techniques.
*Energy channeling to identify blockages and then ritual/shamanic ceremony to open, clear and stabilise each chakra as appropriate.
*Some body parts may be massaged with herbs and essential oils ie your feet, hands, scalp, temples.
*No clothing will be removed unless you are receiving (and have agreed to) specific massage on other body parts ie spine, neck, legs.
*Smudging, downloading information from your guides, my whale master guides and using several ceremonial tools (rattle, drum), will serve to connect you to source, to your own healing abilities and essentially re establish energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual alignment.

You will leave feeling refreshed, enlightened and empowered.

If you are working with a particular issue (on any level) and would like to experience some more esoteric and tribal healing practices other than traditional medicine, then these sessions are for you.

*If you are receiving medical treatment or on prescription medication, at no time do I suggest my treatments are better or a complete alternative, rather, they can support your current regime and just help to clear and strengthen your energy field as much as possible. The ‘work’ can only go as deep as you allow it, so if you’re ready to open your heart and attune to the universal energies that are morphing so rapidly around us, give me a call!

Some testimonials:

“I have experienced profound and extremely positive shifts as a result of my work with Denby. She always creates this sacred space which allows me to feel safe, held and heard. During my sessions it was as though I was staying at a favourite relative’s home – I felt so safe, relaxed and nurtured. Which is not to say it was a passive experience. Quite the contrary – we both worked hard. Denby’s exquisite rituals and attention to sensory detail allowed me to shed many layers. Past attachments, patterns, ways of thinking that no longer served me. I find Denby so empathic and in tune and I believe her healing work is such a powerful conduit for change.” (Felicity Davey)

“Not only is Denby a knowledgeable and inspiring teacher she is a natural spiritual leader and healer. Her vast expertise of the anatomical body, philosophical and spiritual aspects of yoga has permanently shifted my perspective of the practice. Denby transfers this knowledge to her shamanic healing sessions invoking a power that is intangible. Denby acts as conduit channelling healing energy on a multi layer level.I didn’t know what to expect at first but after I lay down she immediately tuned in to what needed to be healed in such a way that it brought about immediate benefit and relief. I have known and been treated by Denby for the past year now and have been blessed by her healing touch and the genuine warmth of her soul. I find it hard to put into words just what Denby does or how she does it, but after I asked spirit for help they guided me to this special soul to which I will be eternally grateful.” (Nikki)

“My shamanic sessions with Denby have been deeply profound. Denby is incredibly insightful and intuitive. She has guided me through many personal challenges and allowed a safe space for me to grow, giving me guidance and a supportive nurturing environment to build my strength and confidence.” (Marie)

NB: Out of necessity I have now had to implement a deposit at time of booking and cancellation fee system for my private healing sessions. As you can appreciate, setting up for clients takes time and care, and preparation for this deep healing work happens on several levels. Often when someone books in with me, the energetic processing begins right then, in alignment with their intention, even if I’m not seeing them for a week or two later. Specific downloads/information start to come through, and often at all times of the day and night!, so my session with you isn’t only restricted to the hands on time we spend in the treatment room. My calendar fills quickly and this work is just as valid and important as any other modality/specialist therapist, so please consider your appointments as sacred and whilst I understand that things do just happen, please try and give as much notice as possible if you do have to cancel. A non refundable $50 deposit will now be collected at the time of booking. Asking for your understanding and cooperation.

Namaste,

THESE CLASSES ARE SAFE FOR PREGNANT AND POST NATAL MUMS AS WELL AS TEENS OVER 15 YEARS.

These foundational courses are suitable for complete beginners, post natal mums, those working with illness or injury & those who have never practiced yoga before. More experienced yogis will also benefit from refreshing their knowledge and fine tuning their practice. Expect longer holds and juicy breath work to move you deeper and deeper into yourself.

These classes will cover the foundational correctives of Ki yoga and unify them with traditional Hatha postures, with a delicious Yin focus. It will explain the seasonal and meridian connections within each posture and give you an understanding of Japanese yoga philosophy. When you develop a strong Hara/Tanden (belly-mind), energetically, emotionally and physically, you will find lasting improvement and stamina, not only in your yoga practice, but in your daily life. BOWEN THERAPY MOVES & attention to POSTURAL & ENERGETIC ALIGNMENT will make this holistic practice more profound for those working with specific injuries/needs. We will also incorporate meditation and rejuvenating yoga nidra so you feel nourished on all levels of being.

Senior yoga bodyworker Denby Sheather is one of the yoga industry’s most sought after practitioners in the field of womens’ health, prenatal and post natal yoga therapy. 

Each course works to strengthen the blood and reproductive organs, the pelvis, legs and lower back and includes gentle healing massage, shiatsu therapy, chakra balancing, meditations and visualisations plus pranayama (breath work) for pre and established labour and birthing.  When we are connected, open hearted and fear less, we can meet and work with, the challenges of birth.

The unique format has been fine tuned over several years to ensure your complete safety. We begin each session with gentle yoga to release any congestion in the body, followed by appropriate breathing practices that help open and still the mind and lead naturally into guided visualisation. Sacred birth ritual completes the practice to soothe the soul and eliminate lingering fears, tension and fatigue. Each week is progressive, informative and deeply restorative.

“My intention behind creating prenatal workshop series is to connect mothers-to-be with their own innate healing power and birthing abilities.  When we transit from womanhood to motherhood and draw upon our own strength and knowing, the need for extra therapies, expensive treatments or other interventions, is greatly reduced, even unnecessary. Just through the power of our own breath (pranayama), yoga postures (asana), heart connection and meditation, birth becomes the yogic dance nature intended. Birth IS yoga. During these sessions you will learn to listen to and support, yourself, your partner and your baby (energetically, emotionally, physically and mentally); you will also receive Master Reiki attunement for energetic clearing and receptiveness… deepening your spiritual bond with your unborn child. Pregnancy is about embracing and rejoicing in the fullness and beauty of the Feminine plus carrying to full term with as few hiccups as possible. The first trimester often rushes by before we have time to really absorb how our bodies and lives are changing.  The second trimester gives many of us reprieve from nausea and exhaustion and we start to feel vibrant and positive, encouraged by our growing strength and baby bellies. By the third trimester our focus turns inwards and towards the realities of labour.  This is when our natural anxieties arise about reaching that ‘magical 10cms’. We realise we must surrender the mind and move from our heart. For some women birth is about healing trauma from previous experiences, on all levels, that may have left them feeling powerless, for others it’s about epidural, c-section, breech or posterior babies. Many women cannot give birth vaginally for purely anatomical reasons. The mechanics of birthing may be universal, our physiological makeup may be the same, but every woman’s experience, every woman’s story, is unique, and every woman has the right to make conscious, empowered decisions without fear, pressure or regret.  These workshops will help connect you with that truth and strengthen your trust in your abilities so you can calmly apply all you have learnt in preparation, to each and every contraction.” 

“I’ve had three children locally and would have to say that this course is one of the best I have come across for pregnancy and birth support. Not only did I learn so much about my body and how to harness my mind creatively, but I discovered how to own my feminine energy and access my deepest reserves of courage. This was one of the greatest gifts I received from Denby’s teachings and one I will use every day for the rest of my life.”

Melissa

“Denby is a caring and gifted teacher.  With her guidance I healed two previous birth traumas and birthed my third child naturally and without drugs… this course was my saviour!”

Sally

“There are several prenatal classes in the area but I would only recommend Denby’s for she is truly a stand out therapist.  Her natural affinity with yoga and energy put me completely at ease and I trust my baby and I are in the best of hands. This is my first pregnancy and while I obviously flit between anxiety and fear about it all most of the time, I owe a growing sense of calm and trust to Denby. She has such a beautiful way of connecting with our emotions, our bodies and thoughts with complete honesty, that by the time we’ve finished our practice I feel renewed and hopeful and strong again. Bless you Denby for all that you are and all that you give us.”
