HI! I'M VICKY
I'm delighted to share with you all the things that have helped me in my life. In my late teens, I went searching for tools and techniques to help me out of my own personal struggles and discover what I really wanted out of life…..I travelled around Australia, Asia, India and Europe looking for some guidance. I lived in an alternative community and a meditation retreat centre, learning lots on the way. I always dreamed of creating my own wellbeing space and I did just that 3 years ago...For over 25 years now I have explored and tried out many different kinds of techniques in the world of personal development, and I would really like to share with you, the things that have stuck with me, and enabled me to grow...
Ever since I can remember I have loved to move and dance. I experimented with many kinds of dance & fitness techniques and I felt really strongly that I wanted to learn to teach something…..then in 2008 I discovered Nia. It’s a great way to get fit, have fun and feel great all at the same time. I love the music, its guiding principles and its creative potential. I love the way it combines steps and freedance. Since learning it, I have been teaching classes & workshops in oxford & beyond and on meditation retreats and other events.
Over the past 14 years I have also developed my own style of dance & meditation. It is a collection of tools, techniques, exercises, reflections, affirmations & movements that can help you create more health, happiness and harmony in your heart & mind (thoughts/feelings), body and soul; and thus with others in the world around.
The dances can be guided simple steps or freedance (gives you a chance to explore your own natural ways of movement). All the music is carefully chosen and is uplifting, healing and inspiring. Dance Meditation
I now combine Nia & Dance Meditation into what I call Soulshine Dance this is constantly evolving and im presently studying some new styles to bring into my classes.
Being creative and making things has always been another love of mine, you name it i've tried it, my house is full of things i have made! Not too long ago I came across a Powertex workshop and I absolutely loved it....it's so versatile and I like the way you can make old/recycled things new. It's also non-toxic and environmentally friendly which is another plus for me. I did my training a few years ago and since then I have been buzzing away learning and experimenting with it, so i'm really looking forwards to sharing all I have learnt with you! I also love to play with decoupage and mixed media. Im always discovering and learning new techniques. Arts & Crafts
Wellbeing is my life and its what I aspire to be. I am passionate about helping others on their journey to wellbeing. Do you feel you need some extra help & support? I offer one-2-one and group sessions. I would love to be your guide and assist you on your way to finding more health, happiness & harmony in your life. Wellbeing Coaching
Since a child, I have always loved singing, performing and expressing myself through sound and movement. Over the past 12 years I have been singing on retreats at the global retreat centre and in a variety of meditation-based events and festivals. It is my great pleasure to be able to share with you my debut album of original songs created with the talented and wonderful Andy Blissett (co-creator of the amazing music of Bliss www.andyblissett.com) I love sharing music at uplifting events/parties/retreats (my own & others) alongside singing cover-songs that inspire me, also offering an opportunity for you to dance along if you wish. Sometimes I add meditation & other surprises at my events/performances & collaborate with other artists/musicians. Find out more here... Vicky Rainbow Music & Performance
