Pirie's Soul Food Workshops - Arkholme Village Hall, LA6 1AT
"It was a really lovely day, even the
weather added to the feeling of being connected to the earth!, and a big thank-you also to Oliver. Sharing the preparation for lunch was so much fun and has
encouraged me to make more of an effort to eat well and think more about
time spent in the kitchen." Jan
Detox with Mindful Yoga, Meditation, Chi Gong and Slow Food - Saturday 9th February 2019
"The Qigong and the mindfulness in the afternoon. Overall very relaxing and enjoyable. Really inclusive session. I felt able to follow and keep up even as complete beginner. Cooking together was a great way to take a break and bring the group together.“ Emma
"The space and time to focus on my practice. The Chi Gong – really energising, good to do something different. Meeting other like minded people. The chance to browse the literature.“ Sam Brooks
Dishes previously enjoyed in the workshop:
Stuffed savoy cabbage: one filled with with carrot, chestnut
and sunflower seeds and the other with butternut squash, potatoes and pumpkin
Fresh salad with cold pressed flax seed and olive oil for a high intake of important fatty acids such as omega 3.
Thinly sliced carrots, fennel and red cabbage dressed with lemon juice for a more fruity and nutritious acid than vinegar. Fresh cress and herbs added for vitamins and minerals.
Lentils for protein with fresh herbs for colour, nutrients and taste
A deliciously moist apple cake from trees in our garden :)

“I’m new to yoga and joined to help with problems in my hips and joints due to my job.
I was slightly nervous when first starting as I am not flexible at all.
But Zoe was great, makes you feel at ease and plans her classes around the needs of the students!
Anyone wondering whether to have a go, I would say definitely 'yes'!
Brilliant class, fantastic teacher!” Kate R
Men and women of all ages, abilities and beliefs welcome - come and join in the fun!
“What a pleasure it was today. It's always lovely to see you and I really relate to your professional yet relaxed approach to teaching. I just love the subtlety of the poses/flow that offer a multitude of levels from seemingly simple motions. I do like flow over static and the fact that you offer, indeed encourage, a non-static approach to many of the poses appeals to me. The hall is lovely and clean, good toilet facilities and I found the
acoustics good for that type of building; parking is excellent. Finally, I just want to say how graceful you are.
That is inspirational for me. I started off my yoga just doing poses and was happy to achieve them any
old way but, having watched, I see the beauty and grace in all aspects of a particular 'move'.
Under your tutelage, I feel enormous hope...thank you so so much.” Paul
Make time for your health and happiness :-)
