Yoga & Wellness Festival at Everybody Holmes Chapel

On Saturday 29th June, local yoga sensation, Lucy Alves, and Holmes Chapel resident, Nicola Wellington, hosted a Mind Over Matter Yoga and Wellness Day at Everybody's Holmes Chapel Community Centre, as part of a drive to increase awareness of the mental health issues associated with eating disorders.

The event raised £1,300 for the Cheshire West Eating Support Team (cwest).

The event was initiated by Lucy Alves, who continues to raise money for local charities through positive mental wellbeing, yoga and Bowen therapy.

The event attracted approximately 80 attendees who were offered four hours of yoga led by local teachers, alongside luxury spa experiences such as Tropics Facials by the wonderful Sam Taylor There was also Reflexology and relaxation remedies including Bowen and Reiki.

The excitement did not stop there, Zentangling and Mandala drawing instilled therapeutic and creative energy in the cafe area in addition to cocktail and mocktail infusions and traybake niceties - the Orange Tang certainly hit the spot for hydration replenishment following an afternoon of yoga!

The day concluded with a raffle draw, with cwest founder, Helen Davies, announcing the winners and speaking about the brilliant service available for those suffering with or caring/supporting people with eating disorders. Donations were made on the day and via the JustGiving crowdfunding page.

'Thank you to Everybody and to everyone who donated their time, money and prizes and gave their support to the Mind Over Matter Yoga and Wellness Day. We have been overwhelmed by your generosity and kindness.' A very special Thank you to the kindness and hard work of Nicola and Lucy
