Kerrie Plowman

Owner of Tranquility, Holistic Therapist and Meditation teacher
ITEC qualified

Tranquility Holistic Therapy Centre and Studio on Chilwell High Road is ran by Kerrie Plowman, who gained her ITEC qualification in Holistic Therapies in 2004. She has over 15 years’ experience in treating clients, offering luxurious pampering treatments with a personal touch to nurture and revive you.

Kerrie trained in 2004 and began by offering massage for Corporate events and then began to build her client base by working one day a week renting therapy rooms in Nottingham city centre and Beeston.  Her client base grew rapidly and Kerrie was able to move into her own therapy room in 2011 on Bramcote Avenue, Chilwell.  After a very successful year, she moved to larger premises and created the “Tranquility Holistic Therapy Centre and Studio” in the Creative Corner.  This was her dream to have therapies apart from her holistic therapies but other therapists and teachers all under one roof for a complete wellbeing service. She remained and grew the business there for 6 years.  Finally needing more space to expand she moved to her new home which she says is perfect!  Its an old building with lots of charming character and a great energy.

The centre has  5 therapy rooms (three for talking therapies and two for treatments) all with natural light and a lovely studio, all which are available to rent out to therapists and for yoga, meditation classes etc.  We also have a lovely waiting area

Here you can experience yoga, mindfulness, relaxation classes, therapies, holistic beauty treatments and much more, all taught by dedicated, professional and inspirational teachers, creating a holistic approach to the wellbeing of the mind, body and spirit

Kerrie herself offers quality holistic treatments including: Organic chemical free organic facials, massage, lava shell and hot stone massage, Indian head massage, chocolate massage and hopi ear candles.  Tranquility also has other other counsellors and therapists. Please check out our therapists page for more details

We have free parking available at the centre, and on the High Road too

Kerrie says:

“After experiencing many treatments myself, I recognise how much you are rushed in and out and not always made to feel special, which is disappointing and not how you want to feel after having a treatment.  I always treat my clients how I would want to be treated, as an individual and made to feel special, which is the way it should be.”

Come and relax under our comfortable quilt and heated couch be pampered and let your problems drift away….. Talk about your problems to our counsellors who are eager to listen to you… Revitalize and regenerate with our great classes in our calming studio….

Make that commitment to look after yourself, after all if you don’t look after yourself, how can you look after everyone else! You only have one body, nourish and treat it with the love and care it needs by nourishing your body, mind and soul at Tranquility.

Things can throw us off course and we can lose ourselves and need support through difficult times. It may just be that you need someone to talk to about what’s going on for you. I can help you by offering a warm and safe space where you will be fully listened to and can explore your emotional difficulties without judgement and at a pace that suits you.

Having said this, there are many other mental health problems intertwined/linked into this including depression, anxiety, OCD , anger and eating disorders to name but a few.
I have experience of working with a wide range of mental health problems and clients of all ages. As an integrative counsellor, I work mainly as a person centred counsellor in the sense that you direct the session however I also bring in other approaches to suit your needs.

Laura Mercer – Alignment based Vinyasa Yoga classes

To book please contact Laura on 07754 955106

 I truly believe yoga is an amazing way to enrich and energise your life.

Perhaps you want to counteract hours spent at a desk or in a car, build your strength alongside playing sport, or clear your head to help you to prioritise what’s important to you;

there are many reasons for taking up yoga practice.

You don’t have to adopt a perfect lotus pose while taking a selfie to enjoy yoga. It’s all about taking what is accessible to you, whether you’re a beginner or more experienced.

I am trained in alignment based vinyasa yoga, which means that during my classes you can expect a flow style sequence.  I combine this with taking the time to break postures down so that you have the chance to really experience what feels good for your body and to practice safely.

For me, it’s not just the practice of yoga itself that I am passionate about, but the effect it can have on the rest of my day-to-day life.  I’ve found that since practicing yoga regularly I am generally more aware of my body; what food makes me feel good, whether I’m getting enough sleep and how alert I feel when I wake up in the morning.

I continue to learn and evolve my practice by attending regular classes, workshops and training courses.

 

About my class

Start your day by joining me on the mat!

We will move through a flow style sequence. I will combine this with taking the time to break postures down so that you have the time to really experience what feels good for your body and practice safely. Perfect for beginners, or more experienced yogis looking to get back to basics

Lauren Witham – Vinyasa Yoga

I look forward to finding out more about you and each others yoga journey!  I am a local Nottingham girl with a thirst for travel.  I recently returned home from a 6 year adventure in Australia.  My love affair with yoga began on earlier travels around the world including several stays in India.  It was in Melbourne that’s I fell in love with Somachi Yoga which combined Vinyasa yoga and tai chi and contemporary Dance. After years of attending the Somachi studio.  I knew the time had come for my teacher training.  I completed my 200 hours in September 2016

Since then I have been blessed to have taught and learnt from a wide array of teachers and students within the community including adults with learning disabilities, elderly residents in a care home and youths and adults in a drug and rehabilitation centre.  Alongside this I ran regular classes in a yoga and dance studio.

As I have experience working with different levels of abilities – my yoga classes are structured around the students, their goals and abilities. This ensures everyone can move towards their potential in a safe nurtured environment

Yoga is a lifestyle choice – one which I am constantly learning and growing.  I have enjoyed staying in ashrams and monasteries across the world.  Here I studied great teachings and gained first hand the experience of what a calm mind can unveil for us.

Now I am back in Nottingham, loving my life.  I have a fresh new perspective and energy from my experiences and travels.  I hope to be able to share this with you as we continue to learn and grow together.

Vinasa Flow is an uplifting practice uniting movement with the breath.  This class requires some basic experience of yoga, although clear guidance will be given in a supportive and welcoming environment.  This class will differ from standard gym or studio sessions with an extended 15 minutes relaxation at the end to complement the practice.  This may incorporate sound therapy or essential oils

Tuesdays

Susan Hardwick – Dru Yoga Teacher

What is Dru Yoga?

*Joints are kept relaxed and soft during movement (similar to tai chi). This creates flexibility and a free flow of subtle energy.
*Unique Energy Block Release (EBR) sequences; flowing movements that help to release tension physically, mentally and emotionally.
* In Dru Yoga movement originates from the spine, because a flexible, healthy spine supports your entire yoga practice.

Jo Perrett – Beginners Pilates

Jo has been trained in Pilates Therapy and is currently undergoing further training in biomechanics.

Pilates Therapy is a relatively new way of approaching and understanding the body.  It uses Pilates in combination with anatomical assessment to help individuals enhance and restore optimal movement.

Jo was recently involved in a road traffic collision and suffered with whiplash.  This has made her even more aware of how easily the body can become restricted or tense due to particular incidents but also by everyday activity.

She believes that Pilates is an effective way of restoring and maintaining functionality.

Beginners Pilates 9.30 – 10.30

This is aimed at people with little to no experience of Pilates. It will focus on the original 34 classical floor exercises and introduce the 6 principles of Pilates.

This is suitable for people of all abilities and fitness levels.

All exercises can be modified to individual needs.

£7 per class

Darren Clarke Sound Baths

 

 

 

 

 

Booking is required. Please Direct Message to book, spaces are limited!

A Sound / Gong Bath is a vibrational healing sensation that helps still the mind and soothe the soul. It can be an unforgettable experience for those who seek deep relaxation, rejuvenation and an acceleration of their inward journey. Time is suspended as you enter a world of vibration, sensation and experiences. Physical injuries may be healed, and old emotional traumas may be released. People may often find resolutions to emotional issues during this time.

This journey gives you the opportunity to explore yourself in a deeper level of consciousness. The healing vibrational sounds helps the physical and emotional states within the body to re-align and repair. This allows your body to find a natural calmness whilst allowing for space for insights and thoughts. You can feel truly, vibrantly alive. Once you’ve had your first Sound Bath you’ll want more.

Sound Therapy is effective in not only achieving a state of relaxation, but it also has a way of moving through energy blockages in the body. The journey has been known to help ease many conditions such as stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, depression, sleep disorders, MS, pain and autism. The sound healing vibrations help to release stress, allowing the whole body to enter into a deep relaxation of harmony and joyfulness.

Everything on Earth is made up from sound vibrations and each person is believed to have their own vibrational footprint. During a sound bath the aim is to help relax your body and mind so that you can experience the sound waves washing over you.

Most of the instruments are played from one place, however, occasionally they may be brought around the room and played over your body.

Please wear loose comfortable clothing. Most people lie down during a Sound Bath, whereas some choose to sit in a comfortable chair.

No prior experience, effort or practice is required to participate. All welcome, However, please note sound therapy is not recommended for people with pacemakers or pregnant ladies in their 1st trimester. If you have any illnesses or aliments and are unsure if this experience will be suitable for you, please do not hesitate to contact Darren.
