The initial course lasts for six months, which consists of one weekend per month with homework in between. At the end of this course, you will be able to start your own healing journey and will feel confident to give healing to others and begin to make a difference. The course also focuses on self healing with daily meditations and teachings to enable the student to have a deeper and more healthy connection to self.

With your new skills you will be making a difference in the world and starting to realise your potential as healers with a more positive impact upon yourself and others.

In May 2017 Libby gained 250 hours Teacher Training with the abode yoga school in Bali and has since been teaching yin yoga, energy work and meditation.

Libby studied at the Abode yoga school as it had a huge enfaphasis on the spiritual and philosophical side of yoga, which is embodied within the eight limbs of yoga.

These eight limbs, or steps, act as a guideline on how to live a meaningful and purposeful life. Libby is passionate about self healing which can offer a deeper connection to self and the source. Libby teaches Yin Yoga, Breathwork, Chakras, energy work and different types of meditations.

Libby’s passion in life is to make a difference in the lives of others and the yoga sutras are a gateway to just this.

“I am grateful to be able to bring my yoga into my everyday life. Weather it’s through self-practice, teachings, sharing my experiences or simply being present with myself and others”.


At the sanctuary we offer bespoke meditation groups. We also offer one to one sessions and courses. Meditation can be practices by anyone and can be as simple as concentrating on breath.

There are many different types of meditation such as mindfulness, spiritual meditation, focused meditation, movement meditation, mantras, transcendental meditation and loving kindness meditation. We offer all types of meditation to suit your needs.

Some of the many benefits meditation can bring are reduced anxiety, peace of mind, improved sleep patterns, a happier outlook on life, a deeper connection to self and so much more.

Come and join us for one of our meditations and experience the power of stillness and bring peace and happiness into your life.

Sound Healing & Gong Baths

Gong Baths Healing


This is an invaluable form of healing for any therapist to have at their disposal. We can help with helping stopping smoking, eating disorders, phobias etc. However sometimes the things that are creating bad habits or havoc in our lives are not easily seen. These traumas can be buried deep in our subconscious mind and hidden from the conscious mind. Most likely from a childhood experience, once discovered the patient has the opportunity to come to terms with the trauma, then great and relatively swift healing can take place. Sometimes this can be life changing.

Yoga singing (Kirtan) is often referred to as yoga singing and pre dates back to the 12th century when it was developed by the Bhakti yogi’s.

Yoga surging awakens the Heart and is seen as a devotion to love.

Often sung as mantras and in repartition, participants singing ability is inherent to anyone who has the ability to make sound.

A voice that sings allows expression to flow and emotion to be released.

Distant or Remote Healing

A great healer called Harry Edwards once said that Distant healing will become the healing of the future. In his heyday he was receiving over 8,000 letters per week from people all over the world that required his help to overcome their suffering.

Martin and Libby also offer distant healing, so if you write them at the sanctuary with your request for healing, they will then send you healing every day for 30 days and after this time period will take you off of the list.

This service is on a donation basis, so when you feel the benefits of the healing, please feel free to send in a donation. The amount is entirely up to you.


Spiritual, or energy healing has been used by our ancestors for thousands of years with great results. The human body is remarkable and under the right conditions can heal itself.  The act of healing is the art of bridging the gap between the spirit world and our physical world. Once this is achieved it can bring about great relief for those who are suffering. Martin and Libby practice many different types of healing at their sanctuary including shamanic healing, Reiki and sound healing.

Martin and Libby also offer  animal healing and offer this service after an initial consultation.
