Kathy Stephenson and Helen Morrison formed The Quiet Zone in 2021 to share their passion for live harp music played in therapeutic contexts, including health and wellbeing settings.
The Quiet Zone is a safe space for relaxation restoration and coming back to centre. Be captivated by the beauty of live harp music while being guided through a range of meditative activities, including mindfulness, meditation, stillness, poetry, movement, soundscapes and art.
Helen (music educator) and Kathy (counsellor) are experienced workshop presenters and bring a wealth of wisdom and knowledge to create an emotionally safe and held space. Participants are invited, through the healing power of the harp, to reconnect with the self and restore a sense of balance within a nurturing and soothing atmosphere.
Kathy is a well-known counsellor operating her private counselling practice ‘Tulip Tree Therapy’ in the Huon Valley and consults with clients in various locations in Hobart.
Helen runs a successful music studio in South Hobart teaching harp piano and cello. She enjoys walks in nature and in her spare time presents a radio show ‘Mostly Folk on Hobart FM.
Kathy and Helen look forward to welcoming you to The Quiet Zone at the Hobart Breathing Space on Friday October 15 2021 from 5:30 to 7:00 PM

The class follows a simple structure and is guided through various movements incorporating some of the elements we find in Yoga and meditation, holding the Dance Movement Psychotherapy approach at its heart.
There is no need for previous experience and you are invited to join within your body limits (through listening to your body).
Come along and try. All welcome. Love and Light, Julie

Love and Light,
Sacred Seeds Yoga School's next holistic yoga teacher training program will begin in Spring 2021.
We will prepare you to deeply reflect and investigate your own practice and inner life while also giving you the tools to share those insights and the knowledge of yoga with others.
Our training includes techniques in Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin Yoga, Restorative and Prenatal! You will learn the difference in these styles and, depending on your own goals and desires you will learn the art of teaching them. Our training is designed to be unique to each student providing intimate one-on-one work alongside group dialogue and learning.
We've graduated over 45 teachers now and most of those students are teaching yoga in their own businesses or in local yoga communities around Hobart. We're dedicated to your journey and you flourishing as a yoga practitioner and teacher.

Welcome to Hobart Breathing Space!
I hope you will see it as your space and your community, dedicated to supporting you along YOUR path to healing and wholeness.
Interestingly, our word HEALTH comes from the Anglo Saxon word HALE meaning WHOLE (as in “hale and hearty “). To be healthy is to be whole, so come along and explore our winter offerings in the Space. I feel sure they’ll support your well-being and nourish your soul in the cold, dark days ahead.
As well as our regular Yoga classes with Lauren, Leela and myself, we also have Breathwork sessions available with Ninna and a range of counselling and psychotherapy sessions.
From the beginning of June, Hobart Breathing Space also welcomes Eri Mullooley-Hill Konishi with her Befriending Our Bodies program on Monday evenings.You can read about Eri and find her contact details on the “Our People “ page.
