Next month we can enjoy not one, but two relaxation yoga and sound bath sessions! Over the last year I have been sharing monthly sessions on a Sunday evening and its now time to add an extra evening as we approach September. It will be lovely to make these sessions a little more available for all to enjoy so you can now take your pick, or even enjoy a discount when you attend any two workshops over the weekend!
These sessions are held in lovely indoor spaces, with lots of room, warmth and soothing sensations. Enjoy star lit ceilings, fairy lights, candles and allow yourself to drift off into a deep state of rest. They are open to all, no experience is needed and they are perfect for busy people with busy minds!
This practice is the perfect opportunity to recalibrate, to rest and to create more space in your life. This is a monthly immersion to help you settle into a deep state of rest. From busy lives, demanding jobs, to do lists, hectic schedules and a wandering mind its sometimes very difficult for us to switch off and enjoy a little time for ourself. This session offers a journey into releasing physical tension with a gentle and restorative yoga practice, allowing you to breathe and relax into each posture with the use of props. Restorative yoga is a restful practice where we don't move around a lot so its great for those who aren't familiar with yoga, have limited range of movement or suffer from aches and pains on a daily basis. This practice is all about rest.
For the sound bath part of the practice settle for a long relaxation (45 minutes), within the relaxation you rest comfortably wrapped in all your blankets and layers and will be guided through a meditation, this could be inspired by the seasons, philosophy, a quote, a visualisation, each practice will be different. Accompanying the guided relaxation will be live sounds, from singing bowls, chimes, drum, rainstick, hand pan, gong and voice this will then lead into a full sound bath experience allowing your body & mind to move through a journey of resting and releasing. This is one of the most profound practices you will ever experience and I cannot wait to share it with you.
