Come along for some feelgood music and mantra therapy at my Sunday Chanting and Mantra Circle.

 

We will work with voice, drums, singing bowls and other instruments and percussion on occasion. All in the name of raising vibration, freeing the voice, connecting with ourselves and others in devotion and joy — also to just take time out to enjoy and express ourselves through sound.

 

This work is so necessary in our modern world, helping to ease anxiety, stress and isolation. All are welcome — no musical or singing experience needed — but I am hoping to build a small kirtan band eventually, so if you’d like to bring a drum or another instrument that would be great too.

I will lead the learning of the chants and leading the kirtan.

 

Bring a cushion, blanket, some water to drink — anything to keep yourselves comfortable.

Yin Yoga is a deliciously gentle but deep practice in which floor-based postures are held for between 2–5 minutes. By slowing down and softening, we can enable stillness to arrive in the physical body. We learn to soften, let go and allow what is, with an attitude of kindness and acceptance.

 

Recognising the preciousness of this life, requires a real effort to slow down. Yin Yoga is beneficial and suitable for all levels of Yoga practitioners. Its deep, supported stretches and holds create a gentle traction and compression that work on the body’s “body stocking”, the myofascia — helping to encourage lengthening and strengthening of the deeper muscles and connective tissues, flushing out toxins and releasing tension from tight areas such as hamstrings or lower back. In this workshop we will also move into some wonderful restorative poses followed by total full-body guided meditation using the deeply healing Total Yoga Nidra.
