Autumn Yin Yoga

Treat your body, mind and spirit to a morning of Yin Yoga focusing on balancing and supporting your energy during the autumn season. After the heat and bloom of summer, autumn is the time of harvest and gathering in preparation for the cold, short days of winter. So, it is for us, too, we are slowing down and turning inward. Focusing on passive, long held, floor based poses, together with a mindful awareness of the breath, we will nurture the energy of the Metal Element, the Element of autumn in Traditional Chinese Medicine and its related meridians, the Lung and Large Intestine. We will also continue to explore ways of boosting and supporting the immune system. We will end the session with a long relaxation to the sound of crystal singing bowls.

Gong Sound Bath

 
The Gong is a sacred and ancient instrument which has been used for thousands of years for deep healing, rejuvenation and transformation.
Physically, the resonance produced releases tension and blocks in the body, stimulates the glandular system and helps balance the nervous system. Mentally, the sound of the Gong helps clean out the subconscious mind, rewriting old patterns, slows down brain waves, and aids in reaching Shuniya – a place of stillness within ourselves where we can access our innate wisdom.
Playing the Gong after Kundalini Yoga is especially beneficial as the body is even more receptive to the healing vibrations it carries. The whole cellular system can be regenerated at a very deep level which can be profoundly restorative, a perfect antidote to today’s stressful lifestyles.
“The Gong is the first and last instrument for the human mind, there is only one thing that can supersede and command the human mind, the sound of the Gong. It is the first sound in the universe, the sound that created this universe. It’s the basic creative sound. To the mind, the sound of the gong is like a mother and father that gave it birth. The mind has no power to resist a gong that is well played.” Yogi Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga
During the session, we will practise a simple Kriya to stretch, energise and prepare the body, followed by a meditation to clear and quieten the mind. There will be a short relaxation then the Gong will be played.
You should wear loose, comfortable clothing which is easy to move and stretch in, and bring water to drink. Mats and blankets will be supplied. Please note that Gong baths are not recommended during pregnancy.

Returning To The Balance – Shakti Dance

Shakti Dance is an invitation to look inside yourself and see how to become more creative – in your movements and thoughts – to be in tune with the desires of your soul. Let your body discover how good it feels to be fully awake, filled with this creative energy! Let’s dance in gratitude for being alive, for the rich harvest and nature’s care. May we remember who we are, Divine Sparks learning to be more aware our ourselves.

Being aware of the Turning of the Wheel of the seasons, may we dare to nurture our inner light while descending into the darker time of the year.
Shakti Dance is a practice inspired by the wisdom of yoga, combining the awareness of your body, mind and spirit. It uses yoga postures (asanas), different dance styles and free movement. On an energetic level, Shakti Dance helps to develop your intuition, to release blocks in your energy system and to experience mystical states.

My Shakti Dance workshops are enriched by my music, singing and playing different instruments (guitar, dulcimer, drums). I also combine them with shamanism, astrology, I-Ching and personal development, taking you on a very special and personal spiritual journey.
