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.

Mindfulness All-Day Retreat

This All-Day Retreat is for those who have completed an 8-week mindfulness course or similar. The theme will be awareness and connection. By developing greater awareness of our own inner self, we can start to connect with others. Not only does this help to improve levels of happiness and contentment, it also allows a greater sense of what can be done to make changes, in ourselves and society as a whole. The whole day will be in silence with a short period for questions and reflection at the end. A vegetarian lunch is included in the day.

Suitable for all and particular if you are very tired, stressed or recovering from illness. This extended class will finish with tea and delicious, healthy cake from Feed the Soul.

Shakti Dance

Join Magdalena for a beautiful soulful time for body & soul. Time in which your mind may just let go and dive into the experience of Sat – Chit – Ananada – a mantra which can be translated as Truth- Sat, Awareness-Chit and Bliss-Ananda.
It is a widely known term in yogic philosophy which we may bring more and more into our daily awareness and this will be a purpose of this workshop, to understand, practice and experience hints, moments, sensations of its true meaning.

Sat – Truth, absolute being or existence – that which is enduring and unchanging
Chit – consciousness, understanding and comprehension
Ananda – Bliss, a state of pure happiness, joy and sensual pleasure.

Some believe that the true state of Sat-Chit-Ananada is available permanently only to a few enlightened beings, yogis and gurus. This description however creates a separation, between us and them. Many of us collectively may indeed not be able to live in a permanent bliss, however think how amazing it would be! Shakti Dance – the yoga of dance is a very fluid, poetic practice, when reality and visions come
together, when we can embody who we truly are and who we are becoming.
During the workshop we will use the principles of Shakti Dance, rooted in the kundalini yoga practice and free self-expression, with sections for yoga stretches, group dance, free dance, relaxation, meditation and chanting.

  • Teacher: Magdalena Atkinson
  • Date: postponed
  • Cost: £15.00 in advance, £17 on the door

Spring Yin Yoga Workshop

Treat your body, mind and spirit to an afternoon of Yin Yoga focusing on supporting and balancing your energy during spring. After the cold, short, dark introspective days of Winter, with the longer, warmer days of Spring nature starts to bud and shoot. Moving from the Yin of Winter to the Yang of Spring, we, too, may feel our energy rising, with new projects and ideas bubbling to the surface.  We will be working with long held, mainly passive floor based poses, combined with a mindful awareness of the breath, to nurture the energy of the Wood Element, the Element of Spring in Traditional Chinese Medicine and its related Meridians, the Liver and Gall Bladder. We will end the session with a long relaxation to the sound of crystal singing bowls.
