Sound Bath

Join sound therapist Chai Francesco for a very special and very blissful evening of relaxation as you bathe in the sublimely healing tones of crystal singing bowls and the oriental gong. The resonance of these instruments is tangible, making it not just an auditory experience but also like receiving a sound massage!

Throughout the ages, sound has been used to heal, strengthen and soothe. During a sound bath, most people experience a wonderful feeling of relaxation, and you can expect to leave the session feeling balanced, restored and ready to enjoy the weekend ahead.

When: Friday 27th January
Time: 7.30pm to 8.45pm
Cost: £20

Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra & Gong Bath Workshop

Join Paula Hines and Patricia Carlota for an evening of deep relaxation for both body and mind.

Yin Yoga is a deep, meditative practice that activates the parasympathetic nervous system (calming the body's fight/flight response). Physically the focus is on moving deeper into the connective tissues of the body (ligaments, tendons and fascia – the cling-film-like ‘tissue’ which holds our muscles together) in areas such as the hips and spine and typically involves holding poses for three to five minutes. This will prepare the body for a calming Yoga Nidra ('yogic sleep') practice – a guided meditation that will bring you to the edge of sleep, quietening the mind, reducing tension and promoting deep relaxation – ready for a blissful Gong Bath.

A Gong Bath is a form of Sound Healing where the Gong and other related instruments are played to induce wellbeing. The term 'bath' signifies being bathed in sound waves. Participants are invited to lie down comfortably on a yoga mat, close their eyes, relax and be cocooned in a sonic immersion. The practice provides a space to re-generate, re-nourish, and re-set your whole being - mind, body, emotions, soul, and energy field.

Please note – This workshop is not recommended for pregnant students. Please contact the studio if you:

  • suffer from a sound sensitive condition, epilepsy or are undergoing a major treatment.
  • have a pacemaker.
  • have any particular need and not sure if the sessions are suitable for you.
