If you'd like to learn how to improve your digestion or you experience bloating, gas, constipation, heartburn, indigestion then this is the workshop for you! 

This is a workshop to empower you with Ayurvedic knowledge and wisdom on how to 

 take care of your gut health.

Ayurveda takes the view that the material world and everything in it, organic and inorganic, is made up the 5 elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Ether. These combine to make The 3 Doshas of Vata (Air & Ether), Pitta (Fire & Water), Kapha (Earth & Water) constitutions. Each of us, are made up of the 3 doshas, though one or two of the doshas may be more dominant in our genetic make-up.When these energies are balanced we experience homeostasis but it is the Pitta element of fire that is responsible for healthy digestion.

 

In this Ayurveda and Yoga Workshop, we will come together and explore the Ancient wisdom of Ayurveda and look at ways we can support our gut health by exploring Agni, the digestive fire.

 

The digestive fire is in charge of all metabolic functions in the body. It plays a vital role in our digestion, perception, taste, touch, hearing, sense of vitality, mental clarity and alertness. When Agni and the functions it supports are balanced, we are healthy and feel well. We also feel sharper, clearer, energetic, stronger and we express ourselves in a more cheerful, confident and optimistic manner. When Agni is unbalanced, our health drops and we typically feel sluggish, slow and dull and are more likely to experience frustration, anger, and fear.

 

Recent research and clinical studies have found that 75% of our immunity starts in the gut, which means that this is where poor immune health and any digestive dysfunctions can be addressed. Understanding the concept of Agni and how this functions, is key to solving imbalances.

 

We will discover ways we can maximise on extracting and absorbing the nutrients from our food, and address some typical ailments that show up, such as gas, bloating, constipation, indigestion and heartburn. We will learn simple and practical applications of herbal tea preparations, culinary herbs and spices to improve and enhance digestion.

In this workshop we will explore:

  • The Ayurvedic approach to good digestion

  • How the 3 Doshas (Constitutions) manifest in digestive function & dysfunction

  • What’s Your Digestive Dosha Questionnaire (Ama/Agni)

  • Herbs and other good habits to aid digestion

  • Pranayama Breathwork (Kapalbhati to stoke the inner fire (Agni)

  • A Yoga Practice to aid healthy digestion

  • End with a lovely sound bath in savasana to soothe and nourish your senses.

 

The aim of the workshop is that you will come away feeling inspired to use Ayurvedic Top Tips to manage digestive imbalances and leave feeling relaxed and refreshed.

 Cacao Ceremony &

Sound Bath

A Journey through the Chakras

   27th October 2024 

                                at Yogahome  3.30pm - 5.30pm,  £32.00

Come and join in a soulful journey that will uplift and free your spirit!

Connect to your true nature

  

Bathe deeply in the ocean of sound

Vibrating within you, now as always

Resonating softly, permeating the space of the heart”

 Sutra 15, The Radiance Sutras, Lorin Roche

Come and take part in a journey through the Chakras. You will be guided by Flo in a cacao ceremony, breath-work, meditation and a sound bath with the Gong, Crystal and Himalayan Singing bowls. As you bathe in the transcendent and ethereal soundwaves,  rest and relax deeply and emerge feeling calm, nourished and renewed on all levels of being.

The Chakra Energy System is a highly organised system that operates in the Pranamaya Kosha, or energy body, that receives, transmits and allows life force to flow. The energy is distributed and circulated via the nadis (energy channels) to all organs and systems of the body, mind and heart. This is where the health of our energetic, emotional, mental, psychological and spiritual being is integrated, expressed and reflected.

 

We can think about the movement of energy like the movement of water through water ways, those channels need to be clear for the water to flow through. If those channels are blocked the water becomes stagnant and stuck, when this happens in our body, we are more likely to feel stressed out, susceptible to illness with low energy and poor health. If they are open, the energy is liberated and can flow freely, then we feel vitalised and vibrant. We feel good and our emotions are balanced, and energy levels abundant. 

 

Each chakra is a sphere of information, with qualities and characteristics relating to specific aspects of our growth and development. One of the ways to access this information is through meditation and reflection. We can tune in and tap into the inherent wisdom within and connect to their positive attributes.

 

The healing effects of cacao and the application of sound waves connect with the electro-magnetic forces of the body, for a profound therapeutic effect that soothes, calms, relaxes, and resets the nervous and energy system.  Repair, healing and replenishment of the body can only take place when we are in a state of rest and relaxation.

 

It is the perfect antidote to stress, worry, lack of energy and sleep problems, all of which can diminish the levels of energy we experience.

 

The intention of this event is to relax, harmonise and balance our energy, increase vitality and feel a heightened sense of wellbeing.

 

What to expect:

 

  • We will begin with breathwork, to help release any stagnant energy, clear and settle the mind in preparation for the cacao ceremony, meditation and sound bath.

 

  • We will sip on ceremonial Cacao to facilitate the opening of the portal to the heart space, so we can access the deeper dimensions of healing potential. The heart is considered to be the bridge between the lower and higher chakras. Cacao is described as a superfood with over 40 antioxidants and minerals, which will nourish and increase the ojas (life force) of the body. It enables the heart to resonate in a more expansive way, that helps to increase the connection between all the chakras.

 

  • We will engage in a chakra meditation to get to know and tap into the positive qualities of each one.

 

  • Relax in a sound bath and bathe in the ethereal sounds of the crystal singing bowls and the deep earthy tones of the gong and Himalayan bowls.

 

What to bring

  • Wear comfortable clothing

  • Bring extra layers to be warm as you lay down for the sound bath

  • Option to being cushion and extra blanket for extra comfort

  • Water to drink

 

The benefits of cacao, meditation and sound healing

 

  • Helps to release stored tension and stress

  • Reduces anxiety, irritation and anger

  • Helps to reset the nervous system to “relax, rest and digest” state of being

  • Balances the immune system

  • Helps to calm over-active adrenals

  • Can help release pain

  • Instils a sense of deep peace and calm

  • Can help give mental and emotional clarity

 

About the Cacao Ceremony

Raw ceremonial cacao is used in the ceremony. It is raw chocolate made from cacao beans that are untampered and unadulterated. Known as “the food of the Gods”, it is used in ceremony in many indigenous cultures. It is considered to be a superfood containing over 40 anti-oxidants and minerals. Prepared with water, oat milk and maple syrup, it is suitable for vegans.  Cacao is conducive to meditation, as it has heart-expanding qualities that help to connect to our intuition and to receive inner guidance.

 

Sound Bathing

Bathing in sound is an immersive experience that soothes and calms the mind on a deep level and is found to be valuable for releasing stress. Some people go on a sound journey and feel taken to a deep place of peace. Others experience physical sensations of tingling, release of blocked or stuck energy, or the release of physical tension and pain. The sounds can bring visions or can be a very visual experience, or help to connect to inner wisdom and the inner resourcefulness of intuition. The soundwaves can help clear the mind, for a sense of lightness of being that is full of ease and tranquility. Each person's experience can vary and is unique. 

Coming together with cacao and sound healing helps our energy fields to harmonise and raise our vibration, through what is known as “resonant entrainment”, with calm, peace and happiness.

The other-worldly, ethereal notes of the crystal bowls have a wonderful way of transcending tension, that will lighten and uplift your mood, while the metal Himalayan singing bowls bring a grounding quality to keep us earthed and connected to the present moment.

This event is suitable for all experiences. Tea will be served at the end to gently ease you back ground you.

Bathe deeply in the ocean of sound

Vibrating within you, now as always

Resonating softly, permeating the space of the heart”

 Sutra 15, The Radiance Sutras, Lorin Roche

Come and immerse yourself in a sound journey through the Chakras. Flo will guide you in breath-work, meditation and a sound bath with the mighty Gong, Crystal and Himalayan Singing bowls. As you bathe in the transcendent sound waves, rest and relax deeply and emerge feeling calm, clear and nourished on all levels of being.

​The Chakras are a highly organised energy system that operates in the Pranamaya Kosha, or energy body, where they receive, store and transmit the flow of life force. The energy is distributed and circulated via the nadis (energy channels) to all organs and systems of the body, mind and heart. This is where the health of our energetic, emotional, mental, psychological and spiritual being is integrated, expressed and reflected.

We can think about the movement of energy like the movement of water through channels – they need to be clear for the water to flow through. If those channels are blocked the water becomes stagnant and has nowhere to go. When this happens to the energy in our body, we are more likely to feel sluggish, stressed and susceptible to illness, resulting in low energy and poor health. When the energy channels are open, energy is liberated and flows in abundance with strength and vitality. We feel well, happy and our emotions are balanced.

Each chakra is a storehouse of information, with qualities and characteristics that governs specific aspects of our growth, health and development. We will dive deep and tune in to the healing potential of the chakras through sound meditation, inquiry, reflection and deep rest. The ethereal tones of the angelic crystal bowls and deep primal sounds of the Gong, have a purifying, relaxing and healing effect that touches deeply into the cellular level of being and beyond. The sonic vibrations help to reset body, mind, emotions and spirit, bringing a sense of lightness and peace.

 

It is the perfect antidote to stress, worry, lack of energy and sleep problems. You will be able to shed any heavy burdens or worries to feel lighter, brighter and at one with yourself.

 What to expect

  • We will begin with breath work, to help release and clear any stagnant energy in 

        preparation for meditation and sound bath.

  • We will engage in a chakra meditation to get to know and tap into the positive and

        negative qualities of each one.

  • We will use inquiry, oracle cards and journalling to access information

  • Relax in a sound bath and bathe in the healing sounds of the crystal singing bowls and the earthy tones of the gong and Himalayan bowls.

 

What to bring

·       Wear comfortable clothing

·       Bring extra layers to be warm as you lay down for the sound bath

·       Option to bring a cushion and extra blanket for extra comfort

·       Journal/paper and pen for any insights

·       Water to drink
