We are all experiencing the effects of this flu pandemic in unique and challenging ways. How we cope and deal with it varies from day to day. Many of us are experiencing a roller coaster of emotions: worry, tension, fear, and at the opposite end, gratitude for being alive and appreciation for what we do have. The focus at this time is to take care of ourselves.
In this two and half hour workshop we will come together through the virtual world of Zoom, and immerse ourselves in practices that will nourish mind, body, spirit and emotions. The intention is to create a space of healing and support. Through the healing practices of yoga, we can increase our skills and strengthen our inner resources as we develop self-mastery: this is skill in action.
We have the opportunity to emerge from these challenging times with greater wisdom, strength, peace and compassion.
We will practice:-
Slow Flow Yoga to move, breathe and stretch (all levels)
Self-massage to melt tension
Meditation, self-reflection and intention
Restorative Yoga & Yoga Nidra
Through the physical asana practice we build, strength, flexibility & resilience.
Through self-massage we ease emotional & physical tension that is locked and stored in the tissues to relax and let go. You will learn some techniques to ease aches and pains.
Through Pranayama we release stress, cleanse our energy field, increase oxygen and increase our vitality and immune system
Through meditation, reflection and intention we rinse the mind of negativity, feel calm, peaceful and connected to our true nature.
You will need:
A space where you will be undisturbed
A Yoga mat to practice on
A tennis ball for self-massage (we can improvise if not)
Blankets, cushions, eye pillow/scarf

SOUND HEALING MEDITATION WORKSHOP
& SOUND BATH
With Quartz Crystal & Himalayan Singing Bowls
Sunday 8th March 2020
1.00pm - 3.30pm Investment: £28.00
One Life Studio 19 Barn Street, Stoke Newington, N16 0JT
Completely let go,
indulge your senses,
relax and nourish your being
In this two and a half hour workshop, we will immerse ourselves in the healing vibrations of sound, through sonic Pranayama meditation and Himalayan and Quartz Crystal singing bowls. A real treat for mind, body and soul.
We are all vibratory beings, as every cell in our body resonates and emits frequencies in our energetic field. This energy reflects the state of our health and vitality.
When we feel out of tune, we can experience this as low energy, moods or depleted immune system and we become more prone to stress. When struck and played, the sound-waves from the Himalayan and the quartz crystal singing bowls have a therapeutic effect on our physical, mental and emotional bodies, relaxing us on a deep level. They are powerful instruments with the ability to restore health and wellbeing.
When we are in optimum health, all our organs, tissues and bones communicate in harmony. Our mind and emotions feel balanced and there is a sense of presence and wellbeing that feels charged with vitality.
We will explore and experience:
the healing vibration of sonic pranayama through our own instrument, our voice. with Uijayi and Brahmari Humming Bee Breath.
Sound vibration on the physical body with Himalayan Bowls
Rest in savasana bathing in a sound bath with Quartz Crystal Singing bowls
Have half an hour at the end for tea, snacks and chat to ground and bring us back round.
