Raeeka will lead you through some gentle Kundalini yoga poses then you get to lie back, relax and enjoy the soothing effects of a long Gong bath.
The gong is an ancient instrument of healing and transformation. Multiple tones and overtones build as it is played, creating layers of sound which can be directly felt by those experiencing it.
The gong will help clear your mind of negative thoughts and will leave you feeling calm and de-stressed.
Pregnant ladies should only participate if they have experienced the gong before and feel comfortable with it.
"Withdrawal of the Senses"
Saturday 19th October 2019 2.30 - 4pm
£25 (£20 Contract members)
In a world of information overload how would it feel to explore your yoga practice without your sight? To tune your senses inwards and focus 100% on the body in the present moment.
In this 90 minute workshop we will explore the 5th limb of Pantajali's 8 limbed yoga system in a very literal way.
We will practice a very gentle flow whilst wearing blindfolds and then continue flowing (without blindfolds) without any verbal instruction.
Most yogis will practice Pratyahara to some degree whilst in Savasana at the end of class. Laying down and dropping into a deep relaxation we may experience a calmness where we no longer sense external stimuli. Pratyahara is the key to the relationship between the outer and inner aspects of yoga.
