A Gong Relaxation Sound Bath is a fantastic way to leave behind the stresses of modern life. It is also a great introduction to Sound Healing and Sound Therapy.

The Gong is played gently along with Himalayan & Crystal Singing Bowls. The captivating tones will lull you into a deep, restorative, relaxation.

There are a number of health benefits associated with achieving this state of deep relaxation: lower blood pressure, increased blood circulation, balancing of the nervous system, reduced mind chatter, better sleep patterns.

Some people gain mental clarity or feel very energised by the sessions. The session may even enhance your creativity. Some people also experience a reduced sense of pain, plus relief from symptoms of ongoing medical conditions and illnesses.

The sound helps to induce our natural relaxation response, taking us out of ‘fight or flight’ mode and into our restorative, parasympathetic state.

People with auto-immune conditions and conditions involving the nervous system seem to feel considerable benefits.

Participants generally leave with a feeling of inner peace and tranquillity and a reduced sense of stress, anxiety or worry.

A Gong Relaxation works on all levels of your being – mind, body, soul & spirit. The sound vibrations will provide a ‘sonic massage’ to your physical self and subtle energy fields, leaving you feeling relaxed, refreshed and restored.

Participants are encouraged to bring a blanket, a pillow or anything else you might need to make yourself cosy. Also, if you are unsure of the hammock feel free to grab a mat and get comfortable on the ground instead.

Yin yoga works on the fascia to create space and flexibility in the body with postures held for longer periods. Mindfulness uses awareness to ease stress in the mind and the body. They both are based on a non-striving approach, and have a strong emphasis on body awareness with a gentle, patient and persistent approach to personal transformation.This workshop will explore mindfulness and yin yoga together, through a series of asanas coupled with short mindfulness meditations. No previous yoga or mindfulness experience is necessary. This will be a gentle, restful practice. Participants are advised not to do vigorous exercise for a few hours after the workshop.

Ken is a mindfulness teacher and yoga practitioner, and he uses different styles of yoga in his teaching of mindfulness.

I visited for the first time this week and really enjoyed the Pilates class. It’s a beautiful studio with super helpful and friendly staff and I’m looking forward to trying more classes!
