Regular Yin and Gong Baths, courses and workshops
Sound Bath and restorative Yin practice
Wednesday 12 October
at St Mary's Community Hall
This event falls a few weeks after the Autumn Equinox: the seasonal shift has well and truly taken place as we observe nature starting to withdraw inward ... we instinctively feel like we need to do the same in preparation for the colder, harsher months ahead. In a bygone era, Hunter Gatherers would be cumulating stores at this time to survive the winter ahead. This full moon also falls in the zodiac sign of Aries, a fire sign calling us to action, particularly where we identify that there are things holding us back from following our heart; maybe finding balance in your life, incorporating self-care or evaluating your relationships.
Please join us to experience the profound energy and relaxation from this most amazing ‘sound bath’. A sound bath makes it easier to arrive in a relaxed state without complicating how to get there.
In the first 40 minutes of the class Kate Towers guides you through a restorative Yin sequence with the background of gently resonating sound.
We then shift seamlessly into the second half resting completely supported by blocks and bolsters and bathed in the warmth of blankets and therapeutic sound. Simon Walker 'Sound hearts' sound therapist, uses a variety of sound and frequencing with gongs, Himalayan singing bowls, crystal bowls and various percussion instruments.
The purpose, and our collective goal, is to induce relaxation and explore personal inquiry. A ‘gong bath’ is a form of sound therapy that cuts through mental chatter creating a meditative state and deep relaxation.
Please bring your own mat, blanket, blocks, strap and bolster if you have one. If you need to borrow anything please let us know in advance and we will bring it with us.
Forget silent meditation, ‘sound baths’ are the new way to get headspace
There’s no actually bathing involved…Evening standard

6 week Somatic movement courses -
In our 6 week somatic movement courses we introduce the concept of somatics as movement therapy. Somatic movement is a neuro-muscular education to re-pattern the muscular responses to stress, injuries, accidents and the accumulation of poor postural habits. It is a functional movement system that acts as a key to un-lock ease, mobility and alignment in the body.
6 week course 2 Nov - 7 Dec
Wednesday evenings 7.15 - 9pm
