Weekend 'at home' retreats and workshops
1 November - Retreat 'at home'
Join Sarah Vaughan and Becky Pell for a unique 'at home' taste of our popular 'find your balance retreats'.
In this three hour home retreat, we will meet from opposite sides of the globe to begin your weekend in the best way possible.
Sarah will begin with some breath-work, pranayama and asana exploring the qualities and changing nature of the breath. Looking at how we can move both more subtly and expansively with greater awareness and connection to our breath. Becky will then lead you into a deep restorative practice from her home in Australia topped off with a deluxe Yoga Nidra.
We would love you to join us online to take this time to flow, rest, and reconnect with yourself.
8.15-11.30am UK time
Please arrive on your mat prepared with a blanket, a block (book or folded towel), a bolster (or tightly rolled large blanket) and extra layers to keep warm as we settle into the restorative and yoga nidra practice.
You may want to create a quiet sacred space for a blissfully peaceful morning, but please don't worry if family life interrupts you as we will all be on mute and inviting the world around us to settle and join in our bliss.
Sound Bath and restorative Yin practice
- at St Mary’s Community Hall
- Thursday 12 November 8-9.30pm
Come along and 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 40 minutes of the class Kate 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.
Spaces are limited to allow more space for appropriate distancing between mats - please bring your own equipment and let us know in advance if you need to borrow anything.
Forget silent meditation, ‘sound baths’ are the new way to get headspace
There’s no actually bathing involved…Evening standard
An introduction to Kundalini
-Kundalini and the chakra system-
Kundalini is energy that resides at the base of our spine. As it rises it activates our chakras which are energy centres found in our body. During this two hour workshop we will be working with our breath, asana (posture), mudra (hand locks/ positions), meditation and mantra (sacred sound) to balance the chakra system. The balance of the chakras is not only important to find spiritual and mental peace but it also aids our physical wellbeing. The workshop is open to anyone with an open mind and open heart that would like to go within and find inner peace.
