Workshops and Gong Baths

”I have not long started my yoga journey and was apprehensive about forgetting what comes next in a Mysore class or even how to get into poses but Kate has created a very safe space which has empowered me to own my individual practice. Mysore gives me the space to feel though the poses particularly those that I find challenging and enjoy my practice even more. I am very grateful to you and Sarah for all your encouragement.”

“As someone new to Ashtanga, guided classes felt safe and there was a comfort in practising along side others. So despite Kate’s reassurances about guidance and cheat sheets I was reluctant to try a Mysore class. However I am so pleased that I did. Working at my own pace I am able to connect with my breath and body to look inward and feel my way into the poses so that the experience is both satisfying and spiritual.”

“Thank you for the opportunity you have given me to learn and develop a personal practice. The Hutch is a much needed restorative sanctuary for my body and mind.”

“I am blessed to have you in my life, thanks for all the awesome tuition and sharing your knowledge.”

Sound Bath and Yin practice

8-9.30pm

Friday 20 March and Thursday 7 May

Please contact Sarah if you want to book more than one space.

at St Mary’s Community Hall

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.

Forget silent meditation, ‘sound baths’ are the new way to get headspace

There’s no actually bathing involved…Evening standard
