with Becky Rutter
This workshop gives you the opportunity to really slow down and turn your awareness inwards.
Yin is deeply reflective practice, focusing on sensation, breath and spaciousness in the body and mind. It is a floor based yoga practice with extended holds in postures and plenty of time to begin to notice the subtle shifts in both energy and physicality.
The yin yoga section will be followed by a gong bath, an immersion in sacred sound that can transport you to a deeply meditative state.
Gongs promote a deep sense of well being and inner peace, with participants bathed in the sounds of the gongs often experiencing feelings of timelessness, visions or colours.The deep resonance of the gongs affects the body on a cellular level, releasing tension and stress by sonic massage.
For additional comfort in this session please bring with you a pillow/cushion, blanket, cushion/thick mat to lie on. We have yoga mats, blocks and bolsters for the yin yoga.
This workshop is not suitable for the following health conditions due to the powerful vibrations from the gongs: pregnancy, severe osteoporosis, epilepsy, sound sensitive conditions (tinnitus/ menieres/some migraine), recent surgery with plates/pins, pacemakers, unstable mental health conditions (schizophrenia/bipolar).
If you have any questions related to contraindications for gongs please contact email@example.com
