Brighton: Welcoming the NewYear: Kundalini Yoga & Gong Meditation Workshop

2:00 PM14:00

Brighton: Welcoming the NewYear: Kundalini Yoga & Gong Meditation Workshop

We invite you to welcome the New Year together with us! 3 hours of merging with the energies of 2018. How do you feel the start of January has been? Intentions for the rest of 2018? After the session we invite you to stay for tea & snacks. 

You are so welcome to this afternoon where Maria’s Kundalini Yoga and Patricia’s Gong Meditation merge to create a unique session. Together they explore Kundalini Yoga (including chanting, movements, breathing and meditation) with a one-hour sound healing meditation in the vibrations of multiple high-quality gongs, singing bowls, voice, a shruti box, and various bells, rattles, shakers, and chimes.

Helping us connect with our body, mind and spirit, Kundalini yoga works with Kundalini energy, Prana, our life energy. It helps us dissolve blockages and imbalances, so our prana can flow freely and we can heal physically and emotionally. Kundalini yoga was for a long time a secret practice, but in 1969 Yogi Bhajan began to teach it openly throughout the world, as he knew what a powerful tool Kundalini yoga is for the challenges of our time.��

Creating a nurturing and transformational space, a Gong Meditation is a form of Sound Healing. At its heart is the sound and vibration of the gong, which works as a tool to balance the physical body, mind, emotions, energetic body, and spirit. Known as the sound of total resonance, the sound of the gong gives the body a sonic massage helping to: stimulate circulation, activate the parasympathetic nervous system; slow down brainwaves and connect with meditative states and insights; let go of emotional ‘burdens’; clear energetic debris; and expand awareness.

ABOUT THE FACILITATORS
Maria Varanpal is a Kundalini Yoga teacher who loves to combine the transforming possibilities of a Yoga of awareness with Sound healing. She wants to create a space where we can be conscious right now and through that welcoming life as a gift with the beautiful diversity of emotions, thoughts, and sensations.

Patricia Carlota is a Gong Practitioner who is passionate about sharing the sound of the Gong and related sound tools. Her Sound Healing practice specialises in the use of high quality large gongs, singing bowls, the voice, shruti box, shamanic percussion, chimes and bells. She is interred in connecting to intuition and heart space, exploring perception, and expanding consciousness.��

Brighton: Yin Yoga & Gong Bath

Brighton: Yin Yoga & Gong Bath

A YIN YOGA JOURNEY WITH GONG BATH

A Yin yoga journey through space, time and sound - waking up your feeling body and quietening your thinking mind.

Let us guide and support you through a healing and opening yin yoga sequence that will work with the meridians of the body, accompanied by a soothing and expansive Gong Bath, led by the Patricia Carlota.

***

ABOUT YIN YOGA
A Yin Yoga practice consists of deep, searching and opening sequences of asanas or postures, held on the floor for anything from 3-5 minutes. We reconnect with the deeper areas of our bodies, predominately the connective tissues that wrap around and hold our joints together. Through exercising these 'yin' tissues we will stimulate the energetic Meridian system of the body and begin to explore & release physical, mental and emotional tension. Yin yoga is a very effecive way to increase flexibility. Everyone's body is different, and so, throughout the practice, we encourage you to listen to your bodies and to find your own unique variation/modification at any given moment, day, week or month. Infusing the practice with an intention of self-acceptance, kindness and creativity, the result is deep regeneration that literally reempowering us and sets us up for a life and whatever we choose to do and accept.

***

ABOUT GONG BATHS
A Gong Bath (or Gong Meditation) is a form of Sound Healing where the Gong and related sound tools are played to promote relaxation, meditative states, self transformation, enhanced creativity, and general well being.
The term 'bath' signifies being bathed in sound waves - there is no water or touching involved. Fully clothed, you are invited to lay comfortably on a yoga mat (or sit on a chair/cushion if you find it more comfortable), wrap yourself in a blanket, close your eyes, relax, and be cocooned in a sonic immersion.
A Gong Bath is the perfect 'timeless' zone to simply 'be'. It provides a space to re-generate, re-nourish, and re-set your whole being - mind, body, emotions, soul, and energy field. Producing a strong sound wave, the vibration of the Gong massages the physical body, stimulates the dermatomes, de-clutters the mind. clears any emotional and energetic debris, and feeds the soul. 
A Gong Bath provides a personal experience that adds a whole new palette of colors, nuances and shades to life. All you have to do is let go and relax.

London: Winter Solstice Yin Yoga & Gong Bath
Dec
16
3:30 PM15:30

London: Winter Solstice Yin Yoga & Gong Bath

(FULLY BOOKED)
 

Join Samantha Rogers and Patricia Carlota for a Winter Solstice Yin Yoga and Gong Bath.

The winter solstice is a time for renewal, re-connection and re-birthing. The longest night offers us an opportunity to go inwards and for deep reflection on the previous year and the coming year. We can tune into that quiet voice within by first softening into long-held yin postures, then affirming and setting our intentions through a yoga nidra practice, and finally allowing the mind, body and spirit to come into alignment through the healing gong relaxation. We will set the foundations for gratitude, inner listening and deep surrender.

The winter solstice marks the shortest day and longest night of the year; and the official start of winter. The darkest night invites us to fully turn our awareness inwards, to dive deep into the depths of our beings and shed light on the places we have perhaps forgotten or neglected. Like a tree that sheds its leaves, showing the bear bones of its being, we too have the opportunity to shed what no longer serves us and fully stand within the core of our being. It is a wonderful time to reflect back on the year; acknowledging how far we have come, how we have grown and evolved and what still needs nurturing and tending to.

By honouring the shadow within us, we bring light to our soul's innermost desires; that which we wish to see manifested out in the world. The darkness within and without is a time then to nurture the soil, the earth of our being, so we can prepare to plant the seeds of our dreams in the springtime. It is a wonderful time to slow down, rest and gently fall into a greater state of being rather than doing.

London: Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra & Gong Bath
Dec

6:45 PM18:45

London: Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra & Gong Bath

Realign with your deepest self with Paula Hines and Patricia Carlota - an evening of deep relaxation for both body and mind.

How to book: Please book via Embody Wellness website here

Yin Yoga is a deep, meditative practice that activates the parasympathetic nervous system (calming the body's fight/flight response). Physically the focus is on moving deeper into the connective tissues of the body (ligaments, tendons and fascia – the cling-film-like ‘tissue’ which holds our muscles together) in areas such as the hips and spine and typically involves holding poses for three to five minutes. This will prepare the body for a calming Yoga Nidra ('yogic sleep') practice – a guided meditation that will bring you to the edge of sleep, quietening the mind, reducing tension and promoting deep relaxation – ready for a blissful Gong Bath.

A Gong Bath is a form of Sound Healing where the Gong and other related instruments are played to induce wellbeing. The term 'bath' signifies being bathed in sound waves. Participants are invited to lie down comfortably on a yoga mat, close their eyes, relax and be cocooned in a sonic immersion. The practice provides a space to re-generate, re-nourish, and re-set your whole being - mind, body, emotions, soul, and energy field.

London: Rebirthing Breathwork with Gong
Nov

5:00 PM17:00

London: Rebirthing Breathwork with Gong

DESCRIPTION:

Rebirthing with Gongs was first developed two years ago by Purnima in a work partnership with Brazilian Sound Therapist Susan Manjula.


Brought to the UK in 2016, this project is an initiative of Rebirthing Club of London and SonicSoul, and aims to offer a new wave of Conscious Breath Therapy and Sound Therapy in group sessions.

Rebirthing - Conscious Breathing is a breathwork therapy that can revitalise and rejuvenate the body, refresh the mind, delight the soul, and enliven our actions and relationships.

The Gong is a musical percussion instrument of ancient origins used in Sound Therapy. Known as the sound of total resonance, the gong is played with the intention of bringing people into a state of harmony. Its frequencies and resonance can quieten the mind, relax the physical body, release emotional blockages, and cleanse the energetic field. 

Together, these two terapies, potentialise the benefits of a session. The Rebirthing promotes an expansion and the Gongs helps to dissolve resistance.

The session starts at 3pm. Please arrive 5 minutes before. Thank you. 

The workshop includes: 
-An induction section where you learn the breathing technique of Rebirthing Breathwork, and are introduced to the sounds of the gong. 

-A 90 minutes practice section. You lay down on a comfortable mat ready to begin practice. In the beginning of the session, the Rebirthing Breathwork is accompanied by recorded music. The gong will come in at a specific point in the practice, when most resistance is met. 

-A sharing and feedback section with snacks and a cup of tea.

Brighton: Waning Gibbous Moon Gong Bath

7:30 PM19:30

Brighton: Waning Gibbous Moon Gong Bath

Dear Gong Friends,

Welcome to the Gong Space.

A Gong Bath is a form of Sound Healing where the gong is played to create a variety of benefits including relaxation, meditative states, harmony and balance, enhanced creativity, and general well being.

The gong bath session is 75 minutes and includes a guided meditation, reiki energy, and an immersion in the vibrational field and sonic universe of 4 Gongs and related sound healing instruments including himalayan singing bowls, a shruti box, the voice, bells, a rain stick, a frame drum, a Koshi, a croaking frog güiro, shakers and leaf rattles. There is herbal tea available before the session, and a grounding food (Gluten Free and Vegan) is shared at the end of the session for grounding.

The intention for this session is to honour energies of the Waning Gibbous Moon. The Waning Gibbous Moon is the first phase after the Full Moon, meaning the moon is decreasing in size towards the New Moon. As the illumination of the moon decreases in size, it gives us the perfect moment to focus on letting go of what no longer serves us - negative habbits, thoughs, patterns, behaviours. I invite you to reflect on what you would like to let go, bring it as an intention for the session, and ask for guidance and revelation.

 

(THINGS TO KNOW)
 

This is the third Gong Bath of a 9 weekly series.

Until the end of the year, during a period of 9 weeks, there will be a Gong Bath every week at Purple Turtle Wellbeing. 

During this period you can drop in, or book a pass of 6 weeks.
Drop in: £12 (£8 concession)
6 week pass: £45 (limited availability)

Brighton: Kundalini Yoga and Gong Meditation workshop

3:00 PM15:00

Brighton: Kundalini Yoga and Gong Meditation workshop

We are so grateful to welcome you to this afternoon where Maria’s Kundalini Yoga and Patricia’s Gong Meditation merge to create a unique session. Together they explore Kundalini Yoga (including chanting, movements, breathing and meditation) with a one-hour sound healing meditation in the vibrations of multiple high-quality gongs, singing bowls, voice, a shruti box, and various bells, rattles, shakers, and chimes. 


Helping us connect with our body, mind and spirit, Kundalini yoga works with Kundalini energy, Prana, our life energy. It helps us dissolve blockages and imbalances, so our prana can flow freely and we can heal physically and emotionally. Kundalini yoga was for a long time a secret practice, but in 1969 Yogi Bhajan began to teach it openly throughout the world, as he knew what a powerful tool Kundalini yoga is for the challenges of our time.


Creating a nurturing and transformational space, a Gong Meditation is a form of Sound Healing. At its heart is the sound and vibration of the gong, which works as a tool to balance the physical body, mind, emotions, energetic body, and spirit. Known as the sound of total resonance, the sound of the gong gives the body a sonic massage helping to: stimulate circulation, activate the parasympathetic nervous system; slow down brainwaves and connect with meditative states and insights; let go of emotional ‘burdens’; clear energetic debris; and expand awareness.

Eastbourne: Welcome to the Gong Space - a Gong Bath Workshop

Welcome to the Gong Space

Join us for a 2 hour relaxing workshop and journey into the meditative world of the gong and the gong bath at the lovely seaside studio of Natural Fitness Centre - Eastbourne.

The afternoon will be very relaxing and magical with sound of the gongs and the sound of the sea in the background. 

The first part of the workshop will be interactive and participants learn about the sound of the gong, the dynamics of a gong bath, and experience playing the gong.

In the second part of the workshop, participants receive a Gong Bath, a form of Sound Healing where the gong and related intuitive sound tools are played to promote a state of deep relaxation that facilitates meditation, healing, transformation, and general wellbeing.

The term 'bath' signifies being bathed in sound waves (no water involved). During a session, participants are invited to lie down comfortably on a yoga mat, close their eyes, relax, and be immersed in a deep listening and sensing experience as they are cocooned in the sonic vibrational field of a number of Sound Healing instruments (gong, singing bowls, shruti box, shamanic drum, the voice, bells, shakers, rattles, and chimes).

London: Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Gong Bath Workshop
Oct
14
6:45 PM18:45

London: Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra and Gong Bath Workshop

How to book: Please book via Embody Wellness website here

Realign with your deepest self with Paula Hines and Patricia Carlota - an evening of deep relaxation for both body and mind.

Yin Yoga is a deep, meditative practice that activates the parasympathetic nervous system (calming the body's fight/flight response). Physically the focus is on moving deeper into the connective tissues of the body (ligaments, tendons and fascia – the cling-film-like ‘tissue’ which holds our muscles together) in areas such as the hips and spine and typically involves holding poses for three to five minutes. This will prepare the body for a calming Yoga Nidra ('yogic sleep') practice – a guided meditation that will bring you to the edge of sleep, quietening the mind, reducing tension and promoting deep relaxation – ready for a blissful Gong Bath.

A Gong Bath is a form of Sound Healing where the Gong and other related instruments are played to induce wellbeing. The term 'bath' signifies being bathed in sound waves. Participants are invited to lie down comfortably on a yoga mat, close their eyes, relax and be cocooned in a sonic immersion. The practice provides a space to re-generate, re-nourish, and re-set your whole being - mind, body, emotions, soul, and energy field.

 

Please note – This workshop is not recommended for pregnant students. Please contact the studio if you:

  • suffer from a sound sensitive condition, epilepsy or are undergoing a major treatment.
  • have a pacemaker.
  • have any particular need and not sure if the sessions are suitable for you.

Any questions please contact me  (07825166474 / welcome@sonicsoul.uk)

A Weekend of Yoga & Hiking & Sound in Waterfall Country

to Sep 3

A Weekend of Yoga & Hiking & Sound in Waterfall Country

Immerse Yourself in Nature, Yoga & Sound

Dates: Friday 1 September – Sunday 3 September

For more info and to book please go to: http://pureyogazone.com/yoga-hiking-retreat-brecon-beacons-wales/

We are very excited to be offering this weekend away full of yoga, hiking in the glorious Brecon Beacons and evening gong sessions to complete your total relaxation.

Buckland Hall is usually reserved for conferences and larger events but every once in a while we have access to book in to this exclusive manor house that feels more like a home than a hotel. Though it’s only a few hours away from London, you’ll feel like you’ve arrived in a completely different world, with sweeping views of green expanse for as far as the eye can see.

The weekend includes two nights at the grand country mansion of Buckland Hall, dynamic flow classes on Saturday and Sunday morning, relaxing classes on Friday and Saturday evenings, gong baths to open and close the weekend, full organic vegetarian catering from the fantastic chef and a guided tour of the Four Falls walk – one of the most highly rated hikes in Wales where you can 

 

Weekend Description

Buckland Hall is an enchanting 4 star country mansion set in the depths of the rural Brecon Beacons mountains, with 62 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds and woodland to explore that include a stretch of the river Usk. Indulge yourself with vegetarian and organic food catered for by their chef, consisting of breakfasts, dinners, packed lunch on Saturday and lunch on Sunday. To ensure you truly relax and revitalise we’ll have energetic morning yoga on Saturday and Sunday and relaxing refreshing classes on Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. A weekend at Buckland Hall itself is fabulous and it’s a great place to explore, but to make it even more exciting we’ll add in three stunning walks in the Brecon Beacon mountains taking in waterfalls, mountains, caves and more.

ITINERARY:

Friday 01 September

Arrive at Buckland Hall from 5pm. An early yoga class at 6pm for those who have arrived and then we’ll then have dinner there shortly afterwards before coming together for the opening Gong Bath led by the wonderful Patricia Carlotta.

Saturday 02 September

Morning yoga at 8am followed by a fantastic breakfast of healthy fare including the tastiest overnight oats you’ll find anywhere.

We’ll take packed lunches and head out for the Four Waterfalls walk where we’ll explore the largest cave entrance in Wales. From there we walk along the trail leading to Sgwd Clun-Gwyn (the fall of the white meadow), Sgwd Isaf Clun-Gwyn, Sgwd y Pannwr (which was once used for washing Welsh wool) and Sgwd-yr-Eira (the waterfall of snow) on the River Mellte in the heart of Waterfall Country. The final waterfall, Sgwd-yr-Eira is the most photographed as you can walk behind the curtain of water on a path once used by sheep farmers. The walk itself is just under 4 miles and follows an easy route that is suitable for all levels.

We’ll then head back to Buckland Hall late afternoon for another yoga class followed by dinner and an evening yoga nidra & gong bath. If you’re still awake after that (!) you can spend the rest of the evening curled up near one of the fireplaces.

Sunday 03 September:

We’ll start off at 830am with an invigorating yoga class before breakfast.

After breakfast you’ll have the option of exploring the grounds on your own or a quick hike up a hill that provides an amazing view of the Black Hills.

Lunch is served at Buckland Hall at 1pm, after which we’ll enjoy a final restorative yoga session and closing gong ceremony.

Departure is 3pm.

 

Accommodation

Buckland Hall is set in the spectacular countryside of the Brecon Beacons National Park, surrounded by mountains with vistas along the Usk Valley. From the days of Arthur, through a medieval prince of Wales to Lord Buckland, the site has been home for generations of families and hobbits (Buckland Hall was reportedly the inspiration for J R R Tokien in choosing the childhood home for Frodo Baggins, when the author was in the area). Now its doors welcome you to experience the comfort and therapeutic qualities of this idyllic country mansion.

At Buckland Hall with 60 acres of gardens, parkland and miles of country walks along the River Usk, you’ll find plenty of space in which to roam and unwind. Some of the specimen trees in the arboretum are over 400 years old. The ornamental lake with its graceful swans is a particular haven of tranquility.

All rooms are ensuite and most overlook the gardens and have stunning views of the mountains and river Usk. The bedrooms are decorated simply and tastefully offering a wonderfully relaxing environment. You can reserve a double or twin room or limited availability triple rooms.

 

Food & Drink

Amazing vegetarian three-course dinners on Friday & Saturday evenings (vegan option available on request)

A full buffet style breakfast on Saturday & Sunday mornings

A packed lunch Saturday afternoon

Sunday lunch before departure

You’ll need to bring money for the honesty bar should you wish any alcoholic drinks.

Please note, there are no shops locally accessible to Buckland so it’s best to bring everything you might want for the weekend!

Transport

Train Travel from London: The nearest train station is Abergavenny. Take a train from Paddington Station to Newport. These are the London-Swansea trains and are frequent (mainly on the hour every hour). At Newport you connect to a train for Abergavenny.

2. Just before Abergavenny, you come to a large double roundabout. Keep on A40 through Abergavenny towards Brecon. Along the A40 you pass through Crickhowell, then Bwlch. Keep on the A40 and, after going through Bwlch, you pass a series of three lay-bys on your left.

About one mile from Bwlch, the third lay-by has a small post-box. Just after that lay-by, you will see the new CREAM sign to the left side of the road. Turn left off the A40.

3. Turn left down the lane. Please drive carefully along the lane and give priority to farm activity. After half a mile, opposite the farm you will see another sign to Buckland Hall to your right. Follow the drive all the way to the mansion house.

London: Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra & Gong Bath

How to book: Please book via Embody Wellness website here

Realign with your deepest self with Paula Hines and Patricia Carlota - an evening of deep relaxation for both body and mind.

Yin Yoga is a deep, meditative practice that activates the parasympathetic nervous system (calming the body's fight/flight response). Physically the focus is on moving deeper into the connective tissues of the body (ligaments, tendons and fascia – the cling-film-like ‘tissue’ which holds our muscles together) in areas such as the hips and spine and typically involves holding poses for three to five minutes. This will prepare the body for a calming Yoga Nidra ('yogic sleep') practice – a guided meditation that will bring you to the edge of sleep, quietening the mind, reducing tension and promoting deep relaxation – ready for a blissful Gong Bath.

A Gong Bath is a form of Sound Healing where the Gong and other related instruments are played to induce wellbeing. The term 'bath' signifies being bathed in sound waves. Participants are invited to lie down comfortably on a yoga mat, close their eyes, relax and be cocooned in a sonic immersion. The practice provides a space to re-generate, re-nourish, and re-set your whole being - mind, body, emotions, soul, and energy field.

How to book: Bookings are made via ReCentre's website here . You can also call the studio (020 7099 0048)

For those who are interested in experiencing sound for the purposes of deep relaxation, meditation and general well-being.

Guests will be invited to lay down on mats, close their eyes, and experience deep listening as they are saturated and cocooned in sounds. 'SonicSoul' & 'Sound Interventions' will endeavour to deliver sound frequencies to the human body through the ears and directly through the skin, as a sound massage.

*The Gongs will be set up by each sound practitioner specifically to create Gong-Surround-Sound, as they attempt to entrain the left and right hemispheres of your brain.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

You are so welcome to this afternoon where Maria’s Kundalini Yoga and Patricia’s Gong Meditation merge to create a unique session. Together they explore Kundalini Yoga (including chanting, movements, breathing and meditation) with a one-hour sound healing meditation in the vibrations of multiple high-quality gongs, singing bowls, voice, a shruti box, and various bells, rattles, shakers, and chimes.

Helping us connect with our body, mind and spirit, Kundalini yoga works with Kundalini energy, Prana, our life energy. It helps us dissolve blockages and imbalances, so our prana can flow freely and we can heal physically and emotionally. Kundalini yoga was for a long time a secret practice, but in 1969 Yogi Bhajan began to teach it openly throughout the world, as he knew what a powerful tool Kundalini yoga is for the challenges of our time.

Creating a nurturing and transformational space, a Gong Meditation is a form of Sound Healing. At its heart is the sound and vibration of the gong, which works as a tool to balance the physical body, mind, emotions, energetic body, and spirit. Known as the sound of total resonance, the sound of the gong gives the body a sonic massage helping to: stimulate circulation, activate the parasympathetic nervous system; slow down brainwaves and connect with meditative states and insights; let go of emotional ‘burdens’; clear energetic debris; and expand awareness.

About the Facilitators:

Maria Varanpal is a Kundalini Yoga teacher who loves to combine the transforming possibilities of a Yoga of awareness with Sound healing. She wants to create a space where we can be conscious right now and through that welcoming life as a gift with the beautiful diversity of emotions, thoughts, and sensations.

Patricia Carlota is a Gong Practitioner who is passionate about sharing the sound of the Gong and related sound tools.  Her Sound Healing practice specialises in the use of high quality large gongs, singing bowls, the voice, shruti box, shamanic percussion, chimes and bells. She is interred in connecting to intuition and heart space,  exploring perception, and expanding consciousness.
