Community Sound Meditation sessions

A monthly invitation for you to join me on a 60 minute journey into meditation and sound. You will be immersed in beautiful sounds that are nurturing and healing to mind, body and spirit. Sound bath meditations are a great way to unplug from the fast activity that can often be the reality of life and allows us to shift to a slower pace coming back to a place of rest, nurture, peace. All you are required to do is lie down and be comfortable. Bring a yoga mat, eye pillow or scarf, pillow and a blanket and relax to the sounds and vibrations of Tibetan singing bowls, The Chinese Wind gong and Sun gong. Each session is £10 with concessions available to students and those not working. The venue is Crofton Halls which is next to Orpington train station. There is plenty of free parking on site.

Yin and Sound - Tunbridge Wells - limited spaces remaining

Join me for a Yin yoga practice followed with a gentle sound bath to close the session

Often considered to be more challenging than a fast paced Vinyasa class is a slow Yin class. We live in a culture that is constantly on the go, requiring a lot of movement, activity, stimulation, and responsibilities. Yin Yoga offers the chance to be still, be present, and work within while you breathe and stretch deeply and create more space in mind and body.

The Yin practice will be followed with a gentle sound bath to close the session.
You will be immersed in the beautiful sounds and vibrations of Tibetan singing bowls and The Chinese Wind Gong which are nurturing and healing to mind body and spirit. Sound bath meditations are a great way to unplug from the fast activity that can often be the reality of life and shift to a slower pace slowing down the brainwaves by shifting from a more active (beta) state to a more relaxed dreamlike (alpha) state.

What is Yin Yoga?
Yin Yoga targets the deep connective tissues, bones, joints, fascia and ligaments in the body. The more we work our fascial system and deep tissues, the less dense and tight our bodies become as we age.

The practice is mainly floor based postures and can be supported with straps, block, bolsters and blankets. Lengthening extremely tight tissues can be a very uncomfortable practice, but using this time to focus on breathing is a large part of Yin Yoga.

When we experience pain or discomfort, our bodies naturally become tense and we use our fight or flight response. Yin Yoga teaches us to reroute the mind and slow the heart rate when we experience discomfort.

Why practice Yin Yoga?
As we age, our bones begin to degenerate, we lose mobility in our joints and our fascia tightens. But a consistent Yin Yoga practice helps to regain mobility and ease pain in the body. Yin Yoga is an excellent counter to the more physically demanding – or yang – yoga disciplines. This deep stretching is the perfect follow-up to intense yoga or other physical activity so you can stay balanced, flexible, and avoid injury.

Key benefits of a regular Yin Yoga practice:

  • Targets connective tissues including fascia, bones and joints

  • Reduces stress

  • Increases circulation

  • Balances internal organs and improves flow of energy

  • Balances our yang or physical yoga practice

  • Relieves tension

  • Improves flexibility

  • Encourages mindfulness and meditation


What will I experience during Yin Yoga?

During a Yin Yoga class, it is common to experience different emotions such as: anxiety, fear, happiness, sadness or boredom. As humans, we are emotional beings, and much of the emotion from our experiences is stored within the body. These emotions can become pain or blockages like knots in our shoulders, tight hips, sore necks or internal pains. It is important to release the stored anger, sadness, anxiety and fear to keep the body pain-free, healthy and balanced.

Yin Yoga encourages you to become aware of these stored emotions so you can begin to recognize them and release them. You can expect slow, deep stretches and meditation in a Yin Yoga class that balances and strengthens the body, mind and spirit.

Yoga is about finding balance and feeling whole. If you don’t have a Yin Yoga practice or have never tried it, then give it a go. You will be pleasantly surprised by the growth in your yang and meditation practice.

£25 for the session
