Schedule of the Day:

 

9.30am Arrive and Refreshments

 

10.00am Vocal Yoga Workshop - gently wake up and energise your body with simple sounds and movement for fun, happiness and vocal development too.

 

This workshop is based on the Heather Lyle Vocal Yoga Method which is popular in LA where it was founded. Marianne is a certified Vocal Yoga teacher and voice coach. Vocal yoga is a fun and rewarding way of releasing your body into gentle yoga poses with easy sounds that help to get a deeper access to the mind and body connection. It leaves you with a freer more versatile voice and a better yoga practice. The light hearted style gets you feeling warm and happy, a great way to start the day.

 

12.00pm Yoga Nidra - relax, let go and transform yourself by de-cluttering the mind and focussing on what matters to you.

 

Yoga nidra is a guided meditation to promote deep relaxation. It is also referred to as ‘yogic sleep’ as your consciousness drifts from awareness to subconscious semi sleep state. During the session you lay still in comfort and follow the voice of the instructor as they take your mind’s focus to parts of the body. This in-depth visualisation focusses the mind in the moment with the body for complete serenity. Yoga nidra can be transformational as you set a resolution or ‘sankalpa’ which sets the goal or statement deep in the subconscious mind to make a positive suggestion for change. You come away with a blissful feeling of release and positivity.

 

12.30pm Lunch - nourish your body with delicious vegan food.

 

1.30pm Humming and Chanting - balance body with healing vibrations and allow creative expression through your voice.

 

This soothing session is all about the healing sounds of the human voice. According to “The Humming Effect” by Jonathan Goldman, Andi Goldman and John Beaulieu; “Research has shown humming to be much more than a self-soothing sound: it affects us on a physical level, reducing stress, inducing calmness, and enhancing sleep as well as lowering heart rate and blood pressure and producing powerful neurochemicals such as oxytocin, the “love” hormone.” We will hum and chant together with sounds overlapping and intoned to make natural harmonies. A truly magical experience.

 

 

2.00pm Yogdance - let go of tension and dance.

 

3.00pm Tea break, Talk or Walk - as we take a break to refresh listen to some inspirational stories or take a walk in the lovely grounds.

 

4.00pm Gong Bath - rebalance the body and heal the mind immersed in the soothing vibrations of the gongs.

 

Every Gong Bath is a unique experience, a time just for you, an opportunity to just be. While lying on the floor, wrapped safely in a blanket, head resting comfortably on a pillow, the body begins to relax and the mind slips into a deep stillness. The sounds created by the Gong wash over you, enveloping you, creating vibrational ripples. Calming, soothing, vibrational sound. Slowing the heart rate, lowering blood pressure, steadying the breath…When bathed in sound, the body naturally relaxes and begins to rebalance. A well played gong will resonate with all parts of a persons being - mental, physical and spiritual. Raising the lower frequencies to their higher optimum level resulting in harmony and healing. 

5.00pm Meditation - consolidate the peace of mind and body bliss of the day.

 

The day closes with a sublime mantra meditation to seal peace and harmony to enable love and gratitude to be spread to everyone we meet.
