Tutor: Dawn Wesselby and David Mitchell
Date: 19th November 2022
Time: 10:00 - 15:00
David will explain the history, hand making and use of singing bowls from the Himalayan tradition presenting how to source, play and use the sound for relaxation, meditation and therapy.
Singing bowls entered David's life in 2016 while on a yoga retreat in Nepal, and met the producer of the bowls, Santa Rakya Shakya at his workshop in Kathmandu. Santa has since become an inspiration and friend, and David now imports the bowls, and shares his experience of studying and training with Santa and using the bowls as Sound Therapy.
Dawn will lead a gentle practice to prepare our bodies for a deeply healing sound bath. We will look at gentle stretches to remove tension and open the body and reflective practices that bring us into our centre and quietude. The session will be accessible to all with modifications offered if required.
Dawn has been teaching Hatha Yoga since 2000 and Kundalini Yoga since 2010. She believes the true power of yoga is not in performing asana, but in being present in the body and in observing the fluctuations of the mind and how yoga affects your mental state and energy levels.
She trained with the BWY and is also a Diploma Course Tutor and currently Foundation Course Officer. To satisfy her thirst for learning, she has also undertaken additional training in Yoga philosophy, pranayama, yoga nidra, yoga for mental health, meditation and restorative yoga. She is also a children's yoga teacher and a Yoga In Healthcare Alliance teacher. She draws on her many years of experience and slightly wicked sense of humour to create fun and inclusive classes and workshops.
