Sound Mind ---- Sound Body
With Sarena Mason Cert. Ed CCMHP and Steph Hiller BA(Hons)
Perfect for beginners - with the added, luscious bonus of a deeply relaxing Sound Bath!
Your voice is the original healing tool...no singing ability required...just an open mind, an open heart and a desire for loving self-care.
I've been studying and teaching healing chant and mantra for 20 years - it is a Joy! A BWY (British Wheel of Yoga) workshop - open to all.
In this day and age, when we are frequently bombarded by the harsh sounds of modern life, it is vital to offset that by regularly immersing ourselves in sounds of a healing, replenishing nature. This allows our mind, body and spirit to return to their natural state of balance and harmony.
Music, sound and voice have been used for health, healing and spiritual connection since time immemorial. As waves of healing sound resonate through every cell of our bodies, we assimilate their vibration on every level of our being, receiving a sonic massage. Healing mantra combines both a "sonic vibration” and transmits divine energy through the sacred sounds.
The effects of healing sound and mantra are wide ranging; from reducing pain, detoxifying the body, and increasing energy and mental alertness, to normalising blood pressure, soothing our nervous system, and psychologically supporting our mental health, increasing our sense of inner security and confidence.
Using sound and mantra as healing modalities can be hugely beneficial within the context of a yoga class, or indeed for self-care at home.
What to expect from the day: We will be exploring sound and mantra for your own self-development and healing, and for use with your yoga students.
The morning will comprise a session of healing mantra, followed (after a tea break) by a hands on exploration into the uses of Himalayan singing bowls for healing and relaxation.
After lunch, there will be a further session on mantra with mudra (hand gestures or seals), before ending the day with a deeply relaxing and healing Sound Bath experience.
