YOGA BRUNCH

with Yorks

£20

£14 Members

Start your weekend with a nourishing cup of herbal tea, an invigorating yoga class,

followed by coffee and brunch just across the square in Yorks Bakery Cafe at the Ikon Gallery.

The yoga class is lead by Michi is in the style of Mandala Vinyasa Yoga.

Mandala is a geometrical figure representing the Universe, normally starting with a circle inside a square, and Vinyasa can mean linking breath and movement in a conscious manner. The Mandala Vinyasa class is established on the 4 basic elements to bring connection between you and each of the Elements in the Universe – Earth, Water, Fire and Air – and with their corresponding Chakra.

On the mat during Mandala Vinyasa, we will be integrating the spiral patterns of nature, as there is never perfection nor straight lines in nature, and exploring circular movements with our prana, the life energy.

Allow yourself to move beyond the poses and into the mental and emotional aspects of the practice.

Michela says 'I love teaching this sequence because it allows the students to experience a change in perception, encouraging them to think about other areas of their life where they may need a change in perspective.'

All abilities welcome! New or accustomed to yoga.

GONG MEDITATION

with Tej Ravi Singh

£15

£11 Members

A Gong Meditation or 'Gong Bath' is a form of sound therapy where the Gongs are played in a therapeutic way to bring about total relaxation.

During the Gong Bath, the Gongs and Mallets are used to bring out the full spectrum of beneficial vibrations and frequencies. There can actually be 12 or more sound waves from just one strike of the gong.

Just as a body massage works out tight and knotted muscles, the "sonic massage" of a Gong Bath works out emotional issues that we need to release in order to move forward in life. The listener only has to let go and let the sound of the Gong do the work. The experience is effortless and the results profound.

 

The Gong is not actually classed as a musical instrument, and it is said to be

THE SOUND OF THE UNIVERSE.

During this session we will lie down and get as comfortable as possible to enable us to fully relax into the experience. Yoga mats and blankets will be provided, but please feel free to bring any extra thick blankets, sleeping bags, pillows, eye covers, quilts, whatever you feel you need to be completely restful, comfortable and relaxed.

 

A note from Tej Ravi Singh .

‘I was first drawn to the Gong through meditation, visions, intuition and Kundalini yoga. It took me many months to break through my fears and actually buy one. The Gong is a sacred and ancient instrument of healing, rejuvenation and transformation'.

You will be told the why's of each magical natural ingredient, before being guided on a journey of movement through the elements Earth, Water, Fire, Air & Ether (Space).


Music will support an unravelling & reconnection to our true expression.
 


~ C E R E M O N I E S ~

Ceremonies are a way to gather & honour life, it's transitions, and its ebb & flow as we begin to explore the part we play within this rich tapestry. A powerful tool for the soul to converse with its surroundings & self, bringing you home to your inner rhythm & elemental nature.

 


~ C A C A O ~

Movement supports the cacao to flood our bloodstream & allows our energy & feelings to flow with freedom from within. Its properties are said to open the heart.
When raw, it is one of the most nutrient based foods known to man, containing over 300 chemical compounds. To name a few, it is bursting with vitamin C, iron, magnesium, calcium & hosts an array of

mood enhancing chemicals that release & transmit serotonin, creating a feeling of wellbeing.
Cacao has been used & cultivated since at least 2000BC, used within civilisations in the America's shamanically, ritualistically, as a plant medicine & for nutrition.
