Gong Bath for Relaxation & New Vision with Amanda Denton
£25 for 90 mins
Winter is the time of year for hibernation and rest – the “doing” is the “not doing”, it’s the time of year to be still and quiet, allowing ourselves to compost our old ideas and use the energy to give birth to new ideas and visions. Through the transformational sound of the gong, the relaxation of Yoga Nidra and the surrender of Yin yoga Amanda will take you on a journey of deep release, making space for new beginnings.
The long term benefits of being exposed to sound of the gong are manifold – from promoting good sleep, and breaking up of emotional blockages, to stress reduction and more. During this workshop, the powerful healing benefits of the gong will be combined with Yin yoga, a quiet, slow and meditative practice, with a focus on the hips, pelvis and lower spine, all supported by the earth using props and variations to allow the body to open up and the mind to still. The workshop will end with Yoga Nidra, a guided meditation that brings you into a state of conscious sleep. It unwinds the nervous system and induces complete physical and mental relaxation with inner awareness.
Amanda has been a senior registered yoga teacher since 2013 and has trained in multiple yogic disciplines (Sivananda, Yogasana, Yin and more) as well as massage and aromatherapy. Amanda has a passion for the amazing, healing benefits of Gong Bath and Sound Therapy and has trained extensively in this field with renowned Gong Master, Leo Cosendai.
