Do you spend a lot of your time sitting at a desk or working on a computer, laptop, ipad or phone?

Do you want to try a gentle class to reduce stress and tension in your life?

Yin Yoga & Gong Bath with Alex Belcourt & Pauline McCann
Saturday 9th December 2-4.30pm. Cost £30
A journey through yoga and sound. Yin Yoga stimulates the connective tissues in the body, untying knots of tension and relieving physical and mental stress. As you sink into a relaxed resting position after the practice the sounds of singing bowls and gongs will gradually build to a myriad of harmonics. The gong has been used for thousands of years to rebalance and tone the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies, relieving stress and fatigue and bring relaxation. The yoga and sound bath will take approximately 2 hours and there will be time for meditation and reflection afterwards.
“The knower of the mystery of sound knows the mystery of the whole universe” ~Hazrat Inayat Khan
