Deep relaxation is a vital part of looking after our health and wellbeing; it allows our bodies the time to rest and rejuvenate. Sound therapy has been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, and tension, and bring about positive mind-body states. The hypnotic sounds and vibrations from the instruments encourage the brain waves to slow down. This can take us into an altered state, similar to deep meditation, allowing the body to return to homeostasis and into a place where natural healing can take place. Many people report feeling more relaxed, improved sleep and a general feeling of relaxation and rejuvenation. Facilitated by Michael Shutak of Your Time Yoga, and Jan McGuire of Peaceful Body Peaceful Mind; all you have to do is lie down on your yoga mat and allow the instruments to work their magic. Experience Shamanic drums weaving around you, gongs from all directions with their deep and relaxing hums, the pure notes of crystal and Himalayan singing bowls, crystal pyramids and chimes, the relaxing water sounds of rain stick and ocean drum, before being brought round full circle with gentle percussion, shakers and bells. Experience being fully immersed in sound; a real treat. Everyone welcome. Cost; £15 Please bring a yoga mat, pillow and blanket; whatever you need to lie down for an hour, and some water to drink. Some people even bring sleeping bags.
