As the power of Spring surges through nature, we too feel it's force. Just as nature goes through a cycle of rebirth, renewal and awakening, we rise up from our restful winter habits and tendencies with a renewed sense of energy. This is the time to plant seeds, make plans for the future and ground our visions into reality. For our dreams to blossom, we must be both stable and flexible, like a tree which has roots firmly in Mother Earth yet flexible enough to dance with the flow of the wind.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
An opening meditation will lead us into a place of stillness and calm. We will be guided to each plant a seed, setting an intention of something which we would like to bear the fruit of later in the year.
Carolyn will lead a yin yoga practice to enhance the flow of chi (energy) through the liver and gallbladder meridians - in Chinese medicine this meridian is associated with the season Spring and the element Wood. Healthy liver and gallbladder chi is related to a capacity to make plans and put them into action. In yin we are supported by props or the ground, so that we can release into long holds of up to 5 minutes. During that time Carolyn will share inspiring poem and insights about the benefits of the pose and it's energetic and physiological importance.
Throughout the evening Josie will share the healing sounds of her alchemy crystal singing bowls with the intention to take you into a place of deep surrender.
After the opening yet grounding yin practice, you will be led into relaxation where you can simply lie back to receive the healing sounds, allowing the vibrations to take you on a journey within and beyond. The bowls are made from 99.992% pure crystal quartz and are infused with various precious gemstones and minerals including Platinum which stimulates the Divine Feminine, aligning the intuitive emotional body and Amethyst which supports the expansion of the crown chakra, creating a temple of grace in any setting.
The beautiful frequencies will wash through your entire being as they work through your chakras, organs, energy and cells to shake out any old stagnant emotions and energies which no longer serve you and in turn fill you with pure LIGHT. You can experience a deeper state of consciousness as the sounds enable you to transcend the mind to connect to your own heart wisdom within. A truly nurturing experience which stimulates peace on all levels - physical, emotional, spiritual, mental. It is to be experienced to be truly understood.
CAROLYN is a yoga teacher and ayurvedic yoga massage therapist, based in Tring. She teaches at Tring Yoga Studio and Mind & Body Berkhamsted. Her teaching encourages you to explore how the asana (posture) feels to you, from the inside. This way you have a personal experience of the yoga practice. After all, yoga means union with our true self. Deep healing comes when we tune into our physical body and understand what it needs.
