Friday 31 Mar | 7.30pm to 8.45pm | £20
Join sound therapist Chai Francesco for a very special and very blissful evening of relaxation as you bathe in the sublimely healing tones of crystal singing bowls and the oriental gong. The resonance of these instruments is tangible, making it not just an auditory experience but also like receiving a sound massage!
Throughout the ages, sound has been used to heal, strengthen and soothe. During a sound bath, most people experience a wonderful feeling of relaxation, and you can expect to leave the session feeling balanced, restored and ready to enjoy the weekend ahead.

A Gong Bath is a form of Sound Healing where the Gong and other related instruments are played to induce wellbeing. Participants are invited to lie down comfortably on a yoga mat, close their eyes, relax and be cocooned in a sonic immersion. The practice provides a space to re-generate, re-nourish, and re-set your whole being – mind, body, emotions, soul, and energy field
Please wear loose comfortable clothing as well as extra layers to ensure you will be warm enough (e.g. socks, an extra top). There are bolsters, blankets and eye pillows at the studio but please feel free to bring any extra items along for your own comfort (e.g. a cushion or pillow). As a large proportion of this workshop involves lying down, the body temperature can drop and your comfort is of the utmost importance.
Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra & Gong Bath Workshop
Saturday 6 May | 6.45pm to 8.45pm | £30
Yin Yoga is a deep, meditative practice that activates the parasympathetic nervous system. Physically the focus is on moving deeper into the connective tissues of the body in areas such as the hips and spine and typically involves holding poses for three to five minutes. This will prepare the body for a calming Yoga Nidra (‘yogic sleep’) practice – a guided meditation that will bring you to the edge of sleep, quietening the mind, reducing tension and promoting deep relaxation – ready for a blissful Gong Bath.
Please note – This workshop is not recommended to pregnant students. Contact the studio if you:
- Suffer from a sound sensitive condition, epilepsy or are undergoing a major treatment
- Have a pacemaker
- Have any particular need and are not sure if the sessions are suitable for you.
