WORKSHOPS & COURSES
Friday 28 December | 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.

With the end of another year fast approaching, many of us are beginning to reflect on the year that was, reviewing our choices, actions and habits and formulating resolutions that we hope ‘will make next year better’…
The problem however is that our New Year’s resolutions often feel like a chore that we try to force ourselves to stick to because we think we should, and the majority of us end up discarding them after just a short time which can sometimes do us more harm than good. Fortunately, yoga offers a refreshing alternative to the New Year’s resolution: the practice of Sankalpa.
Sankalpa can be defined as our heartfelt intention or resolve and is based on the premise that you already are who you need to be to fulfil your life’s aspirations. All you need to do is focus your mind, connect to your most heartfelt desires, and channel the energy within. Led by Sue Rahmani, this workshop will help you plant the seed of your intentions deeply in your subconscious through an inspiring blend of asana, meditation, mantra and mudra.
In keeping with the tradition of Sankalpa, Sue invites you to bring a small item with personal meaning or sentiment to be added to the altar during the workshop.
