Sunday August 12th 3-5.30pm, Setting Intentions through Yoga and Sound Therapy at The Float Spa, Hove
SANKALPA is Sanskrit for an intention formed by the heart and mind — a solemn vow, determination, or will.
It can be helpful to set intentions every few months, not just at the beginning of a New Year. That may be through creating your own vision board, having a mantra that you repeat to yourself, or meditating on a theme specific to you, it helps to declare to yourself (and perhaps others) what you wish to aim for in your personal or professional life.
After a brief introduction, we will begin this workshop with a sound bath with the lovely and skilled sound therapist Ruth Summers, to help become more present and relaxed and let go a little of your roles in life and tune into YOU. Following a very brief break, we will continue with a gentle and slow yoga practice, using a chosen Mudra (symbolic hand gesture) to ingrain your Sankalpa, and closing with a meditation whilst you lie in Savasana. (This workshop is very suitable for pregnant yogis or newly postnatal as Lucy is a pre- and postnatal exercise specialist.)
This will be very similar to the ‘Slowness, Stillness and a Sound Bath’ workshops that Lucy and Ruth have led twice this year.
*More on Sound Baths: Allow the beautiful sounds and tones of gongs, Himalayan singing bowls, crystal singing bowls, rainsticks and other therapeutic percussion instruments to wash over you, enhancing overall health of mind and body. Sound is applied therapeutically which helps to relax the system on all levels of being; physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically/
