Expect a warm welcome to the monthly New Moon Stretch & Sound Bath Meditation event. A monthly reset to calm your body and relax your mind. Joe will guide you through a combination of slow, mindful, (yin style) floor-based SATYA somatic stretches and calm breathing practices that prepare you for the bespoke themed sound bath. Each month the element of the star sign will influence the way the sounds are played intuitively by Joe. Refreshments and equipment is provided, all are welcome just come with an open mind and heart.
As the singing bowls, frame drum, percussion instruments, voice and the gongs are played the different harmonics can slow down the brain wave state inducing a deep state of rest, a process is called entrainment.
The sounds created are ‘neutral’ and they respond to our bodies and any holding that we may have be that physical, mental, emotional, energetic or spiritual. Everyone is different and your experience is unique to you. As the body rests and mind finds stillness some may experience an altered state of consciousness akin to a deep meditative state.
Each month Joe adapts her sound bath to the elemental influence of the New Moons; astrological sign adapting the rhythm and instruments played e.g. fire, air, water and earth. During the sound bath you might like to sit but most people prefer to lie on the floor in a supported rest position. All yoga equipment will be provided however if you prefer your own blanket and eye mask bring them along and a closed-top drinking cup. Wear warm layers as during relaxation the body can cool down.
Once the sounds have ended you’ll be invited to sit, have some chocolate, select an oracle card and then head downstairs for a warm drink to prepare you for the journey home. Afterwards you might find the sonic massage will leave you feeling relaxed, energised, or more reset; and it’s never the same!
The New Moon is a great time for sowing the seeds of your intention as you work with the energy of the month’s astrological sign. If you’ve never worked with the lunar cycles Joe invites you to give it a try! Join for the year and SAVE 10% off the monthly price and a pre-booked ticket. Contact Joe to arrange this option.
