Yoga Bodywork & Sound
Yoga defines a state of being, and whilst we do not wish to prescribe yoga as a way of life, it addresses and encapsulates so much more than just movement and the physical realm. The ideal state would actually mean there is no need for ‘yoga’. We would be what yoga aspires for; homeostasis. To feel as fluid and compatible as possible, to oscillate gently emotionally, chemically and spiritually, and to be accepting of those oscillations.
The breath and body are brilliant ‘presence’ tools. With moments of stillness and introspection you can connect to your physicality and understand how you feel in response to certain movements and situations. Practising self-awareness, introspection within the context of yoga will enhance and enable you to use these skills in other areas of life. Just like practising anything.
What a typical class may include:
breath, movement, voice, challenge, stillness, introspection and music.
Private Yoga is suitable for those who are new to yoga and for those already familiar with the art. Private sessions may help you to:
- Connect to your unique body, mind and breath patterns
- Set up a personalised home yoga practice if you’re not quite ready for, or don’t have time to join a class
- Decide what class level to join, based on your previous yoga experience and current physical condition
- Develop and deepen your practice further – whatever that means for you
Though a Sound Bath may seem like a new age concept, the practice of healing bodies through sound is technically thousands of years old with deep roots in cultures across the world. This spiritual, cleansing music varies according to place and culture, but it can be as simple as chanting an om following your yoga session or as complex as an hour-long experience in a dedicated space with a sound practitioner.
In general, a sound bath is a meditative experience where those present are bathed in sound waves. These waves are produced by various sources, such as gongs, singing bowls, rattles and even the human voice.

Often overlooked in bodywork sessions, our visceral (‘internal’) organs play an essential part in our holistic wellbeing, contributing towards our mental and emotional states, and playing key roles in certain diseases.
