Your Yoga & Sacred Sound Journey:
> Join Honor for a 90 min yoga practice to bring warmth and a sense of grounding. Learn simple yogic tools you can use yourself to reduce stress and anxiety and keep the energy flowing during the cold months. In yoga we work with the elements and we will look at what Asanas (yoga postures) channel a warming energy. We will also touch on appropriate diet for the season.
After yoga we'll have a 15 min break for ayurvedic tea, raw chocolates and a chat.
> Gayatri and Honor will be taking you on a candlelit journey into sound using their voices and instruments including Nepalese Gong, Tibetan singing bowls, Tuning forks, Harp, Flute and many more. For this part you simply lie down, relax and receive. Sound is a powerful way to enter our creative source and to change our vibration, many people experience being bathed in sound as very healing.
Looking forward to transporting you on this healing journey
Love Honor & Gayatri
More about Honor & Gayatri
Honor began yoga in secondary school. She’s the daughter of Prem Rawat devotees so grew up immersed in a yogic world view. Honor completed her British Wheel of Yoga teacher training in 2006 and qualified as an Iyengar teacher nine years ago and is now working on her Senior certification. She’s been teaching busy classes and one to ones in London with enthusiasm and commitment. The highlight of her yoga journeying has been her work studying with teachers and devoted practitioners in India, especially BKS Iyengar and his daughter Geeta Iyengar and son Prashant Iyengar in Pune on a number of intensives.
Honor has taught in Thailand, Australia and India – as well as at La Cesa in Tuscany. Honor has been chanting mantras since she began yoga – always loving the chant to Patanjali. She started drumming lessons two years ago, bought singing bowls in India, and since meeting Gayatri making sound has been an integral part of her practice. Her teaching is inclusive, dynamic, deeply inventive and totally focussed on where yoga is leading us.
Gayatri uses a combination of Sanskrit Chants, Rainbow Songs, Voicework and Sound Healing in her work.
Gayatri teaches sound and movement explorations to encourage people to tap into their creativity and go into their heart space. Even those who thought they’d never sing or chant find themselves responding to Gayatri’s circle, losing their inhibitions and making sound spontaneously and joyfully.
Gayatri has been studying the practice of Voicework and Chanting since 2006, her primary teachers being Stewart Pearce, Nikki Slade and Chloe Goodchild. In the summer 2015 she attended a Sound Healing course with Tim Wheater and Cherubelle Sanson. Later in the year, she studied with Sanj Hall, in playing gongs and learning more techniques with singing bowls. In 2016 she trained with Ashera in Solfeggio Tuning Fork therapy.
