Slowness, Stillness and a Sound Bath.
A Yoga workshop with Lucy Howlett
With Lucy Howlett
Date: Sunday 14th January 2018: 2:30pm – 5pm
This yoga workshop at The Float Spa in Hove, will be deliciously slow, meditative, healing, and restful. We will begin with a Sound Bath* with Sound Therapist Ruth Summers.
When a New Year begins, it can be easy to feel like we ‘should’ hit the ground running; to kick start this, that and the other or stop/reduce the things that no longer serve us. This is fantastic of course, but sometimes we can forget to stop, pause and check in with ourselves and how we feel in the process.
Lucy aims to encourage you to maintain a sense of ‘no rush’ about your life, your yoga practice, your goals even. You will be warmly welcomed in to lie down for a Sound Bath to start. After a short break, we will begin some gentle yoga to open up, reduce stiffness and move with deep awareness and honour for the body that we have.
Having experienced anxiety, Lucy has long found the need to practice yoga and/or meditation regularly to help reduce stress and retain strength for life’s challenges. She is passionate about how yoga can be a powerful tool for self-care and wishes to share this with you.
*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/spiritually. Brainwaves can lower to that similar to meditation or to that just before you fall asleep. The sound can induce a state of relaxation and allow you to rest there, allowing cortisone, the stress hormone to reduce, blood pressure and heart rate to lower, potassium/sodium levels in the body can rebalance and cellular regeneration can take place and our autonomic nervous system to restore.
