Lullaby + Flow

Part conversation and part practice, Lullaby + Flow offers teachers and practitioners insight on how to use sound as a healing tool in their yoga classes in a tender, wise and intuitive way. We will work with the foundations of sound meditation/healing, mantra + chanting, crafting enchanting + non-distracting playlists, and use of healing instruments to find our own unique offering and prescription of sound! We will experience a slow flow practice followed by a crystal bowl sound bath to close.

The Medicine of Mantra

"Mantra has the blossoming of the heart as its central experience." - Muz Murray. Mantra is a profound and practical medicine for self-healing and transformation. In The Medicine of Mantra, we will touch on the origins and purposes behind the practice, and how to put it into action through japa (sound) and ajapa (soundless) mantras, mantra-based meditations, how to incorporate sound into an asana practice and much more. We will conclude our practice with a sound bath and chanting to the sounds of the crystal singing bowls. Please bring a mala if you have one!

BOOK SESSION

The Resonant Body

In one of the earliest Tantrik practices of mantra, we find subtle bij (seed) mantras to restore our connection not to the Chakras, but to the Elemental energies in our bodies and energetic system. This workshop will lead us on a journey to install these sounds onto different places of our body for greater connection to our elemental and natural selves; exploring this through means of Tantrik meditation, visualization, movement and stillness. We close our time together with a crystal singing bowl sound bath and collective chant.
