Full Moon Gong Meditation Workshop

Gong

Saturday 6th December 2014 3pm - 5pm £25 BOOK NOW

Let the epic sound of the gong ease you into the festive period by sending the body into a deep state of meditation. Lying in savasana, the reverberating tones of the gong bathe the body in rich sound waves.

The rhythm of the breath and the rhythmic sounds of the gong are used to take you on a journey to deeper states of consciousness. Gentle yoga postures at the start of the meditation and calming breathing techniques heighten the affect from the mighty sounds of the gong. It is a blissful way to deal with stress and fatigue and is a profoundly relaxing experience that will leave you feeling rejuvenated and energised.

Gong player Claire Barron is devoted to yoga, and has been practising meditation for more than 20 years. Claire studied the Gong with renowned Gong Master Don Conreaux. Her workshop will leave you feeling calm, balanced and energised.

Get the stress monkey off your back

National Stress Awareness Day

Wednesday is National Stress Awareness Day, there are TWO ways to approach it.

Carry on as you are and accept stress as part of modern life OR commit to achievable steps to change.

3 easy things you can do at your desk whenever you feel overwhelmed:

Breathe deeply, taking a deep breath lowers cortisone levels- the stress hormone - and temporarily lowers blood pressure.

Spritz natural lavender room spray around your desk and close eyes and take a slow breath in before you sigh your breath out. Lavender is consistently shown to reduce stress levels and sprayed on your pillow is a calming way o get to sleep.

Meditate for 1 minute: Sit up on your sit bones, close your eyes and imagine your head is as light as a helium balloon.

On an exhale, imagine a circle of light travelling down from the crown of your head all the way down to your feet, take your time and as many breaths as you need, pausing the circle of light when you need to take an inhale and carrying on the downward journey on every exhale.

As the circle of light travels down your body parts imagine totally releasing tension. When you reach your toes slowly open your eyes and notice how much calmer you feel.
