Join yoga teacher Faye and sound healer Aiste for an evening of a candlelit Yoga Sound Bath. A workshop dedicated to exploring the mind and body through the magical connection of therapeutic yoga and sound frequencies.
In life as well as our yoga practice, we balance with yin and yang aspects. Like two sides of one coin, yin cannot exist without yang, nor yang without yin; they complement and balance each other.
Yin is passive, allowing and nourishing. Yang active, vibrant and energising.
On arrival we will each find our chosen mat and accompanying treats and settle down for the evening. We will start the first half of the workshop with the Yang yoga, an active but slow flow practice focusing on movements working with the breath and poses that warm the body. Expect sun salutations, standing and balancing poses.
For the second half of the evening, Aiste will be facilitating a beautiful Sound Bath, creating sacred soundscapes to guide you through Yin Yoga poses and help to enhance our own natural rhythms and cycles. She will play gongs, singing bowls and other instruments as you lay on the mats and hold Yin poses to open a more supple and relaxed body. After the magic of yin, we will delve into an extra long Savasana (resting pose), where we will truly explore the listening body, weaving any missing balance and harmony back into the mind and body.
Finally, the purpose of the physical practice we know as Asana, is to prepare us for sitting comfortably for deeper practices of meditation. After Savasana, we will rise and sit for a short seated meditation, as Aiste closes off the evening with bells and wind chimes.

Her classes are about showing students their inner radiance and potential to releasing a wilder energy.

Faye is sharing passion by helping others find balance, stay calm and feel grounded in hectic modern life.
Unpretentious and genuine, expect laughs & bliss in these light-hearted classes, where she helps students find the internal and external balance of sweetness and intensity, to let go and create more space in the body and mind.
About Aiste Venskune
Aiste is a psychologist, Reiki master and coach who delivers workshops and lectures in mindfulness, teamwork, emotion, stress and conflict management. She leads Reiki and sound healing events, and teaches meditation techniques and breathing exercises.
Blending together sounds of gongs, singing bowls, kalimba, koshi bells and other instruments, her transformative sounds send the mind and body to realms of deep restoration.
As the brain moves in Alpha and/or Theta states, the sounds will trigger a sympathetic nervous system response that lowers blood pressure, slows the heart rate and relieve stress. Sound baths are a unique experience, as guests lay down on mats we let the vibrations of instruments saturate into our body energetically, emotionally and physically.
This event is open to all levels. Spots are limited so make sure to book early.
