spring equinox yin yang yoga & gong bath

rebirth & renewal

spring equinox yin yang yoga workshop with gong bath

with Samantha Rogers & Patricia Carlotta

Spring Equinox is a pivotal point that heralds longer, warmer, brighter days ahead. It represents a reemergence, a slow but gentle awakening from the previous months’ slumber. We see this emergence all around and take this opportunity to retune, reflect and refine our goals and intentions, or simply be. We attempt to smoothly transition from the old, inner (Winter) to the new, outer (Spring), by capturing and welcoming this injection of energy and directing it to whichever part of our lives we wish. It is a time to gently wake up as our energy begins to shift more towards the outside world and to enable and encourage ideas, creativity, aspirations to bud into fruition.

During the three hours we will luxuriate, enjoy and expand in a nourishing practice that includes:

  • an opening meditation - seeding our intentions within our subconscious;
  • yang - dynamic yoga part - hip opening themed sequence to herald a sense of creativity, softness and renewal;
  • yin yoga – hip openers to stimulate the sacral chakra;
  • yoga nidra - deep, reclining guided meditation;
  • gong bath.

  • Samantha Rogers - yoga teacher

    On the one hand her style is designed and tailored to focus on core strength, stability and tone and on the other she places significant focus on the chakras during sequence and thus neatly bridging the gap between the physical and energetic, creating a well rounded practice.

  • Patricia Carlota

    Patricia Carlota is passionate about the sound of the gong and related sound tools. She specialises in the use of high quality gongs and has studied with Sheila Whitaker at The College of Sound Healing, Don Conreaux, Tone of Life, and Mehatab Brenton.

  • an opening meditation

    seeding our intentions within our subconscious and aligning these with our higher path, dreams and aspirations. This also calls for quiet reflection & solitude. The resolve made at the beginning of the practice is like sowing a seed.

  • Yang yoga

    Hip opening themed sequence to herald a sense of creativity, softness and renewal – these are the Spring Equinox and Sacral Chakra qualities which we will encourage. Element of sacral chakra is water and so this sequence will be gentle, flowy and encourage freedom of expression.

  • yin yoga

    Hip openers to stimulate the Sacral Chakra will be continued as will deep twists through which access the Liver Meridian line, the organ of detoxification. On an energetic level twists represents letting go, squeezing out of that which no longer serves, purification and deep inner cleansing.

  • yoga nidra

    Deep, reclining guided meditation. Yoga Nidra is the most efficient and effective form of deep rest and can melt tension on a three fold level – emotional, physical and mental. Sankalpa impressed upon the subconscious mind in this state, can become a powerful tool for reshaping the mind.

  • gong bath

    In a gong bath the body is literally 'bathed in sound', promoting a deep sense of well being and inner peace. The sound of the gong has the effect of timelessness – and of de-materialisation. Perfect bliss...
