About the event

Join us on a dance discovery as we invite you to unlock the potential within your own body and experience the transformative power of movement and sound.

This workshop fuses together a soundscape to lift the spirit through a dance wave followed by a nourishing sound bath. The event offers an opportunity to embrace uninhibited movement, shed your limiting beliefs around your physical constraints, and immerse yourself in the sheer joy of dance, all while pushing the boundaries of your comfort zone. We will dance our body into the space we inhabit so we can meet any boundaries with more grace and acceptance.

The session will begin with a gentle meditation, guiding you into a deeper awareness of your body and senses. Then, you will be expertly lead through a journey of movement and introspection, skilfully navigating the transitions between stillness and motion. Following the somatic movement, you will lay down comfortably and bathe in the different sounds of the gong, Himalayan singing bowls, Koshi bells, the beautiful tones of the sansula and more. Designed to set you free to drift to wherever the sound takes you, the sound bath can support you in clearing mental, emotional and physical blockages and leaving you with a feeling of clarity and deep relaxation.

Expect leaving the event feeling revived, uplifted, light whilst also relaxed.

The facilitators:

Leading the movement part of the event, Isabell is a trained yoga teacher and somatic dance facilitator. She enjoys creatively guiding people of all abilities through a mindful wave of free movement. Isabell curates all her musical sets herself and prides herself on creating safe spaces to encourage complete freedom of expression.

Veronika has been passionate about sound and music since she was a child. Following 12 years of musical training in piano, she discovered and began to use Tibetan singing bowls, gongs, and other therapeutic instruments to create healing and restorative soundscapes. Veronika studied with various teachers in Nepal and Europe, including gong master Don Conreaux, and has been offering sound therapy sessions and sound baths since 2015.

Who can join?

Everyone is welcome - experienced dancers and those curious to try for the first time. The beauty of this event is that anyone can enjoy it, no experience necessary. (Please see note below about circumstances where gong baths might not be suitable).

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Sound baths are not suitable for anyone with a pacemaker, anyone who suffers from fits (epileptics), or anyone who is extremely sensitive to sound. They are also not recommended for women in the first trimester of pregnancy due to the unstable nature of pregnancy during that time. If you wear a hearing aid, your device should be turned off during the session.

What should I bring?

Please bring your own thick mat (a Pilates mat or camping mat are ideal), blanket, cushion and a jumper to keep warm during the sound bath. An eye mask may also be nice to use.
