HEALING SOUND BATH
5:30PM - 5:50PM (Free) BYL regular Toro who’s also the head honcho at Starbucks Canary Wharf, will be leading us through a beautiful 20 minute session featuring the healing sounds of Tibetan bowls, followed by meditation. This is FREE to any attendee on the day.
In this ancient practise originating in the Buddhist tradition, a wooden mallet strikes a water-filled Tibetan copper bowl which in turn vibrates, creating a haunting, deeply soothing sound, radiating a healing energy to help unblock chakras. Participants can experience a deep feeling of peace as subtle, harmonic frequencies pulse through mind and soul, drawing one further into blissful oblivion. You don’t want to miss this! Book Healing Sound Bath
YIN YANG YOGA
6:00PM - 7:15PM Lizzie’s back to lead us on a magical yoga journey combining both Yin and Yang elements in one class, creating a balanced practice with powerful effect to improve your energy levels!
Learn to connect with energy as it moves through your body. You’ll begin with a series of soft deep stretches on the floor, then transition into a more dynamic series of standing postures to get the energy moving through the body. Later, back onto the floor, you’ll work on deep Yin stretches targeting areas below the navel, allowing the body to sink into gentle intensity in each pose to align energy channels. Warm, gentle and satisfying. Book Yin Yang Yoga
