A Yoga Movement and Sound Experience for Women
with Naz and Haripyari
Sunday 7th December
1.30pm – 4.30pm
Join us for a nourishing winter practice to honour our feminine power – Shakti as the hearth of our hearts. In our circle of women Naz and Haripyari will share nurturing yogic practices including Yoga Nidra (profound relaxation), Asana (stretches), Mantra (healing sound) and Mudra (hand gestures) to awaken and enrich the connection between our womb space, the seat of creativity and home of the inner goddess; and the heart, the seat of love and compassion. The more time we spend in this union; the more alignment that occurs through the body and the breath; the more we tune in to perceive this deep powerful universal energy. As we rest in our natural beauty we are able to see life from a fresh, new perspective, beyond the limitations of the mind. Our heart begins to open, creativity begins to flow and we feel our own sacred intuition guiding us.
Sunday 7th December
5.30pm – 7.30pm
Kirtan is the yogic practice of singing from the heart. Dropping down out of our busy minds, we settle our focus in the heart centre, where, in all of us there is love, compassion and beauty; and we use our voices to express that love.
Together we will sing simple Sanskrit Mantras (chants in a powerful ancient language), that have a profoundly healing effect on our subconscious and our energetic system. You can join in singing, dancing, clapping or simply basking in the sound. Kirtan is fun, it feels good, and brings one into a place of peace, wellbeing and blissful joy.
Haripyari will be leading the chants on the harmonium accompanied by a drummer and percussionist.
Book both or one of the above online.

HariPyari (Naomi Francis) began her journey of chanting through attending various Kirtans in London and on her travels. She then spent New Year 2009 with the divinely wondrous Jai Uttal on his Kirtan Camp and then went on to do a Yoga Teacher Training in Mexico at the Yandara Yoga Institute, where an incredible resident kirtan band (Jaya) made chanting a key element. Since then HariPyari has been running regular and one-off chanting circles (alone and with other devotional musicians) in the UK, and released a kirtan CD: I Am in February 2012.
