Integrating diverse influences, this unique sound bath meditation is a beautiful cross-cultural and cross-dimensional musical journey for meditation, healing and personal exploration of the secret, the sacred and the unknown. Involving Tibetan singing bowls, bells, shakers, African harp, voice and more. It is a group session held in a form of ceremonial sound gathering.
Therapeutically, the session is especially recommended for releasing stress, trauma, grief, depression and associated physical ailments through deep physical relaxation, emotional rebalancing, spiritual discovering and revival.
It is an hour long, lying down meditation held in a beautiful sonic atmosphere.
The specialist singing bowls used in the session were designed and developed by the Peter Hess Institute, specifically as healing tools. Each bowl is precisely tuned to vibrate at the exact frequency corresponding to the natural frequency of a healthy bodily organ. Through resonance, this literally tunes, harmonises and restores the body’s natural, healthy state of being. This meditative treatment makes each cell of our body vibrate and the whole system remember, how to be well! It gives the mind and the spirit opportunity to travel to find healing, wisdom, answers, bliss, connection, beauty and to meet our higher self.
Agata is an experienced holistic therapist and qualified doula who also has a lifelong passion and love for music.

Yin Yoga is a slow and meditative practice where postures are held for little longer so that we can work deeper into the areas of the body that may need more attention – the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Poses are mostly floor based and held between 3 – 5 minutes. Practicing in this mindful way cultivates the atmosphere to turn inwards and is great preparation for meditation. Yin Yoga is a lovely practice on its own, or to compliment and supplement those who also practice more dynamic styles of yoga.
After 8 years of practicing yoga, Ella completed a British Wheel of Yoga Diploma through YogaCampus. Her training has taught her to teach from the heart with an awareness and respect for individuals’ differing needs. She is mostly influenced by the foundations of Iyengar’s teachings and is inspired by teachers such as Judith Lasater and Donna Farhi. This is reflected in her teaching which draws on Hatha Yoga style with an emphasis on breath and posture alignment to focus the mind and body.
