About The Event

Sound + Silence

At Yoga Kula we understand the healing power of both SOUND and SILENCE. We wanted to share the benefits of both as we move closer to Christmas and into a New Year in order to find some peace, space and presence.

Arch Barn is a beautiful studio set in the grounds of the Harewood Estate where you will receive a warm welcome allowing you to deeply relax into this afternoon into evening retreat.

We invite you to arrive at the Harewood Estate an hour or so before the start time of the afternoon into evening retreat and enjoy one of the many walks available to the public (a map will be supplied at the time of booking). Perhaps walk in silence and feel the sensations underfoot or invite friend along to the retreat who you haven’t connected with in a while and create some new memories.

Join us as we BATHE you in both healing SOUND + healing SILENCE.

About Healing Sound:

SOUND healing helps ‘retune’ the body and mind. Enjoy a restful and supported savasana (lying down pose) as you are bathed in SOUND from an array of healing instruments. SOUND healing can help to clear the mind, bring us into the present moment, reduce stress and improve sleep.

About Healing Silence:

SILENCE is deeply healing, helping bring about calmness to the mind, opening up space for clarity and helpful ‘downloads’ whilst encouraging mindfulness. Silent Yin Yoga helps to bring together the deeply healing benefits of Yin Yoga and the power of SILENCE. Historically silence has been used to bring about a deeply meditative state.

About Yin Yoga:

Yin Yoga is a relaxing, mainly floor based style of yoga where we relax into the postures to focus on opening the joints and working into tightness. The sensations can be medium to strong so be encouraged to find the right depth for you and work with props if needed (your teacher will be on hand to guide you with prop usage). It is always encouraged to breathe deeply through the poses. As this is a silent class the teacher will use a singing bowl to indicate as the posture changes and give clear demonstrations which you can easily follow. Gongs and singing bowls are often used in Silent Ashrams to indicate when one activity finishes and anther begins. These healing instruments provides a gentle signal which ensures we stay in a meditative mode at all times.

12.45 - Arrive and Take a Walk within the Estate (optional)

1.45 - Arrive and Settle at Arch Barn

2.00 - 3.30 - Sound Bath

Be bathed in SOUND by sound expert Christian while being fully supported by comfortable yoga props. During the session a range of healing instruments will be used to retune the body and mind and prepare us for the Silent section of the retreat.

3.30 - 4.10 - Mulled Wine + Vegan Christmas Cake

4.15 - 6.00 - Silent Yin, Smudging + Meditation

Be guided through a carefully crafted Yin Yoga Sequence in Silence by Yoga Kula Teachers Angela + Binny. As poses are held enjoy individual smudging using Sage and Palo Santo to remove negative energy and Selenite and Singing Bowls to recharge with positive energy. Individual neck, shoulder and head massages will be offered in Savasana using essential oils allowing a deeper drop into relaxation and a shedding of any final tension.

The Retreat will be closed with an inspirational Quote for you to contemplate for a few moments while remaining in a pose of meditation.

Expect to feel relaxed yet energised as you experience the benefits of SOUND + SILENCE.
