WINTER ❄ SOLSTICE
With Love and Light, Sunny Devi Yoga & Jagannatha Das are offering an uplifting evening’s celebration of 108 Sun Salutations.
This celebration is a beautiful opportunity to welcoming the divine light into our heart and mind. With Joy, Sunny will peacefully guide you through the the 108 Sun Salutations. The mind and body will be moved to a higher consciousness through the magical mantra sounds led by Musician and Kirtan singer Jagannatha Das.
To close the evening’s celebration Lara from Lara’s Tarts & Friands will be serving her most famous and deliciously baked vegan mince pies.
This Winter Solstice is a reminder to honour our connection with the natural world. We will honour the darkness and welcoming the Divine Light into our hearts and life.
In winter everything lies dormant in the silent earth, it is a sacred time of rest and reflection before the awakening and the slow build toward brighter days.
It brings a great stillness and has the energy of going within. It can be a time to rest and reflect.
This time of change will give permission to slow down and give rise to an opportunity to reconnect with the fluidity of life which is so important to our health and wellbeing, it will bring back balance and joyful energy.
The winter solstice is the moment in the year when Earth is tilted as far away from the sun as it will be all year and therefore the shortest day of the year, meaning it has the longest period of darkness.
Winter Solstice celebrates the day of the sun’s rebirth allowing the days become longer and symbolises the energy of fire and light, along with life, death, the rising sun, and the moon.
For this day let yourself rest in the peace of darkness, knowing the changing of the season, and the return of brighter days is ahead, be reminded you are always connected to nature and your inner light never dims.

Sound Healing with Breath and Crystal Singing Bowls
Start your New Year Journey on this three-day (15 hour) certification workshop with Tina Pashumati James in January 2024.
An open invitation to all; Welcoming students who are seeking a qualification for teaching as well as students who are on their own personal journey of healing and who are not wishing to teach at the end of this course work.
Tina is a highly respected and world-renowned teacher who will be teaching and sharing her extensive knowledge and immense wisdom in how to find and create a peaceful and healthy balance through sound healing in a natural way and to grow spiritually from within.
You will participate and learn in sound healing meditations with crystal singing bowls and how sound healing can work with your energy centers to improve and heal your mind and body deeply and holistically. This will calm your mind, unlock your body's chakras and release hidden energies! It is a natural medicine through sound baths to create space of inner healing for the whole wellbeing.
Crystal singing bowls are ancient Eastern medicine. While modern medicine can cure specific health issues, crystal singing bowl therapy is a more holistic healing approach. Crystals have inherent healing properties which combined with tuned sounds work to amplify the healing benefits. Each bowl emits a powerful, healing resonant sound. These bowls are much more reverberating with the tone lasting longer, simply because of the size specific tuning and amount of pure crystal.

“It's a cry and a Ceremony of pure Love. That's what music, sound, vibration should do. It should spark energy in someone. We have to live at a higher vibration, caring for all beings and our beautiful Blue Planet. It is the Life Force of Mother Earth.”

Introduction to Ashtanga Yoga
This workshop is open to Teachers and students who would like to learn the Foundation Practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Vinyasa Yoga emphasises the linking of movement and breath (Vinyasa), Ujjayi breathing (Breath of Life) and Bandhas (energy locks).
In Sanskrit, Ashtanga means eight-limbed (Asta - eight,Anga - limb). Ashtanga Yoga is the union of the eight-limbed path towards achieving the state of Yoga, into one complete, holistic system, also known as Samadhi.
Learning to practice from the inside out is how we start to change our perception in a far more beneficial way for ourselves.
“Do your practice and all is coming.”
