The Winter Solstice arrives at December 21, bringing the shortest day and longest night in the year and ending the reign of Darkness by re-establishing Light. We will celebrate this important astronomical and sacral date with a special workshop: this time we will leave asana-practice behind and delve into Pranayama, meditation, mantra-chanting and the power of healing sounds to enlighten our consciousness and prepare ourselves for the challenges and gifts brought to us by the next solar year. The workshop’s schedule will be the following:
- 8:50-9:00 PM – Arrival and registration (If you want to add asana-practice to this evening, please join one of our scheduled classes before the event)
- 9:00-9:30 PM – Tuning up with candle light, breath-meditation and Pranayama practice
- 9:30-10:30 PM – Sound bath and sound journey with the sounds of Tibetan singing bowls, tingshas, chimes, bells, kalimba and ocean drum
- 10:30 PM -12:00 AM – Meditation and Mantra-sadhana – joint chanting of Sanskrit Mantras strengthening our soul and awakenink our Self, accompained by acoustic instruments. We will be introducing mantra-chanting with an inner meditation journey from Chakra to Chakra, concentrating on the Prana Flow within the spinal channel.
Please arrive in comfortable clothing which allows you to sit on the ground and relax in a supine position. Very tight clothes will not be comfortable. You can also change before the workshop in our locker rooms. Please bring drinking water or buy at the studio. Please bring your favourite meditation cushion for sitting and your instrument for playing along the mantras. We can provide yoga mats and blankets. And most importantly: Please bring Yourself and be Present with all your attention to get the most spiritual benefit out of this special night before Christmas and the end of the year.
