Our third outing! Come and experience the heart opening warmth of the cacao spirit combined with a nourishing yoga practice whilst bathing in the alchemical sounds of therapeutic instruments.
Yoga Cacao Sound Journey is a fusion of cacao ceremony with asana, pranayama, yin yoga and meditation all the while being amplified by the sonic vibrations of sound therapy healing in order to experience a deeper connection between your body, mind and heart.
We begin by opening space traditionally with the seven directions and serving the cacao. During this blessing ceremony we give thanks to the Cacao Spirit from Guatemala, we call for the Cacao Spirit to bless us and our practice and then we drink the Cacao intentionally, in a hot chocolate form.
We then move through half an hour of asana flow practice as we invite the cacao to move through our bodies. Prepare to breathe, stretch, laugh, cry, chant, shift, expand and elevate.
As we move into our restorative (yin) yoga, you’ll be invited to allow the body to ease, the heart to soften and the old stories of the mind to fall away.
The therapeutic instruments including our fantastic gong collection, crystal singing bowls and shamanic drum will stimulate the brain wave frequencies associated with deep meditative states where we experience heightened creativity, depth of imagination and access to the subconscious realms.
About the cacao drink:
This ceremonial grade raw cacao is an antioxidant rich superfood, traditionally used by the ancient Mayans to open the door to greater consciousness and gives clarity and focus to the mind. This month's brew will be infused with the additional healing herbs of refreshing mint and the essence of plantain. Our humble plantain actually increases elasticity in the body-perfect for yoga!
