Saturday Workshops

  • Chakra Chant & Vocal Sound Bath

    10am-2pm, Saturday 9th December

    Clonlea Yoga Studios, 28b Sydney Ave, Blackrock

    €65/€55 early bird till midnight Saturday 2th Dec

    If you would like to be deeply relaxed yet feel a buzzing of energy in your body from feet to forehead, come along to this half day workshop, which is open to all adults. You don’t need to have any singing or voice-work experience and no one will be asked to sing solo. You will experience the healing power of vocal sound, and the workshop will bring you on a global journey through your chakras or energy centres, through simple vocal exercises, movements and chants from around the world.

    According to Time magazine “when you sing, musical vibrations move through you, altering your physical and emotional landscape”. Come on a musical journey from Africa to India to harness the power of vibration to recharge yourself on all levels. We will move through the chakras (energy centres) drawing on grounding, sensual, powerful, heartfelt, expressive and spiritual chants and songs from diverse cultures to help integrate ourselves. You will learn some simple yet powerful vocal exercises and mantras (short repeated sung sounds or words) to balance your energy centres (chakras) and will be given handouts and links to enable you to use them at home as a personal self-care tool.

    We will also give each person a vocal sound bath – the gift of lying, sitting or standing in the centre of the circle, and being sung to by the group. Ask the group for a chant, a mantra, a mood, a vowel sound or an improvised mix then close your eyes and be immersed in vocal sound. This is a deeply relaxing and nurturing experience and many participants report having insights, seeing beautiful colours, letting go of emotions or simply feeling blessed and blissed out.
