Dive into your Heart with Yoga and Kirtan
* Opening Circle, Heart Meditation & Intention Setting
* Heart Opening Kirtan (Devotional Singing/Chanting)
* Deep Healing Meditative Chakra Balancing Hatha Yoga
* Closing Circle
We are very excited to create space for us to meet in the Heart and to drop into the infinite space of Being! We are bringing together the healing effects of Hatha Yoga with devotional singing (Kirtan) to open the Heart! This is a deep Heart-felt offering from our Hearts to yours. If you are called to open your Heart to more Love, Joy, Freedom & Peace, or are looking for deep relaxation, inner connection, calming the mind or opening of your voice to more free expression, do join us. This is a beautiful opportunity to take time out to nourish yourself and tune back into your deep Heart Self.
In this magicalevening we will go on an inner journey to explore the mystical world of Healing Yoga & Kirtan. Starting with a meditation to open our Hearts, we will continue to dive more deeply into our Hearts through the sacred sounds of Kirtan and chanting Sanskrit mantras. The Yoga part of our journey will include gentle Hatha Yoga poses focused on activating different chakras, opening the Heart, moving energy through the body & clearing blockages, & ultimately uniting us with our Divine Self. We will end with a beautiful, deep guided relaxation to leave you feeling blissed out, energised and connected to your inner and outer world. This workshop is suitable for all levels and no previous experience of yoga or singing is required!
We have very limited space available so to avoid disappointment book your place early! Advance booking only. The address is revealed upon booking and the event takes place in a cosy private location 10 mins walk from Wandsworth Town station (and near to Clapham Junction station).
MORE ON THE YOGA
We will practice a gentle, slow-paced, Chakra Balancing, Meditative form of Hatha Yoga, in which poses are held for several minutes and work deep into the muscles and connective tissues. This allows for the mind to move away from the body, so that the physical body is allowed to release layers of tension, relax & heal, increasing your sense of wellbeing. The focus is on moving energy through the body and activating the Chakras, which are potent energy centres that govern different physical, emotional/energetic aspects of our being. The Yoga helps to develop a deep sense of inner awareness, calms the nervous system, clear blockages, balances the mind, and improves health & flexibility. The practice ultimately helps to cultivate awareness of your Divine Self. Suitable for all levels, it provides wonderful balancing and harmonising qualities to our busy lifestyles. Please bring a Yoga mat if you have one (we have a limited number of mats).
WHAT IS KIRTAN?
Kirtan is devotional singing of sacred words (mantras) through which we invoke the Divine within us and allow the soothing healing vibrations to rejuvenate our whole being. It brings us together to the power of the present moment and allows us to rest in the Centre of our being. Through the repetition of mantras the mind remains calm, still and in a natural meditation. Chanting also energises, inspires and gives the intuition to move in Harmony with life. It connects us with the Divine and with our Higher Purpose. The mantras will be explained and guided through so no previous experience necessary, just relax and enjoy the experience. We will be chanting together as a group, so rest assured if you are a little shy! During the Kirtan you are welcome to sing, dance or simply rest in the healing vibrations!

"Heart-centered reverential yoga- I loved it." Richard
I really love the sessions you do, they are the most powerful I have ever experienced. Arabella, London
Fouzia is a fantastic teacher, very patient and attentive. Her classes are very gentle but incredibly powerful with a focus on the spiritual side of yoga that is often sadly neglected in the west. I feel like I've had an amazing healing after her classes. Highly recommended! Suzanne, London
"I've been doing yoga for most of my adult life, and with it I've found a sense of balance and self, in some of the toughest of times. But your session on chakra meditation has opened me up to an awareness I always somehow knew I was missing. This feels like the beginning of something new, the next phase of my journey. I felt touched by the simple, direct way you speak from the heart." Thank you. Bruno, London
"Such a blessing to be amongst the presence and grace of Nellie as she brings people together in her beautiful Kirtan. A wonderful space of freedom to express our love however it feels in the moment, just pure joy! Sacha, London
"Nellie's kirtans are a portal to the Divine within. The devotional songs are imbued with such love and warmth. Her voice and presence both soothe and uplift the spirit. Here, you are fully welcomed to be your natural joyous Self!" Andy, London
