Recent Testimonials 

Laughter Yoga: Thank you Odette, it was the highlight of our Mental Health Awareness Week programme. Something so different, fun and beneficial to staff stress levels and overall health.

Laughter Yoga:  It felt like I had just released 3-4 years of laughter after a very tough few years with not much to laugh about.

We really can forget how to laugh!! Imagine that feeling of Catharsis which is very possible during the laughter meditation. 

Gong Bath: Thank you very much for a great intro to soundbaths – I did enjoy it very much. I felt all the instruments intensely and every single one was beautiful in its own right and brought out different sensations – very cool.  Thank you again for a great first time experience. (from Eva a Gong newbie )

Gong Bath: It was totally awesome last night. Thank you so much. Totally lifted my mood and I was so relaxed after. It was a special one :-) thank you. Natasha

Laughter Yoga Contraindications

Laughter Yoga is not a substitute for medical consultation for physical, mental and psychological illnesses, but is a powerful natural complementary form of healing. It is like any other aerobic exercise and may not be suitable for everyone as it involves some physical strain and a rise in intra-abdominal pressure.

Some people may have pre- existing medical conditions and one should take reasonable precaution before doing laughter exercises or indeed any form of exercise.

It is contraindicated for people suffering from: Any kind of hernia, Heart disease with angina pain, Persistent cough with breathlessness, Uncontrolled high blood pressure, Incontinence of urine, Epilepsy, Advanced (bleeding) piles and haemorrhoids or any bleeding tendencies in any part of the body, Severe backache, Any acute symptoms of cough, cold and fever. People who have undergone major surgery should wait at least three months before doing Laughter Yoga.

If in doubt first consult a medical professional for guidance. Anyone undergoing physician-prescribed therapy that experiences improvements through laughter should seek the advice of their doctor before reducing dosage or stopping treatment.

Relative contraindications

Those suffering from heart disease and high blood pressure but are stable on medication and can take a brisk walk for 30 minutes without any symptoms can do Laughter Yoga with advice from medical specialists.

People who have undergone bypass surgery can also do Laughter Yoga after their stress test is normal. Pregnancy is also a relative contraindication. Women with previous history of miscarriages and also those who are in advanced stage of pregnancy should take medical advice from specialists before doing laughter exercises. People suffering from minor and major psychiatric disorders can participate in a laughter session except those who are not in touch with reality e.g. schizophrenia, Hyper mania (manic part of bipolar depression)

If in doubt please give me a call to discuss.

 

Friday Gong Bath Meditation – London ( Angel Islington ) 5th May

Gong Bath and Sound Meditation in London 5th May 2017, Angel & Islington 

A journey of sound to experience a deep and blissful state enhanced by the power of the gong.

Feeling Stressed ? Can’t Sleep ? Feeling out of balance ?

Immerse yourself in the sound waves from a vibrating gong.

Fantastic for stress relief, relaxation, insomnia and so much more. Many people report back as having had ‘the best night’s sleep’ after having attended.

What happens in a Gong Bath ?

You lie down fully clothed on a camping/yoga mat on the floor, warm and cosy with a blanket covering you whilst the Gongs and other Therapeutic instruments are played. The experience can feel different each and every time and for each person. Most commonly you will drift in to a space of deep relaxation ( a meditative state brought on by the sounds of the instruments ) you may fall asleep for some of the time, you may feel that you travel with the sounds, you may even see visions, perhaps colours or even hear other sounds.  Most importantly at the end, you can feel brighter, lighter, less stressed and re-energised. The gongs can also be very healing, helping to bring your mind, body and soul in to balance and even clear blockages. At the very least you are most likely to have a damn good sleep which is great for those suffering from insomnia. Some people report back as having felt the benefits and effects even a few days after the Gong Bath.

Note for those unable to lie down, it is possible to remain seated in a chair. Lying down is the most relaxing way to experience this fabulous meditation.

Benefits 

Gong sound can help to re-balance the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. It has a profound affect on our cardiovascular, autonomic, endocrine and immune systems. It is an excellent holistic and complimentary therapy for stress related issues, depression, fatigue, anger and hostility, feelings of separation, loneliness, and fear along with many other conditions related to lack of balance and harmony in the body.

Do I need Experience of Meditation ?

NO Not at all. NO EXPERIENCE Necessary. The Gongs do all the work. All that is required is a willingness to accept and receive. It is relaxing and a great de-stress.

What to Bring

Please bring what you need for comfort lying down. Please bring Yoga Mats, blanket or light cover and head cushion. When we are at our most relaxed, our body temperature can drop! Best to be warm and comfy even wrap up in a sleeping bag. Water to re-hydrate.

Preperation

Light food only up to an hour beforehand unless earlier in the day. No alcohol before the gong bath and best not afterwards too.
