Sound Healing:

This course will explore the art of playing sacred sound instruments such as Singing Bowls, Drums, Rainstick, Ukranian Peace Bells, Sansula, Koshi Chimes, Strings as well as Vocal Toning and Mantra, all held within a loving embrace. Over the week you will experience the magic of these sound vibrations – empowering you to share the skills of this wonderfully creative and inspirational world of Sacred Sound & Ceremony.

You will be introduced to the various SoundBathing Instruments, their techniques and how to use your voice as a diagnostic tool (vocal toning), learning how to sing and chant Mantra and Sacred Song. Over this week you will be immersed into the wonderfully creative and inspirational world of healing sound vibration.

You will explore, learn and practice:

  • Himalayan Singing Bowls – how to play these magical ancient “Goddess Bowls”
  • How to place the Goddess Singing Bowl directly on various chakras of the body.
  • How to incorporate Singing Bowls into your chosen therapy, yoga or practice.

Yin Yoga:

You will also be guided through Yin practices, learning about their history and power as you also learn about yourself. Most Yin poses are floor based, held between 1 and 20 minutes, and they allow us to explore the resistance points in our practice and all their influences; from muscles, soft tissue and neural networks, through the breath to the emotions, awareness and states of consciousness.

You will cover:

  • Practice and learn key Yin poses, how to teach them, including modifications and their contra-indications
  • The body’s muscular, fascial and myo-fascial meridian systems

  • Pain relief and catharsis
  • Introduction to the Chinese meridian system
  • Meditation and Pranayama
  • The use of props to maximise comfort and relaxation of muscles and fascia
  • Restorative poses, breathing, mindfulness and relaxation
  • Morning Yin sessions for your personal practice and develop a variety of ideas for your own classes


Overall, through various workshops and classes, you will experience and gain theoretical knowledge about how to bring Yin and Sound Healing together within one sacred space.

Tobie Tomkinson

My route into yoga came many years ago as I heard that it was good for back pain. It was, although it took me some years to reap the benefits and to really understand how it could be. Though I enjoyed many physical activities I shied away from the stronger, more linear Yoga practices as these only exacerbated my pain. Drawn toward what may now be called a yin / yang practice I have benefitted and enjoyed the not so simple act of slowing down and being still; in poses and in life.

For me, Yin practices are challenging and rewarding. Emphasising the psychosomatic element of existence, it offers a chance to question, to feel deeply, to acknowledge and to let go.

My passion for teaching is multi-faceted. With Yin itself I have always felt that something was missing. The predominant, and sometimes misinterpreted, focus on the physical benefits of Yin yoga and the affect it has on ‘fascia’ (long discussion!) seems too simplistic.

Flexibility is not just the increased length of soft tissue or fascia. In fact that may not even happen. When we explore the effects of a pose we must consider the structural, neural, psychological and emotional experiences we have almost simultaneously. Starting with the sensations we feel and our response to them.

So teaching inspires me to investigate - myself and others; to practice physically, morally, philosophically and psychologically.

To be creative; as the facilitator of an experience - from the moment a student enters the studio to their parting breath - we get to share what has benefited us in a joyful way and to be part of the benefits this has to others.

And question. Always question – the words I have written here, the truths and platitudes that others tell you. Yoga is a totally individual experience. That is one of its ultimate beauties. It is not one existential truth system. It is an invitation to dive into yourself, notice what you feel and to live from that truth.

As a teacher I like to challenge all it is that you and I have read or been taught about (Yin) Yoga – from stretching to Fascia, Chakras to Meridians, catharsis to healing. Because I want to hear what you feel, not to tell you how it is. To learn from your experiences, as your students will from you. And to ride on the wave of ancient knowledge whilst being part of the evolution of this infinite exploration. For that is Yoga and we are all equal within it.
