‘ASANA- NADA’ experience / workshop
Yoga and beats (‘Tabla vinyasa’), Mantra, followed by Music meditation on Bansuri and more
This workshop, carefully designed by Jason Kalidas, is a working synergy of healing sound (nada yoga), Asana and simple Mantra singing. The combination of these Yogic practices enhance each other, and bring us further into connection with our own being.
The workshop sequence is as follows .
TABLA VINYASA – Rhythmic inspired Asana
During this section Jason works intuitively with a yoga instructor to create a unique synergy of Tabla beats, Vinyasa sequences and breath.
Live Tabla beats are timed with the pace of the sequence and rhythmically weave breath and movement together, focusing the mind as well as adding an energising ‘groove’ experience to Yoga . Expect a highly focused class that builds in energy
After the Asana session or bodies are open and the mind is in higher state of awareness, which is perfect for using the voice for some simple mantra singing .
We sit on around the harmonium for a simple toning session on vowel sounds and Bija mantra of the chakras.
YIN YOGA and SOUND BATH
Bansuri and harmonic soundcapes
Now with activated and relaxed body and mind we can receive enhanced benefits of an immersion in healing sound. Bansuri (Indian classical flute) and live harmonic soundscapes take us on a sensorial while deeply meditative journey, clearing the mind and bringing awareness into the emotional body.
Sound immersion will be in restorative postures, sitting meditation and finally Savasana
Tabla beats a generally around 150BPM which fits the natural pace vinyasa / breath rhythm
