I have been attending Holly’s workshops and gong baths for the past 3 years, since moving to the area . I find her to be an excellent teacher who exudes calmness and peace. I like her teaching style, which is informative and inclusive of everyone present. I find that she imparts great wisdom and I always come away feeling nurtured as well as having learnt something new. I have recommened her to a number of fellow yogis all of whom have felt the same as me!

What is a gong bath?
The gong is traditionally used in the Kundalini Yoga tradition as a healing tool. It is like a primitive form of ultrasound: the sound vibrations of the gong move through your bodymind clearing blocks, releasing tension and bringing harmony to your whole body.
What can I expect?
You are invited to create a cosy space on the floor to relax on (chairs are always available for any back issues). People bring warm blankets, loose clothing, cushions & warm socks.
- We begin by stilling ourselves to create an intention for the session.
- Gentle stretching & breathwork are used to relax the body & down-regulate the nervous system to prepare the ‘soil’ of the body to receive the sound
- You lie down & are led in guided visualisation into deep relaxation
- The the gong is also played for about 40 minutes.
- You are brought up out of deep relaxation
- Tea & ayurvedic snacks are served afterwards
What does the gong do?
When we hear the word ‘gong’ we often think of people crashing and banging on gongs making terrifying noises: this gong-playing is nothing like that! The gong is played using a soft shamanic-like drumming rhythm which soothes the nervous system and relaxes the brain through various brain-wave states- alpha (relaxed/ daydreaming), theta (deep meditation) and delta (deep sleep). The sound waves enable deep healing and clear blockages from the bodymind; it is quite common to twitch and realign during a sound healing session, and to have vivid images arise or to feel like you are taken on a inner journey. The gong enables us to relinquish control of the thinking mind and to enable the innate wisdom of the body to return us to a state of harmony and balance.
