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!
SOUND BATHING WITH THE NEW MOON?
Pure Gong sound baths fall monthly on the Saturdays closest to the new moon. Why? Lunar cycles are very significant in yoga. New Moon energy is the time to sow new projects & intentions. Full Moon energy is the time to survey, reap the harvest & release the chaff. Read more about lunar energy.

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.
