YOGA & MEDITATION

If you want to improve your yoga practice, possibly try more advanced postures, or look for alinement and adjustment, a 1-2-1 can be hugely beneficial. You can talk to Josephine before the session to curate a special hour just for you. Maybe combine Hatha with Yin, Vinyasa with Restorative, or a longer meditation and Pranayama practice.

Yoga 

At Echo Josephine holds and creates a welcoming space where you can heal your mind, body, and soul. She specialises in deeply healing yoga classes, guiding you onto a path of self-discovery and personal growth.

At Echo we offer once Zoom class a week online, where you will be taken on a journey, the practice making an impactful positive affect on your life. Josephine's mission is to help you heal, so you can move through life with more ease, peace and healthier relationships’. 

Yoga is feature on day retreats, during the cooler months in the yurt and at the fabulous retreats. Josephine is an experienced and knowledgable instructir, who's dance background allows her to deepen the practice through body awareness and years of movement exploration.

The body and mind are one, I like to think about in in terms of water, the sea or a river, each day the water is different, crashing waves, strong winds, then small ripples and blue skies, this is also the nature of being human. When you practice yoga, the focus on the breath helps you tune into the body, aiming to calm and quieten the crashing waves, during the asana(posture) practice you feel a deeper connection to yourself, and a calm state will wash over you in shavasana (the bit at the end we lie down, one of the most important parts!), think of the waves rippling quietly against the shore.

The more spiritual aspect of the practice you can connect to as much as you like, it can help each one of us learn something new about the way we choose to live, love and connect, it gives deeper meaning to our day-to-day lives and tunes into our purpose and connection.

WHAT IS A SOUNDBATH?

First time at a Soundbath? Here's what to expect and why.

You don't need any special clothing or equipment for a sound bath, but you should wear comfortable clothes. Bring a yoga mat, blankets, pillow, eye pillow, or other props that will make you comfortable.

 

"A Soundbath seeks to balance our physical, emotional, and mental systems, restoring a sense of harmony," 

 

Josephine will guide you through a short meditation to ease us into the space, then she will play a variety of instruments to soothe you and allow you to rest deeply. These include, metal hammered bowls, chimes, crystal bowls, gongs, monochord, voice and tongue drum.

All you have to do is lie back, take a deep breath and let go.

People have been using sound to promote healing for thousands of years. For example, ancient Greek physicians used musical instruments as therapy believing that the instruments' vibrations could aid in digestion, treat mental disturbance, and induce sleep. Meanwhile, ancient Egyptians thought musical incantations healed the sick. We have just taken this ancient form of music medicine and made it accessible.

So, How does it work?

Now this is a vast topic, but I will try my best to bring in some key points.

Binaural beats, using tones that are close in frequency, but not the same, help to synchronise your brainwaves, thus encouraging a Theta state of brainwaves, this is the state you'll find yourself in during a deep meditation or on the cusp of sleep.

✨A few of the chosen instruments may encourage ASMR(A tingling all over the skin and head), scientist believe this is because the brain is telling the person they are cared for and safe.

Quantum Physics! We are using vibrations to move the whole of the physical form and baseline energy of the body, this promotes healing, rest, a 'deep massage like' release. Our body holds everything, we don't often give ourselves time to process even day to day things, so the body holds on, it remembers. Sound healing can be exceptionally helpful for those who are suffering from depression, trauma, grief. 

Raising your vibration, every walked in to a room and you can FEEL the energy as heavy, perhaps the people, the words being said, the light levels or noise... then think, every wandered into a 'light' place, perhaps the depths of nature, the cool sea, or maybe an outside concert? How it has impacted you. 'raising your vibration' is often mocked as hippy expression, but it is literally what we are doing in a Soundbath or healing. Untying knots, letting go of old feelings, beliefs and energy. Resetting the whole system.

Rest. Soundbaths can facilitate a deep state of meditation, that many of us(myself included) might struggle to attain on a day to day basis. In this state, our brainwaves will synchronise to Theta or Delta. This in turn triggers a response from the Vagus nerve and helps the parasympathetic nervous system, digestive system and healing systems kick in.

Spiritual connection. For those of us who come from a yoga background or believe beyond the physical realm Sound can be immense transformative, it can support ancestral healing, allow deeper thoughts and ideas to emerge, it also tunes up the Chakra system, something I'm deeply passionate about. If you focus on the sound and let go of the physical world, profound healing and energy work can take place.

Neuroscience: Brainwaves. Which brainwaves are you likely to encourage during a session(if you focus on the sound and ecourage the mind to get quiet, and yes, just like meditation, this might take practice!)

DELTA WAVES (.5 TO 3 HZ)Delta brainwaves are slow, loud brainwaves (low frequency and deeply penetrating, like a drum beat). They are generated in deepest meditation and dreamless sleep. Delta waves suspend external awareness and are the source of empathy. Healing and regeneration are stimulated in this state, and that is why deep restorative sleep is so essential to the healing process.THETA WAVES (3 TO 8 HZ)Theta brainwaves occur most often in sleep but are also dominant in deep meditation. Theta is our gateway to learning, memory, and intuition. In theta, our senses are withdrawn from the external world and focused on signals originating from within. It is that twilight state which we normally only experience fleetingly as we wake or drift off to sleep. In theta we are in a dream; vivid imagery, intuition and information beyond our normal conscious awareness. It’s where we hold our ‘stuff’, our fears, troubled history, and nightmares.ALPHA WAVES (8 TO 12 HZ)Alpha brainwaves are dominant during quietly flowing thoughts, and in some meditative states. Alpha is ‘the power of now’, being here, in the present. Alpha is the resting state for the brain. Alpha waves aid overall mental coordination, calmness, alertness, mind/body integration and learning.

Each note you hear in a sound bath has a purpose. It’s more than just a string of beautiful sounds tied together — there is intention behind every note and every sequence.
