A sound bath is a deeply relaxing and blissful experience designed to cultivate wellbeing. There is no water involved and all your clothes stay on - the term bath refers to the waves of sound that audience is immersed in. Two facilitators will use a range of therapeutic instruments such as gongs, singing bowls, drums, didgeridoo and chimes. The sounds that we create are highly complex and unfathomable, which often leads the brain into a deeply meditative state and the blissful state that results can often last for several days.
NB Please be aware that a sound bath can sometimes bring emotions to the surface, so if you are feeling sensitive it is advisable to ensure that you have some friends nearby who can support you if necessary after the experience.

NB: This workshop involves significant portions of movement, such as walking, skipping and jumping, which may present accessibility issues for some. Please speak to the facilitator in advance of the workshop if you would like further information.

Brother and sister Andy and Julia started dancing forró 15 years ago after discovering it whilst travelling in Brazil as part of a capoeira event. After a few years they founded their own forró night in London called Forró Family which had now become one of the most adored forró nights in Europe and welcomes new people every week. They regularly teach their own lessons and workshops around the UK and beyond.
