Summer Solstice Celebration

Come and celebrate the summer solstice with like minded friends as we come together for some yummy outdoor yoga in the beautiful gardens of Gwills Cottage. We will delight in the evening summer warmth with a heart opening yoga practice and then set our intentions for the second half of the year with a gorgeous manifesting meditation. Traditionally, this potent time of year is marked with the practice of 108 sun salutations, but we will instead chant 108 rounds of Gayatri mantra - a prayer to the sun.

A time of transition and renewal, our celebration of the longest day of the year is a time when we can let go of whatever has happened so far this year and then move into the second part with clarity, gratitude and open arms! We will conclude our practice with a simple vegan supper to share on the lawn. If the weather isn’t great (this is England after all!) then we have the studio for practice and supper.

Summer Solstice is a celebration of the longest day of the year where the sun is at its highest point in the sky in the Northern hemisphere (in June anyway!). It has been celebrated since ancient times for many different reasons, but for me the meaning highlights the potent time of light. A time to not only celebrate the sun and all its glorious gifts, but also the light which resides in each and every one of us. By light I mean the energy of awakening, abundance and opportunity. It is the realisation that there is something greater than us and a state of expansion rather than ignorance.

If you would like to join us, please bring a cup, plate & cutlery. All equipment is provided at Gwills, but if you have your own you are welcome to bring it. Please wear layers to suit the changing outdoor temperature and any additional blankets etc if you want to be super comfy and warm.

Earlybird (until 10th June) £25 - too late!

Chanting the mahamrityunjaya mantra for healing

Chanting the mahamrityunjaya mantra for healing

Join together for this pop up mantra chanting and meditation class at Gwills Yoga in Newquay.

Chanting this mantra with sincerity and faith creates a protective shield around you thereby guarding you against all directions. This mantra removes the fears and assists with overcoming difficulties, obstacles, challenges and accidents. Chanting in a group will increase the resonance and the healing tones can permeate your being with healing vibrations.

Listen to the beautiful story behind the mantra, then learn the lyrics along with the sanskrit translation. We will chant the mantra together 108 times to raise healing vibrations for ourselves, someone in need, our local community and then all beings. 108 is a sacred number symbolising many things. The individual numbers 1, 0, and 8 represent one thing, nothing, and everything (infinity). 108 represents the ultimate reality of the universe as being simultaneously one, emptiness, and infinite.

Bring an instrument if you fancy and wear layered comfy clothing that you are able to move in as we may do some very gentle stretching before we sit for meditation.

This is a charity event so all proceeds will go to Level Water charity who provide free swimming lessons to disabled children.
