What to expect!
Following the yoga practice, the participants are invited to lie down and prepare for the gong bath. A gong bath is a form of sound therapy where gongs and other harmonic instruments are played to create a soothing and immersive sound experience. The resonant and vibrating sounds produced by the gongs help induce a meditative state, promoting deep relaxation and a sense of tranquillity. The participants simply lie back, close their eyes, and allow the sound waves to wash over them, creating a therapeutic and transformative experience.

A gong sound bath is a type of sound therapy where participants are immersed in the sounds and vibrations produced by gongs. It is a form of meditation or relaxation technique that promotes a deep sense of relaxation and inner peace. During a gong sound bath session, participants typically lie down on mats or sit in a comfortable position, and a practitioner plays the gong or gongs using different techniques and rhythms.
The gong is a powerful instrument that produces a wide range of tones, frequencies, and harmonics. When played, it creates a rich and complex sound that can have a profound effect on the mind and body. The vibrations produced by the gong are believed to resonate with the body’s energy system, helping to restore balance and harmony.
Relaxation and Stress Reduction: The soothing sounds of the gong can induce a state of deep relaxation, reducing stress and anxiety. The vibrations can help quiet the mind and release tension from the body, promoting a sense of calm and well-being.
Meditation and Mindfulness: Gong sound baths can support meditation and mindfulness practices by providing a focal point for attention. The sounds and vibrations can help participants achieve a meditative state more easily, deepening their practice and enhancing their ability to stay present.
Physical Healing: The vibrations of the gong can penetrate deeply into the body, stimulating the cells and tissues. Some people believe that gong sound baths can promote physical healing, relieve pain, and support the body’s natural healing processes.
Emotional Release and Inner Exploration: The gong’s powerful vibrations can also help release emotional blockages and facilitate emotional healing. Participants may experience a range of emotions during a sound bath, allowing them to explore and process their feelings in a supportive and non-judgmental environment.
Enhanced Creativity and Intuition: The gong sound bath experience can awaken and deepen one’s connection to intuition and creativity. The vibrations and sounds can help quiet the analytical mind and access a more intuitive and imaginative state of consciousness.

Pallavi ( Pallavi’s Kitchen) our local business in west London will be making Dosa on the spot.
Dosa is a traditional South Indian savoury pancake or crepe made from fermented rice and urad dal (black lentils). It is a popular breakfast item in India, especially in the states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Andhra Pradesh.
The preparation of dosa involves soaking rice and urad dal separately for several hours or overnight. After soaking, the ingredients are ground into a smooth batter and then left to ferment overnight. The fermentation process gives dosa its characteristic tangy flavour and makes it light and crispy.
To cook dosa, the fermented batter is spread thinly on a hot griddle or tava in a circular motion, creating a thin, round pancake. It is typically cooked until it turns golden brown and crispy on the edges. Dosa can be served with various accompaniments such as coconut chutney, sambar (a lentil-based vegetable stew), and different kinds of flavoured chutneys.
There are various types of dosa, each with its own unique variations, such as masala dosa (filled with a spiced potato mixture), rava dosa (made from semolina), and many more.
Dosa is not only delicious but also considered a nutritious and wholesome meal due to the combination of rice and lentils, providing a good balance of carbohydrates and protein. It has gained popularity worldwide and is enjoyed by people from different cultural backgrounds.
