Event description



The class is based in the Haelan centre (health food shop) in Crouch end opposite the clock tower. But the yoga studio which is above the health food shop is only accessible by ringing the door bell on the entrance through Crouch Hall Rd.


There are many methods of healing with sound. Mantras and chants have been used for thousands of years. Many acoustic instruments are used in a variety of ways to effect change. The human voice is perhaps the most powerful musical instrument.

Scientific studies show that sound can produce changes in the autonomic, immune, endocrine and neuropeptide systems. Every atom, molecule, cell, gland, and organ of the human body absorbs and emits sound. The entire body, as well as our brain waves in a relaxed state, vibrates at a fundamental frequency of about 8 cycles per second, literally entraining and attuning us to the basic electromagnetic field of the earth itself!


Crystal bowls are made from 99.992% pure crushed quartz and heated to about 4000 degrees in a centrifugal mold. When they are played certain notes will correspond with ones energy centers or chakras and the sound will work to rebalance the flow of energy through these centres. Some bowls harmonize with other bowls, and when both are played simultaneously, the effect is exquisite. The harmonious sound patterns instill a feeling of immense space and profound peace. As body and spirit are touched by the living sound of the bowls, a sense of physical well-being arises that remains even after the session.


The class duration is 1 hour 15min and i will dedicate 15/20min to playing the crystal singing bowls during this time.

My classes aim to encourage you to connect with your breath, feel your body and move out of your mind. I will guide you through physical yoga postures (asana), pranayama (breath work) and a short meditation or yoga nidra. I will also use crystal singing bowls which brings the mind, body and heart into stillness very quickly.

We will honour the seasons at various points in the year and work to open and strengthen the meridians(energy channelsthat run through the body) associated with the seasons.

My inspiration and sharing comes from all that i have embodied and learned along my own journey which i will offer to you.

My intention is always to encourage you to listen to the inner wisdom of your body, mind and heart in the moment. Everybody is welcome in my classes - my oldest student is 98yrs old! :)

I look forward to meeting with you

About Zen yoga

Zen is concerned with finding your own truth and expressing that, and on that journey your body and your experience is your wisest guide.

Zen yoga practice, postures and movements are used to bring the body into focus so that we can notice any tightnesses or restrictions. The student is then directed to bring their non-judgemental attention and kindness to these blocked or closed areas, and it's this simple awareness that causes our body, mind and heart to open.

During this process 3 themes are integrated:

Physical alignment

How you are in your physical body affects how you are in your mind.


Energy and consciousness are inextricably linked – when we change our energy, we change our consciousness and vice versa.

Awareness or mindfulness

The Buddha is recorded as saying, “There is one thing that leads to happiness in the present and liberation in the future; and what is this one thing? It is mindfulness of the body.”

By coming face to face with our unhappiness and reactivity we find happiness and liberation. When we combine physical alignment, energy and awareness we are aligning body, mind and heart in the moment and this can have powerful effects in our life both on the mat and out in the wider community.
