We are doing our best to build a lovely group of like minded people. It really helps us if you can let friends know who might be interested. Many thanks in advance 🙂
Our events are called gong baths which are also known as sound baths – each relaxation session starts with a simple mindfulness exercise followed by bathing participants in particular sound frequencies. The NHS is increasingly using music and sound therapy, and new scientific studies are demonstrating how sound vibration can help stress, tension and other conditions. (Please see our Sound Therapy section for more information on the science).
These sessions are designed to help release stress built up over a busy week. We want to give you a timeout, somewhere to relax and recharge for the coming week. We have received some wonderful feedback about our events, many of our members are now attending on a weekly basis.

Sample reviews from Meetup
“First class. Excellence, efficiency and professionalism, with warmth and friendliness from two gong experts in Gary and Olga Evans, who explained everything well at the beginning, and made us all feel very relaxed and at ease, so we knew what to expect. There was humour in the education and a phenomenally wonderful group of very warm and caring attendees. If every gathering was a good as this, the world would become perfect overnight. Very highly recommended. ” Mercedes
“As waves of sound washed over me during a group session focusing on opening the heart chakra, my body trembled and knots of tension were released. I left feeling much lighter and at peace. Everyone was very friendly in the group and Gary and Olga make it all very down to earth – and fun – highly recommended for anyone wanting to simply de-stress or to allow their mind and body the space to open and reveal more – Thank you! ” Jane
“I felt immediately relaxed and welcomed by the friendly nature of Gary & Olga. The atmosphere and environment was one of extreme calm & peace, resulting in a feeling of relaxation and healing. Highly recommended!” Elise

Traditional Himalayan Style Yoga
Trained in India, we are teaching traditional Himalayan style Hatha yoga, incorporating aspects of Yin yoga and mindfulness for a deeply relaxing class. Our classes are suitable for everyone including first-time yoga practitioners. We will offer variations of the yoga postures to anyone with more experience. Yoga is a balance between mind, body, and spirit. Our yoga practices combine all three elements – physical workout in the form of yoga postures; exercises to extend vital force (also known as prana or chi/ki) – pranayama; and spiritual practices. In our physical practice, we will focus on warming up and opening exercises. Simple yet profound, our classes are aimed at increasing the flexibility of the body, we highly recommended them for anyone with stiff joints, flexibility issues, those new to yoga, or anyone who wants to deepen their yoga practice. The result is a deep yogic practice aimed at boosting health, increasing energy and vitality, lifting the spirits, improving mood, and increasing mental and physical strength, stability, and balance. For a deeper experience, we recommend combining our yoga classes with our gong bath.

ABOUT NATURE THERAPY:
Nature Therapy, as defined and practiced by Holistic Healing Therapy, is a type of relaxation involving spending time in nature to promote health and well-being. We combine different practices including mindfulness, grounding, and natural aromatherapy; using short exercises we also encourage the development and use of various senses. We aim to give you an opportunity to stop and look at life from a larger perspective. We have been inspired by forest bathing, currently widely practiced for its therapeutic properties in Japan and the USA.
In Japan, a forest bathing trip is called Shinrin-yoku.
“A forest bathing trip involves visiting a forest for relaxation and recreation while breathing in (wood essential oils). Incorporating forest bathing trips into a good lifestyle was first proposed in 1982 by the Forest Agency of Japan. It has now become a recognized relaxation and/or stress management activity in Japan.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forest_bathing
Some of the scientifically proven benefits of spending time in nature include reduced stress levels, stronger immune system response, and a stabilised cortisol cycle. You can read more about the benefits of Nature Therapy on our website.
