Join Om Shanti as Bodhi Tree Yoga travels off to Nepal AND India March 2020.

This 2 week Retreat begins with a journey to Nagorkot Nepal. Nestled just outside the Kathmandu Valley and surrounded by the Himalayas, the first section of this retreat will be a 6 night stay at Niru Yoga Homestay. Here, enjoy daily yoga classes, trekking through the mountain range and surrounding forrest, nature and wildlife. We will visit local temples, historical sites such as Bhaktapur, witness the sunrise over the Himalayas (even spotting Everest amongst the mountains). Rajan’s knowledge of the local history, of the surrounding areas, the land and the people makes for a rich experience filled with joy. His wife Niru is a magician in the kitchen as she preps 3 organic vegetarian meals’s per day, locally grown on their land! She happily offers to teach how to cook these meals with a smile as plentiful as the food offered!

On the 7th day of this Himalayan Retreat, we will journey off to Rishikesh India for the second leg of this trip. Once arrived in India, we will settle into Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram’s Uma Kutir and take part of some of the ashrams daily activities, including daily morning yoga class, Agni Hotra, and sattvic vegetarian meals. Here, the Indian leg of our retreat will have us enjoying local activities such as rafting down the Ganges river, trekking in the surrounding mountain range, a day trip to visit the now famous “Beatles Ashram”, a day trip to Sasar Gyan Patshala – the school that Helping Hands for India supports, visiting local temples, holy sites… and relaxation of course!

Sonic Yoga

Katt Brooks is Yoga Teacher and  Drez  Slezak (ASTRL TRVLR) is DJ/ Sound Healer based out of Ottawa Canada.  These two are co-creators of a yoga business called Sonic Yoga, where they travel around Canada, and the world providing a yoga and sound escape practice.  This has taken them on small and large retreats to yoga studios, retreat centers, as well as, providing a yoga and sound experience at music festivals.
Sonic Yoga was created as two passions in life, yoga and sound,  came together to create a magical experience for yoga practitioners. Sonic Yoga is an experience where we guide students through an accessible flow yoga practice while students experience the true benefits of frequency and sound. Katt teaches a flow yoga class that is professionally cued to link body, movement, breath and sound, so participants can be encouraged to get lost in the “flow” of their movement  and be encouraged to be creative with their inner self. 

While the movement takes place, Drez will use instruments (singing bowls, drums, symbols, dj equipment) to create a sound escape that stimulates sound healing in the people participating. Sound healing and meditation techniques like binaural beats will be used throughout the practice along with tribal earth rhythms. This practice starts the out slow and gentle with sound healing and meditation, Katt then begins to bring more movement into the practice  and Drez begins to bring up the tempo and bring in the music.  This sound and movement practice gets participants to be creative with their body, and to become intune with their body movements.  

The entire experience of Sonic Yoga is about using the benefits of yoga, movement, sound healing  and vibrations to experience these modalities in a way we typically may not.  The true benefits this practice occur as the healing sound frequencies enter the bodies of participants and the experience sound in a way they never thought possible.

Come by and join them on Friday May 3rd 2019 at 6:30pm for this event!
