1pm – 4pm
Raigmore Recreational Hall
A morning of restorative yoga, pranayama and deep relaxation surrounded by aromas of essential oils and concluded by an hour of singing bowls.
We will start with pranayama (breathing exercises) and will continue with our Yin Yoga practice focusing on deep restorative Yoga postures to distress, release, restore, improve circulation and target deep muscles and tissues during this wonderful gentle but effective Yoga Practice. The session will conclude with an hour of Sound Bath – an immersion in sounds and vibrations that are healing for your body, mind and soul.
March Session will also have a special Essential Oils infusion into it: we will be diffusing Thieves Oil Blend during our practice. You can purchase Thieves Oil Sprays and rollers as a part of a Workshop or separately.
Thieves oil is a blend of cinnamon, clove, rosemary, lemon and eucalyptus oils. The blend is known for its antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, disinfectant, flu and cold cure and many other qualities. It is especially useful to have this time of the year when we are exposed to loads of viruses and colds.
It is called Thieves Oil after a 15th century legend about four thieves from Marseilles who were robbing dead people who passed away as a result of a plague. Those thieves did not contact any disease or infection due to the application of a powerful blend of oil on their body and masks. It has then become known as Thieves Oil.
It can be bought or handmade using the right dose of each of the oils that constitute the blend. Then you can diffuse, make your own sprays and cleaning products, apply it topically or use it in a bath.
What is Sound Bath?
A Sound Bath is a relaxing meditative experience. Everything in the Universe, including our body, is composed of vibrations. Every organ and every cell in our body vibrates at a particular frequency. Sound and vibration travels through water and as our human body is made up of over 70% water then sound and vibration can affect us at a cellular level. The healing frequencies and vibrations of the singing bowls will wash away all your stress and tension. Some benefits of a sound bath include:
- Balances both hemispheres of the brain.
- Changes our old patterns of behaviour, habits and way of thinking that no longer serve us and are harmful to our health.
- Cleanses negative energy and emotions.
- Connecting with your higher self.
- Deep relaxation.
- Helps to recover after illness, traumas and invasive medical treatments.
- Helps to cope with life’s challenges.
- Improves sleep.
- Increases vital energy flow, creativity, intuition and motivation.
- Makes positive changes to our whole being.
- Removes blockages and toxins.
- Soothes, purify and harmonise your emotions and feelings.
- Stimulates circulation.
- Stimulates endocrine glands and regulates hormonal functioning.
- Strengthens immune system. Stress reduction. Pain reduction.
- Stables blood pressure.
- Mental clarity.
- Reduce cardiac disease.
- Increases self confidence.
- Increasing energy
I first tried Sound Bath with Jillian in February and loved it. It is a wonderful experience and the hour of the practice feels like 10 minutes. I slept like a baby at night and felt so much more calm and peaceful after the session. I loved it so much that decided to join forces with Jillian and trial run a session combining both Yoga and Singing Bowls.

I have been teaching since 2006 with 13 years Pilates and 9 years of Yoga experience (practicing for 9 and teaching for the last 5).
A few words about Jillian: Jill loves walking and connecting with the outdoors. She has worked as an Occupational Therapist Assistance Practitioner in Mental Health for 19 years. During her role she trained as a QiGong Practitioner. This awakened her interest in Energy work and it’s benefits for self healing. Last year Jillian had the opportunity to train as a Sound Therapist.

***Eye Pillows are currently unavailable***
Handmade bespoke Eye Pillows will be available to purchase on the day for £10 and are also available to purchase from my website. These will be available in various colours. Eye pillows are filled with lavender from my mum’s garden to aid relaxation, and a mix of flaxseed and rice.
The lavender smell is amazing! I brought the dried lavender flowers all the way from Belarus together with flaxseed (not milled) and added rice for a bit more weight.
If you would like it to be made with no lavender, please let me know and I will do that for you.
*You can add a couple of drops of essential oils of your choice to the Eye pillows*
