Saturday Serenade

Saturday Serenade - Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra

During a relaxing 90 minute Yin Yoga practice, musicians Manasi and Mahima will serenade you with a synergy of classical Hindustani instruments including the sarangi, sitar, taan mandal and the voice: Prepare to be transported into ancient India with this hauntingly beautiful blend of instruments and the mystical, healing vibration of Sanskrit mantra. 

French composer Debussy wrote ‘The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between them’. Not just an enchanting back drop to your yoga practice, their live performance will offer you the opportunity to explore the relationship between sound and silence, as we simultaneously explore the rebounding effect and the magic that often happens in between postures. 

Our tranquil evening will complete with a 30 minute guided relaxation known as a Yoga Nidra; a powerful practice that allows a deep healing of the nervous system.

About Mahima

I am French and Mexican living in New Zealand since 2012, mother of 3, violin maker, musician, yoga instructor and meditation teacher.

I have been a spiritual seeker since very young, exploring many schools of yoga and meditation. In 2002 I met the Ishaya monks who taught me Ascension and thanks to their clear guidance I now live in a permanent sense of peace, joy, trust, flow, gratitude and expansion.

One of my favourite ways to share this experience is playing Indian music on the Sarangi.
