About The Retreat Leaders

About Narayani

Narayani teaches both voice work and yoga and is also a devotional singer. She has trained with Chloe Goodchild and the Naked Voice as a voicework facilitator. Narayani has studied with teachers from the Krishnamacharya Yoga and Healing Foundation as well as the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Centres.

Her personal journey with yoga and sound, and the discovery of her powerful voice, had such a profound and transformative impact on her life that she passionately shares this with students and friends through devotional music, chanting sessions, sound and movement workshops, as well as teaching group, corporate and one to one yoga classes in and around London.

Her yoga classes involve working with ásana (Yoga postures), breath, sound & mantra and meditation and are influenced by the Krishnamacharya Healing & Yoga Foundation, as well as the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Tradition, where she has completed both the Teacher Training and Advanced Teacher Training Courses.

She has a degree in Health Sciences: Complementary Therapies which lends great experience to her classes and workshops.

Narayani is a walking song. Her devotional chant penetrates the mind awakens the heart, generating deep stillness and inner peace. Her sincere commitment to the Yoga of body and sound is empowering and inspiring for all who are blessed to practice with her

Chloe Goodchild, The Naked Voice.

Narayani is a true yoginí in the bhakti tradition. When she chants she truly disappears, so that you can hear the divine mother resounding through her. Narayani embodies devotion and her contribution to the world through Nada Yoga is a delight and inspiration to us all.’

Nikki Slade, Free the Inner Voice

About Abhijeeta

Abhijeeta‘s style of teaching is true to the Satyananda Yoga tradition, focusing on the meditative and spiritual aspects of Yoga and incorporating the whole person, not just the physical body. There is an emphasis on awareness and you are encouraged to learn about all aspects of your personality through Yoga. Through awakening individual’s awareness and inherent self-healing powers, physical diseases and mental stress can be managed and relieved. By steadying the emotions and calming the mind, a sense of perspective can be gained, bringing a feeling of peace, freedom and inner strength.

Abhijeeta has been teaching Yoga for over 7 years and love seeing the revitalizing, relaxing and transforming effects that Yoga has on the students (and herself!). She has a daily Yoga sádhana and she believes that Yoga is for everyone. It is her goal to pass on the ancient knowledge of yoga to her students, so they can experience the true spirit of Yoga and begin to integrate some of this wisdom into their lives.

The combination of “Yoga and Sound” is very powerful, especially within the special environment at ‘Bowles’, a beautiful place. This week will expand, transform and awaken you in ways that you never thought possible. It will be very beneficial for anyone wishing to connect with ease in their body, mind and soul and find expression through voice.
