Guided Candlelight Yin YOGA & Alchemy Crystal Healing Sound Bath Workshop with Shannon van Staden of Mindfulness Journeys
SUNDAY 15th SEPTEMBER, 2pm-3:30pm
Welcome to a Candlelight one hour guided meditation & yin yoga with 30 minute savasana & sound healing with crystal bowls!
What is Yin Yoga?
Yin yoga is an introspective practice. With resting into long held postures that allow the muscles and connective tissues (fascia) to relax, Yin Yoga has therapeutic effects to keep these tissues healthy, but also to release stress, anxiety and emotions. We work with strengthening joints and ligaments to avoid stiffness as we age, and work deeply with calming the mind and relaxing the nervous system.
What is Crystal Bowl Sound Healing?
We end our 60 minute yin yoga workshop with a 30 minute savasana with three extraordinary and beautiful alchemy crystal singing bowls.
The Alchemy Crystal Singing Bowls are known to have the purest sounds and are made from 99.99% clean crystal quartz. The sounds are vibrational medicine and gently penetrate your cells and brainwaves and produce light that harmonises imbalances in your body, mind and emotional state. You can go into a deep state of relaxation which results in feeling lighter, infinitely more relaxed and even energised.
The pure sounds of these alchemy crystal bowls atunes us to the natural state of wellbeing through vibration. Vibration and sound is found everywhere, but what is especially effective about crystal bowl resonance is their pure and beautiful quality of sound. It atunes us to ourselves by magnetising us and getting us on it’s frequency. It atunes us to our innate healthiness and wholeness. The pure sounds work with stress, fatigue, insomnia, pain and rebalancing in the body resulting in relief and deep relaxation.

Shannon’s crystal bowls are:
6# B -45 Rose Quartz
Love Activation. A heart-to-heart bowl for emotional healing and calming. Known as the "stone of gentle love," natural rose quartz is fused with pure quartz crystal in this award-winning "most transformational product of the year" bowl that encourages inner harmony. Softly opens the heart center, relieves tension, heals etheric fields, assists in relationships and aligns the chakras while energizing our innate love core.
7# G - 40 Mother of Platinum
A natural harmonizer of pure quartz and platinum that creates a mother of pearl essence and opalescent finish and carries an energy of Venus, the goddess of love. Microscopic bubbles added to the quartz produce a porous surface and pastel elegance with a nurturing vibration of water elementals. The beautiful and spherical completeness of pearls represents an ever-present and fullness of Spirit. Helpful in working through emotional issues and giving birth to mature Divine Mother/Gaia energies in a sound stream of comfort.
8# D - 50 Androgynous Indium
The deeply violet-hue iridescent bowl contains Indium, a non-synthesized natural substance for vitamin and mineral absorption, balance in body alignment, centering, clearing and integrating male/female aspects of self. Radiating the violet light of ascension (I AM ONE), the Androgynous Indium bowl illumines one's Interior Life, allowing all aspects of Self. Embracing the physical shift to male/female balance, we fully dance the expanded frequencies of Enlightenment that transcend cultural belief systems.
My bowls are from Crystal Singing Bowls by Crystal Tones.
My teachers and inspiration are Yantara Jiro, Carly Grace and Kate Stewart.
