 Kavalya Bani Sol Flow Healing 

Having held a deep passion for music since childhood, I realised that music is more than just a modality which invokes strong feelings, it can also be used as a tool for healing. Delving into this fascination with sound and vibration and the effects on the body and mind led me to the transformational modality of Sound and Vibrational Therapy. Through my continuing interest in the power of the mind and body as its own healer I have expanded my healing modalities to include Zenthai Shiatsu, Osho Meditations, Breathwork and Qi Gong.

Modalities

Through the practice of kundalini yoga you can expand consciousness and it will help you achieve self-realisation, tapping into Kundalini shakti energy, flowing into expanded creativity & awakening to your soul purpose.

Kundalini Mantra & Meditation with Nirvair Devi

Chanting mantra produces specific vibratory frequency within the body. The sounds and thoughts produced by the body and mind radiate out from you. The vibratory frequency of a mantra draws to you whatever you are vibrating. You are like a magnet attracting vibrations to you by what you send out. As a vibration, a mood, a state of being that results from chanting, mantra is compatible with all belief systems.

Ecstatic Dance Somatic Movement with Nirvair Devi

 Ecstatic dance is a free-form movement and type of dance form, often practiced without a fixed choreography. The idea of ecstatic dance is to completely lend yourself and your body to the rhythm of the music. In ecstatic dance, you move freely through the space leading to a state of trance and ecstasy (hence the name ecstatic). In trance, many dancers find that ecstatic dance brings them into a deep meditative state. In ecstatic dance, one is fully and devotedly in the body and therefore also fully in the present moment.
