About the teacher:
Yoga & Sound founder Szilvia Gardian (www.szilviagardian.com ) is dedicated to share her specialised knowledge and her love for singing bowls during her workshops.
Szilvia has been teaching various forms of movement for over a decade. Soon after graduating as a yoga teacher she found her calling when she got introduced to the art of using singing bowls by her aunt, Szilagyi Zoltanne Balint Gyorgyi, who is the founder of the Sound Therapy Institute Budapest. After her initial singing bowl training Szilvia was eager to explore the possibilities of combining sound work and yoga.
Under the professional guidance of her aunt and mentor, Szilvia spent 2 years developing Yoga & Sound, her interpretation of how a mindful yoga practice and the use of Himalayan singing bowls can best support the process of uniting mind and body in a relaxing and energising experience. Yoga & Sound has been launched at the Yoga Show Manchester in 2014.
After a popular workshop last spring Szilvia is back at Pure Yoga this autumn to BATHE us IN HARMONY during her “Introduction to singing bowls workshop” and “Yoga & Sound Masterclass”.
