Special Yoga, Chanting and Meditation Charity Event
Join Yogasphere's founders Mandy and Leo who will be joined by their special friends the Gyuto Monks of Tibet for an exclusive Charity Event!
About Gyuto Monks
The Gyuto monks fled the invasion of Tibet with the Dalai Lama. The monks represent the highest yogic skills being able to change their temperature to over 20 degrees through breath control and pranayama. Some of the world’s leading scientists from NASA and MIT have studied the monks and concluded that they can produce the lowest sounds capable of a human being and that within their overtones subtle usually non-audible vibrations are present.
The Gyuto monks chant in a deep harmonic overtone, unique on the planet that has a positive impact on the listener. To be in their presence is to experience pure love and acceptance without judgment. Millions around the world have benefitted from their music and tradition to open the mind and experience a profound and loving heart including over 100,000 revellers at Glastonbury and Royal Albert Hall. The monks have been nominated for a Grammy Award in the past and it is our honour to bring them here to The Urban Mountain, The Shard.
Yogasphere, The Shard are hosting this special event at The View from The Shard. Alongside a mindful open level yoga, meditation and mindfulness yoga class, the monks will be offering chanting, blessings and a deep connection to the monks tradition of love and compassion. You will connect to the sacred through the Tibetan chants overlooking London. A one-off event not to be missed! Enjoy the panoramic views over London while practising at 1016 ft (310m).
Set Your Intention
Mandy shares 'It's such an honour for us to bring this event to you. The monks align and resonate with us as they embrace both the feminine and masculine in spirituality and the serenity and compassionate work they are doing is profoundly needed in the world right now. The silk thread of their tradition and legacy reaches us now to add to the tapestry of our modern practice of yoga here at Yogasphere'
Leo adds 'Mandy and my yoga journey began many years ago all the way back in Goa and which eventually through the most extraordinary synchronous events formed into Yogasphere. It is such a culmination and apotheosis for us to be able to bring his Holiness the Dalai Lama's monks here to practice with us. Remember to manifest whatever you heart desires. So much is possible for you still and we look forward to seeing you up here'
We open the practice with a mantra that was created by a female deity that the monks follow. We have seen many instances in the modern world that women are not safeguarded at work, politically and socially. Woman represent mother nature and often if like nature when not protected, they are open to abuse as has been reflected in the recent #metoo movement. To protect though does not mean to be controlled. Yet as the monks and our founders will share with you, an open heart leads to an open mind where so much is possible for you.
Fittingly, as inspired by the deity that form part of the monks tradition, Mandy will open the class with a sequence that shows that the balance of the feminine and its equal integration and merging with the masculine. This merging with the masculine representation of spirituality is offered as the class closes with a grounding guided meditation by Leo. Be enlightened by this event.
We look forward to receiving you and you to embrace deeper explorations in yourself as you prepare for transformational changes at the Urban Mountain, The Shard.
