Unfold with Yoga and Soundbath at the Wellness Wander Weekend in the Adelaide Hills

Saturday 2nd April, 2:30pm-5:00pm

at Unfold Yoga + Wellbeing, Mount Barker SA
as part of the Wellness Wander Weekend in the Adelaide Hills


Heather Frahn will feature a sonic journey with sound healing instruments at the “Unfold with Yoga & Soundbath” event.  Part of the Wellness Wander Weekend in the Adelaide Hills.

Enhance your wellness by experiencing the healing arts of yoga and soundbath meditation.

Heather is collaborating with Loretta Voivodich, Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher and Principal Teacher and Director at Unfold Yoga + Wellbeing

Wellness is dependent on the way we see the world and the experiences we encounter.

This experience at Unfold Yoga + Wellbeing nourishes the mind and body, as you join in community with others.

Our focus is to facilitate a calming yet active time in yoga practice that will allow you to switch off and connect back to yourself, preparing you for the sacred soundbath meditation that follows.

Connect within and create sacred space together.

The combination of yoga and soundbath meditation offers deep relaxation and inner nourishment.

Yoga is a practice that will heighten your senses and nourish your vital health, fitness, and happiness. Guided by Loretta Voivodich (principal teacher of Unfold Yoga + Wellbeing).

You will explore poses designed to both support and energise. The sequence of postures is suitable for those with no yoga experience to enjoy something new, as well as for seasoned yogis wishing to reconnect and bring balance.

Soundbath meditation is a perfect flow after a yoga class, offering a deeply relaxing and restorative experience using sound and music to therapeutically enhance the wellness of mind, body and spirit.

Like a “sonic hug” that gently wraps around you, Heather Frahn seamlessly weaves her soulful vocals with quality sound instruments – creating a masterfully crafted and beautifully immersive sound journey.

The event will run for two and half hours with warming chai tea, cacao, and a small treat of bliss balls to be served afterwards.

Enjoy home made bliss balls, chai tea and cacao drinks following the yoga and soundbath meditation.

Please contact Heather for more information if you would like to attend this private group.

Open to all women. Inclusive and welcoming.

Harmony Weavers began in 2016 in association with The Hutt Street Centre, Adelaide South Australia. The “Harmony Weavers” womens wellbeing choir was co-facilitated by Heather Frahn and Michelle Byrne from 2016-2021, with Heather carrying the group on from 2022 onwards. The Hutt Street Centre was involved in supporting and funding the group up until January 2021, and through it’s program helped to create a much needed and valued contribution to the lives of women in Adelaide who were homeless, or recovering from domestic violence, or other life challenges. The Harmony Weavers has performed several memorable and special concerts at public and private events over the years, and has had a range of members who were both clients of Hutt Street Centre services, as well as women from the broader community and society in support of those most vulnerable. Harmony Weavers has provided an important meeting place for women over its existence, and will continue to shelter, support, and celebrate women from all walks of life in an inclusive and welcoming way through the healing power of music, meditation, spirituality, sound healing, and social connection.

Soundbath Meditation at Yoga Cycle 1st Aug 2021

I welcome you to warm your inner fire this winter, with a nourishing Soundbath Meditation with me on Sunday 1st August, at Yoga Cycle, Thebarton SA.

The Yoga Cycle studio is one of the most beautiful venues for a Soundbath, especially for winter because the slow combustion wood stove will be gently burning away keeping us warm and cosy.

I love sharing the sonic vibrations from the quartz crystal singing bowls, Chinese gong, bamboo flute, medicine drum, and my voice, and feeling how they layer out into the room, like waves of sound washing over us all.

Many of us need more relaxation and restoration in our busy lives, and a Soundbath Meditation is a perfect way to gift this to ourselves ~ body ~ mind ~ soul.  A Soundbath is also a lovely experience to share with a friend or loved one.

You can book your place online here > https://www.yogacycle.com.au/event-details/winter-soundbath-meditation

Thank you ~ I am grateful for your support as I continue to journey with the spirit of music and sound.Warm Wishes & Blessings, Heather
