MUSIC OF NATURE


  • Woods Resort Almora india (map)

You charge our cell phones every night, but how do you recharge your mind?

The secret may be using breath... 

Have you noticed when the mind is calm, centred, and balanced, your breath is also even and steady?

But when the mind is nervous and tense your breathing is erratic and unstable. The way you breathe has a very powerful effect on your emotions.

What if you were able to use your breath to change or alter your emotions?

Music with an amalgamation of breath work has proven to reduce stress, gaining self-confidence, increasing energy and balancing the mind, body and the soul.

This 1 - 7 October, Sudhanshu Sharma and Chetana Meehan are heading to the Himalayas, the epitome of serenity and bliss.

On this retreat, you'll explore how breath combined with the music, brings a sense of calm and peace throughout your body...

You’ll be starting at the toes and working your way up to the head, bringing awareness to each part of the body and then releasing.

Simply allow the music to suffuse your entire body, bringing a sense of comfort, peace and relaxation...🎶
