Yoga & Sound Healing Journey – Nandis

WELCOME TO THE TEMPLE OF SOUND
This is a place of joy, surrender and deep exploration where you are safe to connect with yourself.
Our purpose here is to create this safe space for you where your body may relax, your heart may open and your spirit may soar. We know that sound has this power to create the space where healing occurs naturally.
***
The Nandis are Ehsan, Irina and Hitesh. In coming together from three different cultures and music traditions, like the three faced god, the sound elements we combine create a unique sound fusion experience to beckon the soul back home, the place where our differences melt.
Our signature sound is a fusion of cultural influences spanning across three continents and traditions to create unique, soulful musical experiences.
We create synergy of sound to facilitate deep inner journeys that empower people to experience freedom, joy and connection.
We believe that music and sound have the power to remind us who we are and guide our souls back home.

WHAT IS A SOUND HEALING JOURNEY
Sound healing is a beautiful meditative musical experience that takes you on a journey of deep relaxation, healing and self-discovery, and also helps you to completely let go of your stress and worry so you can receive a re-alignment to your entire energetic body using powerful sound vibration.
It is a deep experience in which gongs, singing bowls, crystal bowls, the shamanic drum, didgerdoo, and other instruments are played in a way to promote a more relaxed mind and nervous system.
***
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT
*Yoga practice
Our 2 hour journey will begin with a gentle yoga practice guided by Hitesh, followed by a short guided-meditation to prepare your body and mind for the experience which follows.
*Sound Bath
During the Sound Bath phase of the journey, you will experience deep relaxation and a profound sense of peace and well-being. You will experience the healing power of Tibetan Singing Bowls, Gong. The healing frequencies and vibrations will wash away all your stress, tension, and cares. All you have to do is lay there and allow the healing sounds and vibrations to wash over you.
*Deep Journey
Once your body and mind ease and relax into a natural state of openness to receive, the Gong will take deeper into the journey of self healing. At this phase the beat of the shamanic drum and the sound of the didgeridoo accompanied by throat singing will guide you on an inner journey of the deep psyche where the aspects that need healing may reveal themselves. This is the phase of surrender to your natural capacity, to heal, and behold the forsaken parts of you to be embraced. Sensations and buried emotions may arise at this point as part of the healing process and as invitation to welcome and release.
*Coming home to yourself
Our journey will conclude with a sound bath with the tibetan singing bowls to gently help you integrate your journey and ease you into coming back to yourself.
We will hold a circle at the end as a sacred space of sharing about your experience as a means to ground it and prepare to meet the outside world from a new inner space.
***
WHO SHOULD JOIN
While a mindfully played Sound Bath is suitable for people of all ages, from young children to the elderly, a Sound Healing Journey the way we perform it, is a shamanic experience not intended for people under 16yo. For ages between 16 and 18, consent from a parent/caregiver is needed.
Sound Healing is suitable for pregnant women but in this case, the bowls or gongs will not be used close to the body.
No previous experience of working with sound, yoga or meditation is required.
*Please inform us before attending a session if you are pregnant, if you are currently suffering from a medical condition and/or are undergoing medical treatments so that we can adapt the session to your needs.
***
THE BENEFITS
One way sound can help create deep states of relaxation is through altering our brainwave states. When our brainwave state moves from the normal waking state (Beta) down to Alpha (consciously relaxed state), Theta (dreamlike state), and
sometimes even delta (deep sleep) we experience a decrease in heart rate and blood pressure, our bodies relax, our breath deepens, and we move into a receptive state where deep healing can occur.
Sound has profound effects on our nervous system – helping to turn on our parasympathetic nervous system which is our relaxation response. Many of us spend too much time with an active sympathetic nervous system, which is our fight or flight response… when we can activate our parasympathetic nervous system we give our
bodies a chance to relax and heal. Through all of the various tones of the bowls, gongs and other instruments, the body is offered an opportunity to resonate with a healing frequency. You are in essence giving your body, mind, and energy an
opportunity to shift to a higher frequency and let go of lower vibration thoughts, emotions, and other issues.
Some of the benefits of having regular Sound Healing Sessions:
•Stress Reduction.
•Deep relaxation.
•Reduces anxiety.
•Lowers blood pressure.
•Promotes deeper sleep.
•Balances both hemispheres of the brain.
•Cells receive a sonic massage.
•Cleanses negative energy and emotions.
•Helps to connect with your higher self.
•Increases vital energy flow, creativity, intuition and motivation.
•Removes blockages and toxins.
•Strengthens immune system.
•Helps to release and clear old self-limiting patterns of behaviour, habits and ways of
thinking that no longer serve us and are harmful to our health.
***
SOME OF THE INSTRUMENTS WE WILL USE
Each sound bath session is a different experience. Here are some elements you may expect:
*Ehsan will always use Tibetan Singing Bowls and Gongs. Besides, he may use shamanic mouth harp, Ocean, bells, Tingsha and Persian Setar & Tanbur.
The Tibetan Bowls he uses are hand made in Nepal by families who can trace their origins back to the time of the Buddha. The bowls are still hand hammered in the old traditional way and the families chant sacred mantras while they are beating the bowls. When the bowls are played, the spiritual vibrations of these mantras are released.
*Hitesh will contribute with his amazing didgeridoo, a wind instrument, played with continuously vibrating lips to produce a continuous drone while using a special breathing technique called circular breathing. The didgeridoo was developed by Aboriginal peoples of northern Australia at least 1,500 years ago, and is now used around the world, perhaps as an adaptation of traded instruments from India and/or Asia, though still most strongly associated with Indigenous Australian music. If inspired, he may use the Bansuri, his Indian flute and chant mantras.
*Irina will bring forth the earth element though the beat of the shamanic drum that is bridge between realms, taking you deep in the mysterious landscapes of the dream world to connect you to your roots. She will also use her deep voice and throat singing to ground the spirit, to help release dense and heavy emotions. She also uses breath as an instrument to ignite the fire element and her high voice to soothe the aching heart back to love.

***
HOW DO YOU PREPARE
There is no specific preparation required. It is helpful to keep well hydrated the day before attending or on the day itself if the sound bath is taking place later in the day.
***
WHAT TO BRING
*Wear loose comfortable clothing without belts and preferably with no metal buttons or fasteners.
*Also, bring your own and water bottle and eye mask if you feel you need it to help you relax and keep your eyes closed during the session.

***
OTHER IMPORTANT DETAILS
One session will last for 2,5 hours. We recommend you arrive 15 minutes before our session starts to give you enough time to ease into the space.
Cost: 200 RON
Register: Limited places. Payment in advance to book your spot.

ABOUT HITESH:
Hitesh comes from a small Himalayan village of India where he grew up in yogic atmosphere, chanting, meditating, and practicing asanas. He moved to Romania in 2018 and since then has been sharing his practices with thousands of people from various cities, however it is Bucharest where he has set up his base.
Spiritual cheerfulness often leads to an interest in music and so was the case with Hitesh. He loves to chant mantras and play his Didgeridoo and Bansuri, an Indian bamboo flute, sometimes during Savasana and other times in Sound bath sessions.

ABOUT EHSAN:
Ehsan is a free soul wanderer that has being exploring the world through the self in last 9 years.
On one side he loves nature and he is always eager to meet new people and have new experiences. On another side, he has a calm and quiet character and enjoys spending time in solitude.
He has spent traveling in South-Asia,for 7 years, out of which 5 years he lived and experienced life at its fullest in Nepal, bathing with the power and spirituality of
Himalayas and the surroundings. For Ehsan, living in Nepal was a life changing experience.
There he started working with the ancient, mysterious and powerful technic of healing and meditation from historical land of “Tibet”. This technique is called “Sound Healing” and
it happens with the use of holy objects called “Tibetan Singing Bowl” and Gongs. These holly instruments have been used for centuries by the Monks in Himalayas for ritual ceremonies and Meditation purposes.
Now Ehsan lives for some time in Romania and he would love to share and worship the life with beautiful people.

ABOUT IRINA:
Irina has her roots deep in the heart of Bucharest where she was born and raised. Her musical calling began when she was ten years old and joined a local children’s choir. It was then that she discovered the synergy of different voices coming together to create harmony. It was later in life that she widened the spectrum of her voice and discovered the deeper capacity of the human voice and of breath to bring forth sounds and notes and vibrations that enable release, healing and inner alchemy through sound. She began a conscious exploration journey in 2014 during a life crisis that has taken her to Liberating Voice Retreats, singing circles, voice workshops and has deepened her personal practice and the range of her voice.
A deeply formative experience for Irina was contributing as space holder using her voice to Sacramental Dance, the workshops held by Monica Vrabiuta from 2016.
Since then, she has organised and attended many Sound Healing Sessions at festivals, singing circles, conscious movement workshops and contact improvisation classes and is a proud member of the musical jamming circuit in Bucharest.
Irina’s journey with shamanic drumming began in 2013 when she attended an in-depth Dream Retreat with Dream teacher Robert Moss. It was then that she felt the deep calling of the drum and was initiated in dream work. She has received shortly after her own shamanic drum as custom made gift from a traditional drum maker, an instrument that is more than a tool to make sound. She feels that her drum has the capacity to open portal to guide the soul on healing dream journeys and to safely come back bringing valuable into our “ordinary reality”.
Since 2020 she is fostering the Urban Sanctuary, an art project combining her passion for poetry, sound and dance performance and drawing as tools for inner alchemy and healing,

THE HISTORY OF SOUND HEALING
Using sound and vibration is one of the oldest healing modalities and was used thousands of years ago in the Aboriginal, Greek and Egyptian cultures. The Aboriginal peoples in Australia were among the first cultures known to heal with the sound more
than 40,000 years ago. The ancient Egyptians used vowel sound chants in healing, as they believed vowels were sacred. The Greeks used similar healing chants and a variety of musical instruments in their sanatoriums. And, of course, Tibetan monks have used singing bowls, whose vibrations have been described as “the sound of the universe manifesting” for thousands of years. It is interesting to note that most creation stories started with the introduction of sound, including Vedic texts and the Bible.
Over the past 15 years or so there has been a resurgence of interest in the power of sound and vibration in healing. Interest in sound therapy and sound baths has been growing steadily during this time as more and more people, western medics included, re-discover its potential.

I attended a few classes and workshops until I became a regular at Rox Barbulescu's class, that I highly enjoy. From the beginning, I appreciated the atmosphere in the studio, all classrooms are nicely decorated, and everyone is nice and welcoming. I recommend this incubator to everyone, specifically mentioning the wide variety of classes, from yoga, pilates, to meditation, qigong and so on. Really lovely place!

Extremely grateful I've found a place like Sambodhi, cause it's more than a place which has all sort of classes, practices, workshops etc. It became a part of my personal healing and growing journey, it's where I've met wonderful human beings that otherwise I most likely wouldn't have met. I've found here support and empathy and an overload of kindness and acceptance. Regardless of which class/practice I'm going to I always feel better, happier, more relaxed, more aligned and without exception I always leave Sambodhi with a smile on my face and thankful I've made it yet to another class. So give yourself this gift that Sambodhi has to give cause it can take sooo many beautiful forms! In a world that tends to be grey, Sambodhi is a 🌈. Namaste 🙏❤️

I started at Sambodhi with the yoga sessions and I liked the energy of the place and the people so much that I became a collaborator and now I teach collage workshops. It is my favorite place to relax, find myself and escape from the daily stress of Bucharest.They have a variety of self-connecting workshops through yoga, dance, meditation, creativity, it's impossible not to find something that resonates with you.The teachers are very well trained and attentive to the needs of the students, the environment is friendly, set up in such a way that you can detach and connect with yourself. And the prices seemed very good to me.I recommend the studio with all confidence!!!! 🙏❤️

We loooooved the studio and the class! Everyone was super friendly and kind. They have several different classes at different times of the day. We did Back Pain focused Yoga for 11 EUR and it was incredible. We loved the teacher and loved that she did it both in Romanian and English so that we could understand the class. 100% recommended.
I love this place. The owner is very friendly and went out of his way to show us around and make us feel welcomed. I recommend it to anyone looking to get out of the quotidian and enjoy some peace and relaxation.

I went to Sambodhi every week in the past month, to yoga classes, guided meditation, reflexology, workshops on manifestation, feminity and family constellations and I can say that the place has a magic of its own. The energy created around there is nothing but pure bliss and enlightenment.The people coming there and the facilitators are kind, open and willing to provide help or support to all the other participants.The facilitators are mostly freelancers so the bookings are made with each of them in particular, also the payment, directly to the facilitator.The studio easily reachable by public transport, being at 13 min walk from University metro station.There is also a small room where you can change, but the belongings must be taken with you in the class as there are no lockers.I truly recommend this place for everyone looking for peace and to learn new technics for emotional self management.Hope to see you there :)

Un loc magic ✨ inspirat din natură în centrul orașului. O comunitate de oameni minunați care pun multă pasiune și iubire în ceea ce fac. Clase de Yoga adaptate pentru orice nivel și disponibilitate, pentru cei matinali sunt clase de dimineață iar cei cu ziua mai plină se pot relaxa seara după agitația de peste zi. Workshop-uri și ritualuri, meditație samanică, constelații, locul in care indiferent cine ești, poți doar sa fii, sigur îți vei găsi tribul și o activitate cu care vei rezona și îți va umple sufletul. O lume mai mica in lumea asta mare și agitată, plină de iubire și armonie creată de un om minunat. Întoarce-te la tine, la natura ta, onoreaza-ți mintea, trupul și sufletul.Namaste ✨

Beautiful studio, with great instructors and sense of community. Each instructor brings something unique to their teaching style.

Was looking for that place where you can combine mindfulness, mediation and yoga practices in one place. And the studio offered it all! Everyone here, be that staff, guest or teacher, feels like a close, warm friend ☺️ I recommend Sambodhi to all levels of yoga practitioners 💜

Great place, I recommend! The studio is a comfortable, energetically pleasant space in the heart of Bucharest. Most of the instructors are English speaking. But, on the other hand, doing yoga and further shavasana in an unfamiliar language forms new neural connections in you;) I wish you wonderful classes in Sambodhi!

Am mers de la mai multe ori, la diferite clase la Sambodhi si impreuna cu mine am mai convins 3 persoane sa vina. Cu totii am fost foarte incantati de fiecare data.Ma ajuta mult atat din pdv fizic, cu durerile de spate, cat si din pdv psihic, linistindu-ma si ajutandu-ma sa ma relaxez. Imi place programul lor si faptul ca pot sa platesc de fiecare data strict pentru clasa la care merg. Clasele sunt foarte variate.

Since I discovered the place, I came every week for a very authentic yoga practice. People in the studio are nice and friendly and have a good range of yoga classes. Although I stick to Cristina`s class because for me was the best combination of yoga movements and meditation.

Cautam un studio unde sa pot tine clase de yoga si am venit sa vad Studioul Sambodhi. Mi-a placut felul in care este amenajat studioul, faptul ca este localizat in centru, intr-o zona in care gasesti locuri de parcare daca vii cu masina, dar poti ajunge usor si cu alte mijloace de transport. De asemenea, m-a impresionat curatenia studioului, acest lucru fiind remarcat si de participantii la clase :) Atmosfera este una foarte prietenoasa, Marius are grija ca toti cei care trec pragul studioului sa fie intampinati cu caldura si sa se simta bineveniti.

Daca stai sau treci prin Bucuresti, iti recomand sa ajungi la acest studio aparte unde vei gasi oameni frumosi si calzi, gata sa te ghideze intr-o practica de yoga blanda sau sa iti ofere un masaj de neuitat :) Ofera-ti o experienta altfel si vino sa cunosti studioul. Poate te va fermeca inca de la intrare, asa cum m-a fermecat si pe mine :)
