Welcome to
Oceansound

We created Oceansound in 2017 because we wanted an event that was all about yoga. We want Oceansound to be fun and inspiring but also diverse and inclusive of the English speaking yoga community in Taiwan. We want Oceansound to be accessible, and an opportunity for sharing and discovering all that yoga is and can be.

Community

Oceansound brings together the broader community in Taiwan to share our passion for yoga, meet new people, and discover inspiring experiences that have the power to change our lives!

Healing

Oceansound's Wellness Sanctuary will once again offer healing activities such as Reiki, Massage, Energy readings, Tarot card readings and more.

Teachers & Classes

We want to welcome back many of the teachers that help us make Oceansound amazing every year. We're also welcoming wonderful new people too! For teachers, our intention is to create a space that allows them to share their personal passion for yoga. For guests, our intention is to create space where you can experience the variety and diversity in yoga—connecting with teachers who inspire you personally.

[With Co-teacher Leonie] Yin yoga is a contemplative embodiment practice in which we explore the deep fascia networks of the body and the meridians including ligaments, joints, bones.

Longer held postures give us ample opportunity to explore our inner landscapes, create space and bring prana and kindness to our edges. Additionally, healing sounds can permeate our biofields, enhance our meditative states and transmute energies. Malabika guides us through yin, Leonie provides soothing sounds and together we transcend into a deeper state of consciousness.

Meditative Mandala: Drawing the Center

Sunday 10am | Big Tent

Mandala (Sanskrit: circle) art is an abstract design that is usually circular in form. Generally, we start drawing mandala from the center point by using any shapes, forms or symbols we desire. In essence, mandalas represent the connection between our inner worlds and outer reality. We can design a mandala to symbolize a state of mind that we are currently in. They are great tools for meditation and increasing self-awareness. Cultures around the world use mandalas in their spiritual practices such as Tibetan Buddhism and Hinduism. For this 40 min workshop we will spend 10 min learning some simple patterns for inspiration, then 30 min to play with geometric and organic forms to complete a unique mandala art that express your sense of self and your point of view.
