Yoga Nidra

We started 2020 with two concerts on January 11th. The first one was for baby’s, toddlers and pregnant women. As research has shown an many cultures have known for millennia, listening to calming and spiritual music helps in the positive development of a child. Even listening from within the womb. During the afternoon concert many children and their parents were able to listen to Vedic hymns while they relaxed in a safe and comfortable environment.

The second concert that was during the evening, adults that wanted to have a relaxing laying down session while different ancient poems by Indian saints were presented with both classical and modern instruments.
Especially for this laying down concerts, we flew over singers and composer Aks and Lakshmi from Los Angeles (USA) and we had Prewien Pandora Mishre (Harmonium) and Danielle van Driel (Harp) accompanying them.

The sold out concert was featured in AD Den Haag.

Daniële chose the beautiful sounds of the Celtic harp and decided to make music that came from her heart. With her music she creates a field of light, love and transparency, a bridge between heaven and earth. These healing sounds are used in many different ways. In addition, she has supplemented her way of giving haptotherapy with voice expression and the heart-opening sounds of the harp.
