SOUND JOURNEY / ORGANIC PLANT BASED FEAST
Hosted By: Alex Klein
Date: Sun 23 June 2019 from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Where: Nimbus + Co
A nourishing, relaxing and delicious evening of sound, meditation and food hosted by Mark from Inner Soul Sounds and Alex of Alex Klein Ayurvedic Cooking.
A sound meditation involving didgeridoo, hand pan, and singing bowls followed by an Ayurvedic plant-based dinner. This event is open to all and no prior meditation experience is required.
Sink into an evening of meditation, sound, plant-based food and community! Let Alex and Mark nurture each of your senses with their intention to gather and share in a meal made together, taking pause to taste, appreciate and enjoy some of life’s simplest yet most beautiful gifts: food, community and stories.
A calm space to grow, let go and connect with like-minded people. Surrender into an exploration of sound with a 1-hour sound healing journey by Mark, complete with didgeridoo, handpan and singing bowls. We’ll then continue the sensory experience by sharing in a nourishing plant-based Ayurvedic dinner prepared with love by Alex.
Inner Soul Sounds grew up surrounded by the power of music. His intuitive self-exploration and study into tribal sounds created an expression for his own personal healing journey, inspiring him to share these gifts with as many people as possible. His music repertoire extends from the handpan, to percussion, crystal bowls and even the didgeridoo - being drawn to all instruments that connect the listener to the vibration that exists behind all things.
Come sit, lay back and join Inner Soul Sounds as he takes you through a series of live worldly sounds. The evening will help you gain deep relaxation and find an all-encompassing sense of peace.
Alex Klein is a devoted Ayurvedic cook with an intention to educate and inspire people to reclaim their kitchen and their health using Ayurvedic practices and principles. An advocate for cooking with love, Alex is passionate about restoring our connection to the food we eat by sharing ways to gain a greater understanding of how to nourish the body. He will empower you to rediscover your innate well-being by sharing his philosophy that if we can change the way we eat, we can experience greater health and happiness.
Please bring a bowl, spoon, water bottle and yoga mat.
SEASONAL YOGA SERIES - WINTER EVENT
Rest - Retreat - Repair - Rejuvenate
Hosted By: Eva Kiriakoff and Elaine So
Date: Saturday 6th July 5pm
Where: Nimbus + Co Melbourne
Join us at Nimbus Co Melbourne for the Winter Edition of our boutique Seasonal Yoga Series. We'll slow it down in the depths of winter as we explore the essence of hibernation - a time where we can take deep rest to rejuvenate and replenish our energy stores.
It is important to stop and recognise seasonal changes as they are happening; this process gives us a greater awareness
of time and place, and the ability to witness the present moment. Join us for a dreamy evening of restorative yoga, guided meditation + essential oils through poses at Nimbus Co
Melbourne on Saturday the 6th of July, arrive at 4.45pm for a 5pm start, 6.30pm finish.
The event will be co-hosted by Elaine So (@timeandspaceco) from Alternative Way Co and Eva Kiriakoff, our Melbourne Co-Owner, with special treats from our favourites Pana Chocolate and Ceremony Cacao. Warming herbal tea will be served, blended especially for Nimbus Co by Shoku Iku.
This is an intimate event and spaces are limited so bookings are essential.
COMMUNITY AYURVEDA COOKING WORKSHOP
By using the wisdom of Ayurveda, known as 'the science of life', we explore, learn, practice and then come to experientially understand the relationship of food to our mind, body and spirit.
We start the class with a silent 20 minute meditation to get in the 'right frame of mind' to cook. Ayurveda says the most important part of preparing a meal is the consciousness state of the cook... happy present cook = happy life-giving food!
After our minds and bodies have settled into a relaxed state, we dive into creating a nourishing meal together while learning about spices, digestion, food combinations, flavour and all the life-giving tips embodied in the wisdom of Ayurevda. We use only the best fresh, organic, seasonal food and there's a big emphasis on cooking with love and awareness, because you want to enjoy the nourishing of yourself! In each class we cook a different recipe so you can come back and keep exploring ways of creating taste-sensations for everyday of the week.
To wrap up the class, we come together and share in the meal we have made; tasting, appreciating and enjoying the simple things in life - food, community and stories. You then get a take-home recipe so you can re-create the meal and see how easy it is to nourish yourself through fresh, wholesome and love-filled cooking.
5:30pm - Arrive
5:40pm - Doors close for silent group meditation
6pm- Cooking workshop begins

I’ll also have homemade organic ghee and spice mixes you can purchase on the morning to start your new Ayurvedic kitchen.
If you do not have a meditation practice, i suggest to download the 1giant mind app on your phone (its free) and bring a pair of head phones so you can join us in the meditation.
See you there!
