A ceremonial celebration on the longest day of the year, with kundalini yoga and meditation, a delicious kakaw (cacao) brewed with seasonal flowers, and a long deep sound medicine journey.

We'll be welcoming the Summer Solstice solar energy to charge our prayers together, the channel of our life force energy clarified and amplified by the power of the Sun. Gathering together to tend to Life and Beauty, Peace and Joy.

There will be a guided passage to focus on honing your intention for the summer season too, to seed into your subconscious flow toward fruition.



We will share a ceremonial brew of the plant Kakaw (a Mayan spelling of Cacao), with honour to traditions Toltec and Mayan. Kakaw opens the heart, connecting us to the ancestral wisdom in our blood, to our sensuous creativity and inspiration, and to the unseen realms. She is a grandmother plant for bringing about equilibrium and elemental connection, for supporting emotional expression, illuminating the shadows, and celebrating the bliss of existence.

The Kakaw we will be communing with comes from an ecological organic plantation in the ancient Lacandona jungle of Chiapas, Mexico, where it is lovingly tended by a Mayan family and prepared with the intention for it to be shared ceremonially.


Kundalini yoga is a tantric practice for connecting with the guidance of your soul, expanding in awareness, brightening your inner light and uncoiling toward your greater potential. 

Kundalini yoga has profound effects on recalibrating the nervous and endocrine systems, increasing vitality and opening the channels to your higher wisdom and embodied knowing. We develop strength, flexibility and coordination, improve the function of our organs, nurture intuition, access states of deep meditation, stimulate powerful detoxification and much more. 

Working with pranayama, asana, mantra, mudra and meditation we circulate our life force energy, removing obstacles and healing energetic blocks in the body as we go - blocks which may be memories or imprints from this lifetime or those inherited from ancestors or past lives.

Increasing both the sensitivity and resilience of the nervous system, we open up to a vaster range of perception and projection, in ways that may seem extraordinary. We can then listen with more clarity to the inner guidance of the soul and intentionally recode our bodies - amplifying what's already flowing well in life, and harmonising what's needed to support ourselves toward a greater life experience.

The classes are open to all ranges of experience and ability.


A deep meditative journey with the harmonising frequencies of gong, crystal and himalayan singing bowls, drums, voice, chimes and more.

Allowing you to relax deeper into your being, to release blocks, rejuvenate on a cellular level and experience your vaster consciousness.



My name is Annabelle, blessed also with the name Charanbani Kaur.

My path is devoted to the healing and creative arts, supporting people to come into greater presence and to engage with life with more passion, ease, curiosity and confidence. For this, we work towards optimising physical health, creative flow, connecting with spirit, and allowing the heart and soul to lead with greater clarity.

I primarily serve with kundalini yoga and meditation, sound medicine, intuitive storytelling, self-enquiry and holistic massage, accompanied by various plants.

This line of work is ultimately about finding balance. Of solar and lunar, personal and impersonal, infinity and finity consciousness, earth-water-wind-fire-ether. It includes detoxing physically and emotionally, reconciling and releasing tired memories, finding greater flow with creative energy and joy, and stimulating sensuality. We develop our relationship with the soul, and we become more awake to the ways in which wisdom and guidance is being transmitted in each moment.

Alongside my studies and certifications in kundalini yoga and sound healing, my approach is informed by:

- nearly 20 years of study and practice in various lineages of yoga;
- living and studying in the mountains of Chiapas, Mexico for the past few years, learning with nature, wisdom keepers and native medicine practices;
- studies and trainings in the neurophysiology of complex ptsd and its application to embodied practices, alongside my own lived experiences;
- over 10 years of guiding people in intuitive participatory storytelling;
- certification in holistic massage with a combination of TCM and Toltec techniques;
- trainings in energy healing and channelling;
- a background in theatre and the performing arts, as practitioner and teacher, with a BA from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama

I'm in deep gratitude to my many teachers and guides - human, plant, animal and mineral - with whose perspective and company I've had the fortune to be gifted. 



"As guide, Annabelle's expertise will make of your journey a comfortable and safe space from beginning to end, without a doubt in good hands for the powerful kundalini yoga. A beautiful Cacao ceremony and the tapestry of sound harmonisation driving my imagination vividly wild. A majestic inner exploration with unique transcending qualities."

“Really lovely and enlightening journey, both Annabelle and Arjuna were great hosts. The sound healing at the end was incredible and I really enjoyed learning about the magic of kakaw.”

“Such a beautiful evening, so touched by all of the love that was offered into the room. Thank you again for a deeply nourishing evening.”
