Join the Tribelife Community for our first-ever Sauna Circle

TRIBELIFE is a nurturing community that encourages participation, collaboration and new ideas. Exploring new alternative worlds that will assist in awakening your life’s purpose and inspire creativity.

We believe that connection & collaboration is the key to a happy and fulfilled life and by launching our new socials outside of the club events we hope to encourage further support and promote wellness with music still at the focus.  

Sauna’s, and in particular the Hackney Wick Community Baths, have been a key part of our lives this winter and we can’t wait to launch the first singing sauna ceremony hosted by TIMANTI and the Tribelife family with our incredible sound therapist and Mind Like Water founder Michelle Cade who will be leading the Chakra Toning and Sauna Jam.   We’ll be using our ceremony modalities mixed them with authentic sauna practices for this very special session.  

As well as all the benefits from the sauna which include the following:

Sauna Benefits

Detoxification, increased metabolism, weight loss, increased blood circulation, pain reduction, anti-aging, skin rejuvenation, improved cardiovascular function, improved immune function, improved sleep, stress management, and relaxation.  

We’ll be adding the following:

Intention Setting

When you set an intention, it provides accountability and allows you to take control of your personal choices and life. We encourage you to think about an intention beforehand.

Chakra Toning

A powerful technique to restore balance and flow to your energy system (chakras) using vowel sounds and affirmations. No singing experience is necessary, we are simply sounding.

It also helps to create self-awareness through sound awareness and shifts us into the witness consciousness. A calming and grounding way to observe what’s going on inside us without attachment.

Aufguss Ritual

Aufguss is a sauna ritual lasting about 10-15 minutes. It’s a multi-sensory experience inside the sauna. The Aufguss master works with water to circulate heat throughout the sauna with a towel. The core elements of an Aufguss are heat, essential oils and music.

The most powerful instrument in the world…your voice!

Have you tried Chakra Toning before? I highly recommend it. Even if you think you can’t sing, if you can utter a word, you can do this and your body & mind will love you for it.

If you’re not familiar with the Chakras, here’s a little breakdown.

There are seven major chakras (meaning spinning wheel in Sanskrit) as well as many minor ones, in the Hindu Chakra system. Each chakra corresponds to specific glands, organs, and aspects of your being. 

Energy flows vertically as well as horizontally through the chakra system and nadis (energetic pathways) but emotional challenges & traumas that impact us all along the way, can cause them to become blocked or imbalanced. 

Vocal toning the chakras is a powerful way to help restore balance and flow to your energy system using your voice to stimulate the body’s natural healing process.

Toning can have similar effects as exercise, like the release of endorphins, which leaves you feeling uplifted. It gets more oxygen into the blood for better circulation, which boosts your mood. Singing and toning also help to release stored muscle tension and decrease the levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) in your bloodstream.
