Sat Nam, Live Well Yogins!
Are you looking for a way to expand your yoga practice?
Interested in trying something new and a little different?
Why not take your meditation to the next level?
Join us for the upcoming Sonic Journey, and discover what a sound bath is all about!
The experience is like a sound massage for your body, mind, and spirit. Yes, you will hear the sound, but you’ll also feel it. Allow the waves of sound to gently wash over you and deeply relax.
This is a wonderful opportunity to cleanse the mind, and let go of noise and clutter in your life. It’s effortless - which is why a lot of people like it. All you have to do is to show up. Bring an open heart, an open mind, and allow yourself to receive.
What happens in a Sonic Journey?
We set the stage for your sound adventure by warming up with gentle yoga, quieting your mind with visualization, and clearing your energy channels with breath work. Now you’re ready to take the ride and let your journey unfold in a way that’s unique to you. Simply follow the sound and see where it takes you.
How does it work?
Everything in and around us is vibrating at a particular frequency, whether we can hear it or not.
Our very thoughts, words, and emotions all carry unique vibrations. We create our world and define our experiences based on those vibrations. With sound, we can positively influence how we feel and function, because those vibrations affect us on a cellular level.
Sound helps facilitate shifts in our nervous system through entrainment - a method of synchronizing our fluctuating brainwaves by providing stable frequencies our brains can attune to. It then becomes possible to down-shift from our normal beta state (waking consciousness) into alpha (relaxed consciousness), and even reach theta (meditative state) or delta (sleep; where internal healing can occur) states.
Sound also provides a pathway to stillness much like mantra and pranayam help you to arrive at stillness in meditation. It allows you to effortlessly drop into a state of relaxation, letting go of your analytical mind so you may connect with your spiritual self.
What will I hear?
All kinds of instruments! Singing bowls, bells, chimes, a gong and possibly something we invent between now and then. (Mark’s hatching some new ideas even as I write!)
The gong is especially good at engaging your nervous system, by offering combinations of overtones and undertones that create endless branches of sound instead of melody based music. Because the logical, analytical part of your brain can’t “figure it out,” it often lets go, allowing you to drop deeper and deeper into the sonic experience.
The singing bowls stimulate various chakras and parts of the endocrine system to which they are attuned, bringing forth deep rejuvenation and potential for transformation. Quartz bowls amplify the sonic energy and can revitalize your system on all levels - physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.
Sound baths are a truly unique experience - one that Mark and I are thrilled to share with each of you! Please join us for the Sonic Journey and immerse yourself in the fusion of movement, breath and sound. Let’s share this experience together!
Please reach out if you have any other questions, I’m happy to answer them!
Namaste and be well…
