Class outline

Class begin with a crystal bowl meditation and will include gentle movement for circulation and flow and move in to a few accessible seated Asanas (poses) for stretching and release. Options for all levels will be offered. Chairs will be available for those who would like them. Class will end with a 15 min Savassana, in which students will be invited to lie down and listen to the gong.

Crystal Singing Bowls are made of quartz and resonate to specific frequencies. They create a clear “toning” that brings a state of calm and centeredness to the body. This vibrational sound is heard and felt through the whole body and assists in the process of relaxation which can be very helpful in yoga asana or meditation practices.

The Symphonic Gong in contrast, made of a brass compound, belongs to some of the oldest musical instruments known. It has complex harmonics with a clear fundamental tone and rich dynamic overtones that literally wash over and through the body. Due to the complexity and totality of this sound, the effects are quite comprehensive and the sound in affect “re-sets” the body and mind to a state of neutral.
