60 min   Sound Bowl Meditation Class  $15

Thurs May 30th, 630 pm , Class limited to 8 seats.

Metal and Crystal sound bowls are struck individually or in succession to create a calming rhythm of music. The sound helps to clear the mind, as a way to slow down the on-going process of emerging thought that cycles from day to day. Sound bowl meditation sessions are beneficial to help passively relax the body and mind and calm the nervous system. By creating a safe space for meditation and calming the nervous system the body's cells can reset, and help function more efficiently than in a constant state of "fight or flight".

Guided mediation will be played at the beginning of the session while the music begins to guide the relaxation and visualization process. All Yoga Mats, straps, blocks, bolsters, and blankets provided.

Benefits and uses of sound bowls:
- Aid balance of energy flow in body
- Assist in grounding the body, mind, spirit
- To aid in meditation, yoga or spiritual practices
- Energy healing practices
- To create music
- To soothe upset children and babies
