Science confirms that sound can directly affect mood, brain waves, the nervous system and body chemistry. The vibrational sound of the singings bowls, also refered to as Healing Bowls, stimulate the body to help produce the alpha waves that are present in the brain during deep relaxation.
Yin refers to the restful energy inherent within us. Contained within our bodies are a myraid of knots, tensions, spaciousness and energy, all of which corresspond in tangible ways with our phyiscal and emotional state of being. Yin yoga opens the body through gentle held postures with the support of props to allow not only for a deep physical shift but also for powerful mental and emotional releases, realignment and trasformation. This practice will help you feel calm and rejuvenated.
