ABOUT MY CLASS

sound bath
Sound is one of the most ancient, effective, and accessible tools we have for healing. The human body is designed to interact with and embody sound in a powerful way that allow you to rest and revitalize your body, mind and spirit. Lay back, let the tones of the bowls wash over you, and drop into a state of relaxation through a guided sound meditation. Depart class feeling recharj’ed and renewed.

Harp: The harp, considered the most ancient of the stringed instruments, has been admired for its soothing and angelic sound. Therapeutic benefits of live harp music includes regulating stress hormones, equalizing and slowing down brain waves, inducing restful sleep, releasing physical and emotional suffering, and helping listeners to access peaceful states conducive to healing.
