Science has confirmed that sound can directly affect mood, brain waves, the nervous system and body chemistry. The vibrations of singing bowls stimulate the body to help produce the alpha waves that are present in the brain in deep relaxation. Singing bowl, also called healing bowls, can be traced back to Asia as early as 2000 B.C. They are made of an alloy of 7 different precious metals, creating a range of different sounds and overtones.
Celeste is a certified yoga teacher with the Yoga Alliance and has been trained in Gong Meditation and Singing Bowls by Joy Lasher. During their time together, Celeste learned about various playing techniques of Tibetan singing bowls, crystal bowls and gongs, as well as how to incorporate them into yoga classes, group singing bowl/gong classes and private, one-on-one sound meditation sessions.
