Raise your vibration! Join us this Sunday at 8pm for a community Gong Bath LIVE through Instagram, Facebook and Youtube.
What is a Gong Bath?
A Gong Bath is a form of sound therapy where gongs are played in a therapeutic way to cultivate a relaxed state. It is called a bath because you are bathed in the sounds and vibrations. Everything vibrates at its own frequency, these frequencies can be altered causing our moods to be energised and lifted.
Introducing Chris! (aka “Indefinable”)
“Hi guys, I’m Chris and am super excited to lead my first collaboration for The Studio community with a gong spa this Sunday! I’m a lover of all things yoga, meditation, qi gong, music, personal growth, nature/adventure and travel of many forms! Of late, I’ve started to explore new ways of working with sound , along with a completely different set of intentions. I now bring a range of powerful, healing and transformative sound to the table in the current form of gong spas, sound baths and guided meditations.”
How will it help me?
Reduces internal dialogue and helps to silence the mind into a meditative state. Perfect if you’ve been feeling stressed or anxious during lockdown.
Creates a state of relaxation and releases tension from the body, an amazing way to end your week and revive you for the week ahead.
Help clear emotional and energetic blockages.
Help to promote a good night sleep, making you feel refreshed and restored
What can I expect from a Gong Spa?
My gong spas / sound baths align with my alias – indefinable. Words are not really needed (or sufficient) as it really is all about the magic of sound energy and how it will effortlessly take you on a journey elsewhere. To a place where time and space blur and where healing really can and does take place, of whatever form is relevant for you. I work with a pair of gongs, a growing set of crystal quartz and other-worldly alchemy singing bowls. The latter are infused with precious crystals, elements and metals to really take the energy carried by the sound up a number of levels. I also incorporate my hand pans as well as other mystical instruments, all of which come together to create an hour of blissful relaxation, healing and/or if you prefer, exploration of the deeper states of mind.
If you haven’t experienced a sound bath yet – be sure to check this Sunday out. If nothing else I assure you will sleep well afterward! We’ll start with a short guided breath practice to get into the present moment, just to aid your initial relaxation before we begin. This will be nothing advanced and if you’ve practiced yoga at The Studio (or online) with any of our amazing teachers , you’ll definitely be well prepared for what I’ll guide you through.
Our top tips for getting set up!
We suggest considering the following tips to maximise the experience and allow yourself to really sink into a space of peace and tranquility.
- Block the hour out for yourself and anyone attending with you. Be present, relax.
- Ensure you have either headphones or a good speaker / surround system, the sound travels well thanks to the recording setup but phone / laptop speakers definitely have their limits!
- Put your phone on do not disturb or flight mode.
- Have a comfortable place to sit or better still, lie down. Blankets and pillows / bolsters are good. Close your eyes.
- Candles / incense are also great additions to set the mood in your space.
We look forward to sharing this hour with you on Sunday and we hope you’ll take something from it.
