Of all existing forms of vibration, sound is the easiest for humans to experience because it is easily reproducible, even if only by voice.
Sound has always been a fundamental tool for improving human health and for the practice of spiritual practices.
Sound propagates much faster in water than in the air, and as we know, the human body consists of about 70% water.
All organs of the human body and every single cell vibrate, emit a certain frequency and absorb frequencies coming from outside.
In our workshops we therefore use Tibetan singing bowls, gongs and tuning forks.
Through their natural physical vibrations, Tibetan singing bowls produce a harmonious sound that can benefit body, mind and soul. They are able to restore harmony when the psycho-physical
vibrating balance of a person has been altered by events such as stress, fear, traumatic events.
Some research has shown that when singing bowls sound, they emit regular and synchronized alpha waves, characterized by frequencies between 8 and 12 Hertz: these waves can be perceived in the
brain during waking up with closed eyes or just before falling asleep.
Tibetan singing bowls are available in different sizes and they are vibrated with a wooden stick. They are made of seven metals representing seven planets, which are related to the ancient conception of the universe (hence the name of the weekdays): Gold (Sun), silver (Moon), mercury (Mercury), iron (Mars), tin (Jupiter), copper (Venus), lead (Saturn).
Tibetan singing bowls and gongs accompany our yoga workshops. The sound helps to (re)establish or balance the balance of the seven main energy centres (chakras) of the body.
Specific yoga postures (asanas), targeted breathing, mental alignment to the specific region of the body and the appropriate frequency, which is radiated through the singing bowls and gongs, help us to bring the energy system into balance and strengthen the individual energy centres.
The sound of the gong also has a very calming and balancing effect on body, mind and soul. The whole body resonates and absorbs gong frequencies.
We use both the Tam Tam Gong, which produces sounds connected to the element earth (root chakra) and the element water (sacral chakra), and the Feng Gong, which produces sounds connected to the element fire (3rd, 4th and 5th chakra) and the element air (6th and 7th chakra).
