It’s the next wave in wellness, following on from the physical based forms of yogāsna that have been so widely embraced by the West in recent decades. The benefits of a group facilitated sound immersion and chant experience are myriad, but here are a few of my personal favourites. These sessions are a fabulous means of supporting wellbeing initiatives in workplaces with many benefits:
Shift from fight or flight mode
It’s an amazing practice to alter your brain chemistry and shift you from the sympathetic into the parasympathetic nervous system. Destress, release endorphins into your system and relax.
Experience meditation and healing
We use the sound experience to connect with more our the essence of our true nature. Science tells us that everything is vibration, including us, which we can affect and alter through the use of guided and intentional sound frequency.
Anyone can participate. If there is some reason you’re not comfortable making sound, you can simply sit and absorb the healing vibrations and use it as a means to experience a meditative state.
Community building and engagement
The energy and vibe is palpable as the group comes together to connect in the energy of the experience.
Yes, it actually is. Most people walk out feeling lighter and happier.
You’re not going to crack a sweat
No need for active wear, unless you’d really like to 😂.
July 2020 update
I recently facilitated some simple sound based practices for the online Being Superhuman Healing Series organised by the Being More Human agency. Why not explore this for your community or workplace?
Get in touch if you’d like to rock your world with a guided yoga of sound and chant experience.
