Sound Bath with Tara Atwood
at Coolidge Yoga - Brookline
Discover relaxation in a virtual environment with this unique Virtual Mindfulness Meditation and Sound Bath Experience with renowned International Sound Therapist, Tara Atwood. This practice works wonders for stress relief, insomnia, anxiety, chronic pain, and even depression.
Roll out that yoga mat (or blanket), and settle in for some mediation + sound work, a 2,500-year-old wellness practice. Ancient Tibetan Singing Bowls and healing Crystal Alchemy bowls will surround the room to create varying notes and vibrations.
Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. When our mind takes flight, we lose touch with our body, and we become engrossed in obsessive thoughts about something that just happened or fret about the future - creating anxiety and pushing us into fight + flight mode. Mindfulness is a tool to snap us back to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us. Mindfulness meditation gives us a time in our lives when we can suspend judgment and unleash our natural curiosity about the workings of the mind, approaching our experience with warmth and kindness—to ourselves and others.
Like any instrument, our bodies and nervous systems require regular tuning in order to exist in harmony. Sound helps to facilitate shifts in our brainwave state by using entrainment. A sound bath is a sacred journey that relaxes the mind and body, clears the subconscious, and activates your body's natural healing abilities.
Sound waves are said to calm the nervous system and balance the ‘subtle body,’ energy that vibrates throughout the innermost layers of the body. In addition to balancing the subtle body, this holistic practice of sound bathing has also been known to work wonders for stress relief, insomnia, anxiety, chronic pain, and even depression.
