Great to have Sara back at the Carnegie Library Hub! She will be starting her monthly Gong Baths this Autumn on the fourth Tuesday of each month.
Sound baths have traditionally been used in various forms for thousands of years to enhance our well-being and de-stress the body. The sound frequencies and vibrations stimulate the body-mind and help us to bring back a state of optimal health, balance and wholeness.
This happens because the parasympathetic nervous system, which is the body natural rest and restore response, is activated by the sound frequencies and vibrations – brainwaves slow down and we enter in a sort of dreamlike state enabling us to let go, relax and reconnect to ourselves.
The benefits of a gong bath include deep relaxation, mood improvements and stress reduction.
What to bring:
- Yoga Mat (or anything else to lay on the floor)
- Small pillow
- Comfortable, warm clothes & socks
- Eye mask (optional, but recommended)
