A few years ago I found myself resting deeply in savasana at a yoga class in New Orleans while on vacation. As I drifted in relaxation a sound began to emanate from the front of the room. It quickly moved to fill the room with a low vibration. Every atom in my body and the air and objects around me seemed to also vibrate with the sound. It created a feeling of oneness that was quite profound.

After savasana I discovered that the sound came from a singing bowl played by the instructor. It opened my eyes to the power of sound. Since then I have also had the benefit of receiving a Gong Bath (gongs are played and you are literally bathed in sound) and a massage treatment with Acutonic tuning forks. Each time I am amazed at the depth of this work. It quickly takes you deep, to a primal place accessed through the power of vibration.

Megan Costello, our Capitol Hill manager and a sound-healer, will bring her knowledge of this power of sound through training in Acutonics to a Yoga, Sound & Meditation Workshop with MJ Daniels this Sunday, May 1st at 8 Limbs Phinney Ridge. Join them for a “tune-up”, combined with yoga and meditation, to bliss out and connect with the power of both sound and silence.
