There are dozens of ways to utilize singing bowls in your life, and in your practice.
This incredible versatility of singing bowls can actually great a challenge for you in getting started. So many options. And then it's impossible to choose one.
Our great friend and ambassador Katja @coaching_with_katja shares with you 3 very simple ways to get started, by using them in your yoga practice.
Enter Katja: "I want to show you how I use singing bowls during my class.
I have here this beautiful singing bowl from The Ohm Store, the small Ancient Self Ohm.
What I do to start the yoga class is to place the bowl on my palm, and then I invite my student to settle in.
Close their eyes. Find a comfortable seat.
I strike the bowl once, very gently.
I let it sound.
I do this because this sound is really good for bringing the student back to the present moment -- into their body. Into the room. Into the class.
That’s why I love to start the class with one, gentle strike.
At the end, during savasana, I strike it once, and then I play it (around the rim).
Just so pretty. And the sound itself helps to relax and to stay present.
I let it ring.
And let the student enjoy their savasana.
Before I guide them out of savasana, I do three gentle hits, Let it ring.
This is the sign (anchor) that class is ending and that they can return to their body.
