Singing bowls, also known as Himalayan bowls, are ancient musical instruments that have been used for centuries for meditation, relaxation, and healing.
In recent years, singing bowls have gained popularity as a tool for stress relief and relaxation, being used in meditation, yoga, and other forms of relaxation therapy.
To use one of these bowls, you hold it in the palm of your hand and strike its side with a mallet.
In addition to their use in relaxation and meditation, singing bowls are also used in sound therapy- a form of alternative medicine that uses sound to promote physical and emotional well-being. This is precisely why I enjoy using these bowls with my students, because I want them to walk away from all of my classes in optimal health- physically, mentally, and emotionally!
By listening to the soothing sounds of singing bowls, many people feel a sense of calm and relaxation, as well as reduced stress and anxiety.
Whether you’re using them in your meditation practice, yoga, or sound therapy, singing bowls are a sensational addition to any mindfulness routine.
