Healing, has been defined as a spiritual awakening with profound impact on the physical body. This transformation of consciousness is at the core of yoga or meditation and is also the foundational principal of the Himalayan Singing Bowls (also known as Tibetan bowls.) Tuned to the vibrational frequency of AUM, the sound of Universal Perfection, the inner music of the soul that reawakens in us our connection to the universe, theories singing bowls can be used as a yoga tool as their frequencies gently penetrate and calm the body/mind to promoting a deeper understanding of the asanas.
Because the bowls work through brainwave entrainment, and our brainwaves synchronize to the frequency of the bowls (AUM) their sound facilitates harmonious breath and movement flow, helping to avoid strain and stress while holding asanas. The sound vibrations balance the hemispheres of the brain, initiate the relaxation response and increase the practitioners ability to move through resistances such as weakness, fatigue, pain, stiffness, and emotional tension. The Tibetan bowls carry the energy of the Tibetan Buddhist principal of Voidness which teaches the interrelationship of all things, so as the brain entrains with their sound the practitioner may experience both a sense of surrender to and complete connection with the universe.
