Full Immersion Gong Bath

What is a gong bath?


A gong bath is a meditative sonic experience, where the participant is "bathed" in sound waves from various gongs. The practice finds it's roots in ancient cultures and Kundalini yoga and is more recently used by sound healing practitioners. The participant can expect to be taken on a meditation journey enhanced and assisted by the frequencies of these ancient instruments. The experience will last roughly 45 minutes and led by Liz Holland, MM Percussion Performance.

Why Gongs?
As early as 4000 B.C., gongs have been used as spiritual tools to help guide meditation. A gong produces motions and vibrations that cause frequencies of difference ranges. Scientific studies have shown the therapeutic use of sound frequencies to benefit overall health and well-being. Immersion in a full gong bath takes the participant on a journey of meditation and self-healing.

This experience is led by Liz Holland, MM Percussion Performance.

About Liz

Liz Holland M.M., practitioner of Ancient Alloys, has been a percussionist for her entire life. She has performed in many capacities from classical to ethnic to rock and jazz, but has recently shifted her focus to the art of sound healing. Having studied the minimalist works of composers such as John Cage, she earned a Masters of Music in Percussion Performance from the University at Buffalo. She uses this training to compose improvised sonic atmospheres in the healing sessions, utilizing many classical and modern techniques of performing on gongs and other various metallic instruments.

Yoga as Medicine The Art & Science of Yoga Therapy Training

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 2.10.13 PM.png

What is Yoga Therapy?
Yoga Therapy—or as we call it Yoga As Medicine— is the selective use of various yoga tools — such as poses, breathing techniques, relaxation exercises and meditation, as well as dietary and lifestyle advice — to help people with virtually any health condition, physical or psychological. Because people's health and fitness vary, we often modify poses or use props to make the practices safe and effective.  In Yoga As Medicine, we perform detailed holistic assessments of each client—evaluating body, mind, spirit and environment—and then craft a personalized yoga program. And that's precisely what we teach in our seminars and teacher trainings. Yoga therapy can be used by itself or as an adjunct to any conventional or alternative medical treatment.

Join Us for a very special training with guest instructor Dr. Timothy McCall. This is a five day training workshop.

Macrame is a vintage technique of tying simple repetitive knots to create baskets around gemstones, making it a great way to "lose yourself in your work" and quiet the mind.

Also Crystals and Gemstones have unique healing properties that can help the wearer feel more calm, balanced, and focused. We will learn a little bit about the gemstones & you are welcome to choose a gemstone you feel drawn too and be guided in crafting from start to finish. Tea & all craft materials will be provided and you'll leave with a new skill, a calm mind and a beautiful piece of mindfully crafted wearable art!
