A Sound Bath which is also known as a “Sonic Massage” is an experience in which subtle sound frequencies re-tune and re-balance your body, mind, and soul. In this article, we will describe and explore what happens in a sound bath.
What happens in a sound bath?
Adriana holds small groups of a maximum of 15 people. Before coming for a session you are asked to either bring your own yoga mat or use one available at the premises. After a brief introduction and sharing about the event’s topic and intention, each participant lies down on their individual yoga mat or sit down on a chair if there are back problems or any other mobility condition.
The session begins with a simple breathing exercise to invite a deep state of relaxation, this initial stage is usually guided by Adriana in a very soothing and gentle manner.
Listening to the sound vibrations of an array of harmonic instruments becomes an expanded embodied experience. A Sound bath does not involve water, however, this name is given to it because the sounding experience is felt throughout the whole body, similar to when having a shower and water is falling. Or perhaps even being under the rain.
Adriana works with instruments such as Crystal Singing bowls, Tibetan singing bowls, drums, gongs, chimes, and her favorite instrument, her own voice. Her voice opens your heart, softens, soothes, nourishes, and replenishes.
The session usually lasts 50 to 60 minutes however it can feel like only 5 minutes have passed. This effect occurs when we enter into the heart space, where time is perceived differently. When the session finishes, there is enough time for you to stretch and have a few moments of silence. Adriana uses this time of sacred silence to offer a cup of tea and open the space for any sharing that anyone may feel to gift to the group.
