About the event

Join Jackie with another of our Friday night alternatives - switching off from the noise of life and family. 

What is a gong bath?

As well as the healing energies that these instruments bring, their sound ‘crowds out’ the mind space that most of us use to worry and ruminate. So they offer a great way to let go, take time away from the stresses of everyday life, and set our spirit free.

Being immersed in these remarkable sounds tends to bring people whatever experiences they need in the moment and no two experiences are ever the same. Some people might fall into a nourishing, trance like sleep. Whilst others might experience altered states of consciousness or feel bodily sensations associated with physical healing.

When we think about meditation, we often think of a quiet room filled with people sitting in a lotus position with their hands balanced on their knees facing upwards, with thumb and index fingers pinched together. 

And, maybe some soothing music in the background.  But there’s another way: a more ancient method called the gong bath.

It’s a form of sound therapy that goes back thousands of years. You might associate gongs with sumo wrestling contests, but they play a more alternative healing role during a meditation practice.

Jackie, our gong bath instructor, says the sound of a gong helps the brain reach deep relaxation - specifically the delta and theta brain wave states, which are the slowest brain waves in humans. We tend to reach these states during daydreaming or deep sleep, and they are known to aid relaxation, creativity and natural healing.

We could all use some time spent in a worry-free state. Studies show that five out of 10 Britons suffer from work-related stress at least once every year. And, it often leads to sick leave at work. A Labour Force Survey conducted by the Health and Safety Executive showed that the total number of working days lost due to stress-related illness in 2017 was 12.5 million days.

Gong therapy is now accessible on your doorstep (a pilgrimage to an eco retreat in Mexico is no longer necessary, though may be preferable).

Come to Ohso Yoga Studio and see what al the fuss is about!

Some comments from Jackie's last event❤

" I floated away to a blissful place  such a relaxing experience, I feel amazing"

"I feel totally recharged and reenergised this feeling is electric"

“…when the sound began I thought; ‘ I was floating up in the clouds"
