How does the singing bowl work?

The effect of singing bowls can range from improving the immune system and balancing the chakras to reducing stress and anxiety. When the gong or the “Ooommmm” of the singing bowl sounds, concentration increases. As sound is a very powerful medium, maybe even the strongest of all, as it changes our mind into 2 states of consciousness, a deep relaxation occurs. Dopamine, the happiness messenger, is released. Since our body consists of 80% water, the vibrations can penetrate deep into the tissue. This results in deep relaxation. Blockages, tension and pain dissolve.

Singing bowls will certainly make your yoga exercises an unforgettable experience. Try it yourself. Have fun!
