We took a Bath in Sounds of Ancient Instruments!

What a unique experience it was when on Sunday (10 September 2023) Natalie Grace, a Sound Therapist brought a selection of her specialized instruments to our yoga studio in Hornsby.

The workshop started with Franziska leading us into some gentle stretches and smooth movements to get our bodies into the spirit of the coming hour of Savasana! Natalie then took over after we all found a comfortable position on our mats with legs and head supported.

With her Tibetan Singing Bowls, Crystal Bowls, monochord and many forms of chimes and drums, Natalie soon immersed us into a world of sound, harmony, melody and inner quiet. It was literally like bathing in sound!

The most stunning effect for me was when she moved around while playing her instruments. All of a sudden sounds were coming from everywhere making me think of space and time and sinking deeper into my relaxation. Since Natalie is a fully educated musician and singing teacher, it was only natural for her to use her beautiful voice to add even more variety to the soundscape.

Once we had re-entered this world after our sound bath with our newly cleansed minds, we were able to explore all her instruments, ask many questions and try one or the other sound ourselves.

Natalie has kindly agreed to be available for us again next year in March. I will definitely be part of the experience again!
