What is a Sound Bath and What Does it Do?

sound bath and yoga

Sound can be a powerful way of healing the body. While this may sound like a new-age type concept, this technique of healing the body through sound is thousands of years old and is deeply rooted in various cultures worldwide.

What is the Purpose of a Sound Bath?

During a sound bath, you begin in a relaxed position with deep breathing and relaxation exercises, and guided meditation to help ease your mind. Our instructor Brooke Smokelin, the founder and director of Chakra Activation Yoga and the creator of the Chakra Activation Deck, will then play the crystal bowls to generate a visceral vibrational experience.

As Brooke plays, you will feel the sound surrounding you as it fills up the entire room. Every watery cell within your body will vibrate with the music and pattern.

This process can help you manage anxiety, soothe your nervous system, and help you block out the outside world to allow you to connect with your body and consciousness.

What Happens to Your Body During a Sound Bath?

A sound bath induces a deep state of relaxation and mindlessness where you will feel your body and mind relax, which will lower your heart rate and blood pressure.

This process will also alter your brainwave state from your normal waking state to a relaxed or dreamlike state and, in some cases, a restorative state. Additionally, a sound bath will also:

  • Generate a feeling of coherence and wholeness
  • Balance your left and right brain thought patterns
  • Stimulate your connective tissue to help release tension and trauma
  • Bring your nervous system into balance
  • Improve your mental clarity and concentration
