Sound Bath with Swan Michelle

Created by Swan Michelle, this event is a Swan River Yoga original. It is a sound therapy concert, experienced lying down, designed to recalibrate the nervous system and cleanse the energy body while in conscious stillness.

In yoga, sound, or listening, was the original form of healing, called “Nada Brahma.” Consciously, through listening, the healing benefits of receptivity are activated. The creative experience of Sound Bath will engage you and your family in active silence and a deep reset of the sacred. It is a very inviting and accessible way to experience yoga for most all beings!
