Singing Bowl Meditation (virtual program)

Virtual (online)

Singing Bowl Meditation (virtual program is available 24/7)
Enjoy a Singing Bowl Meditation Session -available 24/7. After a hearty welcome, Yogi Steven's session is wordless Please watch here

If needed, the introduction session is available here (Watch Here)

Both variations are presented by Yogi Steven Russell of Becoming Sound Yoga

We hear about self-care, mindfulness and meditation practices more often these days. These positive practices have been in use for thousands of years to bring lives into balance. Stimulation of brain waves brings focus to stress relief. You may find that using singing bowls will help calm thoughts, relieve tension, and help you become more conscious of your breathing. This consciousness may promote a sense of inner calm and relaxation.

Steven Russell is a certified Yoga Teacher and professional musician. Please enjoy the accompanying Personal Wellness videos in this series, which will be available to watch on the Monmouth County Library’s YouTube Channel.
