Online yoga platform, Movement For Modern Life has curated a new series of audio healing soundscapes, taking you on a therapeutic journey of physical and emotional discovery. The best part? All you need is a set of headphones, and you can experience these transformative resources anytime, anywhere downloaded via their mobile app.
Working alongside sound healing expert, Kirsty Norton, they have curated a series of sound healing audio recordings, using the application of different sound waves to bring you into a coherent state of balance and harmony. This helps calm the nervous system and bring you into a brainwave state that allows you to deeply relax and restore both your body and mind.
Each sound journey has been designed as a fully immersive experience, so you can become completely immersed in the sounds coming from all around when you’re wearing your headphones. The guided practices invite you to enter into a space of imagination where you may see, feel and discover new things, all of which are normal and natural. The experience can often take a couple of days to settle, so you can also relish in the afterglow of the practice.
Movement For Modern Life was founded almost 10 years ago by Kat Farrants with the mission to make world-class yoga, mindful movement, Pilates and meditation practices easily accessible for everyone. This new offering is an exciting step to make a practice, once limited by location, now openly available, so you can soak up the full effect of an immersive sound experience whenever you might need it most.
“Sound healing classes can transport you and allow you to be truly nourished by beautiful, immersive sounds. They are incredibly transformative and also so accessible, as you can tune in from your garden or bedroom, whenever you need to heal and recover.” – Kat
Sound healing explained
When any matter vibrates it creates a wave of sound and this can affect the body physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Different sounds evoke very different responses and, in our noise, polluted world, many people struggle to find a relaxed state of being, which can lead to increased stress, heightened anxiety and poor sleep. Sound-healing audios can be a powerful, supportive tool for our busy modern lifestyles, enhancing the relaxation response of the nervous system to enable rest.
In the context of ‘sound healing’, the word ‘healing’ refers to coherence out of a state of dissonance. Working with sound healing enhances your own body and mind’s capacity to bring you back into a natural state of balance. Some people experience deep rest, better sleep and can feel more regulated immediately. Others will become activated on a more emotional level as the sounds smooth out any tension.
There are many instruments that can be used for sound healing, including voice, gong baths, harps, chimes, drums and crystal bowls but it’s not limited to these. You might have heard, or indeed be using binaural beats or Solfeggio Frequencies soundscapes to help you rest or get creative. Sound used in this way, with clear, positive intention brings peace and harmony to the brain and nervous system and the effects can be incredibly profound.
