Singing bowls & gong meditations, Wed/Fri, 7:00 PM

We are happy to offer you Himalayan singing bowls meditation (every Wednesday at 7:00 PM) and Gong meditation (every Friday at 7:00 PM). Welcome to experience it!

Gong is an ancient instrument of healing, rejuvenation and transformation. It produces a strong sound wave, almost tangible to the touch, which stimulates the physical body by influencing the surface of the skin and every cell.

Gong releases tension and blocks in the body, stimulates a higher functioning of the glandular and nervous system, increases prana and improves its circulation. It also works deeply with mental, emotional and spiritual bodies purifying and calming the mind.

Himalayan singing bowls have been used for centuries for healing and meditation purposes. They create a range of sounds to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of diseased and out-of-harmony parts of the body, mind and soul.

Our sessions are not directly connected with any spiritual traditions, use the power of both gong & singing bowls, last for about 1 hour. You will lay down in Savasana with your body being totally relaxed and your mind concentrated on the breathing or deep gong / sophisticated HImalayan singing bowls sounds. Entrance fee is 300 THB.

We will start right after our evening yoga class (you can visit both events in a row). Welcome!

P.S. Note we also offer private sound healing sessions including sound bath & massage with singing bowls, gong and other instruments. Please check our therapies list for details.

Ashtanga Yoga self-practice in Koh Samui

Inspired by our recent Ashtanga Yoga workshop, we are excited to start an experimental project in Yoga House & Spa for those who practice this style of yoga (as taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and R. Sharath Jois).

Starting this week, you are welcome each Monday, Wednesday & Friday* at 6:30 AM, to join our self-practice classes! It means there will be no teacher and you can do your sequence on your own pace like at home and share a group energy like at Mysore classes.

You can bring your own mat or use one of those we have. Your participation is donation based and no booking is required to join. Please don't be late as we will close the entrance at 6:30 and start to practice regardless somebody has come.

P.S. Please note the yoga style in use for these classes is limited to Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga (by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois). You need to have at least some basic experience in Ashtanga Primary series and you are the only one who's responsible for what you're doing on the mat and its consequences.
