Relaxation and focusing on the sound can have a calming effect, bring you more into the present moment, and help to create a deeper relationship with Self. Instruments you will experience include crystal bowls, Tibetan bowls, gongs, koshi chimes, seed chimes, and thunder sticks. **Participants are welcome to bring props or yoga mats to sit or lay on.
