We are really excited to be able to start offering sound baths in Riding Mill Millennium Hall from Friday 24th September, 1.30pm - 2.30pm. Some of you will have already experienced the benefits of a sound bath but for those of you who are unfamiliar with the term we have outlined below what to expect and the benefits you might enjoy.
NB: There is no actual bath involved!
What is a sound bath?
A sound bath is a relaxing and often meditative experience where participants are ‘bathed’ in sound waves. These waves are produced by instruments such as the gong, singing bowls, chimes and sometimes other percussion instruments. These instruments create deep resonating vibrations that help people to achieve a deep state of relaxation in a short space of time with no effort other than listening.
What are the benefits of a sound bath?
People often describe feeling deeply relaxed following a sound bath. Some fall into a meditative or dream-like state, and are able to switch off from worrying thoughts, relieve tension and improve their mood.
What happens in a sound bath?
A sound bath usually lasts 45-60 minutes. You will be invited to bring a yoga mat or camping mat, a blanket, cushion and if you have one an eye mask. The idea is that you are as comfortable as possible. If you are uncomfortable lying down then a chair can be provided. You will be invited to close your eyes and simply let the sounds wash over you ( some people even fall asleep). We’ll let you know when it's time to come back to the room.
To book a place please contact Mary on 07512673046 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We are offering a discounted price for the first session in September of £10 per person. Places will be limited so please book early.

We look forward to meeting you!
