Singing Bowl Sound Healing


Stay connected as we are deciding our dates for our next sound healing training happening in Oakhurst, CA in Summer 2024. Dates announced soon. 


I loved my sound healing teacher-training experience with Shawna. My passion + understanding for sound healing has increased immensely since completing this training and I owe it all to her and her amazing, inspiring attitude!

 Sound Healing is using sound in a sacred way to bring healing: it is done through creating a bath of vibrational energy for healing. Mother Earth provides sound healing for us every day: the ocean plays a rhythm to teach us to flow, the birds sing a song to help us  invite back the song of joy and expression in our lives, thunder can bring harmony shaking out all that we are holding on to that does not serve us: all of these vibrations provide healing. The universe is singing. Can you hear it?


Sound Healing works based on sympathetic resonance. All frequencies have a correlating sound. When we play or say a positive vibration, we become it. A sound healer’s job is to provide the opportunity for sympathetic resonance to take place to provide   harmony. Sound Healing affects all things and can be done on all things. If a plant is sick or dying, it can be re-tuned by using sound healing. Just as if you are sick or hurting. Sound can be used to help bring balanced, positive resonance to food, objects, places, things, people, animals, any and all things as everything is vibration and sound healing is vibrational healing.


The sound healing facilitator program enables the individuals to provide diverse and varied sessions that use sound healing to balance the body, mind, and energy.  Students receive free access to sound healing community classes offered at the studio during the time of study. Mentorships + internships available upon graduation to provide extended growth and  job experience while giving back to the community  at a well established, 5-star rated, voted "Best of" Yoga Studios in various publications along with various other accolades. 


 This  course is open to all people with little to none to vast experience with sound healing. Each class focuses on s tuning the self and   learning how to play/practice playing various sound tools in a hands on way for the self + others. The student will graduate with vast knowledge in various sound tools and healing instruments + leave prepared to use this knowledge to facilitate healing sessions for the self + others. Aside from in class learning, trainees will engage in a practicum to gets hands on experience in a real life setting.  The practicum includes co-leading sound healing circles, classes, one-on-ones  at the studio. Graduates also will get the opportunity to apply for  an internship upon graduation. No musical experience needed. It is important to note that sound healing is different than making music or playing an instrument for pleasure or entertainment purposes.

Singing Bowl Sound Healing

“ Shawna had a diverse/dynamic group, with each student taking the training for a different reason & had a varied way of learning. This is a challenge for any instructor, not just Shawna; however, she and the group flexed to get the most of our training. We learned the basics (gongs, bowls, chanting, chimes, drums, tuning forks), went outside of our comfort zone to learn about ourselves and ended up with a honest and supportive sound healing family.”

Why sound healing?


Sound can be used to synchronize our energetic  body, physical imbalances, emotional disturbances, and fluctuating brainwaves by providing a stable frequency which the brainwave can attune to.

Largely supported by modern science research yet dating back thousands and thousand of documented years from various cultures throughout the world, sound has been used as a healer since the beginning of all things for sound is the beginning of all things


 "By using rhythm and frequency, we can entrain our brainwaves and it then becomes possible to down-shift our normal beta state (normal waking consciousness) to alpha (relaxed consciousness), and even reach theta (meditative state) and delta (sleep; where internal healing can occur)." with spirituality to come back to the source of what you are. 


Aside from the official certification, this course brings the opportunity for self growth and understanding, collective community, and wisdom of your self as frequency.

Sound healing happens even if we do not hear the frequency. We do not need to HEAR it to heal. It is vibrational. So a deaf person and a person with full range hearing, along with a dog, and a plant all have the same effect of the sound healing session on a vibrational level: even if  we cannot hear the same frequencies, the healing still happens. The “hearing” of it makes it more tangible, and brings a whole other string of benefits but it is not necessary.  The teachings and shifts, of course, are individual and based on the tuning of the person, animal, or thing and its frequency but the physically hearing it or not, does not matter.

Neurons in the brain respond automatically to three things (1) what we hear (2) what we smell (3) what we see. Listening is vital to healing. The neurons in the brain translate the signal of what we are hearing into vibration which affect the center optical nerve of our third eye. This happens regardless of if we are hearing signals of negativity, criticism, gossip or positivity, love and hope. Everything you listen to you become.

Benefits of Sound Healing

Image by Manuel Cossio

The benefits of sound healing are vast as this  form of ancient therapy is scientifically proven to balance the mind and body providing healing and balance on a mental, physical, emotional, energetic, spiritual, social, and aesthetic level.  


Research has proven sound healing has helped with countless diseases and sicknesses because it rearranges ions on the cell membrane, helps reprogram the subconscious and helps rewrite the DNA. Sound penetrates deep within all the vibrations that make us up and change us on a cellular level. We have 97% of unused (or “junk”) DNA and sound healing speaks to this part of us.  Sound healing instantaneously altars the body’s biochemistry and brings the organs, muscles and nervous system into balance. It creates an altered state of consciousness which sets new thought patterns and creates old habits.
