Amber is a gift on so many levels. When Amber sings or plays their instruments, there is an ethereal, healing quality that brings a deep sense of peace–Sherry Goldstein, Owner of Yoga Sanctuary, LV

SOUND HEALING IN YOGA CLASSES
I provide intuitive, heartfelt live music and sound healing for yoga classes. I am Yoga Tree’s resident musician and one of Grace Cathedral’s Labyrinth Yoga musicians and play for over 700 people. I play in all styles of classes including vinyasa with Janet Stone, alignment with Abby Tucker, and restorative with Elise Collins. I incorporate all instruments including voice/flute for meditation/relaxation, hand drums for more energizing poses, esraj and hapi drum for cooling poses, and didgeridoo sound healings over people’s hearts during savasana or other restorative poses. I have performed at Om Rising, Wanderlust, Esalen Yoga & Music Festival, the Yoga Journal Conference, and retreat centers around the world. Rates start at $125/public class and go up for festivals and larger events.
THE BENEFITS OF SOUND HEALING
Our bodies are vibrating with sounds (that we mostly can’t hear), and when certain parts are not well, they don’t vibrate at their optimal frequency. Sound has the ability to retune our cells. You often leave a session feeling relaxed, refreshed and renewed. You may feel more energized, lighter, or that you released something. Painful knots might break open as energy starts to flow through stuck places. Your whole body may vibrate and tingle.
WHAT HAPPENS IN A SESSION
I tune the body from root to crown. I often start with shamanic Buffalo drumming that induces the theta brain wave, which gives clarity, calm and increased creativity. Esraj is a beautiful, mournful stringed instrument from India that is great for opening the 2nd chakra. I also give didgeridoo sound healings over various chakras of your body. Didgeridoo is an earthy, low frequency with many overtones that is particularly helpful for breaking up energy blocks. Then I bring in Native flute to open the heart chakra. Hapi drum and Tibetan bowls help open the higher chakras. Throughout the sound healing, I use my voice to call in healing through Sanskrit mantra and prayers, spirituals, shamanic chanting, and angelic singing.
