Travelling can be an exhausting affair. Life in general can also sometimes be hard. Though I don’t intend for this article to be a total downer, it is however a well-known fact that stress nowadays is constitutive of most health issues – whether it’s just some tension in the neck or plain anxiety. Luckily, it’s become (more) socially acceptable in the West to indulge in Eastern health practices and I recommend you this spot if you’re in need of taking some time for yourself, be present in your body and acknowledge your pains and aches or if you just want to explore something new.
Vita de Lux offers a pallette of classes based on yoga, breathwork and sound. Most of the instructors are gong masters – cool, right?! I myself was surprised by the effects of an intensive gong bath; lying there listening to the sound waves and slowly experiencing the traumas of my body being lovingly stimulated.
“Blending together sounds of gongs, singing bowls, kalimba, koshi bells and other instruments, the transformative sounds send the mind and body to realms of deep restoration. As the brain moves in Alpha and/or Theta states, the sounds will trigger a sympathetic nervous system response that lowers blood pressure, slows the heart rate and relieves stress.” – Vitadelux.dk
A gong bath takes between 45 minutes and 1.5 hour and contact information for booking and payment can be found through the Facebook page along with how to access the building.
