Sleep is a naturally recurring state of mind and body, characterized by altered consciousness and inhibition of almost all voluntary muscles. Increasingly, as the world’s population becomes busier and more connected, the brand’s impulses are set to a habitual pattern of the logicoriented “beta” state. This mode of thinking can lead to sleep deprivation and insomnia, and can be hard to break without taking a meditative approach. Ascend Yoga Therapy combines traditional yoga classes with meditation, sound and aromatherapy to provide a holistic experience.
Gong Meditation™ will be featured heavily in the Full Moon Sleepscape session; this unique type of sound meditation aims to bring about therapeutic healing by sending out waves to vibrate the whole body, creating a soundscape where the mind has a constant sound and vibration focus, making it easier to let go of preoccupations and come back to the present moment. The full moon is said to be a powerful time for meditation, energy healing and recharging human energy field and Chakras. Practicing during this time is a time-honored tradition, tracing back to many ancient cultures that used rituals and ceremonies taking place during full moons.
Each experience offered on the GuavaPass platform has been carefully selected and is regularly tested by the GuavaPass team, ensuring the highest quality product offering for members. In addition to more traditional exercise styles, GuavaPass offers access to a realm of mindfulnessfocused studios, with key highlights including COMO Shambhala, an award-winning wellness concept focusing on the pursuit of balance; Sagehouse, whose intimate classes use the Aina Light tool for meditation, which uses powerful dynamic neural stimulating brainwave technology to help induce altered states of consciousness; and SPACE 2B, who aspire to transcend traditional barriers to bring the ancient art of meditation to the modern consciousness through the use of crustal bowls and meditation practices. Each of these practices are recommended for people who struggle with tiredness or insomnia.
