Have you heard of singing bowl meditation benefits? If not, it is a form of yoga that involves the placement of your voice inside of a large bowl. By doing so, you are able to harmonize the sounds of your voice with your own sounds. You are able to reach a meditative state of mind while singing a song.

When performing this type of singing, you are using your entire body to sing the song. This is done by positioning your head and your back straight in the bowl as well as placing your feet flat inside the bowl. What you are doing is making it possible for your head, neck and back to move up and down in a smooth fashion within the bowl itself. It is like you are singing an everyday song while inside of a large bowl.
