Best relaxing sounds and using relaxation sound machine for a yoga session
There are physical, mental, and spiritual healing that occurs in human beings because of sound, due to the fact that humans are vibrational beings. A lulling relaxation sound machine can generate and provide rain sounds for sleep and relaxation and also for meditation and yoga sessions. Certain sounds transcend even words, and allow the mind to be transported to a higher level of spiritual enlightenment. The sound of a “singing bowl” is said to heal the body, mind, and soul. The sound produced is haunting, ethereal, unique, and magical.
The commonly used and most effective sounds for relaxation, meditation and yoga sessions include:
White noise: fan white noise, rushing air noise, rain fall noise- these help to concentrate better, focus more and to mask external audio-stimulation which is a key to achieve best results during the yoga sessions.
Nature sounds: nature sounds like forest noises, water fall sounds, ocean sounds, singing bird’s sounds can be used to mask sounds and create an environment that is close to the nature and can bring a tranquil feel surrounding your meditation and yoga room.
People prefer to listen to light music while in the spa or during yoga practice. It is because light music or melodies help a person to relax and relieve stress more easily. Spa music may include soft rhythms played with the help of a musical instrument or it may include nature’s sounds like water fall or ocean waves noises or white noise.
The sound of ocean waves is often the background spa sound that is piped in, to enhance the relaxation feelings of experiencing a facial or massage. In addition, relaxing music like a rhythm played using a flute or a piano, or the sound of ocean waves or sounds of a water fall, is used in yoga sessions, and to help many people achieve quality sleep on a regular basis.
The gentle sound of crashing waves, is a sound found on many white noise machines, as it is commonly associated with sounds for relaxation. Many common sounds or noises, that are usually used during yoga and meditation sessions include the natural sounds of a waterfall, birds singing, rolling thunder storms, rain showers, ambient wind, babbling brook, pure white noise and the sounds of the forest animals.
Calming music has been used to overcome symptoms of anxiety and depression. In addition, soothing music and sounds have been known to boost optimism and generate a creative mental flow. It has been studied and revealed that when the mind, soul, and body are in disharmony, the risk of disease can increase.
Yoga is one of many relaxation techniques that many people use, to achieve mental, spiritual, emotional harmony. Relaxing sounds can be used as mediation music, which can bring a person’s mind in line with their body, so that they are in sync and functions at optimum levels.It has been observed that when most people listen to serene and tranquil sounds (like the ones mentioned above), they feel more peaceful and at ease. This is why these types of sounds are used, during a spa experience and/or for sessions of yoga exercises.
Some common benefits with practicing yoga on a regular basis include, but are not limited to: flexibility is improved, muscle strength increases, improves and protects posture, prevents bone loss and cartilage breakdown, blood flow increases, blood sugar levels decrease, symptoms of minor illnesses (like the common cold) are reduced, and balance is improved. In addition, the entire immune system is given a natural boost, and individuals experience an overall feeling of happiness and peace.
It is an interesting observation, that even though a person is consciously focused on a different task, they are usually unaware that relaxing music is even playing subtly in the background, but they will begin to feel more relaxed and at peace. This type of observation is enough evidence to reveal the mysterious connection between sounds and brain activity.
Scientists have shown that soothing and relaxing music have a positive and profound effect on the mind and body of humans (as well as animals). In fact, certain sounds and musical tones have been found to alter the temperature of the human body, as well as reduce muscle tension and reduce a rapid heart rate.
Chanting and singing have been an intricate part of mental, physical and spiritual healing for generations. It is believed by some philosophers, that the universe was created through sound frequencies, and every human being has a frequency resonance in the body. This is why music and sounds, in general, have a strong impact on the lives of the human race.
