What do you do when your usual yoga studio is closed? When the meditation center has shut its doors? When things feel crazy, uncertain, or just plain wrong? This is what a home practice is for. Home practices make routine and discipline possible at all times. They ensure that no matter what else is happening in the world, you have the tools and space to ground yourself in the present.
The most important tools are the techniques you rely on for a strong everyday yoga, meditation, or mindfulness practice. In addition, it helps to have the right singing bowl. Use it to clear your space, mark the beginning and end of your practice, or enjoy some soothing sound therapy.
What matters most in a singing bowl? Sound, vibration, aesthetic, size? We got a head start on picking the perfect singing bowl for your home practice space.
The Quiet Corner
If you’re like many other people, you’ve had to improvise a space. Maybe one corner of the office, den, or bedroom is now a contemplation space – and that’s okay! Make tight spots all yours with our placid Blue Colour singing bowl. The unique finish is calming but adds character to space.
Since kids love colorful, shiny objects (this bowl has both), they’ll want to play it, too. Therefore, it’s a top pick for teachers and families.
The Modern Minimalist
Are you inspired by sleek, elegant lines? Is a singing bowl all you need to recharge energy levels and boost confidence? Then our Power and Strength singing bowl will fit right in at home. The smooth black finish is tough to make, but we think Silent Mind’s artisans have done an exceptional job.
The Everyday Meditator
Meditation and mindfulness are no big deal; it’s just your lifestyle. You probably don’t even have a dedicated space for your practice. For those who love a singing bowl that sounds and looks good absolutely everywhere, you’ll love the classic, bestselling Balance and Harmony design.
The Yoga Lover
Yoga studio? Your home is a yoga studio. There’s always space to roll out your mat, and you don’t call it ‘naptime’ – it’s just savasana. From pranayama to chanting to hours of relaxing yin, the Peace Mantra singing bowl will be right by your side with an inspiring message.
Some of us are just more anxious than others and crave safety, security, and stability. The truth is, you can always feel somewhat safe in your body, no matter what’s going on outside. At least, that’s according to those of us who work on the root chakra. Our Quartz Crystal Root Chakra singing bowl emits just the right note to help you open, balance, or clear the lowest chakra.
