Vibrational Sound Therapy
VST is a singing bowl based sound relaxation therapy technique. The specially hand-made Himalayan therapeutic singing bowls are placed on your body and used as a focal point for your attention. The complex sound of the bowls is the perfect tool to maintain your awareness as the bowls are moved along your body through the structured technique. As your focus is held by the combined stimulus of the sound and direct on the body vibration, you are allowed a break from normal cycles of thought. Many people will fall into a deep restful state during the session. As the bowls are moved through a gentle framework, the vibration of the bowls provide a soothing massage to your soft tissues, This soothing and gentle technique brings complete relaxation. Sound based relaxation therapy techniques are a growing component of complimentary and integrative medicine. These techniques are increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of conditions, Studies of the benefits of sound based relaxation therapy techniques are underway as the concept of using relaxation to help the body heal is a growing focus of a stressed out society.

About the instructor: Bonnie Cassels
After many years of resisting yoga, I finally gave in with the help of a very persuasive friend. March 21st, 2006 will forever be embedded in my memory. On that fateful day, my daughter and I took our first yoga class together. After this one class, I repeat ONE practice, I felt an immediate sense of calm and peace. Since that transformative day, twelve years ago, I still love yoga and practice it daily. Yoga has offered never ending healing for my mind, body, heart, and soul.
Within two years of starting yoga, I felt a strong desire to share the gifts of this time honored practice. Many years as a competitive gymnast and 30+ years of experience in education and education administration also lent itself to my motivation and inspiration to enlighten and help heal others through movement and mindfulness.
I received my 200 and 500 hour yoga teacher training certificates from the Yoga Center of Columbia, in 2008 and 2013, respectively. Additionally, in July 2017, I received a certification to teach Dr. Loren Fishman’s Yoga for Osteoporosis method. Although I began my journey with Anusara inspired teachers, I have a deep respect and appreciation for all yoga paths. The breadth and depth of my education have been enhanced through continued training and courses, both nationally and internationally. I work hard to ensure that students are offered the most up-to-date methods to enhance their practices.
I especially enjoy teaching and practicing Hatha, alignment-based, slow flow, and therapeutic yoga classes for all ages and abilities. It is my humble honor to serve you in a more profound way in my new role at OmTown Yoga.
I look forward to meeting you, seeing you on your mat, and joining you on your yoga journey. Together, we can work wonders.
