Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa introduces singing bowl meditation
Reduce Stress and Anxiety and Increase Mental Clarity with this Ancient Ritual
Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa has introduced singing bowl meditation to its wellness offering, a Tibetan tradition thought to date back to 560 – 480 BC.
Singing bowls produce sounds that invoke a deep state of relaxation which naturally assists one in entering into meditation. The practice is designed to rebalance the body and reduce stress
The 60 minute sessions at Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa are undertaken by the five-star hotel’s experienced spa manager and are limited to a maximum of two people to ensure they are personalised to the individual.
Singing Bowl Meditation is an ancient tradition that has been heralded over the centuries for relieving stress and anxiety, lowering blood pressure, improving circulation, aiding pain relief, Chakra balancing, increasing mental and emotional clarity and promoting happiness. ￼
Guests begin the session with ‘pranayanam’ breathing exercises and relaxation techniques to prepare and calm the mind. Once relaxed, guests lie down as the instructor begins to slowly and lightly hit the Tibetan singing bowls that each emit different vibration waves and sounds. The sounds are not just heard, but are felt in the air and deep within the body creating a full body experience.
As the instructor plays the bowl he watches how the participants’ bodies react to the sounds and vibrations emitted by the bowls. The playing technique is adjusted to maximise the positive effects on each person.
Singing bowl meditation is one of many activities on offer at Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa including yoga classes, scuba diving, snorkelling, private blind dining experiences, Maldivian family feasts, excursions and various spa treatments in the resort’s Vidhun spa.
The spellbinding hotel is located on a private island tucked away in the centre of Huvadhoo Atoll, the world’s largest atoll. Just 55 kilometers north of the equator, the multi eco-award winning Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa is a barefoot luxury resort, evoking a remote, untouched paradise. Away from the teeming atolls of the north, Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa is well suited for those look for a relaxing break away from it all.
Singing bowl meditation at Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa costs $130 per person for a 60-minute session.
