Tai Chi + Sound Healing Meditation with Eunmi Chang

Celebrate the recent summer solstice with an outdoor tai chi and sound healing program!

Date

Saturday, June 22


Time

9:00 am - 10:15 am


Welcome the start of summer by joining Fairmount Park Conservancy and Eunmi Chang from Eunmi’s Sound Healing & Yoga on Saturday, June 22 from 9:00-10:15 AM for a one-of-a-kind immersive experience in West Fairmount Park.

We’ll start out by learning and moving through a series of tai chi exercises. Tai chi combines slow, focused movements and deep breathing, allowing us to tap into a peaceful space before transitioning into a sound healing meditation. During the 45-minute sound healing meditation, Eunmi will utilize singing bowls and other instruments to guide us into a deep meditative state. Manage your stress, improve your well-being, and literally find your grounding outside in the park.

What is a Sound Bath? Essentially, a sound bath is a meditation class with ambient sound played by the instructor that aims to guide you into a deeper meditative state. Sound baths use singing bowls and other traditional instruments to play repetitive notes at different frequencies to help bring your focus away from your obsessive thoughts. Think of it as an improvised meditative “concert” in a unique setting.

INSTRUCTOR BIO: Eunmi Chang has dedicated herself to the art of sound healing and yoga. She is a 250 HR-certified sound mediation practitioner as well as a 500 HR-certified yoga teacher. She specializes particularly in Tibetan singing bowls and crystal bowls as well as combining her sound therapy with yoga asanas/poses, breath work, meditation, chakra and aura cleansing. Her passion is to create sound vibrations that help people feel relaxed and whole. When she plays her healing bowls, the experience can be both calming and wondrous. To date, she has led over 170 sound healing meditation and yoga workshops/events and has been featured in Philly Magazine.
