Power of Sound Season 2 Episode 2 : Sound Therapy using Tibetan Singing Bowls with Akiko Igarashi

Many of us have experienced Tibetan Singing Bowls and seen them used in sound therapy and yoga therapy. Is it really as simple as hitting the bowl to produce a sound? What can the vibrational frequency of the Tibetan singing bowls do for us? Is there a difference between a good bowl and a bad one?

Join Amelia as she discovers more about the Tibetan singing bowls in conversation with Akiko Igarashi.

Akiko Igarashi is a distinguished teacher of healing. She is a Reiki Instructor, Qigong practitioner, a Yoga teacher, and a Tibetan Singing Bowl Master. Above all else, Akiko is a dedicated student of life. The practice of inner stillness and focus began at a young age with Akiko. Born in Hokkaido, Japan, she was raised in the Eastern tradition of mindful living and the knowing of the interconnectedness of all beings in our existence. For many years, even though Akiko chose a corporate life path, the practice of cultivating inner wisdom was never far from her heart, or her mind. Akiko has walked the pilgrimage route of Caminode Santiago Compostela three times, volunteered in orphanages, and studied healing with teachers in far-off places of Nepal, India and Japan.

Power of Sound Season 2 Episode 3 : Kundalini Yoga with Gong Bath with Pamela Akasha Kaur


What is Kundalini Yoga and how does the Gong bath enhance its effects? What benefits can be derived from this practice?

Join Amelia as she speaks with Pamela Akasha Kaur on the values behind the practice of Kundalini Yoga and the Gong and how it can change lives.

Pamela is a KRI Certified Kundalini Yoga Instructor, KRI Certified Conscious Pregnancy Instructor, Gong Practitioner, Mandala Dance Practitioner – The Alchemy of Dance and Certified Reiki Level 2 Practitioner. In 2007, Pamela attended the first Kundalini Woman’s training camp in Malaysia. She was greatly inspired by the teachings of Yogi Bhajan and what it means to be a woman-the sensitivity, grace, power and nobility that we can manifest simply by virtue of being born a woman. Her life changed forever. That was when she started teacher training under KRI (Kundalini Research Institute) as Taught by Yogi Bhajan. Now a certified Kundalini Yoga Teacher she believes that a woman is the embodiment of God’s creative power Shakti. And every woman has that divine power in her own being, waiting to be recognised. Passionate in sharing her knowledge and love for Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, she now teaches in Singapore and Thailand. She tells her student that, in the same way it takes pressure on a piece of coal to make it into a diamond, without the pressure, the pain and the challenges you can;t really go to the next level. “It has been many times that my teacher put me through challenges, and I always learned how to overcome my own negative mind.” “As a Kundalini Yoga teacher I teach with enthusiasm and humour. I hope to inspire and uplift students. I believe in Healing beyond medicine. We all have it in us to be strong and healthy. The way to achieve this is by taking responsibility for our own physical and mental health. We can develop more consciousness through working with yoga, meditation and dance. The capacity for self-regulation is what allows us to handle our own states of arousal and our difficult emotions. Our intrinsic ability to evoke a sense of being safely “at home” within ourselves, at home where goodness resides.
