About the Event
Sound is an ancient remedy rediscovered to counter modern day stressors. Sound therapy has the ability to bring comfort, rest and improve overall health and wellness for mankind. The benefits of sound therapy are greatly supported by scientific research.
“If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiological functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.” - Dr Mitchell Gaynor, Director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in New York.
This course is for those who want to learn how to use the Tibetan singing bowls for yoga or healing sessions, incorporate this ancient instrument into their personal spiritual practice, or become a sound therapist. Students will be given ample time for hands-on exploration and immersion in the world of sound and vibrations. The training will be conducted in a small group of six for more personalised coaching.

About the trainer: Stanley Lim
Stanley's interest in sound healing was sparked after receiving a Tibetan singing bowl sound bath from his friend. After the session, he experienced sound sleep like no other. He started to explore and do extensive research on the therapeutic value of sound vibrations, a journey that led him to various countries to study with singing bowl and gong masters. His current research focuses on the use of sound with health issues such as pain management, cognitive ailments like dementia and Alzheimers, and mental health issues like depression.
Stanley is an experienced registered yoga teacher (E-RYT500) with almost 20 years of work in yoga and holistic wellness. He incorporates the singing bowls and gong in his yin yoga classes and special workshops, and was recognised as one of the forerunners for popularising nada yoga in his previous company. He launched his first Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Pure Yoga Singapore in 2018. Sound therapy was one of the modules offered in his Yin Yoga Teacher Training, a module that was well-received by the trainees.
Testimonials from Stanley's first Sound & Chakra Training (Aug 2019):
"A fun, fulfilling, restorative, surprising and knowledgeable journey during the training that everyone got to try the bowls. Especially during gong and sound bath, I experienced things that I never knew could happened. I’m addicted, or rather fell in love with, the energy when Stanley plays his gong, it makes me feel so calm and restoring, which no other gong bath can. My chakras felt well balanced too and I feel awesome after each lesson." - Ellis Yeo
"Stanley is a dedicated and passionate teacher. His Yin teacher training modules are well-structured and thoughtfully designed. It is thorough and packed with information, yet practical and interesting. Stanley’s friendly and humorous way of imparting his knowledge and experience makes his teacher trainings accessible to everyone, regardless of their backgrounds. I learned a lot, met lots of like-minded individuals and had lots of fun doing this teacher training! Thanks Stanley for conducting this teacher training and for being such an inspiration!" - Henry Phua
"The whole training was very insightful and inspiring. Through this training, I have a better understanding on yin theory, Traditional Chinese Medicine, anatomy and fascia. Also, I had an amazing experience learning how to play the Tibetan singing bowls. The sound and vibrations of the bowls soothe the mind and body, bringing me to deep relaxation. It was an excellent blend of the physical and spiritual side of the practice." - Lim Peichoo
"I highly recommend this training to anyone looking to either deepen their yoga practice or take their practice to a next level to become a yoga teacher. As a teacher, Stanley is always full of energy. So knowledgeable and always ready to give. He is so passionate about what he teaches, and that is contagious! We all graduated from the training looking forward to becoming good teachers. The sound and chakra module was my favorite because sound therapy was totally new to me. The hands-on experience during the training gave us an opportunity to work on one another and deepen our understanding along the way. I especially like the mantras that were taught during the training. I still listen to them everyday! Thank you Stanley!" - Angie Tan
