The Chi Room
The Chi Room is a space to silence your mind, strengthen your spirit and heal your body. Inspired by Earth, our space is carefully designed to channel energy and work with the nature of your being. Supported by a community of integrative medical professionals, healers, teachers, and creatives our space is a refuge within the hum of city life.
By reconnecting elements of nature with Western and Eastern healing practices, The Chi Room is a sanctuary to re-awaken the body’s innate wisdom and healing.
Yin Yoga is a slower more meditative practice. While many schools of Yoga are “Yang” in nature and focus on dynamic movements and muscles, Yin Yoga focuses on targeting the deep connective tissues like your fascia, joints and ligaments.
Meditation is a practice that can help you cultivate awareness and compassion by learning to have a direct experience with the present moment. Rather than trying to empty the mind or stop thoughts, we bring our attention to those thoughts more clearly. Using various techniques, meditation draws our attention to the present moment, creating space for all aspects of the Self to show up and be, meeting any experience or sensation that arises with complete compassion.
Breathing brings fresh oxygen into the lungs and then into the blood to nourish the entire body. When the body is stressed it can affect our breathing as we take shallow, shorter breaths. Deep and slow abdominal breathing stimulates the vagus nerve which has been shown to reduce anxiety. Stimulating the vagus nerve can also help to activate the parasympathetic nervous system needed for healing and deep rest.
Sound has been utilised in various cultures for thousands of years as a tool for healing and works primarily through the principles of entrainment and resonant frequency. Entrainment through sound helps to shift our brainwave state and brainwaves typically fluctuate, by providing a stable frequency the brain can then attune to the frequency being played which can help down-shift our usual beta state (waking consciousness) to alpha (relaxed consciousness) and even theta (meditative) or delta (sleep) where deep healing can occur.
