More Info. on Sound Healing
The human body, and all things in our Universe, are designed according to harmonic principles of varying geometry, pattern, and frequency. Everything is sound, that is, everything is vibrating and has a waveform. In understanding the relationship of sound to material form- the study of cymatics- we can begin to positively affect the well-being of the body through the appropriate use of sound and vibration. Some of the key aspects of this modality include resonance theory, cosmic superimposition, five star geometry, solar harmonic/fibonacci/solfeggio scales, and ideal nervous system tuning through the perfect 5th interval (the proportion 2:3 which the human body is designed upon). Use of meditation, vocalization, mantra, and interval training are some key components of this modality.

We are the leadership team of Muse Bellingham. We have all been part of the overall Bellingham Dance community for several years (in fact, between the five of us we have 30+ years of dance experience!).

Inspire Studio Reviews

  • Julia Moss ★★★★★
    This historical one room yoga studio is a beautiful place for a class. Instructors range in style, class time, and difficulty but owner Ruby Koa does a beautiful job filling her space with love. Drop in for a sweat at the noon power hour on Tuesday or Thursday, start your weekend off right with a free meditation class Friday afternoon or ever try the new aerial yoga class offered with silks. Inspire is an incredible place to find community and spirit.

  • Ali Michelin ★★★★★
