Learn to play the Gong at Westgate

Learn how to play the Gong in this hands-on course in a studio full of gongs!

How to Play the Gong is for yoga students, sound healers, and therapists who have little or no experience in playing the gong.

This course will teach you how to play the Gong for relaxation and yoga classes. At the end of the course, you will be able to play a gong relaxation session for
yourself, friends, clients, and students. In this training you will learn:

  • Basic mallet and striking techniques
  • The primary playing areas of the Gong
  • Playing positions for the Gong
  • Elementary playing sequences
  • Controlling volume and experiencing rhythm
  • Selecting and taking care of your Gong
  • How the sound of the Gong relaxes and heals

You will learn how to use the mallet to play basic sequences on the Gong, and you can try out different sizes and types of gongs to discover what type of gong you enjoy best.

At the end of the day, you will be able to play a basic gong relaxation session for yourself, friends, clients, and students. No experience or musical background is required. Space is limited to allow individual playing time with the gongs.

Mehtab and Laura Benton have trained gong players in twenty different countries and have used gongs for yoga and healing the last 25 years. Mehtab is the author of Gong Yoga, Teaching Gong Yoga, and Gong Therapy, as well as the originator of Gong Yoga Nidra.

Sunday Wellness Meetup - Austin Yoga Event - at Flow Yoga Westgate

Reiki-Infused Somatic Release Breathwork with Derek Lively Join us this Sunday for community connection & take part in a transformative modality that serves to empower and realign you! Derek will guide you through a breathwork journey that utilizes NLP to help clear out the things you no longer want to hold onto, and then replace and repattern your mind into an optimized state. It is very possible that you will have major realizations and downloads, and more may continue to pop up throughout your week as you go about your days!This breathwork session has the potential to open up doors inside of you. You get to give into yourself, understand better who you are and who you want to be, and clearly see your power. We all need a break from the constant stress, confusion, and distraction of life. We all need to be able to see the light-and this will allow you to experience that. **This event will include a total of 6 breathwork practitioners, and 4 reiki energy workers that will be present. The purpose of this is to take you to an even deeper level of healing-to a place where you can see very clearly the things that no longer serve you, and be able to dissolve them. Please bring a journal and pen with you. We look forward to seeing you! Ticket is $20 for members Flow Yoga or Flowmagina and $50 for non-members (does not include cacao). .?????. ?????.?????. ????? Join us each Sunday for this unique event! Every week, a special guest will guide you through mindful activities that allow you to sample different spiritual modalities and tools to help you in your journey of personal growth. Starting at 6:30pm in the lounge, we'll start the night off with Cacao & Connection: enjoy some heart-opening cacao from the 3rd Eye Bar while getting to know the community by playing Cards for Connection games. Moving into 7:30pm, we'll head to the big room and begin with intention setting and meditation – bringing mindfulness to our lives. This will be followed by sound healing/movement as well as other activities depending on the facilitator. Following this, you can reconnect with those you've met earlier or explore new connections. Can’t wait to see you there!We love you,Derek & the Insid3out TeamLet’s stay connected and keep the conversation going!

That inner critic that likes you playing it safe can sense courage, growth, and desire, and tries to put out that fire in you by keeping you safe & small, ensuring that you won't fail.

This image shows the stages of change and growth, knowing that you will face fears, the inner critic acts as a gatekeeper before you take the leap into the learning zone, and then the bliss of grounding into growth.

Whether it be a leap or a small step out of your comfort zone, it may not be easy, it may take time, BUT it is possible, manageable & the quickest way to silence your inner critic!

Where can you push yourself today?
