Sound Healing and Sound Bath Meditations with Gary Posner

Gary Posner

Gary Posner

Gary Posner, an award-winning composer, musician, educator and Certified Sound Therapist, hosts Sound Bath Meditations in the Westchester and Southern Connecticut area, collaborating with local yoga studios on classes that incorporate yoga and the power of sound healing. Sound Baths have been shown to reduce stress, enable deep relaxation, enhance creativity, uplift the spirit and help with insomnia.

At Harmony Yoga Studio (, in Stamford, Posner will join Harmony’s founder Carol Shwidock for From Water to Wood: Restorative Yoga and Sound Healing, on March 6, from 3:30 to 5pm. Shwidock will lead gentle movement/chi gong and restorative poses, while Posner accompanies with healing sounds. Winter is the water element in Chinese Medicine, and it is a time to turn our attention inside and restore with healing poses and deep listening. Shwidock is a Certified Kripalu Yoga Instructor, Occupational Therapist and Reiki Master.

At Flow to Fit Yoga (, in Southbury, Posner will host a Sunday Sound Bath Meditation on March 13 at 3pm. Sound Bath Meditations are a combination of restorative yoga, meditation and a sacred sound concert. Participants lie down comfortably and then are “immersed” in the sounds, vibrations and harmonics of the instruments. Gongs, Himalayan bowls, crystal singing bowls, tuning forks and shamanic percussion instruments are played in a clinically tested, therapeutic sequence to maximize benefits. Bring a yoga mat, water and a blanket, then lie down and bathe in the ocean of sound.

Posner earned his degree from The British Academy of Sound Therapy (BAST). For the last three years, he has been facilitating weekly Immersive Sound Bath Meditation for the students, teachers and staff at The American School in London, as well as regular Immersive Sound Bath Meditations at Rosslyn Hill Chapel—a 400-year-old Unitarian chapel in London, England.

At Wainwright House, in Rye, New York, Posner also offers Sound Bath Meditations on Thursdays, available at both noon and 6pm.

Locations: Harmony Yoga, 1100 High Ridge Rd 2nd floor, Stamford; Flow to Fit Yoga, 134 Main St South, Southbury; Wainwright House, 260 Stuyvesant Ave, Rye, NY. For more information, email [email protected] or visit
