Just a very brief explanation

I thought this was an example of a sound bath but its just an explanation. Narrator did a good job and her voice is soothing but this is too short and no example. At least its free

All about immersion into the sounds that give

you the best night's sleep available. Rain, waves lapping on the shore, maybe chimes and light bells. You Tube is a great place to find these sound tracks.

Thank you for the definition!

Thank you for the definition! Great information if you are yoga lacking. If you don't know much about alternative therapy, this is a simple explanation of how to begin to understand. 🍀

Informative

Though we use alpha music sometimes before bedtime, did not know there is a term to describe it and it is called Sound Bath. Nice informative very short audio book by Sara Auster.

Just Informative

This was just informative, not relaxing or anything. So I'd skip this unless you are looking for an explanation.

Helpful explanations

This is a helpful explanation of something I have already found effective, with Brainwave Symphony and others by the same “author”. I’m now excited to check out her offerings.
