Tibetan Singing Bowls Concert

The Denver Botanic Gardens will be hosting its annual Tibetan Singing Bowls Concert to help you relax and get away from all of the holiday stress. Tibetan singing bowls are musical instruments that have been used for thousands of years to promote healing. Bring your yoga mat, a blanket, and your cluttered mind for a relaxing night of sound healing.


Denver yoga instructor and sound healer Chris Anne Coviello and her husband Jason Coviello will be performing together in this warming winter concert. The concert will begin with Jason playing his Hang Drum, which is a very rare steel drum that some say sounds like a stringed instrument. Jason’s Hang Drum is tuned to notes that vibrationally correspond to the heart chakra. When you hear this drum, you will be taken on a heart-opening journey.


Jason and Chris Anne will then begin playing the Tibetan singing bowls, which are tuned to musical notes that correspond to the different chakras of the body – restoring your balance of energy. Since the body is made up of mostly water, the vibrational effect of the Tibetan singing bowls feels like a full body cellular massage.


So come, relax, close your eyes, and drift into a state of calm. Make sure to wear comfortable clothes and bring a yoga mat or blanket so that you may lie down. As your chakras re-align, breathe peace and enter the profound state of physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
