Bio: Jeneen Piccuirro, MFA, has over 25 years of experience leading original Art, Meditation, Yoga, Dance, Sound Healing and Movement based offerings, and is a pioneer in integrating and genuinely combining these modalities to bring the body & mind into balance for long term well-being. Her skillful approach gently shifts people out of habits of escapism and avoidance into healthier patterns of acceptance and understanding, paving the way for a deeper residing peace and joy.

Crystal Singing Bowls are made of quartz and resonate to specific frequencies. They create a clear "toning" that brings a state of calm and centeredness to the body. This vibrational sound is heard and felt through the whole body and assists in the process of relaxation which can be very helpful in yoga asana or meditation practices.

The Symphonic Gong in contrast, made of a brass compound, belongs to some of the oldest musical instruments known. It has complex harmonics with a clear fundamental tone and rich dynamic overtones that literally wash over and through the body. Due to the complexity and totality of this sound, the effects are quite comprehensive and the sound in affect “re-sets” the body and mind to a state of neutral.
