GET IT ON, BANG A GONG
Introducing the latest addition to our studio!
The Mercury Paiste Planetary Gong.
It looks as if it was meant for the place don’t you think? (Which of course it was!)
A lucky few were the first to hear it played in our special Yoga Gong and Sound session on Saturday September 26 but it will be playing again soon. Remember this is an in person event only folks, you just HAVE TO BE in the studio to experience this one… so if you are ready for your cells to happy dance, keep your eyes peeled for the next session.
What’s the planet Mercury got to do with Yoga Local?
The Gong is tuned to the frequency of Mercury.
Mercury, in the Cosmic Octave (developed and written by Hans Cousto), is calculated to be 141.27 Hz
This frequency is calculated by finding the orbital frequency of the planet and scaling it up to the audible range.
By using instruments tuned to this frequency we tap into the energy of Mercury during our sound session.
What does the symbol for Mercury mean?
The studio gong features a cross (Earth, matter) under a circle (Sun, the soul), with a crescent moon on top (connection, communication).
This represents our divine nature rising above our material nature, yielding connection and communication from above to below.
