Crash. Bang. Boom.
Before you scream shut the f___ up, just hear us out.
We’re talking about Gong and Meditation. This one-hour group class led by gong master and Kundalini yoga teacher Simon Andriesz uses vibrations given off by the powerful and sacred Buddhist instrument to clear energy blocks in the body and help you unwind to a meditative state.
Venture through Camden Market to find the calm studio located above the chaos. After a few simple breathing and relaxation exercises, you simply lie back — tucked in a blanket — and listen to the healing sounds, which get louder and longer, eventually drowning out any pesky voices in your head.
When it’s all over, you’re left calm and clearheaded. As for stress?
It’s long gong.
