Kathi Thelander of Harmony Wellness in Oregon took the Sedona AZ class in 2017, and began adding VST to her yoga offerings last January. She also provides sound baths to clients in Yamhill, Polk and Lincoln counties in Oregon. Her favorite part of VSA training was learning about sound baths.

A practicing physical therapist for 38 years and Reiki Master for 12, a few years ago she attended a Postural Restoration Institute symposium about vibration, sound and tone in Lincoln NE where she learned to use tuning forks. She later heard about VSA trainings and felt like she was called to complete the course as an adjunct to her current practice.

Kathi has been doing free (donation only) sound baths and mini-treatments during the local Art Walk at the spa where she practices. With a living room setup, it's a perfectly cozy and comfortable space for mini sessions. She's also volunteered to do free mini sound baths for a local Tai Chi class for the elderly.

Kathi also has plans to do a ladies retreat in the near future. During those retreats, she'd like to incorporate vibrational sound therapy, sound baths, yoga nidra and chakra balancing.

Kathi's creekside home provides a great backdrop for VST as well. She takes her bowls out and sings them on her deck, and jokes that friends report feeling 'wonderfully stoned' and that she has to put towels down to catch the drool.

Thank you, Kathi, for sharing your practice with us this week!
