We’re near entering the latter half of 2021 and a year and a half into the pandemic, we can’t believe we’ve made it this far (let’s give ourselves a pat in the back)! With Hong Kong slowly opening up, so is the social calendar. Just when we’ve adjusted to the new normal, changing our routine can be a struggle. If you’re not ready to fully transition to the new normal, opt to practice mindfulness at studios located here in the 852!
While Hong Kong is never short on relaxation, these meditation studios are the places to be if you want to make a conscious change in practicing mindfulness through meditation. We’ve all tried sitting down and meditating, only to be distracted by our phone notification ringing within five minutes. It truly is a learning process. To help you kickstart, we list five meditation studios to check out in Hong Kong.
Red Doors Studio
Embark on a journey of healing through sound. Located in the tranquil neighbourhood of Wong Chuk Hang, Red Doors Studio is beautifully designed with over thirty gongs that can’t go unnoticed. Meditation gongs facilitate a state of meditation through the movement of chi or prana (a positive life force) throughout the body. What’s more, they’re absolutely gorgeous to look at. We bet you’ll be on your knees to play one of these. Benefits of a sound gong bath supersedes the physical. Through vibrations, gongs can rebalance the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies. Red Doors Studio offers a range of activities to practice mindfulness, do book a consultation with founder Martha Collard to find out what works for you!
