Al escuchar en un "concierto" el sonido de un didjeridoo por primera vez sentí que una vibración especial recorría todo mi cuerpo. Yo soy Profesor de Hatha Yoga y practico Shiatsu with Tibetan Bowls. Es mi intención comprar un didjeridoo aprender a sonarlo y luego incorporarlo a mis sesiones de Hatha Yoga + Shiatsu + Tibetan Bowls + .... didjeridoo. He regresado recién de la India y siento la necesidad de incorporar estos sonidos a mis prácticas y sesiones.

I felt deeply connected to the didj from the second I heard it. I heard a language The oldest language in the universe possibly the same vibrations that have created everything. I started playing the didj when I was 9 I'm 22 and I play the didj everyday along with practice kung fu. Circular breathing greatly advances your abilities to harvest chi power I personally linked circular breathing with my tai chi & qi gong postures I can feel an amazing difference

The didgeridoo had a haunting earthy sound. As a saxophone player I thought about all the metal working mechanisms and other things that go into crafting a sax. Then I thought about how relatively simple this ancient instrument was and how it could have more of an effect on a persons feelings than most modern instruments.
