WHAT IS A SAND ROOM?
Our sand room is a combination of soothing colors, soothing sounds, and textures meant to calm the mind and relax the body. It is more than an indoor sandbox, we have created a sandscape oasis far from the beaches of the coast. Playing with sand increases mindfulness in the present moment, calms the mind, and reduces stress, and allows you to find perspective in our busy world.
WHAT DO I DO IN A SAND ROOM?
Unlike the pressures of life, our sand room is meant to be a “non-productive” area. There are no deadlines, timelines, or tasks to complete. All you do is relax and reconnect with nature's elements. This means that you can sit on a pillow and meditate, breathe deeply, perform your favorite yoga poses, put your feet in the sand, nap, rake the sand, or use our many sand spheres to create your own sand wonderscape.
WHY DO WE SIT ON THE FLOOR?
Sand reconnects our bodies to the ever-present energy of the earth, which modern lifestyles have increasingly diminished. Basically, the theory is that our bodies are meant to come into contact with the Earth (a “grounding” force) on a regular basis. Positive electrons in the form of free radicals can build up in our bodies and direct contact with the ground balances this out as it is a negative grounding charge.
IS THE SAND SAFE?
Yes! We strive to maintain the cleanest facility possible. We have chosen to use pure sand free of quartz, asbestos, wheat, or nuts.
We use an ultraviolet light in the room nightly to destroy germs, surfaces are cleaned daily, and sand is cleaned on a regular cleaning schedule.
Hand sanitizer is available, and we encourage use before and after using the sand room.
