A singing bowl is a particular kind of standing bell that is inverted and played by rotating a mallet around the outer rim in order to create a resonant, musical note. It can also be played in the more traditional way by simply striking the edge of the bowl. They range in size from just a few centimeters to a meter across. As well as being used for making music, singing bowls have become popular with yogis. They may be played during a yoga class or to rouse the class from savasana. They may also be used in meditation or healing practices.
