Following her high school years, Gyöngyi’s path took a transformative turn as she became a certified ski/snowboard instructor, imparting her knowledge in Romania, Austria, and California across several winter seasons. During her time in Austria, she was introduced to the soul-stirring sounds of Tibetan Singing Bowls and underwent a profound personal transformation through the Peter Hess® method of sound healing.

The Healers Journey 

Motivated by her healing journey, Gyöngyi achieved certification as a sound healer through IASH (International Academy of Sound Healing) and Gong training through Tone of Life based in Europe.  Organized workshops and trainings in Lake Tahoe and LA Quinta. Gyöngyi’s unwavering passion for sound healing led her to become an educator, offering Sound Healing Certification to enthusiasts and professionals alike. She is also renowned for her Sound Healing meditation classes, where the harmonious resonance of singing bowls and gongs delivers a profound holistic relaxation experience while she guides individuals into a visualization  practice.

Additionally, she embarked on a yoga journey in India, earning her 200-hour YTTC in Astanga Vinyasa Flow Yoga in 2013. Combining yoga and sound healing meditation classes for an optimal result to achieve balance and well-being. 

In 2009, Gyöngyi delved into the world of Reiki, attaining Reiki level I and II Attunements. Her commitment to mastery saw her earn the prestigious title of Reiki Master in 2012, a journey she continued with Marianne Schneider in 2017-2018 for becoming a Reiki Teacher.

Throughout her remarkable journey, Gyöngyi has touched countless lives, utilizing her expertise in various healing modalities to address spiritual, physical, and mental concerns. Her holistic approach often involves Reiki Universal energy, sound healing, emotion code, aromatherapy with Doterra essential oils to amplify relaxation and healing effects.

Gyöngyi, an entrepreneur driven by her deep passion for sound healing and holistic wellness, leads a fulfilling life as a loving mom in a co-parenting household. She is dedicated to nurturing her 9-year-old son in the serene and picturesque community of Truckee, CA, where the beauty of nature harmoniously complements her journey of personal and professional growth.

TESTIMONIALS

 

Gyongyi is clairvoyant, patient, and genuine. She truly wants to help and discover deep rooted issues. Once the session is over she goes over the session with you and helps reveal which areas you are holding emotion and blocking energies. I personally needed several sessions, but I definitely noticed a dramatic change and shift. I felt more open, more at ease, and ready to take on new challenges. It was also a reminder to take care of myself and have awareness to try to maintain this new found level of peace. I highly recommend it!!

Woohoo, talking about great healing experience. Gyöngyi takes her care and time from the moment you enter her session , she will asses your personal needs and you will be leaving with a great sense of release. Her soundbowl session is beautiful, she is very talented playing/ placing the bowls all over your body, she will use big gongs for more profound relaxation, aromatheraphy & gem stones. You can book her to read you from a destiny & love books as well ( if you would like to know why having difficulty’s or carying bad karma this period of time). Lots of people going to her to heal different parts of their body, mind & soul but personally I go for a tune up every month so I can relax to the point that nothing else will matter , helps my sleep 100% . She is very geniune and compassionate. Her session is very exciting just tell her why you are there for and she will take care of you. You can book her also for yoga and meditation as well. I am highly recommending her to all of you! Namaste.

I am completely blown away by my amazing experience at GyoHarmony! The business owner and yoga instructor, Gyongyi, elevated this yoga class to make it unforgettable! The studio is small which I loved because it makes the experience more personal. We only had a total of 4 people in my morning yoga class. Gyongyi had all of the yoga equipment you could ever need, so you only had to bring yourself. It was really nice to not stress over forgetting my yoga mat. She started class with this amazing tennis ball exercise on your feet. It hit all of my pressure points and almost instantly relaxed me. I am surprised not more yoga classes do this to begin a class! The yoga class itself was wonderful and relaxing. Gyongyi talks in a soothing tone throughout the class, guiding you to different positions. What really stood out for me though was the sound bath at the end. My word! I would go back just to do that portion again! Gyongyi gives you a drop of essential oil and a weighted face mask as you take in all the sounds from the different bowls. It was the most relaxing thing I could imagine! It completely cleared my brain of any thoughts and all anxieties! Gyongyi said she incorporates the sound bath into every class and I can see why! I will definitely be back to try another class! I highly recommend this yoga studio to anyone in Northern Lake Tahoe or Truckee!

Gentle yoga and sound bath is an absolute must! Tuesdays at 9am. They are small classes and perfect for deep stretching and relaxation. The first 1/2 of the class is all about gentle yoga and moving energy in your body, followed by 20-30 minutes of sound bath. The experience also includes essential oil use and weighted eye masks to make the sound bath a truly one of a kind experience. You leave completely revived and ready for your day! One of my absolute favorites!

I’ve experienced a few group sound healing meditation sessions & a private sound healing session with Gyöngyi, and each time I’ve come out of the session more relaxed, energized, & enlightened. In addition, I’ve also had the honor of attending the introductory sound healing class organized by Gyöngyi, so I’ve experienced first hand her teaching skills which filter through all her sessions. Gyöngyi has a beautiful way of making one feel at ease and at home in whatever environment. Her intuitive gifts help hone in on the needs of each individual in order to direct the necessary sound vibration to achieve the best results.
In addition to sound healing, Gyöngyi is knowledgeable about essential oils, yoga, and detoxing. Therefore, Gyöngyi brings a well-balanced set of skills to all her work in order to help people achieve the best healing results. My gratitude goes out to Gyöngyi for all the ways the that she has helped me!! Blessings

I feel so lucky to have found Gyongyi. I have loved her sound therapy sessions and I have hired her for private sessions as well. I look forward to future therapies that I sign up for.
Tracy G.

My wife and I attended a sound healing experience for the first time and found it to be a very comfortable, enlightening and worthwhile way to adjust, let go of general stresses and try a new way to re-center ourselves.
Craig R.

Gyongyi is truly a gift to our healing. Her presence with sound healing bowls and emotional code healing is both comfortable and masterful. I feel very relaxed in her presence and am grateful to have moved some old stuck energy in our emotional code healing session. Thank you!
Emily W.

Gyongyi, herself and her sacred healing space at her home are wonderful! The primary reason I went to visit with Gyongyi was to see if she could help a swollen wrist of mine. I signed up for 4 sessions with Gyongyi after my first successful session. Not only did I feel relief in my wrist and forearm after my sessions, I also have felt more balanced and grounded, less emotional, and more decisive; all of which have helped me within my business and personal life. Thanks, Gyongyi, I look forward to many more sessions with you!:)
Anna M.

Gyöngyi has the power of healing and peace in her heart. This is very evident in her practice. After several sound bowl sessions, each time I have come away feeling a calm and a release of emotions that were not serving me.  I would highly recommend her services and her knowledge of healing.

Gyongyi has created a beautiful intimate ceremony for my birthday. She combined yoga, sound healing and sacred space holding for my close group of girl friends. The sound healing turned out to be a very powerful experience for all of us. Thank you, Gyongyi

I took Gyongyi’s Tibetan bowl and gong class at the Vintage Golf course this past April with a friend and was so inspired by the experience that I scheduled a session the next day with 11 of my friends who were all on vacation with me.
We all loved the experience and felt very grounded, relaxed and focused after the class. Gyongyi was very professional and stayed after class and explained how the vibrations help move energy throughout the body. She was very knowledgable about her practice.
As a RN of more than 30 years I was inspired and could see this practice used in clinics and hospitals to help relieve stress and heal the body. I would definitely recommend this class to others. I wish this class was offered near by my home as I would be a regular.

I have had 2 sound healing from Gyo this past year of 2020 and they were both amazing. The energy and space are so relaxing I highly recommend.

This place is heaven. Gyongyi is a master at sound. This space and her specialized skills brought me to a place of such deep tranquility and surrender. I highly recommend GyoHarmony for anyone seeking to relax or tune into the deeper layers of their being. You will be transported!
Abby J.

Gyongyi is a true master of her craft. I’ve been to many of her group sound healing events, and do private sessions with her as a part of my ongoing health maintenance routine. She is kind, professional, and has a gift for knowing which of her many tools to apply to a particular session. Sound healing is the medicine of the future, and working with gyongyi has been of profound benefit to my own well-being!
Ellen W.

This is the best thing I have experienced. I have done many things in life with my body and worked hard for everything, but I learned from Gyöngyi how to relax and be peaceful. Being an athlete is full time but learning how to relax with the bowls is something I would love to do more often. She just has to move to Canada! Follow this lovely lady. And try it out. I realize meditation is very healthy. And I will do it more!

The most amazing experience I have every had.  Gyöngyi has the most amazing soul, spirit and talent.  I have had the pleasure of private and group sessions, each one has been a very overwhelming experience.  If you have not yet visited Gyöngyi I really don’t know what you are waiting for.  There are no words to describe the entire experience.  It is relaxing, beautiful, touching and I always walk away felling lighter happier healthier and all around better. Gyöngyi has a very special talent and those of us who have crossed her path are the luckiest people ever.  She will touch your soul and leave a lasting impact with you.  When I first started visiting with her I was going through a very rough time in my life, she helped me though a lot and I thank her for that.  The sensation for the vibrations of the bowls when they are placed are your body is like no feeling you can get from anything else. I am so thankful for getting time with her ever winter when she is in my area!!!  Visit her you will not be disappointed.  I have taken both of my parents to her as well, that night my dad had the best night sleep he has ever had in years.  My mom had bad knees and after the visit she had so much relief on her knees.
