The Yoga of Sound
".....The yoga of sound requires bringing 5 different components together:
SOUND, POSTURE, BREATH, MOVEMENT and CONSCIOUSNESS.
When we effectively combine all these components, yoga happens!"
(Exert from "The Yoga of Sound" by Russill Paul)
"In short, Nada Yoga is "union through sound”. The union of body, mind and spirit."
(Nada Yoga School, Rishikesh, India 2017)
Nada Yoga is the yoga of listening - listening to the external sounds in preparation for listening to the internal sound, the primordial sound - the "Nada".
Nada Yoga covers a wide spectrum and encompasses many yogic traditions including:
Mantra Yoga - Mantra repetition through chanting
Shabda Yoga - The practice of sacred word
Bhakti Yoga - Devotional singing through Kirtan and Bahrain
Shakti Yoga - Focussing on the energy within ourselves through asana, breath and movement
Hatha Yoga - Focus on asana, pranayama and meditation
Working as a Nada Yoga Practitioner, I combine the teachings of Hatha Yoga - slow and steady asanas focusing on pranayama (yogic breathing) with
the ancient teachings of Sanskrit mantra along with today’s modern techniques of sound therapy, to offer a carefully structured practice that you can work with and take with you beyond the mat to encourage a yoga practice to support your daily life.
I also work with exercises for meditation that focus on the Nada within.
