Nada Yoga: From Sound to Silence

Nada Yoga interprets the cosmos through the medium of sound. Such a way of perceiving the world unites ancient myths and modern science. Its techniques lead to an increasingly refined tuning of our perception. The resonance produced by our vocal sounds have the potential not only to energise our body and mind, but also to heighten our awareness of the chakras. Nada means sound. It also means vibration, thus incorporating everything from the most seemingly solid to the most intangible, therefore our exploration of Nada must go beyond the limitations of human hearing to encompass wider concepts of harmony, balance and rhythm. In the session we will explore the path of Nada Yoga through the lens Pratyahara, Dharana and Dhyana.
