Yogis across the centuries have harnessed the power of sound to fuel their yoga practice. Traditionally chanting and deep listening held a central role in yogic practice in India. When yoga migrated to the west the physical practice of asana was emphasized and the place of nada anusandhana (yogic sound practice) faded into the background. In recent years, however, there has been a resurgence in yogic chant in studios across the country for its reputation as the simple, quick, easy yogic path. Discover the traditions of sound in yoga and learn how to integrate them into a modern yoga practice as both a student and teacher with one of North America’s leading teachers on the subject.
