Nada Yoga Teacher Training


Where you'll find Joseph in 2017: after Auroville, at the 200-hr Nada Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh, India. You can read about it at http://www.nadyoga.org/nada-yoga-teacher-training-in-india/

Here's part of the course description ...

What is Nada Yoga?

Nada Yoga is “union through sound”. The union of body, mind and spirit.

Nada Yoga is a branch of Yoga in which transformation is brought through the Shabd or Nada. The nearest translation of Shabd and Nada is sound or vibration. But Shabd or Nada are not the same as sound because they can be produced either by striking two objects known as Ahata sound or without striking two objects which is called Anahata sound. Anahata sound can be heard at the Anahata or heart chakra. Nada has the same place in yoga as energy has in science.

We can’t see energy, but we can feel it as vibrations. All energy, all vibrations generate sound. Sound is one way for us to experience this energy.
