Naad Yoga Workshop
Naad Yoga has 4 limbs
1. Science of chanting
2. Science and art of deep listening.
Naad Yoga , the Yoga of sound ,is practiced in all spiritual disciplines to elevate the consciousness and awareness of the practitioner. But how does it actually work?
This will be the main focus of the workshop. We will use Sanskrit, Gurmukhi and English mantras.
The class will be a combination of lecture to understand both the science and devotional aspects of chanting as well as some historical perspectives on its practice. We will explore the 8 parts of the body used to create sound and language and how the breath is used in that process. We will also discuss the use of the chakras in chanting and the various ways to make chanting more effective.
The other aspect of the class will be various meditations to experience the above and how mantra and meditation affect the brain chemistry of the human as well as the Vagus nerve and the parasympathetic nervous system. Although the science of Naad Yoga is rooted in the Kundalini Yoga system no prior knowledge of yoga is necessary.
In the afternoon we will enter into the practice of Suniai or deep listening. Again there will be lecture to understand the mechanics and concept of deep listening and its affects and how we can practice to deepen and improve our listening ability and skills . We will also talk about the Anahad , the un-struck melody of the universe and how it relates to the big bang theory and Yogic Cosmology. Then we will practice very practical meditations to deepen our listening skills. The classes will be interactive with plenty of time for questions and there will be lots of live music and chanting.
