Nada Yoga, The Yoga Of Sound
Nada is a Sanskrit word that means sound. Though the practice of Nada Yoga is not one specific practice it covers a wide range of practical exercises. Some practices include vocal play, singing, sounding the Indian scales and mantras. Part of Nada Yoga is learning to fine-tune your ability to listen to audible and inaudible sounds, which is an aspect of subtle vibration.
Benefits of Nada Yoga
The practice of Nada Yoga assists us to become more aware through the aspect of listening, initially externally and eventually internally. When we cultivate a deeper awareness to conscious listening, our inner chatter slowly starts to dissolve which promotes inner peace. It is in a peaceful mind where joy and contentment naturally arise.
Sound is intimately connected with our breath, as both aspects are used to bring us into the present moment.
Transforms stuck emotions
Releases endorphins (the brain’s “feel good” chemicals)
Sounding the musical scale helps to move inner pranic energy that increases your energy
Builds your confidence to express and communicate more freely
Creates new neurological networks in the brain and expands your consciousness.
Strengthens your teaching voice
Allows for deeper meditations
