There is something sacred inside each one of us that vibrates in perfect harmony with the Universe. However, the cacophony of our thoughts prevents us from enjoying this inner harmony. Nada Yoga teaches us how to rise above this noise, go deeper into our heart and discover the inexhaustible source of inner peace and strength there.
Nada Yoga is a wonderful confluence of the science of Yoga and the art of Music. Nada Yoga envisages Music as a means of Enlightenment by exploring the energetic aspect of Music. Nada Yoga can remove energy blockages and result in inner healing and deeper states of meditation.
In this workshop, Ram Vakkalanka will present the spiritual side of music and explain the correspondence between musical tones and five Elements and other energy aspects of our mind-body system. This workshop involves intermittent guided meditation. Please dress comfortably.
