The Yoga of Sound – Tuning Your Instrument Sessions

We’ll explore practical applications of the yoga of sound for personal transformation. Our goal is to support you in pragmatic and profound ways to fall more deeply in love with your practice.

  • Voice culture using Indian vocal meditation techniques
  • Sacred sound and the 4 levels of speech
  • Sanskrit Mantra and mental digestion, using the mind as a vehicle for cosmic impulse
  • Sound-based yoga practices for harmonising and nourishing all of our bodies: physical, breath, mental, identity and bliss (sound-based Yoga and the 5 Kośas)
Afternoon classes during the workshop will be a time to dive into how sound-based yoga works (from a tantric non-dual philosophical basis) and ask Anandra questions. Extensive multi-media learning resources are included for your ongoing self-study.

Chant Experience – Kīrtan from the Heart of Sound Session

A taste of the divine archetypal forms of the Sanskrit sound vibrations and experience a refined new dimension of mantra chanting as devotional kīrtan set to Indian classical rāgas! This event will be open to guests outside of the workshop and we will conclude the evening with a meal which will be provided.

Sound Bath – Mantras for Peace Session

Relax, reset, and integrate your expansive Heart of Sound workshop experience with crystal bowls while you enjoy passive yin yogāsana shapes. We’ll rejuvenate together in a deep, sweet silence and make a final offering of mantras for peace.

Anandra George is a pioneer in the global yoga community, re-introducing the ancient practice of sound as a fundamental practice. She created the world’s first registered yoga teacher training based entirely on the transformational power of sound (including Sanskrit, mantra, Indian classical vocal meditation, and non-violent communication for everyday life). American by birth, Indian by soul, and global citizen by expression, she helps people transform their limiting belief systems and cultivate their most fulfilling contribution to the world.

She divides her time between India, Japan, and on Kaua’i island, Hawaii, and teaches mantra workshops and intensives worldwide. For more than 20 years, she’s been on “the path” and has been teaching and seeing private clients globally since 1999.

An internationally respected mantra teacher and sacred musician, she is frequently invited to teach and lead chanting/kīrtan at the world’s largest yoga festivals. Her students from online meditation groups, workshops, and teacher trainings speak highly about their experiences.
