Professional Development for yoga & meditation teachers
This 1 day immersion into sound aims to provide teachers/trainee teachers with the skills, knowledge and confidence to bring uplifting mantras and sound practices into their teaching.
We will explore mantra and chanting as a way to deepen our breath, focus our minds and open our hearts. The use of sound can release and transform emotional and mental holding to create space for a deeper beingness to permeate us. Sound practices are a perfect bridge into meditation and into a deeper inner inquiry and self-exploration.
Practices will range from simple humming practices to beautiful Sanskrit prayers, and will include both contemporary and traditional practices. These practices can be included within any yoga or meditation style or tradition. We will place the practices in a theoretical framework exploring four sound traditions: vedic, tantric, bhakti and nada yoga. This framework is especially useful for yoga/meditation teachers to help place any sound practice in context and to enhance our understanding of the deep purpose behind these practices. We will also explore how these practices can be integrated into yoga and meditation teaching.
We will be exploring sound as practice, not performance, so rusty voices are very welcome. This workshop is suitable for both beginner and experienced students of mantra yoga. The practices are easy to learn and to teach even without any previous musical experience.
“To sing is not enough. We must tap the powers that lie beneath the consciousness of the song. The song leads down to the chant, the chant leads down to the tone, the tone leads down to the breath and the breath leads to the energy beneath the sound – the roar of silence.” Don Campbell
All participants will receive a Sacred Sound Training Manual. This workshop earns 6.5 CPD points for Yoga Australia members.
Please note: I now offer a Sacred Sound Introduction one day Immersion for students and teachers. If you are new to sound practices it is highly recommended that you attend the Sacred Sound Introduction before attending the Teacher Training Immersion. If you are familiar with using sound you do not need to do the Introduction first. If you have done a Sacred Sound Immersion or Course with me in the past, the practices we explored then are now included in the Sacred Sound Introduction, so you can then attend the Teacher Training Immersion.
