Sound for Wellbeing with Nitya Mohan

Oct 2022 | Special Workshop Series | Singapore

This workshop series on Sound and Music as a modality of health and integrated wellbeing is based on ancient teachings and wisdom, drawing from classical texts on yoga as well as validated scientific practices. 

In today’s world with its varied stresses and demands, developing better connections to our own mind and body is vital to maintain good health and longevity. Sound is a timeless tool that allows us to connect with our body, breath and mind – to release stresses from the body, to deepen our breath and also work with our mind to create stable and healthy emotional patterns.

These workshops offer unique perspectives and practices that combine traditional Yoga practices with classical Indian music and Vedic mantras. Meant to be a transformative program, all areas of learning will be accompanied by theory as well as practice enabling students to immediately integrate the wisdom into their daily life as well as teaching.

This program is suitable for both yoga students and teachers and is open to anyone who is interested in working deeper on the aspects of Yoga, Sound and Music. No prior Sound or Yoga experience required.

This program is for you if

  • You would like to infuse your practice and teaching with Breath and Sound based tools and practices
  • You would like to learn to use your own voice for meditation and use Sound as a tool for personal transformation
  • You would like to gain an authentic understanding about the links in ancient Yoga, music and mantra texts, integrating them into daily life practices
