In this beautiful and enlightening presentation, internationally acclaimed teacher, vocalist and sound healer Shanti Shivani introduces the mystic practice of Nada Yoga (the Yoga of Sound) as a means of healing, empowerment and self-realization. Nada Yoga is the core of Dhrupad, the most ancient style of Hindustani Classical Music. Originally only sung by priests in the temples as an act of worship, it induces a deep meditative state in the singer as well as the listener.
Drawing upon her extensive training and experience in the Dhrupad tradition, Shivani presents specific body movements and vocal techniques designed to free the natural voice, develop awareness of the breath and body, stimulate innate healing potential and access the sacred within. She also offers instruction in the basic exercises of the ancient Indian raga (modal) system and more specifically in Raga Bhairav, the ‘sunrise mode’ that invokes the state of inner peace. These time-honored techniques are designed to clear the emotional body, balance the chakras (subtle energy centers), enhance intuition and creative expression and bring a new level of serenity, health and harmony.
