Nada Yoga Workshops at the Satyananda Yoga Centre

with Mahesh

Dates: Saturdays 23 June and 25 July 2016

Experience the effects of sound vibrations on your body and mind. In these workshops we will focus on the various ways of doing Swara Sadhana, a practice where different musical scales are used to internalise your awareness, stimulate the energy centres (chakras) and channels (nadis) within the body. This will lead you into a state of peace and tranquillity, a clearer mind, and a feeling of lightness and joy that is inherent in you but which is often hidden under layers of stress and mental confusion.

Unlike many practices of meditation that require a lot of discipline and sustained focus, the practice of Swara Sadhana and simple mantras such as Om or the Mahamrityunjaya Mantra (also included in the workshop) will give you instant results even at a beginner stage.

Recordings, practice materials, and advice on sustainable home practice will all be provided to workshop participants.

To apply, please write to yoga2@protonmail.com and/or visit www.yogasquare.net for booking form and more information.

Venue SYC London, 70 Thurleigh Road, London SW12 8UD
