Sound is at the core of human awareness. As we are born and when we die, hearing is the first of the senses to appear and the last to disappear. Each sound has a direct effect on our emotions and thoughts. Nada yoga explores these boundaries and relationships between sounds and our state of consciousness to create harmonious communication between mind and heart, healing and balancing themselves on many levels.
Nada yoga embraces the ancient Indian musical system of Ragas. ‘Raga’ means ‘mood’, and each raga evokes its characteristic emotional state by employing a particular combination of notes with rules of tone and emphasis. The Ragas has deep influences on the Chakras (energy centres), it helps energise and nourish chakras, maintain its balance, and enables to clean the energy blockages.
Nada yoga is a continual process of going inward and outward through listening and expressing: it is the sound that provides the map, the points of reference, by which we recognise our own experience and that of others.
The single most important benefit of music yoga is to gain union with self.
– Develop an atmosphere of joy, happiness and harmony within yourself
– Effective to calm and relax your mind and heart.
– Get rid of anger, anxiety and aggressiveness
Yogi Dev Singh was born in Chandigarh, northern India. His early childhood was strongly influenced by various classical Indian music gurus and at a young age, he started his musicology studies. He has followed the ancient tradition of Guru-Shishya system (an intimate master-student relationship), in which the Guru passes knowledge through the spiritual, intellectual and emotional bond between them.
This early education included the history of Indian classical music and understanding the complex rhythmic and melodic structures (called Ragas). Across his learning years, Dev Singh’s teachers (Gurus) introduced him to spiritual and healing aspects of Indian classical music, which included music (Nada, Mantras) and meditative (Dhyana) Yoga.
