From the Founder

What do you hear when you listen deeply? Nada yoga is a practice of deep internal listening with the goal of hearing the sound of anahata nada, the unstruck sound. This mystical sound can range from loud drums, soft flutes, buzzing bees and shimmering gongs to the “sound of clouds.” The sounds of anahata are produced and heard from the sushumna, the central energy channel, and these sounds will be especially loud in the heart chakra.

The ability to discover, listen to and focus on anahata nada is not an easy practice, but learning to listen deeply is a valuable and rewarding skill that benefits many other areas of your yoga practice and life.
