Nada Yoga 18/276
Tutor: Rajesh David
Date: 1st September 2018
Time: 10:00 - 16:00
Simplistically, Nada yoga is the yoga of sound. This day will impart an intellectual grasp of the concept of Nada and its philosophical background to help students appreciate the universality of Nada. We will explore Nada in asanas, breathing and movement and sensitise our chakras using Indian music scales. During the day, we will deepen our meditative practice using sound and inspire an interest in, and hopefully a wish to further study, the concept of Nada. At least one Indian rhythm pattern will be learned and applied to our practice. There will be time to explore the various resonating chambers in our body and to develop a practice of meditation using sound and mantra.
Teaching materials will include handouts, posters, harmonium and tanpura. These will be used throughout the day in all practical sessions. Teaching methods will include a short lecture, demonstration, class work, experiential self discovery, discussion and question and answer.
The BWY Scotland AGM will be from 1:30 to 2pm on this day.
Please bring your own yoga mat and props as none will be provided.
BYO lunch or go to a local cafe. Hot drinks will be provided.
