This day will review the concept of Nada and prepare us for a deeper understanding of sound. We will explore sound as harmony and balance in the body and work with music and mantra yoga. We will during the day be moving from sound to silence and examining the meaning and nature of silence. There will be a yoga nidra practice, reflection on the mantra Om, with reference to Upanishadic texts and a meditation practice. There will be a Hatha yoga practice in the morning. Teaching materials will include handouts, posters, flip-chart, harmonium and tanpura. and teaching methods will include short lecture, demonstration, class work, experiential, self discovery, discussion and Q & A.
