A Journey to Your­self...

A Journey of Sound

Three-years Naad Yoga teacher-training with Gian Kaur in cooperation with the Raj Academy & Professor Surinder Singh, Yogi of Sound
Starting 16th of November 2018

In the three years of training you will experience Naad, the eternal sound current of Creation. You will develop your own voice. You will learn to understand how your voice can become a remedy for you and others. Acquire new musical skills or extend your existing ones by learning to play one of the most beautiful stringed instruments or the jori (an ancestor and archetype of the tabla). What is more, you will gain experience in teaching Naad Yoga. You will take the first steps in composing and find out how you can dedicate your music to the higher purpose of healing. You will become acquainted with the effect and the application of Raags (in theory and practice), you will get an increasingly better understanding of how your mind works. You will precisely sense and recognise the nature of your various moods and feelings. Finally, deploy your experience gained in this training and your entire wisdom to elevate your fellow human beings and, in particular, yourself by Naad Yoga.
