If you're ready for a profound immersion into sound-based yoga *available online for the first time in 2021* join us! Watch the full video below to learn more:
Featuring sound-based communion practices and extensive multimedia skill learning material.
Our daily practices are nourishing, challenging, and build in intensity each day. The personal transformation we experience consistently exceeds our expectations.
Skill is devotion, in the Heart of Sound. You'll gain a practical foundation in voice culture, Indian musical scales, harmonium, and Sanskrit mantra as you prepare for leadership.
Regardless of your musical ability, you'll be trained to lead a chant experience that invites participants to experience communion through sound. It's not about performance, it's a service.

Skills practice under teaching assistant supervision, study time, and student-led chant experiments
Guided yogāsana and self-massage to tune your body instrument especially for our penetrating sound-based practices
"The depth of the Heart of Sound practices really blew my mind. To have such a supportive course structure and community creates a phenomenally safe space. I have the tools I need to develop a practice to exist more mindfully in the world."
Anandra (Heart of Sound Founder) leads our morning chant experiences and offers the primary course content.
Our Heart of Sound teaching faculty will lead the afternoon yogāsana and integrative skills practice sessions. To learn more about the teaching faculty, take our FREE Preparatory Course.
