Content & Schedule

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.

Primary Practice

A 90-minute deep Heart of Sound practice with nāda yoga and mantra meditation

Lecture, Q&A, Skills

Dynamic conversations with Anandra on the yoga of sound, transformation, and chant leadership.

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."

Here's a sample schedule for the Online TT March-May 2020:
Go to Google Calendar

You'll see classes are sprinkled across time zones - of course not all times will work for all students, and that's fine!

The next Online TT group schedule will take place over 6 months and will be flexible according to the needs, requests, and integration pace of students as we go.

We'll schedule LIVE group practices, skill study sessions, and office hours for you to interact with Anandra and other teachers.

You'll be required to meet with your cohort in live meetings, do study sessions with buddies, and other interactive human elements too.

In order to get your certification you'll have to teach your practicum classes in front of a live audience to get 360-degree feedback.

If you don't have great internet access, or the live schedule doesn't always work for you, don't worry!

The entire course is available via recordings online. You can start anytime, and go at your own pace!

All of the important content delivery & practice sessions are available online. (Office hours, buddy sessions, chai time chats, or other highly specific, personal connections are NOT recorded.)

Because of time zones, we won't be able to enforce much strict attendance. When it comes time for the practicum (you teaching) of course you'll have to do that!

You'll have access to the online course for as long as we're in business. :)

Anticipated Time Commitment:
If you've already done the Sanskrit online course with us and have already started in on the Prerequisite reading (listed in our prep course), we'd expect you to spend a few hours per day attending classes, reading, studying, watching video course content, and doing your homework and personal practice. Within 2-3 weeks we'll start slowly with the teaching practicum part, and you'll have a variety of assignments related to that.

It could be from 15-30 hours per week, depending on your pace and how much of the prep work you've already done. (It's also perfectly reasonable to do the crucial prep work in a day or two, if you haven't yet.)

We'll see how this batch of students goes with the online pace, but we anticipate the course to span 5-6 weeks.

If you can't keep up with the schedule, it's the same as would happen if you were attending a live class... you'd have to make up the assignments later in order to get your certification.

Browsing through the extensive FREE Preparatory Course will answer many of your questions! That's why we made it the next step for anyone considering joining us. :)

Also, once you register, we will email you a highly detailed FAQ that will explain how to get to Rishikesh, options for housing, what to pay, etc.

Please make sure to Subscribe to our mailing list to make sure you don't miss any important offers or follow up emails! Also, make sure you have [email protected] as a safe sender.

Yes.  This is a Yoga Alliance qualified 200 hour Teacher Training.  You must register and pay for membership with YA, and once you complete all prerequisite and course materials with Heart of Sound, you can send request to YA for the certification.  

Attending a 5-day Retreat into the Heart of Sound is a normally a prerequisite to taking our LIVE teacher training. For the online version of the TT, the 5-day Retreat is included (also online).

We'd love to see and hear you in person, too, as soon as we're able to schedule LIVE events.

Please visit the Retreats page to find one that suits your schedule, location, and budget.

If you haven't already, please take our FREE Teacher Training Preparatory Course to learn about additional requirements.

Yes!  If you plan to use what you'll learn in the Heart of Sound training in service to your community, you're welcome to apply for a full or partial scholarship for the tuition portion of the course. We have already awarded our scholarships for 2020, but can apply for the 2021 Teacher Training.

There is a non-refundable $500 administrative fee for all applications. If you wish to cancel for any reason, you will receive a 75% refund of remaining tuition if requested 90 days or more before the course, and a 50% refund if requested after 90 days. No refunds will be issued less than 30 days in advance.

If you are on a payment plan and wish to cancel before completing the course, you remain responsible for completing your payments.

If you pay and refuse to sign the liability waiver, it is considered a cancellation of your registration. (The same deadlines for % of refunds apply.) Read a copy of the waiver here.

The Heart of Sound reserves the right to substitute teachers, change the format of delivery, or make any other changes required in order to deliver a quality teacher training that meets or exceeds all Yoga Alliance certification guidelines.

In the event of an act of God, (e.g. natural disaster, pandemic, or other uncontrollable event) delivery of the training may be delayed or rescheduled.

Note: If you simply need to delay your attendance, rather than cancel, we're always generous with deferring to later trainings, on a case-by-case basis. Generally, the tuition you paid minus the $500 admin fee is transferred to the next training you wish to participate in.

  1. Tell us a bit more about yourself in the application form here: 2020 Registration Online Teacher Training (PLEASE, this is mandatory to do BEFORE you process your payment.)
