"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."

Jason Stotz

Over 350 people from 65 countries have taken our sound & mantra 200HR training (and thousands from 120+ countries have studied with Anandra) since 2009. Here are a few video comments from them.

Meet the Teaching Team!

Anandra is joined by guest Indian classical music teacher Sudhanshu Sharma and a team of worldwide rotating teaching assistants for this online course.

Come for the training, stay for the community!

The Heart of Sound family tends to gather real, down-to-earth, good people who are smart, motivated to serve, and committed to authenticity, integrity, and empowerment. We love to laugh, find poetry in the madness, and sing our hearts out!


"This online training was the answer to my prayers. As a business owner who had to pivot online with four children at home during the lockdown phase of the pandemic, I jumped at the chance to attend! The structure helped me maintain a practice that grounded & nourished me even with the chaos of a busy household. (Truthfully, I sang the alphabet while washing dishes!) It was a balm to my soul, a source of inspiration... and as an Indian American, it provided much-needed connection with a modern, global family of mantra lovers!"

We also have a partner program where you can earn generous cash or tuition credits for tuning people into our programs, which you'd be doing anyway! :)

Total Hours:



  • Core curriculum is online, self-study, at your own pace. 
  • Livestreamed chant sessions and fresh content lectures are offered bi-weekly at different time slots to suit our global community’s time zones
  • Optional retreats, workshops & chant events are in-person, worldwide! Count contact hours with Anandra, Sudhanshu, Aleah, Michele, Dipika, Monika, Natalie, and 20+ more authorized 500HR TT graduates!

If you don't have great internet access, or the live group practice 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.)

However, when it comes time for the practicum (you teaching) you'll be required to attend live classs, skill sessions, and do your teaching practicum in front of faculty if you are pursuing the Yoga Alliance certification.

(If you don't care about the certification, attending those meetings is optional. However, if you choose not to attend the LIVE sessions you're choosing to not take full advantage of the value of the course.)

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

The phased learning approach allows you to work at a pace that suits you.

📿 Personal Practice: We expect you to spend 30-60 minutes daily, or several times per week, doing your personal practice of the Heart of Sound skills (Sanskrit alphabet, mantra chanting, vocal toning, empathetic listening, playing and chanting rāga-based songs).

🤓 Study: In addition to your personal practice, you will spend 2-5 hours per week attending classes, reading, studying, watching video course content, and doing your homework, if this works with your schedule.

🌺 We often like listening to class recordings while walking or stretching on the floor. All of our class recordings are uploaded to the course in video and audio formats.

🎤 Don't tell Sudhanshu, but some of us even do our sargam voice exercises along with his recording in the shower!

Practice Teaching: When you've gotten about halfway through the course material, you'll start slowly with the teaching practicum part, and you'll have a variety of cohort group assignments related to that.

Since this is a self-paced course, there's really no "falling behind". If you need to take a break, you can return to the course whenever you like and pick up where you left off. Or, if you have a lot of time on your hands, you can dig through the pre-recorded materials much faster.

The online format allows for a self-paced, phased learning approach. We have put together an easy to follow self-study map which guides you through the course materials, allowing you to tick off your progress as you go, meaning you can work at a pace that suits you and your life.

Many students who signed up in November 2020 completed their 200hr and received their certification by April 2021. Many have gone on to register for the 300hr Advanced teacher training!

With ongoing enrolment and students at different phases of the course, it means whatever phase of the self-study map you are on, there will be someone at the same place as you. This makes our live group sessions rich and diverse and means there is always the opportunity to have buddy sessions or cohort meetings with people at the same phase as you.

Know that you can join us at any time and work at a pace that is perfect for you ❤️.

Yes! You can combine the online teacher training with in-person retreats worldwide.

If you plan to attend in-person, you can get started NOW on the online teacher training material.

When we gather together the focus will be on ENJOYING our practice time together. No foundational lectures or basic skills classes will be offered during the retreat training. The core curriculum for the Heart of Sound training is much more effectively offered online, where trainees can absorb at their own pace. 

The retreat offers an opportunity to attend group practices and count those towards your teacher training hours. There will also be time in the schedule to fulfil other certification requirements if you wish to self-motivate to do so and and abundance of unique chant leadership opportunities! We envision a rich environment of learning as trainees try out their leadership skills!

Find out about all retreat options on our Courses page!

Yes! We are now offering a 500hr Advanced Online Teacher Training. You can take the full 500 hours at once (the 200hr Teacher Training is included), or you can take the 300hr Advanced Teacher Training after you have completed the foundational 200hr Teacher Training.

We are also now offering the option for Heart of Sound graduates to re-take the training online and get additional certification credits.

If you're interested in *only* the Sanskrit, or *only* the music (nāda) training, visit those shorter courses on our Course menu. (Both are also available as continuing-ed training courses with certification.)

We have so many free courses and resources! The TT Prep course would be a great place to start if you're serious about the training. Check out the Course menu and sign up for as many as you'd like. :)

Yes! The 200hr training is offered entirely in Japanese by Ayana Dake in Tokyo, and starting in 2024, will be offered with a German-speaking cohort led by 500hr TT graduates. Find out more about the German TT here. (The German version requires self-study in English, but the Japanese version is entirely in Japanese, including the written material.)

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. :)

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 course materials with Heart of Sound, you can send request to YA for the certification.  

You're welcome to take this and any Heart of Sound training solely for your personal growth and to be part of the practice community, whether or not you seek certification.💓

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.

Yes, most likely.

You'll want to double-check with your tax preparer, but if you are in the wellness industry this course would probably be considered continuing education for professional development and be 100% deductible.

Since Anandra started teaching mantra globally in 2009, she has been living extensively in India. When profits exceed expenses, funds have been used to directly support numerous educational and social service projects in India. The Heart of Sound teacher training was also designed as an instrument to perpetuate legacy: it supports her music Guruji and his senior students to continue their musical tradition (both financially and via new student referrals).

After factoring in annual basic business expenses and modest admin + teaching salaries, our end-of-year statement usually works out to show a very small profit. (For instance, in 2019, it was $7,329.). However, we're grateful we've been able to continue to serve due to a combination of frugal management, barter, and extensive volunteer support.

Our hope is that the new online era of teaching will enable us to share the sound-based practices with more students worldwide and increase our ability to offer more scholarships as well as grow our service projects like Mantras for Peace and the Sacred Sound Stage. (To get involved, contact [email protected] to volunteer)

In each course, there's a Pay it Forward section where you can go to find out more about the specific India service projects.

If you'd feel safer to have more detailed financial transparency, you're welcome to contact us.

Yes! If talking about our unique programs and their impact on your life is natural to you, and you can think of people in your network who would benefit, we've got a partner program structure that offers generous cash bonuses (or even more in tuition credits) when people you refer buy courses.

PS. It's not spammy, it's just our way of saying "thank you" for helping spread the word about something you love.

FAQ: Does sound yoga training really WORK online?

  • Pandemic-related uncertainty
  • The deep unraveling of racism and patriarchy through the #BLM and #metoo movements
  • The rise of "conspirituality" dividing the global wellness community,
