Sadhana of meditation ' Nada Yoga-Yoga of the sound '

Since Aushadhi School of Yoga, Eva Espeita is the fourth edition of this course-sadhana (practice person) of Yoga of the sound with a proposal that addresses the practical and academic aspect of a yoga way quite unknown in our country although increasingly opening up more.

If it exists in the mystical traditions of the India, a sensory environment privileged at the time of approach to the understanding of the ineffable, this area is without doubt the of the sound. Similarly, if there is a particularly effective and immediate support to silence the mind and access States of balance, deep concentration and meditation, that stand is undoubtedly the meditative experience with sound. The Nada Yoga or Yoga of sound It is the path of yoga (a path often cross, because working with sound is present in all the other paths) whose way is, in one way or another, in the attention to the sound vibration.

Picking up the baton from different traditions of yoga and mysticism sound (no Yoga, Tantra, Vedanta, Bhakti, Dhrupad), using more contemporary proposals (Deep Listening, modern techniques of overtone singing) and above all, our dedicated expertise and research environment to these practices, their sense and its effects, propose a sadhana Yoga of the sound where we have synthesized and unified various practices in a unified and progressive, full range of spiral structure. The aim of this course, in addition to being an introduction to the sense and anything Yoga theory It is, first of all, introduce, accompany and guide students in this series-sadhana practice.

Along the road towards the awakening of consciousness that is proposed to us by the ancient Yogis, Nada Yoga Practice assists us and accompanies the process of silence and pacify our minds (abandoning patterns of stress and dispersion), harmonize our body and feelings, focus attention and develop concentration, free from direct and effectively blockades hindering us vitally, thus arousing our potential in terms of health, communication, creativity... First and foremost, the Yoga of sound operates in growing our presence, of our full attention to the experience of the present moment, only possible key to the fullness.

The universe, say the ancient mystics, is essentially vibration. Our bodies (themselves) are essentially vibration. The past, present and future of manifest existence are, in their latest and subtlest Stadium, vibration... therefore sound, music. In the listening of nothing, as in the articulation of sadja, as in the repetition of a mantra, as in the free flow by the waves of the Raga, we connect with the primary source, with our latest, vibrational nature. We get lost to find ourselves. We lose our ego to find our essential being. We transcend ourselves.


In a sadhana, built in five phases in a cumulative, unified personal practice will begin at students in the theory and practice of the following meditation techniques of Yoga of the sound:

  • Outer meditation through comprehensive development practices of the deep listening to different sound sources (human, environmental instruments).
  • Inner meditation practice on the refined listening to the inner primordial sound(nothing anusandana) from the Tantric tradition.
  • Meditation practices active in opening the voice and breath through exercises selected from pranayama, as well as an adaptation of specific methodologies coming from the Canto Dhrupad based on the line (samvad) with the sound the instrument-generated refrain Tampura: Karaj (search the lower tones and its resonance in the body) and Akar (articulation of the vowel "a") and the pursuit of the Svar or tuning.
  • Phonetics, articulation and metric of the Sanskrit language and its use in the edge of the Vedic mantras (from the monotonous singing up to three so-called "magical" notes that make up all the Vedic chant: udatta, anudatta and svarita), use in mantras and traditional syllables of the Dhrupad and in the bijamantras tantra.
  • Practices of meditation and subtle harmonization through a work ofvisualization of the ascent and descent of the energy through the central channel through the simultaneous singing of the bijamantras traditional tantra related to the energy centers of the body and Ragas (Indian modal scales born of the tradition of nothing yoga), whose different grades can also correspond with the vibration of the
  • The mantra or pranava OM in those texts, the tradition and the practice as mantra central of all the tradition sound of India.
  • Comprehensive task of understanding of the relationship between melody and rhythm, as the basic components of all the musical phenomenon, and how symbols and clear experiences of space and time in our lives.
  • The phenomenon of music in the human being as a means of transformation and healing from the physical to the subtle and the relationship between the devotional emotion (bhava bhakti) and technical precision in execution.
  • Study of the phenomenon of sound in the traditional texts:Vedas, upanishads, yoga-sutras, tantras and shastras.

  • Yoga practitioners who wish to deepen the study of this tradition, as well as teachers or teachers who want to develop a genuine and complete practice.
