Naad Yog: Sanskrit 101 & Natural Notes
“Physical matter is music solidified.” Pythagoras
or… in Sanskrit: “Naada Brahma”, the world seen as sound made manifest.
Naad yog (sound yoga) is the practice of using sound vibrations to connect with our energic and physical bodies; the ultimate stage is to realize one’s essential unity with the Universe. This branch of yoga can have instantaneous effects, if executed correctly. Naadaalay presents a workshop by ?shīsh dh? on naad yog fundamentals – Sanskrit pronunciation, natural musical notes, mantra chanting, raags – which can be used in your own spiritual journey.
This introductory session will focus on the dual aspects of ‘svar’, a multi-layered ancient term meaning ‘that which shines on its own’, or ‘to sound’. The first aspect relates to the harmonic frequencies of the pure Indian musical notes, and the second to Sanskrit’s vowel sounds. We will learn how to correctly pronounce the ten main vowels, using call-and-response and the Roman script with diacritical marks. We will also begin our exploration of the seven shuddha (pure) notes in an octave.
The session will conclude with a short musical meditation by Ashish, giving you time to experience spontaneous sound guided by Energy ????? ? ? ?
