Yoga is an over 5000 year old practice to quiet the mind and invoke a state of peace. Yoga is a spiritual system with a physical component. Nada Yoga or “the union through sound” is a healing and rewarding practice. Nada Yoga philosophy is to use chanting to connect with the breath and focus the mind.
We use sound to deepen meditation practice through singing musical scales; Mantra Japa (repetitive chanting); or Kirtan (call and response singing). With sound as its base, Nada Yoga develops the state of Dharana or one-pointed focus. Chanting is a foundation for pranayama and meditation practices in Yoga.
Teaching Yoga and Training Yoga Teachers
Alana works one on one with clients interested in learning a variety of meditation, mindful movement, and deep breathing techniques to support relaxation and balance. For those just beginning to practice Yoga postures (asanas) or those who need to discover a new physical, breathing and meditative practice, Alana specializes in adapting for comfort and stability.
As founder of 365 Well Yoga Instructor School, Alana launched the RYT® 200 Hour Dhvani Yoga Teacher Training during the summer of 2017. In this unique 200 Hour Training we study from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and gain a well rounded overview of Yoga History. We also cover the most commonly used and safest basic asana/postures taught in Hatha Yoga classes, breathing practice and meditation. This training has a specific focus on Nada Yoga, using sound and music to aid in meditation.
