Who is this retreat for?
This retreat is for those interested in using sounds to heal, open and express a freedom through sound regardless of previous experience. Whether you are an expert, or a beginner when we come together with open hearts and unite our voices, we dissolve into one.
The Yoga of Sound is an aspect of Nada Yoga.
Nada is a Sanskrit word that means sound. Though the practice of Nada Yoga is not one specific practice it covers a wide range of practical exercises. Some practices include vocal play, singing, sounding the Indian scales and mantras. Part of Nada Yoga is learning to fine-tune your ability to listen to audible and inaudible sounds, which is an aspect of subtle vibration.
BENEFITS OF NADA YOGA
- Greater awareness and presence through deep listening practices
- Deeper breath for improved health
- Transforms stuck emotions
- Deeper meditations
- Inner peace and joy
- Builds your confidence to express and communicate more freely
- Expanded consciousness, creating new neurological networks in the brain
- Releases endorphins (the brain’s “feel good” chemicals)
- Increased energy (sounding moves inner pranic energy & increases your energy)
- Improved communication
- Stronger speaking/ teaching voice
- Quiets inner chatter and thoughts
A GIFT TO YOUR SELF
Gift to yourself the nourishment of making an offering unto you. Connect to Mother Earth and her elements. Allow your heart and soul to be fed by the healing powers of sound while combining time away for yourself.
A JOURNEY OF A LIFETIME!

This retreat is a unique opportunity to experience the blending of Sequoia and Sparrow’s combined years of expertise in the world of sound medicine and yoga merged with the loving care of a beautiful, tranquil ashram location.
This is a unique offering in mystical India at the base of the Himalayan mountains. You will be rejuvenated and invigorated as there will be ample free time to relax and enjoy combined with profound, peace-filled, informative and ecstatic sound experiences and learning.
You will be inspired, finding a deeper understanding of self and resting in the peace of your love and worth.

Come embrace the mystery of Ancient India and come sing, meditate, play, swim, and sound with us in Ancient India.
