Naad Yoga dates back to Ancient India and teaches self - mastery through the use of Sound. “Naad” (in Sanskrit) is generally translated as “universal sound current” and describes any sound which is audible to the human ear. Through Sound, we communicate our thoughts and feelings to the outside world, and Naad, therefore, can be called the Sound of emotions. The term Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word “Yog” or “Jog” which translates as “union” or “capability” to unite all aspects of one’s being.
It is a transformative process of bringing discipline into life and nurturing our inner capability to unite the physical body, the mind, and the soul - the three main elements of existence. Naad Yoga, therefore, means “Yoga of Sound” or “Alchemy of Sound”.
The goal of Naad Yoga is to achieve a state of Oneness by developing one’s innate capability to listen, communicate and create a balance between the body, mind and soul. When practising Naad Yoga, we engage in an alchemical process, where feelings and emotions are transformed and refined using the medium of Sound. As a result, we grow personally and spiritually and gain the ability to transform pain and suffering into bliss.
