What is Nada Yoga?
In short, Nada Yoga is “union through sound”. The union of body, mind and spirit.
Nada Yoga is a branch of Yoga in which transformation is brought through the Shabd or Nada. The nearest translation of Shabd and Nada is sound or vibration. But Shabd or Nada are not the same as sound because they can be produced either by striking two objects known as Ahata sound or without striking two objects which is called Anahata sound. Anahata sound can be heard at the Anahata or heart chakra. Nada has the same place in Yoga as energy has in science.
We can’t see energy, but we can feel it as vibrations. All energy, all vibrations generate sound.
Sound is one way for us to experience this energy.

What our students are saying?
The amount of knowledge that I have obtained at Nada Yoga School is life-changing. Thank you so much. I really appreciate the depth of knowledge and experience of all teachers. So I grew an enormous amount intellectually, spiritually and emotionally over the four weeks. I appreciate its clarity, commitment and broad knowledge and experience. Once again, it is more than just an education, it was a life affirming experience. I highly recommend Nada Yoga School to anyone looking to receive 200-hours certification!
An amazingly comprehensive and complete course! under the highly accomplished Yogacharyas: Kamalji and Mohanji's guidance, the progression of yoga skills appear smooth and natural over time. Daily Pranayama and Shatkarma are energizing. Lessons in Physiology of Yoga made us aware of correct muscle and bone involvement in various asanas. This awareness is necessary for anyone practicing yoga. Ayurveda philosophy of knowing one's dosha helped me in getting to know my body. The lectures by Dr. Jivasu on Yoga philosophy and meditation were mesmerizing! I highly recommend this course if one is serious about learning Yoga and Meditation.
The yoga teacher training course at Nada Yoga School was a wonderful way for me to explore and experience yoga, meditation, mantra and music. All the teachers were masters in their art and provided a great stage for the group to growing and of course, laugh! Beautifully nested in the himalayan foothills, this is an amazing place to practice yoga and meditation.
I really enjoyed this course. I not only learned proper alignment for my asana practice, different styles of meditation practices but I learned how to dissolve my past histories and emerge in this present moment fully activated and at peace within my body and mind. Along this path of inner transformation at which I am still on, I found myself joined and emmersed within a greater community, a precious family.

The 200 hour course at Nada Yoga School is very intense at times but definately essential for those wishing to become teachers. The course gives a good background knowledge of theory, as well as practice. The teacher are very professional and supportive to students. I have enjoyed the course very much and made many friends.
Ever since I started my physical practice of yoga, I also became fascinated with bakhti music (devotional music). After which I decided to find a school that could teach me both. And, Nada Yoga school was the right choice. I believed music can be practiced as yoga, and this yoga course really deepened my knowledge in this science. But most of all, I was blessed to meet dedicated teachers like Bhuwan Chandra (school’s director and Nad Yoga Master) and the team of Great Yoga Teachers who made me feel at home during the course and made the experience a memorable one, that one can never forget.
