Sound can move mountains.
And crowds. And hearts and minds. And lives.
Sound can fuel political movements or inspire us to fall in love. Lead men to war or lull babies to sleep. Change our minds or move our feet.
Or create a universe.
Both modern science and yogic philosophy agree that the universe originated with a sound — call it OM, call it the Big Bang. The ancient yogis further recognized the power that sound has on we humans, and harnessed that power to create transformative practices that open the heart, clear the mind, bring peace, bring insight..
"Sing as if you were born to,
because you were."
~ Ann Dyer. Watch her Ted Talk "Why Sing? Why Now?"> here.
Ann's teaching of Sound Yoga is rooted in the understanding that singing is innate to being human and that listening is a full body experience. In these highly visual times rife with noise we can benefit more than ever from turning our eyes away from the screen and our attention toward our experience of sound. Ann calls on the ancient sound practices of India's yogic tradition to deepen our experience of self and of one another in our 21st century global lives.
