Nada Yoga Retreat
July 26 – August 2, 2019
Immerse yourself in Nada Yoga during this seven-day retreat in picturesque Hellenthal, Germany. Nada Yoga is the Science of Divine Vibration, and one of the six main systems of Sampoorna Yoga. With the guidance of Nada Yoga master, Shri Yogi Hari, you will explore and experience this transformative practice each day during morning and evening Satsang and afternoon workshops. Throughout the day, you will also enjoy Sampoorna Hatha Yoga classes, living in a community of like-minded individuals, surrounded by the beautiful forests of western Germany.
In this retreat, we will explore Nada Yoga in some of these subjects.
- The theory of Nada Yoga.
- Chanting, Mantras, Kirtan, Shlokas, and Bhajans.

- Exercises to develop rhythm and balance.
- Alankar- exercises in the natural scale and other scales to develop your awareness of the 12 notes that are the foundation of all music.

- This science has its roots in the Vedas and was explored and transmitted by Nada Yogi Seers and Rishis who used it to reach the Divine. The vehicle for its transmission is Indian Classical Music in the form of Mantras, Shlokas, Chants, Kirtan, Bhajans, Ragas, and Talas.
