Gitananda Nāda Yoga: The Chant of Pranava AUM (75 – 90 min)

In this theoretical and practical seminar we will study the pronunciation, intonation and vocal resonance of Pranava AUM, the supreme Mantra that contains, like a seed (bija), the Cosmic Vibration. We will practice, in the tradition of Yogamaharishi Dr. Swami Gitananda Giri Guru Maharaj (icyer.com), sectioned lung breathing that supports the three sounds of the mantra, and we will practice 27 japas (repetitions) of the Mantra as a devotional offering.

The Nature of the Voice and the Voice of Nature: Ecology of Song (60 min)

This is an experiential lesson in which participants will be invited to walk in nature in a contemplative, slow and deep way, listening to their own breath and the sounds of the surrounding environment. Through guided vocal improvisation exercises, we will consciously experience the power of our vibration, cleaning and regenerating the inner ecosystem, and creating harmony between this and what surrounds us.
