Power of Naad and the Sacred Sound Current


5 Hours Continuing Education Credits (Yoga Alliance)

Sunday February 17th


Lifestyles Yoga Studio, Nanaimo

The Universe is made up of vibration and sound is not only a most potent tool in maintaining and creating our sense of well-being, but also can be used to heal the body, mind, and spirit.

"Naad means “the essence of all sound,” the vibrational harmony of the Infinite. Naad Yoga is based on the experience of how sound vibrations affect the body, mind, and spirit...It’s as if mantra and breath are the conductors of a symphony and you are the composer. You can change the notes of the symphony, to create chords of happiness, sadness, vitality, or calmness. This capacity is inherent in our design and requires no special drug or belief. This process of creation exists because every one of our molecules is in communication with every cell and thought. The power of mantra uses sound, breath, and rhythm to command our mind, brain, emotions, body, and actions." ~ Excerpts from The Aquarian Teacher Level 1 Training Manual

We will Explore:

  1. Experience the sacred sound current through mantra, breath and rhythm.

  2. Learn Meditations to support your nervous system, and "change the channel" of self-defeating patterns.
  3. Learn the philosophy of naad, laya and shuniya.

The Grounding Power of the Root - Releasing Fears with Kundalini Yoga


With Jay Suttonbrown, E-RYT 500

Being completely present with yourself can be hard to do. We can go through great lengths to be numb ourselves from this feeling on a daily basis through our choices, and most especially our thoughts. Being in this world is having both feet rooted in the ground while having the human experience. Being grounded also makes you committed to your path and helps put into action that which you see from the higher centers.

When we are grounded we are more able to do the big emotional work of acceptance.”  Gurmukh

“The barriers to change lay deep in the subconscious and are not easy to access with your rational, thinking mind. These blocks can be released through the chakra balancing practices of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation.” Gloria Latham

“Acceptance is the opposite of judgement.” Jay Suttonbrown

Join Jay Suttonbrown, E-RYT 500 for a powerful workshop designed to awaken your power and potential with Kundalini Yoga. Hosted by Jan Norman Yoga, come and discover how to source the gifts of the first chakra, and surrender the shadow aspects as we clear blocks related to fear, worthiness and lack. This workshop is sure to leave you with clarity, insight, and will empower your possibilities.
