Nada and the Bio- Integrity of Yoga with Dayasagar

In many spiritual traditions, including yoga, the origin of creation is sound. Everything has emerged from and resolves into that very sound.

Nada is a sanskrit term referring to the primal sound or first vibration from which all creation has emanated.

Bio (biology) a natural science concerned with the study of life and living organisms.

Integrity: the state of being whole and undivided

Yoga: means union; bringing together all aspects of our being, from gross to subtle -  body, mind and breath.

With respect to this principle our yoga practice (sadhana) is essentially aimed at discovering the origins of that very sound within us. We use yoga practices to strengthen and tone the body, to help manage stress and illness, to generate vital energy (prana), or enhance our humanity, yet that is not the end of the journey.

The aim of this three-hour session is to weave the threads of our ‘outer’ yoga practices of asana (postures) pranayama (breathing practices), swara (sound) practices, into the tapestry of our more subtle being, to gain a deeper experience of the Self.

The session will be purely practice-oriented, a wonderful opportunity to not be in the mind, instead experiencing these practices from the space of the heart.

It will provide you with tools of asana,pranayama , swara practices, Yoga Nidra, meditation and mantra chanting based on the teachings of the Satyananda system of Yoga.

There will be light-hearted practices to encourage yoga from the outside in, and there will also be opportunities to sit quietly and listen deeply within.

The session is suitable for all levels of experience and abilities and may also be of interest to people who are involved in music and wellbeing modalities. Whether you are new to yoga or have a well-established home practice the group dynamic of these programs can provide wonderful insight and inspiration.

Being the first Saturday of the month, this program will be followed by the regular Manly Yoga event of Mahamrityunjaya havan and Kirtan, so there is the invitation to remain and experience another aspect of traditional mantra sadhana in a beautiful environment.

 

Date: Saturday 1 July

Time: 1 pm - 4 pm

Cost: $60 / $55 Early bird paid by 25 June

 

 

About the teacher

Swami Dayasagar has been a yoga practitioner and teacher for more than 35 years. While studying Osteopathy and Natural Therapies in the 1970s, she realised that good health and wellbeing encompass more than just physical symptomatic management, and felt drawn to the system of yoga. After college, she went to live in India at the Satyananda Ashram, living as a Sevak,

Kirtan and chanting were always an intrinsic part of her life during this time, leading to an interest in nada yoga.

She conducts yoga classes and programs in her local area and assists with programs at Mangrove Yoga Ashram.

In recent years Swami Dayasagar has become a student of tabla and Indian vocal music, appreciating the opportunity to learn the Indian tradition of music as a process of embodying nada yoga. It is also a practical means of learning to integrate head, heart and hands.
