Nada Yoga | The Yoga System of Vibration and Sound

Nada Yoga is a traditional Indian philosophical, healing, and Yoga system. The idea behind Nada Yoga is that everything in the universe is built upon (the energy of) vibrations which are called Nada. Moreover, vibrations create sounds (or music), some of which we can hear and others that are beyond our hearing capacity.

In Nada Yoga a distinction is made between inner (Anahata) and outer (Ahata) sounds. It’s thought that one’s inner self has a certain unique vibration. Nada Yoga focuses on “hearing,” “listening to,” or experiencing this inner sound (music or vibration) which is said to open up the Chakras and will finally lead to Spiritual Enlightenment, union with the Divine, and Bliss.

Listening to one’s unique inner sound (and the sound of one’s breathing) is also seen as a tool to achieve calmness of the mind and a state of deep meditation.

Nevertheless, outer sounds and music can also help in various ways: resonating with one’s inner sound and thereby learn to hearing it, as a healing modality for physical, emotional, and spiritual health issues, to de-stress, relax and calm body and mind, among other benefits.

Of course, the work with inner and outer vibrations and sounds reminds us much of Mantra Yoga, Japa Yoga, Kirtan Yoga, Singing Bowl applications, and chanting techniques, which in a similar way work with sounds, vibrations, and music.
