About the course

What will I learn

The practitioners will acquire a comprehensive understanding of the therapeutic aspects of music with a specialized focus on the technique of activating Chakras through the use of Ragas. They will learn how to select and perform specific ragas for Chakra activation and learn how to apply music and breathing techniques. The practitioner can then listen and meditate on specific sounds and learn singing techniques that they can practice on their own.

Benefits of this course

The harmonizing and balancing effects of Ragas on the Chakras help regulate energy flow within the body, promoting a sense of inner harmony and emotional stability. Through the practice of specific Ragas, practitioners can develop greater awareness of their emotions, thoughts, and impulses, enabling them to exercise conscious control over their actions and responses. This process enhances self-discipline, emotional regulation, and the ability to make conscious choices, ultimately empowering individuals to build and strengthen their self-control abilities.

Incorporating in my life

The practitioner must practice Nada Anushandhan for a duration of 30-45 min in a routine manner, preferably in the morning.
