The Yoga of Sound

Ecstatic Spiritual Awakening through Music and Mantra

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

The Yoga of Sound (Nada Yoga) is an ancient and established tradition within Indian spirituality that uses sound as the principle medium to realize the goals of yoga. Come hone the skills you need to use sound as catalyst for self-healing and attain a deeper perception with Spirit, and self-realization or enlightenment.

You will surprise yourself with what your voice can do, the places you can go to, and the healing power of sound. With sound healing pioneer Russill Paul, you will explore a combination of effortless forms of vocal expression with ecstatic live music and sacred movement to tap profound states of spiritual consciousness for stress relief and self-care, including:

  • Vocal expressions—easy and effective ways to access profound states of consciousness
  • Tongue placements—simple applications that intensify the power and potency of mantras
  • Mudras (mystic hand gestures)—graceful additions to enhance the effects of sounds and mantras in meditation.

Take home a rejuvenated spirit and a new sense of inner freedom, a deeper connection to self and the Divine, and accessible methods you can continue to use to release stress, create balance, and awaken energy in your chakras. You will also receive a handout that you can refer to for your continued practice.

Russill Paul

Founder and director of the Yogic Mystery School, Russill Paul is a pioneering figure who introduced the sonic aspects of yoga to North America. Combining world-class musicianship with exceptional teaching ability and direct spiritual experience, he teaches how to use sound with movement, meditation, and breathwork in ways that heal, rejuvenate, and awaken intense spiritual awareness.

Author of The Yoga of Sound and many best-selling chant CDs, Russill has 25 years of experience teaching at leading educational institutions in the West and facilitates an effortless learning experience no matter what level or stage you are on the spiritual path. His method translates the most powerful experiences of the Indian spiritual tradition into meaningful and accessible practices for Westerners, accompanied by extraordinary live music.

Trained as a monk and yogi in India and having taught alongside the most respected names in spirituality in the West for almost three decades, Russill ingeniously combines art, scholarship, and spiritual practice to produce extraordinary experiences. He loves to mimic his own Indian accent roots and make light of spirituality in both the East and West, but only as a balance to the depth and power of spirit transmission.
