What is Yoga of Sound ?
(Testimonials below) KIRTAN or Yoga of Sound (Naada Yoga ) is a "musical meditative " yoga, a musical expression of the soul. We chant “mantras” in a kirtan. It is a “yoga” of sound, where we use a call and response experience. It is not about the musical aspect but the heart aspect that leads us to a peaceful, meditative state.
Chanting ancient mantras and prayers allows us to tune our whole being, mind, body, and Spirit to the One Source, to the One God.
"Kirtan" is a Sanskrit word for group musical expression of the Divine Spirit within. Chanting together as one, we raise the level of our own vibration to a high spiritual state where we can actually feel and experience our Divine nature. Chanting is possibly the most effective means of directly experiencing our spiritual nature. It is a meditation practice...

What is Yoga Voice?
Yoga Voice is a "Sound" Yoga or Naad Yoga , where we use our unique voice to connect within ourselves.The power of chant /using our voice involves bridging the two worlds of humanity and eternity. It allows a person to touch a deeper world that is organic and flowing. Chant has no set rhythm, and is based on the breath in combination with tonal patterns of sustained vowels.To create vibrations that elevate is the goal of Naad Yoga.Using mantra to create these vibrations is the highest form of self-communication.
Chanting is an easy tool because you can chant anywhere—out loud or silently—and change your state of being. When we chant ancient, sacred and uplifting mantras that inherently have a high frequency, our tongue touches the roof of the mouth in a very specific manner. This creates a chain reaction resulting in a change in the chemical composition of the brain. When the chemistry of the brain is balanced, our state of mind and outlook on life improves dramatically. We simply feel better.In Kundalini Yoga, we use a technology that is called Shabd Guru.
Shabd Guru is a very special sound current that uses the technology of the Naad Yoga. Therefore it is not just any sound, but a primal sound. Each primal sound is a unit that is pronounced by a particular part of the mouth. When we form a word and we speak it, we utilize the 84 meridian points on the roof of the mouth to stimulate the hypothalamus to change the chemistry of the brain. Not every combination of sounds or words will create patterns of healing or wholeness – therefore the Shabd Guru is unique.In the science of Naad, there are three key elements that enhance the experience. Rhythm, projection and pronunciation. Maintaining a precise rhythm of the mantra as well as maintaining the correct number of beats with the mantra is crucial to its effectiveness. For example, many Kundalini mantras are chanted in eight beats. Any mantra chanted with eight beats is an Ashtang Mantra. Example:RA MA DA SA- SA SAY SO HUNG - ( Siri Gaitri Mantra)

What is a Yoga Voice Workshop ?
A Yoga Voice workshop works with both the body and the voice with a focus on deep breathing and relaxation exercises aimed at releasing vocal and physical tensions and explore chanting with traditional and effective techniques for improved health, vitality and projection...
The use of Mantras for Chanting-
We use mantras which are sacred texts when we chant. Mantras can excite the emotions and give suggestions to the mind and therefore bringing calm to the mind and spirit. Mantras affect both the one who sings them and the one who hears them. The word “ mantra” comes from Sanskrit word “mantrana” which means advice or suggestion.
Tra = Calm/soothe

“ Beautiful experience! I'm grateful to take part in Lea's kirtans.... thank you to her, Rad, Joseph and all who were there. I have the cds and enjoy doing kirtan singing anywhere, especially in the car! ”
“ Lea and Rad are a rare kirtan duo in Montreal. We are lucky to have such beautiful talents! ”
“ The more I participate in yoga chanting, the more I feel the benefits. This was an amazing experience that everyone should try and pursue. Once again a big thanks to Lea and Rad for guiding the session, and thank you to all who came to set a record high attendance at Yoga Bliss studio! ”
Brian (member)"it was quite beautiful, we are lucky to have this in Montreal. Thanks Lea, Rad and Dan and Marc for organizing
“ Meeting Lea for the first time was enchanting. Such a beautiful vibrating energy and such a powerful voice. I personnaly can't hold a note, but last night, I couldn't help but sing and I sang with my hearth and I loved it!... I loved being part of the group, singing the mantras together, one voice, one heart. Namaste!
“ i loved the evening of chanting. Lea has a beautiful voice. It i was my first experience but definately not my last. I will now meditate on my own as I was so inspired. ”
“ another GREAT experience. It keeps on getting better and better. The voices, the vibes, the energy and the great feeling of being one with all and everybody! The amazing freedom to just BE. Namaste to Lea and her beautiful voice.. ”
"Not really knowing what to expect (I'm used to more traditional settings for kirtans), I was pleasantly surprised. No, not surprised actually, rather feeling comfortably welcomed with open arms and heart, providing openness in me as well. All the musicians were top top notch and blended beautifully in the chants, rather than taking over. Lea herself is very generous and obviously a great lover of however you call which makes us all unique and at the same time all the same. To give yourself to such chanting is to find yourself."
