“What a divine, blessed orchestration! This course is absolutely meticulous in the planning, goals of learning, and delivery. The depth of teaching and how it is transmitted is a powerful penetration. It takes me even deeper into the cosmic language of sound, my own heart, and relationship with my Beloved. I feel empowered, equipped and ripe to offer the Yoga of Sound in my work as a service to the world. I am humbled, grateful, inspired, expanded, stretched, nourished, and ready to lead! Immense reverence! The experience of grace, effort, and love pulsate strongly for me throughout the course.”
-Dipika, Torquay Australia (Graduate of the 200-hour RYT Heart of Sound)

You’ll have time daily to take walks in beautiful Torquay. (The beach is just a few minute’s drive from the studio.) If the weather is suitable, we may do part of our morning practice on the beach.
Also, as part of our course time, several group outings will be arranged to nearby sacred places for ceremony, practice, and meditation. (The selection of time/place is influenced by the calendar of holy days, weather and the group’s needs.)
We will have two half-days off during each 13 day module for rest and integration (and hugging koalas).
During the Torquay course, we’re honored to Stephanie Keiko Kong joining us to teach the yogāsana, compassionate communication, and support students in their Sanskrit refinement!
