An Experientual Journey in 10 Days

The Program is Created For Everyone:

  • Deepen Your Connection with Your Heart: As a sacred ritual and practice throughout the ages, bhakti is steeped in deep connection with yourself, your heart and the divine.  You will touch parts of yourself you may have long forgotten, only to remember you’ve actually never lost it at all. 

  • Ancient Mantras and Sacred Sound: In the beginning was “the word”, AUM, OM, Naad, Sound, the Big Bang.  Whatever you want to call it, it’s all the same.  Learn, explore and practice the ancient meanings, translations, interpretations and essence of ancient Sanskrit mantras, their significance and importance to spiritual development.  

  • Compliment Your Skillset: If you’re already teaching Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin or other styles of Yoga, adding bhakti is a beautiful and complimentary addition to your existing yoga classes and a wonderful way to further connect with your existing students or expand and attract new ones.

  • Learn a New Instrument! The Harmonium is a wind instrument and has several reeds (male and female) tuned to create its individual sound and vibration. While its origins are from the West’s piano like Organ, the Harmonium was made popular in India and is the predominant instrument found in spiritual folk music known as Kirtan.

  • Power of Your Voice! There is great strength, power and confidence when you know how impactful your voice to the world can be.  Bhakti, devotional singing and devotion isn’t about how “good” you can sing or not, it’s about connecting your vibrational frequency to the devotional frequency of the Universe so that your Heart connects with the Hearts of everyone else.  Your voice can be a healing instrument to everyone you meet. 

This Program is Perfect For: 

Designed for Spiritual Seekers, Bhakti Devotees, existing Yoga Teachers, Yoga Practitioners or anyone who simply wants to express the power of their voice, this program is created for:

  • Yoga Practitioners who want to add more devotion and mantras to their personal spiritual practice

  • Yoga Teachers wanting to compliment their current yoga classes with mantra, chanting & singing

  • Spiritual Leaders or Wellness Coaches who want to build a larger student connection or following by giving their clients more than physical wellbeing

  • Seekers who are simply curious about exploring their own voice, learning the harmonium, experiencing the path of bhakti and everything it entails    

This immersive course will deepen your connection to yourself, crack open your heart, make you feel truly connected and truly remind you of the power of your voice, speaking your truth and invoking the divine within.  

Be treated to a luxurious retreat whilst training, singing surrounded by the beauty of Uluwatu Bali at the legendary and unique Alchemy Yoga Shalas.

“My last few hours in Bali, what a life changing journey. I came home to my voice. Not just to entertain others but to bring more joy to myself. I dived deeper into my own truth. There were parts of this week that I felt vulnerable, scared & truly out of my depth. But here I am & that's where the magic happened. My heart is more open than ever. If there is one advice I can give you - just try that thing that pushes you out of your comfort zone. Explore your own self further & further - it's the more extraordinary adventure you will have.

Thank you for holding me with all your grace & wisdom Audrey Sarquilla”
