Yoga is a practice of paying attention to the inner nature of who you are. You tune the physical body first, attend to your breath next to harness te stream of emotions and thoughts. Then you develop one pointed focus needed for deep introspection / meditation. You practice all that using sound - as the most natural connector between the outer and the inner worlds. SoundMind works on the breath, one pointed focus & sound aspects of yoga, drawing from an ancient practice of the so called Yoga of Sound.
