This is the writeup for the Nada yoga with Rajesh David from Mandala Yoga Ashram.
This seminar was held on November 21st 2015 at Rixton with Glazebrook Community Hall, Manchester Rd, Rixton, near Warrington.
“Before we make music, music has made us”
Rajesh helped us explore the vibrations in our own bodies and in nature with a variety of explanations, techniques and yoga practices. The ultimate aim being to resonate and become one with universal sound. Rajesh explained that Om is therefore THE symbol of Nada Yoga, the root of all sounds. Rajesh patiently encouraged us to learn and practice a number of musical scales and to try to internalize sounds using mantra, postures and mudras. The day included harmony & balance in postural work, chakra sensitisation using Indian musical scales and bija mantra and the importance of rhythm in Nada Yoga.
We practised Yoga Nidra and Rajesh spoke of developing a practice of meditation using sound.
Nada Yoga techniques lead to an increasingly refined tuning of our perception. Tthe resonance produced by our vocal sounds have the potential not only to energise our body & mind, but also to heighten our awareness of the Chakras.
Rajesh presented the seminar with great warmth and charm. He made some complex concepts accessible to the audience. His own singing voice, which he wowed us with during the final relaxation, was so beautiful that it really was the icing on the cake of an thoroughly informative and fun day.

The day of Nada Yoga with Rajesh David was absolutely wonderful, inspirational, uplifting & fun. Rajesh is a naturally gifted tutor and gladly shows his knowledge of yoga. He teaches from the heart. Many thanks for organising the event & really hoping you will invite Rajesh back to CYTA very soon.
Room OK? It is a big hall & thankfully yogis usually have blankets in tow!
Rajesh was wonderful & I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. It has encouraged me to include more mantra into my teaching.
Thank you for a really nurturing lovely day.
Lovely session with Rajesh.
Venue perfect as Rixton is easy access. Parking is great.
Love the room-good size, nice & quiet. Did not feel particularly cold.
Session full of heartfelt, heartwarming practices. Mantra was heaven sent! The resonance among us all was electrifying in a most calming way.
Looking forward to my next visit to Rixton.
My first CYTA event. Thoroughly enjoyed it, coming away feeling inspired & my yoga practice & understanding nourished & enhanced.
Location easy to find, parking good.
Room size perfect for number attending. Slightly chilly at times, but did not detract from the day.
Content was informative, broad in scope with a good balance between listening, being active, relaxation. First time with Rajesh & found his delivery was inspirational, authentic & from the heart.
Would recommend the day to others interested in sound, music & yoga.
To improve the experience- 2 days would have been better!
Excellent value for money.
Thank you for organising the day.
