Yogacampus - The Art of Sacred Sound: Online
Course runs from September 2023 till January 2024
The Art of Sacred Sound course is an introduction to the elements of sacred sound instruments, vocal toning, chants and mantra singing, which will give participants the basic tools to facilitate a sound bath and to incorporate sacred sound into classes and personal practice.
This course uniquely combines singing bowl and vocal toning training, giving you the ability to help your students de-stress, feel calm and more alive with the sound of singing bowls and your voice.
The course introduces you to singing bowls, vocal toning, chants and mantra singing, space clearing with sound, and care of voice encompassing vocal techniques. All of which will give you the tools to facilitate a sound bath and to incorporate sacred sound and powerful vocal techniques into classes and personal practice.
Anne offers an invitation to explore, expand, and develop your natural healing qualities and creativity through sacred sound, singing, chanting and voice training and care. It explores the essence of sound, experiencing the ease of playing the singing bowl, singing and chanting from the heart. It will help you understand how vibration affects the body and it will help refine hearing and listening skills. The main instrument Anne will use is the Himalayan singing bowl (Goddess Bowl), in conjunction with vocal toning, (used as a sonic diagnostic tool by sonically scanning the body) and mantra and chant.
Anne will show you how to create a sound bath, how to use sound as part of your yoga classes, as well as introduce you to the hugely self-empowering techniques to share and care for your voice, how to pace your spoken word and bring chanting and song into your teaching.
You will learn how to play and place the singing bowl directly on the body’s chakras, how to tone (or tune) the body, how to pace your spoken word, chants and songs in a relaxed, loving and safe way. You will explore the ancient pathways within the heartbeat of these instruments as we organically and lovingly weave these skills into a healing savasana sound bath. We will connect and evolve within an ongoing sacred sound community.
No previous experience is necessary and the course is open to students hard of hearing.
What students say ....
I have only the highest praise for Anne Malone and her course on Sacred sound! It was one of the most enjoyable and beneficial courses I have ever attended. I learnt so much from but also, at the end of every session I felt so rested, like I had been on a little retreat! Anne has such a warm heart and a brilliant sense of humour which made everyone attending feel so comfortable and made it such a great experience! I can now confidently give a full sound bath but also have lots of little tricks to bring into my yoga classes especially during Savasana to make it even more relaxing for my students. If you are thinking of attending this course, don’t hesitate, you will enjoy every second!

All levels welcome; no experience necessary and the course to open to students hard of hearing.
