Discover and explore your chanting voice and its healing possibilities under nurturing and supportive guidance of Sudhanshu Sharma.
A four-stringed Indian drone instrument, called the Tanpura, will provide the backdrop to paint your picture of the sound vibrations coming through you.
And this sound experience is liberating. It connects you with what’s really important, and really true, in life. No more stressing about the little things. Sing into freedom!
You will experience the deep healing vibrations of Nāda Yoga — the Yoga of Sound — in which we meditate and contemplate on single vowel sounds to create magic in our voice and our heart.
The cosmic sounds of Indian Music, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Dha and Ni, will also be a subject of our study and experience together. Together we will activate these sounds within us and begin to align our sonic practices with our spiritual journey.
You will explore the vocal movements of Indian Music, used for warming up and training the muscles to create fluidity in the voice. And discover the Swaras ~ the Do, Re Me of Classical Indian music.
All of this will culminate in a rich and therapeutic experience of the sounds of Indian Classical Music with an intimate live performance given by the master musician Sudhanshu Sharma and gifted tabla player Saptak Sharma at Manly Yoga — a once in a lifetime opportunity!

About Sudhanshu Sharma:
Hindustani Classical Vocalist – Music Teacher and Performer
Real music happens when the soul sings and the soul listens – this remains the guided force behind the Musical endeavours of Sudhanshu Sharma – an internationally respected Musician and Teacher.
Sudhanshu Sharma was initiated into music at the age of eleven as it was discovered that he had a natural ability to portray complex musical phrases easily through his voice.
He was awarded a Gold Medal in Post-Graduate Music from the University of Delhi, and later trained under Pandit Baldev Raj Verma, the prime disciple of
Pandit Amaranth and one of the torchbearers of the Indore style signing popularised by legendary Ustad Amir Khan Saheb.
With extensive training and a fresh aesthetic appeal, Sudhanshu’s singing is marked by a serene and reposeful elaboration of the Raga — far from the ostentation and showiness that usually grips a musical performance.
He seeks to remain in touch with his innermost musical impulses. He has toured the Middle East, Europe and Indonesia and has upcoming invitations to perform in the USA, Japan and Australia.
