LEVEL 1 TESTIMONIALS:
"My experience in this 3-month trip was very beautiful, it was enriching, joyful, inspiring and magical!!!
I recommend doing the training for those who are interested in acquiring simple and practical knowledge about singing techniques and musical accompaniment; and above all in learning various very beautiful and powerful mantras and medicine chants to be able to use them as tools of personal sanction in our daily lives.
In short, what I take away from this space is having been able to experience music, vibrate with its energy and expand it to the world from my heart and singing with others, that reconnected me with the certainty of unity!" - Ignacio Cánepa. 1st formation in 2020.
"Thank you Sabi and Juan, what meaning has this training had for me? I'm not a singer, I do not play instruments, however my heart was filled with love and my light expanded making all the magic of the mantras sprout in my voice.
From the hand of two great Masters my Being took another leap in my evolution, thank you always Thank you. Namaste, Hari Om. All my love for you" - Mónica Babugia. She made the 1st formation in 2020.
"Song and Music is me. Sound and color, word, movement and dance". A. Raven Quote
"During these three months, Sabina and Gea guided me. I was able to listen and listen to myself, share from another deeper place, listen to my heart and soul. We sang Mantras and Medicine chants, to add instruments to those who wanted. In my case, I Mantras help for Yoga classes. I recommend this experience for those who want to start on the path of music, whether they are professionals or not, to be able to enrich themselves with the companions of the Path. I appreciate being part of this Training." Mara Saccani. Made the 1st formation in 2020.
"It is not possible for me to express in a few words an opinion of the course because it is wonderful, the way in which each class and each mantra penetrated me was and is very strong, to the point of feeling how deep knots were being unfastened.
A special workshop, full of love, to learn to connect with oneself and with higher consciousness. I consider that it was an essential element in my path of knowledge, not only in the possibility of expressing myself through the voice, of generating openness, but also of being able to vibrate in the energy that emanates from each mantra that transforms the body and the environment where are.
I have nothing but words of gratitude for the respect, harmony and love with which he dictates this workshop. Highly recommended for anyone who needs to express themselves, connect and break fears. Infinite thanks." - Yanina Sturatis. Completed the 1st training in 2020.
We are passionate about sharing the paths that transformed our lives: the wisdoms that we absorbed through our travels through the Himalayas, the Andes and the Amazon. For the last 6 years we have been taking people on retreats to celebrate life in nature and in community, to sing and dance, to connect with the spirit of the Earth and with our true essence.
Our mission in Yoga and Sound is to share transformation tools to realize our true nature, that of harmony, presence and happiness. We offer a unique combination of retreats using the practice of asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra, kirtan with the sound of ethnic instruments and ancient and traditional songs, and medicine music, as a vibrational therapy to expand consciousness and connect to Mother Earth and to the Great Spirit.
My relationship with music began at a very young age. At 8 years old I took my first steps with the guitar. So great was that passion, that at the age of 14 I began to study at the conservatory of classical music. At the conservatory, I specialized in guitar, piano, and orchestral percussion. It was 8 years of deep study of the theory and practice of music. At the same time I was already composing and recording my own music.
My bond with the voice began when I was a child, singing popular music and also at the classical music conservatory where I learned the use of the voice and working with choirs.
My approach radically changed after several master plant rituals. where the use of the voice became a tool for expanding consciousness and healing. That's how I discovered another way of relating to music and sound. After several trips to India, devotional chanting also left a strong mark on me, experiencing the healing power of circle chanting, chanting towards the sacred and pure.
I have been researching the relationship between sound, art and healing for several years. I have been deeply marked by the guidance of Amazonian and Andean shamanic teachers, transpersonal psychology, Vipassana meditation and self-inquiry. This led me to share self-knowledge tools through art and deep meditative practices.
Spirituality lives in all things, every experience, every day of our lives is an opportunity to reach our essence. Music, sound and the arts are doors that lead us there.
My mission is to share in workshops, retreats and concerts all the magic experienced in this exciting world of devotional music and medicine, where art and healing merge to create a powerful transformation tool.
My relationship with music and singing began at the age of 15, when I discovered my older brother's CDs and asked for a guitar as a gift. Although what I wanted most in the world was to be a professional musician, I let myself be carried away by other academic paths, and I always felt that because I had not graduated from a conservatory, I was not adequate enough. I did the Integral Formation of the Singer with Marcela Aibé at the age of 22 and then I had several bands where I sang, but always with a certain discomfort of showing myself in public.
In 2014, on my first trip to India, I entered a kirtan in an ashram for the first time. I sat in a circle on the floor, with no real separation between the musicians and the rest. An Indian woman played and sang. I noticed that she closed her eyes at first and for two hours she did not open them. Each time his face expressed more love and dedication. His voice came from the heart. It was not a show, but she seemed to be in a state of deep inner ecstasy. Where had her mind gone? Had she forgotten she was there with us? What was she thinking? Where was her heart? That experience of dedication and meditation marked me. Wherever his soul in joy was, I wanted to go. Could someone give me the key to that door?
Still not knowing what I was reciting, I closed my eyes and began to sing and understand from experience that the vibration of the words is what lifts us into a meditative state. I had been infected and was floating in a cloud, several meters above the ground and neither she nor anyone else in the room wanted to go down.
As I deepened my path in Yoga, the practice of Bhakti Yoga (the Yoga of devotion) gifted me with many insights. I always knew that music had a main role in my life. But it was not until I sang mantras and medicine music from the heart that I did not understand the depth of this path and this infinite love. Since I connected with my voice in this way, many new doors have opened synchronously, such as being able to accompany various master plant ceremonies with my voice. I discovered that many different voices inhabited me and that encouraging myself to play with them made me feel free and happy. I delved into the path of devotional singing with Harmonium with Neeti from Devi Music Ashram, in India, and with Yasia Leiserach in a Bhakti Yoga training, in England, where we explored various techniques to free the voice. I also explored drum singing with Yael Haboulafia.
Chanting is a blessed tool, a key to the afterlife. I sing the different names of the sacred, whatever name you want to give to the highest thing you can perceive: nature, God. I enter altered states of consciousness singing, opening my expression, opening my heart. Ananda. I enter a space of immeasurable bliss and vibrate high. I have been singing from the depths of my soul for 6 years, in kirtans, ceremonies and rituals. I know that with the voice and the instruments, I can channel different voices, that lift me up and take me on a journey, that move the fibers of those who listen to it. That is my role, to let the voices pass. And when I free myself, I inspire you to free yourself a little more. And when you free yourself, you inspire me to be a little freer.
We wait for you with love to walk this path together,
Gaia & Sabina.
