100-hour Voice Yoga Teacher Training with Linda, Nathalie and Adam
Based on Indian classical music as a science of vibrations and Sanskrit awakening mantras, Vocal Yoga is a powerful yet gentle path of Yoga through melodic and contemplative chanting.
Harmonisation of the subtle centers and brain wave activity, balancing of the physiology and nervous system, a deep-seated feeling of well- being, joy and unity, and sharper sense of one’s essential values and missions in life, are the usual effects reported by participants.
Nathalie and Adam will introduce you to some authentic technique of Vocal Yoga, while Linda will teach you about the healing power of Yoga Pranala and initiate you to Vedic chanting.
Since 2016, the training of professors invites a deepening of knowledge and the internal journey, while benefiting from our attentive and benevolent accompaniment and this year they are joining us in Bali!

Linda Madani is a Canada-born yoga teacher registered with the International Yoga Alliance (E-RYT 500), a Certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) (certified in India and USA), as well as a spiritual healer. She arrived in Bali in 1995, and she got her first certification as a yoga teacher in 2002. In 2009 she opened the Intuitive Flow Yoga Studio in Ubud, which attracts mostly those seeking peace, relaxation, and reconnection to the source. Her teachings include Yoga Pranala, a combination of asana, pranayama, meditation, pranala mudra (Balinese tantra), mantra, hasta mudra, and Yoga Nidra. Linda has received the ancient knowledge of healing from the Balinese shaman Cokorda Rai since 1996, and she integrated it into her yoga practice. As a result, she helped many people in their healing process, slowing down to connect individual consciousness to the source, and to rediscover their spirituality. In 2019 Linda founded Nālandā School of Higher Knowledge and Bhakti Yoga, which aims to offer a more in-depth experience to those interested in learning more about the authenticity and true principles of yoga.
Initiated in yoga at a very young age, Nathalie Nichanian deepened her knowledge in India and France and has been teaching courses and workshops since 1999. She also studied Classical Singing of North India (Dhrupad) for 6 years with Yvan Trunzler and trained as an Ayurvedic therapist at the IEEV (Vaidya Atreya Smith, Dr. Sunil Joshi). Nathalie often leads the yoga sessions during the Vocal Yoga Workshops.

STUDENTS OF VOCAL YOGA WITH NATHALIE & ADAM
“Thanks Nathalie and Adam for this we filled with colors, sunshine and joy.
Everything seemed beautiful!
Your wonderful complementarity, most naturally of the world, with infinite sweetness. Just that, it’s already so beautiful to see.
And then touched, there in the heart, by this beauty of the songs, the voice of Adam, the instruments, the music, the rhythms, and even … of the intimate vibration of my voice.
And finally, without artifice, in the simple, profound and sincere experience.
Sure, you’ll see me again, for a We, a week, or a longer workshop. The future will tell me, but you will see me again:-)
When I think of you, it is the smile that comes to my lips.
And in the meantime, I have the CDs to sing and practice.”
“Singing course at the end of July in Burgundy.
I have just returned home after fruitful wanderings and I take the time, finally, to give you all my gratitude for these precious moments spent in your company,,,
I have talked a lot about you and your work, so organized, so meticulous, so rich, so authentic in the quality of your performances and your presence, that I intend to have opened doors to Aix en Provence and of course on Dijon, at the Shanti …
I listen to my little USB key in a loop, as soon as I find my privacy …
Friends, indianists before the Lord do not want to believe that Adam is not Indian … so I explain to them that it was in another life, hum, not so far away ….
I am glad to have found the way with you that finally channels the voice that is mine.
I love you and would like to find you as soon as possible
Hari OM tat Sat”
“I came back from the yoga stage of the voice (O flavor of the moment at St Usuge) transformed, physically and morally, the singing opened me to other levels of consciousness, my breathing changed, my body is loosened, thanks to the work done under your guidance, with Joy and earnestness. I BCQ appreciated the body awakening, the movements of Qi Gong, the concert of Adam at the end of each day and your songs together.
Thank you for these beautiful moments, lived within a benevolent group.
After this successful experience, my most expensive wish is to continue singing during the year in my city and to return to the workshop next summer!”

Everything done with knowing less humbleness & that lovely Balinese smile to be able to return & continue this path with so many supportive people around can only be a form of the heaven on earth. I bow to you all. Namaste. The depth of Linda’s knowledge is extraordinary, her ability to impart it even more so. She creates a symphony with the visible and the invisible, my heart sings.”
“I met Linda last year at her studio. I was drawn to Linda’s depth of knowledge and authenticity to her yoga and lifestyle. I knew from the 1st class that I attended that I would enjoy and get a lot out of her teaching. It was all I had hoped for. Thank you. I am so happy that you held space for all of us. I think of this group as wonderful extended family.”
I just wanted to thank you again for everything you did for us! I know you are always busy, but for me it is really important that you know this: It was such a life-inspiring, unique and paradisiacal experience!
I even knew this while the YTT, but now there are so many moments and things which show me, that the program you have created and your “style” is just magical! I am full of deep gratitude for everything! There are no words for this gift you gave us! It was such a life-inspiring, unique and paradisiacal experience! I try my best to share the wisdom we have received.
Thank you Linda!”
