Private Teachings

The Naad Teaching Program contains three parts:

  • Nada Yoga: breath and energy, concentration and deep listening (inner part of Soundyoga)
  • Mantra Chanting: rhythmical reciting of a Mantra (Nama)
  • Dhrupad Music: music, which has a meter and a melody within a tonal system (Rupa)

If a student wants, he or her can focus on special parts only. Always included is:

  • Microtonal listening and singing
  • Melody and Rhythm
  • Improvisation
  • Voice Culture
  • Breathing techniques


Aana made me the Dhrupadmusic accessible in a very clear and structured way, so I was able to progress very fast. She is very dedicated and creative.

To become a true NAAD Yogi/Yogini, it is necessary to learn all three focus points – Dhrupadmusic, Nada Yoga and Mantra Chanting:

After all is to say that the NAAD Teaching Program is a complete Sound Teaching: singing Dhrupad the singer applies Yoga techniques to open all chakras. Producing a stream of sound opens the energy channels, specially the column. Kundalini is rising and greeting! Connecting sound and mind allows the singer to fully dive into a Raag, to become the Raag! Beeing advanced, the vocalist can listen to him/herself and how the Raag is singing, just letting flow the melody. This is like “surfing in the universe”… After engaging first in a more intellectual way into this music, the listener too can absorbe in this divine music. This is the pure joy of Dhrupad!
