Course Structure

Level 1 is a three-year programme covering the first six grades on the instrument chosen to support the voice. It covers all aspects of Naad Yoga and provides a solid foundation for personal practice, teaching, performance, and healing.

Each year of the course follows a similar structure:

  • 36 weeks of self-guided learning with online course materials, to be completed within 36 weeks.
  • 36 hours of group classes, delivered either on a monthly basis (four hours per month) or quarterly (12 hours of teaching per weekend, three weekends per year). The offered structure depends on the country and the teacher delivering it.
  • Starting in the second year, the Sangat & Seva module will give students one hour of teaching experience per week (36 hours per year) under the guidance of senior staff. This amounts to a total of 108 hours of teaching experience. Students who opt out of the Sangat & Seva module will receive the Naad Yoga Diploma certificate after completion of Level 1, instead of the Naad Yoga Teacher Training certificate.
  • 36 hours of teaching by Yogi of Sound Professor Surinder Singh on a residential intensive week in the first and second years
  • Three-month break for reflection with individual practice and projects
  • In the third year, one taught weekend and the intensive week are replaced by a two-week trip to India with Yogi Professor Surinder Singh, which also marks graduation from Level 1.

"Naad Yoga gives me some structure in my chaotic life."

- Dagmar Muller, Germany

"It deepens my understanding of the self, it provides a beautiful space to be with myself, the daily practice provides comfort and peace."

- Urs Nussbaum, Germany

"I use Naad Yoga a lot, listening to Raags while driving every day. Naad Yoga is more universal and non-religious and I love to share it at my monthly Sound Healing session at the Mental Health Centre."
