Evidence based Yoga

The study of Heart Rate Variability has shown profound benefit for stress management, emotional balance and wellbeing. Slow breathing at just the right speed increases HRV and alters your baseline physiology in a good way.

The lessons are very practical so to graduate we just need to see you teach a 60 min class. This course is recognised by the Yoga Alliance if you choose to register, but it stands alone if your intention is to teach deep yoga classes.

The Soundmoves Method

We create music for breathing and this simply revolutionises Yoga. The Soundoves method makes the deep healing effects of Yoga practice instantly accessible by carefully crating therapeutic basics and sequences.

Soundmoves Yoga ~ explained !

Soundmoves was born from asking the question what if Yoga was redesigned using only the best therapeutic principals. Number one on the list was to incorporate a technique called resonant frequency breathing (aka coherent breathing). After experimenting with existing audio pacers to breathe with I reached out to a producer to create something fresh, thats the sounds! The moves are carefully selected from hatha yoga but also other therapeutic techniques. Read this for a detailed review of all the parts that make up ~   What is Soundmoves ?.


Hi, I am Noah Mckenna. I graduated as a Chiropractor in 2002 but straight away packed up and moved to India because Yoga was always my passion. Ive worked as a Yoga Therapist specialising in musculoskeletal injuries and as a Teacher Trainer with hundreds of graduates. After many years I wanted to get back to Yoga basics in a way that avoids physical difficulty and does not require a belief system. I realised that this would involve taking risks and I chose to tread the paths that require discernment and are evidence based.

The Advantages of Soundmoves

Transformational Yoga that tunes the nervous system ~ optimises physiology ~ balances the body

Gaining Life Energy

Soundmoves breathing tones the vagus by exercising Heart Rate Variability. It strengthens  the healing power of the body to regenerate and recharge. HRV is the key biomarker for longevity and vitality which helps for burnout, depression and anxiety. Coherent breathing creates energy abundance by maximising blood oxygen using the least amount of effort.

Healthy Mind

HRV connects  the Heart-Mind pathway increasing healing Theta waves. Soundmoves music is designed for this purpose. Enter the flow state simply by breathing in time with the music to move beyond worry and negative  chatter. Subtle sensation releases oxytocin for pure emotional security and the feeling of safety that comes with trance induction.

Physical Wellbeing

In Soundmoves yoga it is not only the Yoga postures its the carefully chosen movement patterns and therapeutic techniques that offers  an objective approach to somatic healing. A synthesis of techniques produces a state of grace by networking  synergy between agonist and antagonist partners. Free from internal tension and open to the external.

Noah is authentic and teaches with integrity and from the heart. Highly recommended if you are looking for the real thing!

Didi Bulle

You have to try at least once. It's so soothing to let yourself be guided by this special music that immerses you into an inner trance. And Noah's voice, like an angel, that helps us reconnect as soon as the mind escapes into thoughts. Noah discreetly gives a multitude of details that answer my questions sometimes even before I even wonder them. A pure moment of peace and happiness.

Amazing and beautiful teacher and the the best TTC you can get. My best life experiences in yoga so far was my teachers training with Noah. Full of integrity and true yoga experience. I would recommend it to anyone.

FAQ

When a Teacher Training course is run in-person there are rental and accommodation costs that drive up prices and limit the number of places for students. While many courses online are trying to replicate the style of in-person training there is no reason why the price has to be so high. We decided to co-create a course that supports both students and teachers and includes Yoga retreat centres through our affiliate scheme.
Not everyone wants certification - many people take a Yoga Teacher Training course just for the information and experience. Having a recognised qualification can be helpful for employment opportunities, insurance and for providing training to others.
