Mata Mandir Singh Khalsa
Mata Mandir has dedicated his life to the practice and teaching of Naad Yoga – the yoga of sound. A skilful guitar, mandolin and cittern player, he is a pioneer of the yoga music genre, having recorded more than 28 CDs and cassette tapes since the late 1970’s. A longtime student of Kundalini Yoga Master Yogi Bhajan, Mata Mandir learned early on about the power of the sound current for elevation. “Yogiji told me a long time ago that if you play any instrument in a rhythmic pattern, that will put you into harmony with the whole universe,” he says. Inspired by Yogi Bhajan’s life-changing teachings, Mata Mandir then embarked on a journey of helping others come in tune with the rhythm of the universe. “Everything has a frequency and vibration, everything has its own song,” he says. “When you tune in to sounds of the world, like the sound of your breath or your heartbeat, for example, the world becomes different. You create a new intelligence in your life and you begin to see rhythm where before you only saw chaos.”

We have taught together over the past several years offering both Level 1 and Level 2 trainings in addition to workshops and seminars on related subjects throughout the United States and around the world. With one member of our team as a musician, with several recordings, chanting and music have always been a transforming part of our trainings.
