Chanting, toning, singing, and music have formed the very basis of all spiritual and religious practices throughout time. From the  pagan to the fundamentalist and every soul seeker in between, all use sound to connect to themselves and their god.

Winter Chant Immersion and Yoga Retreat at Doe Bay on Orcas Island Yogasmith


Yoga, which can be traced back as the foundation for all spiritual practices, is essentially a practice rooted in the technology of sound. Looking back at the ancient texts, Yoga is not described in terms of postures or breathing techniques or even meditation, but as a practice of mantra and sound.

This deep rooted relationship between sound and consciousness is the basis for all forms of Yoga. All authentic Yoga practices begin and end with sound: Namaste, Om, Shanti Shanti. Indeed it is through sound that the transformation of consciousness occurs, which remember, is the very purpose of yoga.


Winter Chant Immersion and Yoga Retreat at Doe Bay on Orcas Island

So join us for an immersion into the Yoga of Sound, sonic yogis! Over the course of four days we will chant, tone, move, breath, eat great food, and chant some more, as we explore how to better harmonize with ourselves, each other, and the planet and universe we call home. This special retreat will raise your personal vibration and reverberate in the mind and body long after our time together at beautiful Doe Bay.

In between our practices there will be plenty of time to hike, browse the shops in East Sound, soak in the hot tubs, relax in the sauna, or curl up in your cabin with a good book.
