Music moves, enriches and connects. The power of sound and music has been used, studied and explored by different cultures and civilisations since times long past.
Nāda yoga (the yoga of sound) is an ancient tradition from India. It assumes that the cosmos and everything within it consists of subtle sound vibrations (Nāda).
Through nāda yoga you can tune in to the music of your deeper universal essence.
In the practice of nāda yoga it is not necessary at all to be a “good” singer or to sing “beautifully”. You will notice how beautiful and powerful your own sound already is.
A voyage of discovery along your musical landscape.
In this nāda yoga workshop we explore the relaxing and healing power of sound, music and mantra..
We work towards expressing your inner sound through your own voice.
Nāda & Nidrā
Nāda yoga and yoga nidrā make a perfect combination.
Yoga nidrā literally means yogic sleep. It brings your body and mind into a deep state of stillness and relaxation. As if you are in a deep sleep but with full awareness and in full focus.
Concert & kīrtan
Sit or lie down and enjoy live meditation music. Solo or together with other artists, yogīs and yoginīs, I provide meditation and sound concerts and kīrtan.
A kīrtan concert is a kind of mantra sing-a-long in which the performer and the audience make devotional music together. This form of singing together is often in a “call and response” format and has its roots in the ancient traditions of India.
My music is inspired by Indian classical music with a hint of post-punk, dark wave, trip hop and folk music.
Martijn (about me)
Martijn acts, plays music, sings and makes theatre.
I’ve been on stage since I was six. years old. I have been very lucky to be able to turn that into my work later, both in front of and behind the scenes. In my late teens / early twenties I came into contact with yoga, tantra, meditation and mantra.
In Nāda Yoga, I found a way to combine yoga and meditation with music and singing, for which I completed my 500 hours teacher training.
In concerts, workshops or meditations, I play various traditional instruments (Tanpura, Harmonium, Esraj) and Handpan.
