Q: What if I have no prior training or experience in sound healing?

A: No prior experience in sound healing is necessary to enroll in the Sound Healing Rest™ program. The course is designed to accommodate beginners as well as those with some experience. We start with foundational concepts and gradually build up to more advanced techniques.

Q: I only own one or two sound healing instruments. Is that sufficient to start the course?

A: Absolutely! While having a variety of instruments can enrich your practice, it's not a requirement to begin. The course will teach you how to effectively use whatever instruments you have. As you progress, you might feel inspired to expand your collection, but it's not a necessity to get started.

Q: What if I don't have any sound healing instruments?

A: If you don't currently own any sound healing instruments, don't worry. The course includes guidance on choosing your first instrument and alternatives you can use to begin your practice. There are also many ways to incorporate sound without traditional instruments, and these methods will be explored within the course.

A: Yes, the Sound Healing Rest™ program is ideal for yoga and meditation practitioners who wish to incorporate sound into their practice. The program will provide you with the necessary skills and knowledge to integrate sound healing seamlessly with yoga and meditation.

Q: Can I take this course if I'm not a yoga teacher but interested in sound healing and Yoga Nidra?

A: Certainly! While the program is beneficial for yoga teachers, it's also suitable for anyone interested in learning about sound healing and Yoga Nidra. Whether for personal development or to start a journey as a practitioner, this course welcomes all levels of interest and experience.

Q: How much time should I commit to this course each week?

A: Ideally, you should plan to spend about 2-3 hours per week on the course. This includes the time for the live sessions (if attending live) and any additional practice or reading you do on your own. But you can go at your own pace too.

Q: Will there be opportunities for hands-on practice and feedback?

A: Yes, hands-on practice is a key component of the Sound Healing Rest™ program. You will have opportunities to practice the techniques you learn, both during live sessions and in your own time. Feedback will be provided in live sessions and through designated channels for communication with instructors and peers.

Q: What kind of certification will I receive upon completion?

A: Upon successful completion of the program, you will receive a Sound Healing Rest™ Certification. This certificate acknowledges your skills and knowledge in sound healing and Yoga Nidra, qualifying you to incorporate these practices into your teachings or personal wellness routines.
