Anna Meher has been sharing Naad Yoga since 2013. A physicist by training, she approaches the inner reality of meditative experience with a searching eye for sense and unity. Fluent in four languages, her encounter with Gurmukhi poetry and its fascinating resonance with the human psyche, has pointed her to the inherent oneness within all.  One of many gifts from the 3 year Naad Yoga Teacher Training with the Raj Academy in London and India, under the guidance of Yogi of Sound, Surinder Singh.  Meher is member of the Naad Yoga Council and teaches in Minneapolis, MN. 

 

Testimony of a Naad Yogi

Life is full of wonders, clues and challenges. Unlocking them is our learning journey. I found out on mine, crossing continents and cultures, that there is a simple way: listen to that, that belongs to all of them and none. It is your inner song. It points you like a compass to your needs and purpose. It can guide you in all spheres of life. I have faced the excitements and demands of the workplace, eluding the subtle threads of motherhood, until they stretched no more. When yoga crossed my path again, beyond the hatha style from my early age, through kundalini yoga, I encountered mantra. Mantra, in a language, so distant from my mind, and yet so near, that I knew it in an instant. No, it was not French, not German, English, nor Bulgarian. Mantra travels heart to heart, a legacy of humans that have lived their inner song, fully unobstructed. The Gurmukh poem said  “simare”, and I did, somehow. Through a veil of tears came a primal memory. I felt my prison melting and knew that part of me has always been and always will be. A breeze of eternity, a stroke of Naad, the sound of consciousness. So Naad Yoga it had to be. Training with Prof. Surinder Singh and the Raj Academy transformed me inside out. I was grounded, searching and on track. One is sure, I have found the way of sound. Work, partner, children and commitments are the school of life, to grow the mastery and knowledge, that come through Naad.  Practical, portable, always within reach. All you need is courage to overcome yourself. No shadow can be faced in pure solitude. Embracing the endeavors of a teacher, I share Naad Yoga so others may find peace and guidance in their inner realms. As awareness grows, so do I, with gratitude and kindness.
