Course Details

The power of sound in the form of mantra, song, and music has been used as a tool for connection, healing and reaching higher states of consciousness since ancient times. 

In this course, I present an introduction to traditional Indian sound practices that can be incorporated in yoga, meditation, or class sessions.

Rishima Bahadoorsingh
She/her

Growing up in two worlds, within an Indian – Trinidadian family in Canada, Rishima began singing spiritual Indian songs rooted in the temple traditions of mantra, raga, bhajans, kirtan, and other devotional styles at a young age.

She went on to both study both Western and Indian music. She often stayed at her spiritual guru’s ashram to listen to lectures, sing, and engage in spiritual practices.

In 2016, her world was changed by the discovery of Dhrupad, an ancient meditative style of Indian classical music originating from the Sāma Veda. This led her to her exploration of Nāda yoga, the Yoga of sound. She is taught by Manish Kumar (Bihar Brothers), in the Dagarvani gharana, and is also deepening her Hindustani vocals with Ajivasan (India).

She has sung at local cultural and charity events, temples, workshops, spiritual centres, yoga studios, TV interviews, and festivals locally and internationally. Rishima also teaches online in Spanish and English.

Rishima is a strong believe in the positive impact of music. She is presently an elementary school teacher in Vancouver, Canada. She holds a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Development, as well as a Bachelor of Education, and a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology.
