100-HOUR SOUND THERAPY + MEDITATION TRAINING
``The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind.`` - Carolyn Myss
Therapeutic sound is now being studied throughout the West for its unique ability to make the listener feel better overall. As it grows in popularity, so do the number of scientific studies proving its efficacy. ONEYOGAHOUSE has hosted Sound Meditations since we opened our Brooklyn doors, as we believe in integrating the nuances of pranayama, sound (also known as nāda yoga), and meditation to bring fresh perspectives and richness to this growing community.
Join us for our in-studio Sound Therapy + Meditation Training at ONEYOGAHOUSE this Fall. OYH Founder, yoga teacher + sound practitioner Anna Haddad, along with sound practitioners Brittany Simone Anderson, Mattan Sharvit, have created a 5-weekend, in-person training (with online supplementary lessons and study guides). There will be special guest appearances by incredible sound practitioners (names to be shared soon) who will add layers of dimension and accessibility to the practice. This training is for those who are seeking to infuse pranayama, vocalization, and sound meditation into their teachings and self practice, as well as for those who are aspiring to work alongside sound therapists with a depth and exploration that standard classes cannot provide.
This training will take you to the next level of coming home to yourself and creating a transformative experience that will last a lifetime towards self healing and growth.

We skip Thanksgiving weekend (November 24-26th). Additionally, you will have access to pre-recorded virtual lectures to complete during the week.
What if I have to miss an in-person day of training?
We prefer that you don’t miss any days, as time has been strategically planned out. However, life happens. If you think you are going to miss a day, please let us know as soon as possible, and we will do our best to accommodate your absence, but we will not be able to make up more than 2 sessions.
Will I receive a Sound Therapy certification?
Yes, you will receive a certificate of completion from ONEYOGAHOUSE. As of now, there is no governing body equal to Yoga Alliance for therapeutic sound; however, our program is facilitated by leaders in the field of sound and yoga therapy and is a well-rounded course.
What does a typical week of sound training look like?
Our students are invited to attend sound therapy and meditations every Friday evening, followed by 2 full days of class on Saturdays and Sundays. Throughout the week, you are encouraged to practice asana and/or meditation regularly, meet with your sound partner, and watch a pre-recorded lecture and complete the reviews.

Us! We will sell instruments at OYH, but if you’re looking for something we don’t carry, we’re happy to direct you to one of our trusted sellers.
Is there any pre-reading for the training I need to do ahead of time?
Yes, the reading is included in your syllabus and manual once you register.
Do I need to be a certified yoga teacher?
Nope. While being a yoga teacher may put you at an advantage, this training is open to everyone with a passion for sound.
Will I have the opportunity to be part of the OYH Sound team?
Yes! This begins with you assisting in classes and can evolve as you grow more confident leading this sacred space.
Will there be 1:1 time with Sound practitioners?

Your Teacher: Mattan Sharvit
Mattan’s journey to lead sound has not been a conventional one. Unlike his yoga teaching, Mattan started to lead and hold space from a peculiar coincidence, from a sore place that was soon replaced with joy. He found himself naturally leading sound ceremonies, playing with the heart, feeling with each vibration.
His journey is reminiscent of the stories of his dear teachers, Colleen, Rodney, Sharon, and others who found their way to yoga by accident: one day, they found themselves in front of their class, and they knew – they were going to be yoga teachers. Mattan’s mission is to support the unraveling of the secrets of the Universe through vibration, frequency, and energy.
Your Teacher: Anna Haddad
Anna Haddad is a yoga instructor, sound practitioner, retreat leader, and the Founder + CEO of ONEYOGAHOUSE, a New York-based yoga studio with locations in Brooklyn and pop ups in Montauk. She has been a student of yoga since 2000, when she found the practice as a complement to her taekwon-do training. Yoga quickly became the one thing in her life that allowed her to tune in instead of out: at the time, she was working a demanding job in finance. Led by her intuition to open her heart and awareness, she left her job on Wall Street and completed her 200-hour teacher training at Pure Yoga in 2012.
Anna has completed over 1,000 hours of teacher trainings and mentorships with Katonah Yoga, Yogi Charu, David Shamesh (Sound Meditation) Lyt, Maya Yoga, Woom Center, Yoga Vida, and Pure Yoga, and continues her studies and trainings in functional anatomy and meditation. She is a lululemon Ambassador, Sakara Life Ambassador, and Garmin Sweat Leader.
Join Anna for her Sound Therapy + Meditation sessions facilitated by overtone-emitting instruments such as shruti box, gongs, singing bowls, chimes, drums, etc to down-regulate the nervous system, create a sense of ease and clarity, and reach higher levels of joy, peace, and consciousness.
