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 first ever in-studio Sound Therapy + Meditation Training at ONEYOGAHOUSE. OYH Founder and teacher Anna Haddad, along with sound practitioners Brittany Simone Anderson, Mattan Sharvit, Jessica Caplan, and Florencia Fridman have created a 5-weekend, in-person training (with online supplementary lessons and study guides). 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 yoga practice and experience that will last a lifetime towards self healing and growth.

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.
