Taz and Michelle will also be having a “Soundoff” session, where we drown out every distraction and have a YogaFaith Class along with a Guided Meditation and Nidra with the noise cancelling headphones. Nidra is used with complex trauma which you will also explore during training. These sessions are creative, fun, deep in spirit and connection with God. They are so special that we are opening up these 4 hours to others to come receive continued education or simply come experience.

With his expertise in producing and playing music for yoga and meditation. Taz’s mission is to help others to create inspiring music playlists in their classes through breath beat sequencing and other novel techniques that foster a sound healing classroom experience. Taz will be teaching you a yoga music workshop as well.

He will assist YogaFaith Trainers how to create the soundscape for their classes which enriches the yoga practice and also supports the instructor to develop their own unique sound. His workshops are designed to empower the participants to cultivate the yoga dj extraordinaire within themselves and makes one of the most intimating aspects of creating a yoga class-the music- into a simple enjoyment.
