Teacher Profile - Sally Hutchison
Sally has been involved with music and singing for most of her life. She originally studied ethnomusicology with a special interest in Indian dance and vocal music and Indonesian music.
After many years of teaching and managerial roles in the education sector, several years ago she trained as a Kundalini Yoga Teacher and became fascinated with the ability of the gong to induce a deep state of relaxation that she had never experienced before, as well as the transformative effect of mantra from the Sikh tradition.
She was also involved in the Shanti Mission Harmony Centre for many years and visited Śrī Śaktī Amma Nārāyaṇī’s ashram in India where she learned more about the chanting of Sanskrit mantra in the Hindu tradition.
Sally is passionate about using meditation and sound for healing both on the physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.
More recently she has been fortunate to complete Nāda Yoga teacher training in India with Anandra George, an expert on Sanskrit mantra and Vedic chant, practitioner level Biofield Tuning with Eileen McKusick, Master Gong Practitioner Training with Mehtab Benton, Mongolian overtone chanting with Jill Purse and Tibetan mantra and bowls with Lama Tendar.
Several years ago, she trained as a Sound Healing Practitioner with the Sound Healing Academy UK and now has the pleasure of working as an associate teacher with the Academy, delivering their courses in Melbourne, Australia. Sally also conducts specialist workshops in Sanskrit mantra and mantra from other traditions.
