15 Hour Online Continuing Education

Art of Chanting

The human voice is a powerful, beautiful instrument & this chanting course is designed to give you the tools to share & cultivate this phenomenal gift in your classes & personal practice.

By exploring the history of chant we create a solid foundation for understanding why we chant. Our journey into anatomy will give you a clear understanding of how the body produces sound, show you exercises to support the singing structure & discuss perspectives on vocal technique. Basic Sanskrit pronunciation is reviewed, as well a foray into the world of vibrations & cymatics of chanting.

The aim of this program is to increase your confidence in sharing your voice through chant. Confidence comes through repetition. The program includes additional recordings which are there to use as a practice guide, chanting along, strengthening your voice & giving you space to explore your own sound.

Chant opens the heart & makes love flow.

Mark Atherton

I always loved to move my body, I was obsessed with gymnastics as a child and was intrigued by the shapes I was able to find with practice and discipline.

As a young adult I continued to explore the capability of my body but my focus moved to music, and I fell in love, this time with opera. I studied singing, obtained a degree in opera performance from The University of British Columbia, and worked diligently toward a career in music.

As I moved towards crafting a life as a performer, teaching singing came to me naturally and guiding others to explore their voices became my focus. I felt something missing however, a void that music alone wasn’t fulfilling.

After a little searching I found myself in a yoga class. I couldn’t believe how incredible it felt to reconnect with my body in ways similar as to when I was a child. It took a year of regular classes before I knew I wanted to dive in deeper into understanding yoga and embarked upon my first teacher training. It was during this training that I felt a massive shift. Yoga philosophy, Buddhism and the ideas contained within these teachings gave me a whole new set of tools with which to understand myself and those around me. Meditation, philosophy study and a consistent asana practice changed everything, including my path through life.

I began to focus on teaching yoga full time. I found ways to integrate my love of music and singing into my yoga classes. Through yoga, all the varied and diverse aspects of myself were coming together and finding their home.

I feel so empowered by the teachings that have been shared with me, the big and subtle shifts that have occurred through creating a kinder relationship with my body and mind, that having the opportunity to share this with others through yoga programs, is a joy. I am so blessed to be part of a team of like-minded humans who are passionate about sharing the transformational power of yoga and sound.

I welcome you to explore the Art of Chanting.

Mark is a certified Yoga Teacher Trainer (ERYT 500). He is also formally trained in Opera and Classical Music through the University of British Columbia's, School of Music.

Is age an issue?

Do I automatically graduate, or receive a certificate if I pay for the course?

Successful students must receive 70% or more to receive certification. 2 attempts for all evaluations are allowed.


What does self-paced, on demand learning mean?

What this means is that the program does not require any group study, or attending particular tutorials at specific points in the training. You set the pace for your learning. You move through the curriculum when and as you want. Students can go back and review sections as many times as needed. The entire program is pre-recorded so that it is on demand, available to you, always.


When I go to purchase the course, I see an extra charge ~ why is that?

If you are in the UK or the EU, there will be an automatic addition for the VAT taxes. The system recognizes that your devices' IP address is located in these countries. Because of tax treaty laws, we cannot amend that. If you are in other areas, such as Canada or the US, there will be a different tax applied, depending on where you are located. Certain jurisdictions, do not have taxes. Also, any | all taxes collected are on behalf of the governments, and do not come to us directly; they are remitted immediately, to the applicable tax agency.


Are there any live sessions in the program?

No, the entire program is on demand. However, if it will help a student's learning, we are always open for video calls and discussion.


Once I begin the program, how long do I have to complete it?

This is the beauty of online yoga teacher training. It is a completely self-paced program - you decide when you start and when you finish. Ideally, working through the program without large gaps in time works best, but we appreciate that life is complicated.


How long will it take me to complete the program?

This is the beauty of online programming. Because it is self-paced, it really depends on your availability.


Does my access to the digital course materials expire?

Your access never expires, and you can continue to utilize all the course materials for as long as you like. And, as we make updates to our program, you will have access to the updated version.
