A Sound Life is a charity sharing the healing and creative power of music and yoga with those in need as a free service. We harness the skills of musicians, yoga teachers and kind-hearted people who are passionate about giving back to our community to uplift the spirits and enrich the lives of those in need.
“We believe that using our gifts to be of service is the fullest expression of our lives. It is our dream that teams of volunteers share the healing and creative power of music and yoga on a daily basis with those in healthcare, aged-care and underprivileged communities. “– Edo and Jo, Co-founders
Over the past six years we have spent time in India, Asia and Australia volunteering in a range of different humanitarian service (seva) projects. These projects include playing music and teaching yoga in underprivileged communities, schools, orphanages, hospitals, old age and disabilities facilities. In 2008 we started the Gift of Life touring initiative raising money for operations for children with congenital heart defects in India. Over the past year we have been project managing the renovation of the girls orphanage at Katpadi, India. Discovering along the way the joy of giving and sharing with those in need, we set up A SOUND LIFE to support and expand the projects we are passionate about. Through our programs, the purpose of A SOUND LIFE is to share the healing and creative power of music and yoga with those in health care, aged-care and underprivileged communities as a FREE SERVICE.
MUSICIANS AND YOGIS ON CALL

Supplying musical instruments and music teachers to schools and orphanages in underprivileged areas.
