A Sound Life is the first well-being charity in Australia to bring free live music, therapeutic yoga and meditation to people in need.
Their incredible musician and yoga teacher volunteers share their talents and hearts to patients in hospitals, people living with disabilities, women and youth in shelters, the aged and people facing mental health issues. They also have programs for disadvantaged children in Tanzania, Indonesia and India.
A Sound Life
Started in 2014 with one weekly session at Sydney Children’s hospital and they now service over 600 free sessions per year in 22 facilities across NSW, uplifting the spirits of over 5000 people. They are a rapidly growing grass-roots organisation and plan to go national by 2020.
In addition to their Sound Life Programs, they have many exciting initiatives underway including the launch of the Sanctuary in Sydney, a geodesic dome which will be the Sydney hub for their programs, training and events, and a space for community, creativity, inspirational events, corporate wellbeing and social impact. An epicentre for goodness! They also offer corporate wellness programs for organisations in the workplace, at conferences and special events.
A Sound Life are so excited about the partnership with Byron Spirit Festival and the opportunity it creates for ASL to expand their programs and grow our impact in the NSW Northern Rivers. They currently service free weekly yoga sessions for the elderly at Feros Aged Care in Bangalow and they have previously run a program at Mullum Cottage for youth at risk and will be launching new programs in the Byron area in coming months.
If you are a yoga teacher, meditation teacher, musician or simply want to get involved and share the love please email volunteer@asoundlife.org and A Sound Life will let you know about the upcoming information session in Byron Bay. ASL will also have a stand in the Spirit Village so come and say hi and help them create a sound life for all!!

Edo Kahn
The co-founder/CEO of A Sound Life, Australia’s first charity to transform the lives of people in need through free music, yoga and meditation programs.

Edo is an internationally acclaimed musician, yoga and meditation teacher, and social entrepreneur. Through all of his work, he is passionate about transforming lives, empowering individuals and uniting communities.

Excited to be back, Edo said the festival is special because of its “family-friendly vibes and positive energy.” Not to mention the amazing quality of the teachers and performers, and the wide variety of workshops and concerts.

Edo will be running workshops covering mantra and Bhakti yoga as well as a sound healing session. Edo always wanted to create music that was uplifting and spiritual. He found that connection in mantra music as one half of the much-loved duo Edo & Jo.

“Mantra is the cornerstone to everything I do,” said Edo. “Everything that we practice in yoga started in mantras.

“You can practice all the aspects of yoga just by chanting.”

His practice lead him to start A Sound Life with his partner Jo. Having seen the healing impact that yoga and music could have on underprivileged communities in India and Indonesia, they were inspired to do something positive themselves. Sadly, Jo passed away in 2015 but Edo has continued their legacy.
