Sheela Bringi

Lead Teacher

Sheela Bringi comes from a family of Indian vocalists, Sanskrit scholars, spiritual practitioners, and teachers of Yogic philosophies. For the past three decades, she has dedicated herself to the study of Indian classical and devotional music. In her teaching, Sheela seamlessly blends evidence-based Western vocal exercises with integrative Alexander Technique and traditional Indian classical vocal training.

Her unique musical journey has been shaped by her studies with Indian bansuri legend GS Sachdev, imprinting her music with a spiritual depth rooted in Indian classical rāgas and their healing power. She continues her study of Indian Classical music with vocal maestro Subhashish Mukhopadhay. Her broad-ranging musical learning, including extensive training in Western musical traditions, enables her to move fluidly between and amidst worlds.

Her two solo mantra music albums, ‘Shakti Sutra’ and ‘Incantations,’ have received critical acclaim from media outlets like NBC News, NPR, and Public Radio International, highlighting her versatility and cultural impact. As an educator, Sheela Bringi is committed to sharing the transformative power of sacred sound and music. She serves as adjunct faculty in Indian Devotional Singing at Naropa University in Boulder and is a co-founder and a lead teacher in the Sacred Sound Lab, an online school educating a global community of students in sacred Indian music.

Hear from Our Community

I am used to "normal" vocal exercises, which are sometimes a bit boring but Sheela offers a completely different approach: in the same time you warm up, you also relax your mind and body and you can feel that it's a complete practice. Thank you so much dear Sheela for sharing with us your knowledge." - Emilie Mangoni, Yoga Teacher and Singer
"Sheela absolutely loves offering song to Divine Mother and shares that joy with her students. The classes are more spiritual offerings and meditations than classes. You come away full of Bhakti and bliss! " - Sacred Sound Lab Student
"Singing with Sheela invites you into the spaciousness of your inner knowing, where sensation and sonic explorations roll out like a welcome breeze. When you lean into the exhalation combined with your self made vibrations, you realize the person coming to save me is my healed self. - Cole Butler, Architect of Spaciousness


Even on Zoom, singing and playing live with Sheela is a joy. Her teaching method is impeccable, and has taught me things I did not think I could learn, her generosity is immense and the heartful group energy of practicing with her is a gift for all." - Coralie, Spain, practitioner of voice, sound, rhythm and percussion as an individual and collective healing modality.
