Michelle Byrne is a multi-instrumental musician, chantress and performer. Yoga, meditation and music have woven their way through Michelle’s life since childhood and she loves to take people to divine, deeply relaxed states through facilitating soundbaths and workshops.

Michelle’s Transfomational Voicework allows participants to reach an elevated state through chanting mantras, toning and group vocal practises, and can assist to cut through blocks to expression.

Therapeutic Soundbaths create a deeply nurturing experience where one can completely let go and find peace within. Instruments used include Himalayan and Crystal Singing Bowls, Gongs, Cosmic Tones, Chimes and Voice; invoking a sense of being held in serene bliss.

Shanti Sound was born in 2011 soon after Michelle and her husband James honeymooned in Northern New South Wales, attending Ecstatic Chant Retreat with Deva Premal & Miten. Jamming with Deva, Miten and Manose ignited a flame which is still burning brightly. After returning home to Adelaide, Michelle embarked on the journey she named Shanti Sound, sharing mantra and sacred sound on a regular basis.
