Mantra, Sound Yoga, Sanskrit, Sound Healing

I volunteer within the charity; Buddy Up Australia. Buddy Up organises events for serving and ex-serving military personnel, emergency services and their families to build their community and support networks. A group of us were fortunate enough to participate in a Sound Yoga and Mantra class facilitated by Siddhi Shakti.

For some members of the group, this was definitely out of their realm of experience and even a little out of their comfort zone. Siddhi Shakti made us all feel very comfortable and explained the science of making different sounds and how it helps our nervous system regulate.

Everyone loved the class and really got into it! Most of the group reported feeling lighter, more relaxed and could breathe so much deeper and easier than before the class. Some saw colours swirling behind their eyes as they felt the vibrations of the sound. Everyone felt they had learnt helpful skills and a few participants later told me they slept better that night than they had in a long time.

Thank you Siddhi Shakti for a revitalising and uplifting class. Your passion for sharing your knowledge and expertise with sound as a pathway for peace and wellbeing is very appreciated.

I was so so grateful to have experienced a sound & energy healing with Siddhi Shakti – wow. I could palpably feel the energy moving through different parts of my body and light energy pouring in – the sound & mantras she was using to clear through a lot of blockages I needed support with. I felt safe & so held the whole time so that I could just drop in & receive the transmissions. Thank you for such a supportive healing whilst I’ve been in a huge transformational point in life. Truly incredible!

Siddhi Shakti is a wonderful Kīrtanist, sound facilitator and teacher in her field. We loved having her at our festival. Her devotion, knowledge, skills, kindness and presence is the medicine the world needs. These days those souls are rare and being in their presence awakens our own inner sacred sanctuary.

I recently spent a few days at Elysia Wellness Retreat and booked a session with Siddhi Shakti in a sound healing session. It was amazing in helping me realign my energy and ground me. Thank you Siddhi for the care and consideration in which you managed this session.

“What a fantastic new experience this was, thank you Siddhi Shakti for facilitating!”

I highly recommend both of Siddhi Shakti’s classes, on toning, and Sanskrit sounds. She is an awesome, kind and patient teacher, who takes you on a deep experience of the Sanskrit sounds which vibrate and resonate within your body, allowing you to become one with all. The Toning exercise really helped my chakra system align and set me up for a much deeper experience of my mantra practice, or to just go into stillness.

The way Siddhi Shakti teaches the Sanskrit alphabet and tongue placings really deepens one’s understanding of how sound brings forth creation. I really appreciate the difference that chanting creates in your body, when using the proper Sanskrit sounds, using the various tongue placings.

Thank you so much Siddhi Shakti for your wonderful experiential teachings and depth it has brought to my chanting practices.

Siddhi Shakti is bringing through some profound teachings about the science of sound. She helps you – in a very experiential way – to feel the resonance of sacred sounds within your body…and by extension, to all of Nature and the Cosmos! She is a wonderful teacher and really embodies what she is teaching. Highly recommended!

I’ve noticed a lovely shift since you taught me how to pronounce Kṛṣṇa properly. I’m deeply grateful. Hare Kṛṣṇa!

Why would anyone take drugs, when you can do this!

I walked in feeling I had a cloud hanging over me and walked out feeling lighter, brighter, hopeful and smiling!

Siddhi Shakti’s (Diane’s) passion for what she is sharing is infectious. Her practical and articulate approach makes learning easy and enjoyable.

The simple act of slightly altering your pronunciation of words and mantras gives an extra depth and dimension to chanting that has a remarkable effect on your mind, body and consciousness that you didn’t know you could access so easily.  It is beautifully addictive as who doesn’t want more peace, joy and bliss in their life?

I look forward to learning and experiencing more.

My first experience of Yoga of Sound with Siddhi Shakti was quite amazing and profound. As we moved through the sounds I felt a deep awakening within my heart and within my whole being, a sense of excitement and joy as each cell of my body seemed to be vibrating in resonance. This brought me into a state of bliss and deep connection to the Divine residing within and I felt a sense of lightness and happiness which stayed with me for several days, it felt like something had shifted in my being.  I continue to learn and practice what I have learnt, sometimes as its own practice powerful within itself, and sometimes incorporating the sound into my other spiritual practices which enhances and expands my spiritual experience. Siddhi Shakti teach with openness, patience, good humour and love sharing her understanding and wisdom generously with students. I couldn’t recommend her classes more highly.

I have known Siddhi Shakti for a number of years and have really loved to hear her chanting and experience the energy and confidence when she chants. When she did her training in mantra I was really keen to learn from her and really loved our 1st session. Her insight into sound and healing is profound. I have adjusted my practice as she suggested and it has really helped me in so many ways but one which has been truly unexpected is that I can do my yoga practice with greater strength and capacity. I love it and am so looking forward to what will unfold in future sessions. Thank you so much Siddhi Shakti, you are amazing!

It was amazing. I found an internal change that last time I was in your chant class. I was dealing with family health issues and by the end of your class I felt filled with love and joy and peace in a profound way. Thank you…recommend this to all. Amazing.

Thanks heaps. It was totally awesome.

I had the pleasure of participating in a yoga of sound workshop with Siddhi Shakti. This was my first experience of exploring sound work and it was so interesting. I never knew the different ways of forming sounds when chanting and Siddhi Shakti explained it so simply and in such an engaging manner. I felt very comfortable. Also her beautiful voice was an inspiration to follow. I highly recommend these workshops and will be definitely doing more of them in the future.

Practice on retreat was amazing!!

Workplace Wellness, Energy Healing

Siddhi Shakti (Diane) ran an exceptional workshop on spiritual development for a corporate audience for It was exceptional with many describing a profound impact. Thank you.

I’m writing to thank the team for our wonderful stay at Elysia. We both enjoyed the great variety of activities and presentations, with special mention to Siddhi Shakti’s other-worldly sound healing.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for restoring my faith and awaking my awareness of energy healing. I thought I led a fairly active and healthy lifestyle but after recently being diagnosed with breast cancer it left me wondering what had upset the balance. It was only after I had spoken to you that I realised I had completely dismissed the practice of innate healing. After two healing sessions with you, I was overjoyed to feel so connected within.

Thank you for sharing simple techniques to get me on track. Even though I have practiced meditation most of my adult life, I think we could all do with a touch of ‘Soul Light’ to renew and refine our techniques.

Diane de Zylva is the perfect channel to release your fears and bring you home to your authentic center. She is a remarkable healer. Her inner stillness is a magnet for positive energy. Our healing session was completely transformational for me. I was able to relax and listen to her soothing voice. I felt extreme comfort and safety – almost floating but safely grounded. The session was pure and simple and I was very refreshed afterwards. The astounding thing is that very evening with extreme gentleness, I shared very important decisions with my mate. They flowed out of me with love, ease, directness, and I felt deeply connected to my own truth. I know the healing session with Diane released a lot of fear and I felt unblocked.

Each week seems to surpass the last. My sessions with Diane have exceeded all expectations. During the sessions I am very aware of the power and energy around me. I feel lighter. I’ve released burdens that were holding me back and I realise how much has shifted. Through Diane’s help, I have become somebody who I’m very happy to be.

Skilled, considerate, concise healer.

As someone new to spiritual healing, I wasn’t sure what outcomes to expect from the sessions or at what level. I can honestly say that after our session, I felt incredibly calm and in the weeks that followed felt I had much more positive outlook both at home and at work, with things that would usually make me unsettled not affecting me as they usually would. Diane has a very reassuring presence and I felt completely relaxed throughout the whole sitting. Highly recommended.

My life has totally changed in 5 months.

Crystal clear awareness, deep connection, a powerful healer.

Powerhouse, gets to the core issues.

Confidence that encourages others, grounded with a generous heart.
