In the practice of Asana and Pranayama, our attention is gently brought towards bodily
sensations and breath.
the focus of our attention is on listening and reproducing sacred words which are regarded as universal
seeds of wisdom which can illuminate the path of all true seekers.
In classes, our
first intention is to
impart correct pronunciation and intonation of these sounds called
"Mantras". It is said that only when these sounds are properly repeated
in the exact form they were received in, will they serve to purify
our system at a deep level. This is
done collectively through call and response
in a supportive group setting. Your own voice is supported by the voice
of the group. The meaning of the mantras is presented in a
universal way. Along with the art of Chanting, you also
learn how to use mantras as a support for meditation. This may help you
start identifying or refining your personal intention for
practice of Mantra yoga does not require prior knowledge of
sanskrit. Vedic chanting only uses three notes. It is a joyful practice
which brings us closer to spirit. The best way to understand what Vedic
Chanting is like is to experience it. If you think the class might be
of interest to you, please contact Martine at
firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange to observe a class for free.
You can just listen to the chants and we understand that this free
trial is not a commitment on your part.
