Return to the roots of Yoga! Traditional Yoga is full mind-body practice created to prepare the whole self for meditation. To create ablissful state of meditation, a Yoga practice was a beautiful combination of asana (yoga postures), mudra (hand gestures), pranayama (breath control), and mantra (chanting).
For many of us, the practice of chanting has been lost in our western Yoga practice. Slowly but surely, chanting is becoming more and more mainstream as it accelerates one’s ability to quiet the mind and enjoy meditation.
If you are interested in adding another layer of depth to your current Yoga practice and experiencing more bliss during your meditation practice, than this is the workshop for you!
In this workshop, we will be using infusing Mantra into our Yoga & Meditation practice to explore the opening and balancing of our energetic body or chakra system. This workshop will include an overview of the chakra system, followed by a mantra infused yoga practice infused with the Bija Mantras (seed sound to the chakra’s). Level 2: Participants should be familiar with how to safely practice the rudimental Yoga postures (such as cobra, bridge, and the warriors) to participate in this workshop. The practice itself will not be overly strenuous, but limited anatomical/physical cues will be given to open the practice up to mantra/chanting.
