Awakening Mind, Body & Spirit though Mantra
"The fundamental feature of all mantras is sound vibration. These vibrations act to awaken awareness, devotion, insight and wisdom, to heal ailments and help us fulfil our aims. Thus they are of value in every sphere of our lives”. Swami Nishchalananda
This two hour class will awaken and enliven every cell, nadi and neurone through the use of sound. Mantra chanting can be used for simple or more complex aims. At it’s basic level, it helps to stop the chatter of the mind. On a deeper level, we are tuning into the underlying cosmic vibration of the Universe. Chanting can energise the body, purify the nadis, prepare the mind for meditation, and even heal and protect us.
In our session we will work through a varied programme to introduce some simple chanting into our Yoga practice:-
· Simple mantras and seed sounds with Asana
· Mahat Yoga Pranayama with mantras
· Japa (repetition of Mantra)
· Learn three mantras
· Ajapa Japa Meditation
· Short Yoga Nidra
Please wear comfortable yoga clothing and use your usual yoga equipment (mats, blocks, belts, cushions, blankets). If you have a Mala, please have it with you. It’s not essential, but nice to use if you have one. All the Mantras will be put up on the screen, plus a handout will be emailed to you prior to the event.
