Quiet your mind and engage deeper with your breath as your voice joins with others in our community chanting practice. Mantra means "mind protector", and each month we will give rise to our voices in unison with a new sacred mantra from yogic philosophy. Chanting is said to "shake your bones", as the vibration of your voice during chant is different from that of singing. You never know what you can shake loose. Class will start with some gentle movement and pranayama (breath work) to open up the voice, and instruction will be provided on pronunciation and meaning of each mantra. The mantra will repeat for roughly 20-30 minutes, during which time you are welcome to chant, listen, and weave your voice in and out of the group. No prior experience necessary, and no special clothes needed. Come as you are.
