The Healing Sounds
of Ancient Sanskrit
Chanting awakens our vitality while bringing depth to our yoga practice. It is both a meditative breathing practice as well as a solid foundation for the study of yoga philosophy. Unlike āsana practice which eventually fades into old age, chanting, prāṇāyāma, meditation & philosophy improve as we age.
When we chant, we exercise our breath and strengthen our core. If we are inclined, we can add other dimensions as well. We can incorporate a sentiment, an emotion, a devotional heart feeling. We can focus on the expansion of our awareness and cultivate visualizations. If we are more physically inclined, then we can use chanting as a very potent prāṇāyāma practice for strengthening our lungs, diaphramgn and over all stamina. There is a wide range of ways to relate to chanting that become clear from personal experience.
