As a Vedic Chant teacher I am transmitting sounds that reach back to ancient time. These chants have been transferred from teacher to student.
The use of sound as a tool of yoga allows students to enjoy the benefits of yoga in a new way. Chanting can enrich a practice at both physical and mental levels. For some it is a form of deep meditation. It can be integrated into a practice through asana, or posture work, pranayama or breath work.
Alternatively it can be a discrete practice. The way it is applied will depend on the individual student's practice and their particular inclinations.
Chanting is especially useful as a tool for yoga therapy, where chants may be used when there is severe physical restriction or movement is limited. In some instances the most powerful form of chanting is mental or 'silent chant'.
