Mantra Chanting and Meditation
The word “mantra” can be understood by examining the Sanskrit roots “MAN” = mind, and “TRA” = liberation. Mantras are powerful sounds and words that are chanted repeatedly to awaken powerful energies within and progress into a state of meditation.
Shatkarma (“SHAT” = six, “KARMA” = action) is an ancient purification of the body yogic practices. There are 6 types of shatkarmas each which balance our masculine (ida) and feminine (pingla) energies, and rid our body of stagnant waste accumulated over decades of unhealthy living. In our yoga teacher training you will get an introduction to 3 of these ancient practices.
At Vinyasa Yoga School will learn the primary Hatha asanas (postures), the art of alignment, how to construct a class, as well as have several opportunities to teach.
