Mantra Chanting

Sweden-2016-Green-World-Yoga-and-Sacred-Music-Festival Mantras are powerful sounds, based on ancient wisdom, influencing the physical body, clearing the emotional body and leading one closer to the heart. Reciting mantras allows you to feel a positive energy, the body relaxes and you can enter into a higher state of presence. Each sound of a mantra originates from a different part of the human body. When you pronounce those sounds, you activate energy points in your body. As the mind concentrates more and more on the mantra and its meaning, the thinking process stops and you can rise to a higher state of consciousness.

This course is for the one who:

  • Loves to learn and sing classical Mantras and Kirtans
  • Who wants to bring their yoga to the next level
  • Seeks meaning in life and explore a higher state of consciousness

During the Summer School you learn and experience:

  • The meaning and benefits of mantras
  • Various techniques of mantra chanting
  • Pranayamas (breathing techniques) through mantras and kirtans
This Mantra Chanting course is conducted by:
