Jared Hirsch: A Means Beyond Asana: The Power Of Sound And Chanting
The postures of yoga allow us to connect with certain aspects of our being. When we integrate postures with deep conscious breathing and intentionally selected words or phrases the postures take on new life. This workshop is thoughtfully designed to demystify any stigma associated to chanting, create a comfortable learning environment for going deeper in your practice and provide tools for continuing your journey. An introductory discussion will provide a strong foundation and context for understanding more about the application of chanting, allowing us to dive deeply into practice that explores methods of how chanting can be used as a powerful addition to any yoga practice. This workshop is appropriate for all levels, no prior experience needed, just an open mind.
