Chanting Om pronounced AUM is the sound that represents Universal energy, peace, or love. It is traditionally chanted at the beginning and end of a Yoga Practice. When we chant the vibrations have a physical effect on the nervous system, decreasing blood pressure and improving heart health. Experiment with chanting and notice how you feel after this practice, is there more energy or aliveness in your body? Or can you notice a sense of ease as you learn to lengthen and extend your out-breath? Chanting can also calm the mind, similar to meditation. As we chant we can feel the vibrations of nature inside of ourselves. Thank you for your ongoing practice.
