Understand the difference between mantra, chanting and kirtan.
Chanting mantras aloud with focus brings about a change in our mental state - it helps to lessen our internal chatter, thereby quietening the mind. Once the mind is more settled, mantra can be practised silently to further refine mental focus.
Classes include a selection of mantras and may also include Sanskrit recitation such as the Yogasūtras of Patañjali. A short movement practice may be included to bring movement and sound together.
