Chakra Workshop – Chanting the Chakras

Conducted by Swami Pragyamurti and Krishnadhyanam

Greetings from Satyananda Yoga Centre. These are challenging times to be alive.  If we listen to the news on TV or read the newspapers it would seem that we are surrounded by conflict, hatred, distrust etc. Statistically however, it has  been shown that there has never been a time when it is safer to be human. (For instance, the number of deaths per year from war is one twelfth what it was in the 1950’s. )

So, instead of being brainwashed by the news corporations and the media, begin to brainwash yourself. Learn something new, sing, dance, draw, run – hop skip or jump! Or come to a workshop at The Yoga Centre. These are also exciting times to be alive.

We welcome back Krishnadhyanam, who is with us for the next six weeks. He used to live at the Centre and now spends six months each year studying dhrupad singing in India (dhrupad is the oldest form of Indian classical singing which derived from vedic chant and temple chanting.)

He and Swami Pragyamurti will be giving a two day workshop (Saturday 23rd September and Saturday 14th October) on ‘Chanting the Chakras‘.  The days will include asana, pranayama, meditation and at least one yoga nidra session.  There will be a large nada yoga emphasis. We shall be learning and chanting not only the bija mantras for the chakras but also the mantras for the lotus petals also.

The two-week interval between the days provide an opportunity to practice on your own and ‘settle in’ to the practice. Preference will be given to those who can attend both days but if there is space it might be possible to sign up for just one.

Krishnadhyanam will also be teaching two Saturday morning nada yoga classes and two afternoon classes on ‘The Bhagavad Gita’ (Saturday 30th September and Saturday 7th October). We shall learn the story and all about the characters of this amazing yogic soap opera. There will be plenty of chanting.

And if you think you can’t sing, then here is an opportunity to realise that you can!
