" Chanting can open our hearts " - TKV Desikachar
The practice of Yoga, often begins at a place where one is able to experience something at a very gross level, primarily the physical aspect that we see as Yoga. This remains so, because we are unable to notice subtler aspects like the breath and how we feel with regard to the breath during a practice. One tends to most often see the flexibility or the strength as we practice, rather than the experience that one gains through a connection between body, breath and mind.
Mysteriously, the use of sound through chanting establishes a special link that can affect our state of consciousness. It is a tool for focusing the mind and for refining our listening to our own breathing.
In T. Krishnamacharya’s method of teaching yoga, chants were adapted to become an integral part of the practice of yoga. Asanas (postures) and pranayama practice by incorporating chants as a means to achieve Sthira (steady), Sukham (comfortable) and to reduce excessive effort. It can also add challenge since it is difficult for the mind to access the breath and, often, in asana practice, the first thing to go is the breath. Since chant relates to how we’re breathing, it further becomes a form of pranayama.
The mind becomes calmer and steadier. Chanting enables the mind to remain focused and reduces the scope for distraction. Chanting during movement reduces irregularities in breath and loss of concentration due to discomfort or agitation of mind.
Efficacy of chanting and mental chanting (silent) during asana and pranayama:
● Guides the movement.
● To sustain the breath capacity.
● Increases one’s ability to concentrate.
● Increase metabolic rate.
● Boost ‘Agni’ or digestive fire.
Open to all. Whatever your level, you're welcome.
