Chanting mantras can help us bypass the mundane matters and mental chatter of daily life. I am offering a new weekly class called "Mantra and Movement" that combines the yoga of sound (nāda yoga) with the yoga of movement (asana) to support your physical health and spiritual development. You can choose to sing or listen to the sacred sounds, join in the movement or just sit. No prior musical or yoga experience is required for this class, and people from all belief systems are welcome.

Mantra meditation is a technique that can lead to deep meditation states. Mantras can be spoken, sung, whispered, repeated inwardly or just experienced. This meditation explores the simple mantra, So Hum, a Sanskrit phrase usually translated as "I am That."
