Dear Students and  friends,

Today we will do our first sitting in chant exercise as part of your daily practice when time allows you should try to incorporate meditation into your exercise ritual.

First sit in a comfortable cross legged position (easy pose)

You can either take one deep breath and begin to exhale chanting the entire mantra in one breath or take a half-breath and begin half of the chant using to full breaths during a one sentence chant.

I am going to break down the chant wording to explain it as we start.

 “ONG  “is similar to OM which is to create energy

“NMAO” pronounced  “NAH MOH”  is similar to Namaste or I bow to you

“GURU” is your inner teacher sometimes also referred to as your instructor

“DEV” pronounced ” Dave”  means transparent so when you chant you are calling to the divine teacher within

and end with NAMO

I want you to pull your navel in as you chant out loud “ONG” and feel the vibration behind the nose practice:

“ONG”, “ONG”, “ONG”

The first syllable of “GURU” is short and the second is long practice out load like this “GUUUUUU” “RU” roll the “r” at the roof of your mouth to activate reflex points that connect the hypothalamus, pineal and pituitary glands to neutralize your mind.

Chant the full mantra 3 times out loud

:ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO

ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO

ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO

Now sing it with your heart and soul, sing it over and over and over and over, let it embrace you bring your intention to your practice and dedicate yourself to your yoga.

I bow to the infinite creative energy , I bow to you my inner teacher.

Namaste,

Kat
