The Power of breath & Mantra

Join me for an immersion into the transforming power of mantra chanting and breath-work/ pranayama. Drawing on the wisdom of the yogic tradition this day will be infused with practices that invoke energy and culminate in stillness. Links will be made with yogic physiology & philosophy and practical tools shared for integration and grounding in daily life.

Two of the most powerful and direct methods to shift physical and mental states are through mantra chanting and breathing techniques or pranayama.
Mantra chanting will harness the voice, breath and energy and is a dynamic form of meditation. Through sound, resonance and vibration the practitioner is able to let go of the intellect and use the vibratory field created for inner purification & transformation.
Pranayama techniques when guided systematically, heal, relax & balance the nervous system and induce relaxed concentration in the mind. Build a safe and sustainable pranayama practice as a stand- alone tool or stepping stone to meditation.


Through progressive practices this day aims to ignite the innate intelligence of the body/mind to anchor into a deep sense of grounding and wholeness. How to extend practice awareness into daily life to enhance the quality of your health, well-being, contentment and Joy.

Deepen your practice, ground in mantra & pranayama & connect with others on the yogic journey.
