Awakening Mind, Body & Spirit though Mantra
Sunday 1st November 2020 – 7pm
“The fundamental feature of all mantras is sound vibration. These vibrations act to awaken awareness, devotion, insight and wisdom, to heal ailments and help us fulfil our aims. Thus they are of value in every sphere of our lives”. Swami Nishchalananda
This two hour class will awaken and enliven every cell, nadi and neurone through the use of sound. Mantra chanting can be used for simple or more complex aims. At it’s basic level, it helps to stop the chatter of the mind. On a deeper level, we are tuning into the underlying cosmic vibration of the Universe. Chanting can energise the body, purify the nadis, prepare the mind for meditation, and even heal and protect us.
The sessions will aim to introduce a variety of different styles of chanting, and integrate them into all the elements of our Yoga practice. Each session will have a selection of the following:-
- Simple mantras and seed sounds with Asana
- Mahat Yoga Pranayama with mantras
- Japa Meditation (repetition of Mantra)
- Vedic Chanting
- Bhakti Chanting
- Devi Mantras
- Chakra Chanting
- Mantras from other Traditions
- Short Yoga Nidra
The sessions will be held online via Zoom. While this isn’t the best way to experience sound and chanting, it does give the opportunity to engage and enjoy the benefits of Mantra. And if you have ever been reluctant to do any chanting in public, this is your time to experience it in the privacy of your own home!
These sessions are open to all:-
- Qualified Yoga Tutors
- Student Yoga Teachers
- Experienced Yoga Practitioners who want to deepen their practice
- Anyone interested in Chanting and Sound

FEEDBACK FROM PREVIOUS ATTENDEES
“I attended the online mantra workshop with Julie Hemmings. I really loved it and got alot out of it which has stayed with me. It was a beautiful and enriching revelation. It has been a source of space and grace in these interesting times”.
“I had assumed that the time elapse and echo would ruin any chanting but with all microphones off it worked so well. The atmosphere was amazing, particularly the mantra using malas. Please thank Julie for a very special session – which I hope will be repeated!”
