Yoga of Sound
Yoga and the chanting of mantras are inseparably intertwined, from the widely known ‘Om’ to many other beautiful mantras. Just as the practice of asana, the chanting of mantras has proven positive physical, emotional and mental effects: it calms and strengthens our breathing, the vibrations reach our deepest tissues and nerves and stimulate our blood circulation and organs. Thus it calms our nervous system, improves our mood, regulates stress responses and positively changes the brain. Doing this together simply makes us feel connected, liberated ánd happy! The good news is you don’t need anything at all for it nor do you have to be flexible or sporty!
You don’t need any experience nor do you have to be a ‘singer’! Lies accompanies you with the warm sound of the Indian harmonium. You will get some explanation about the specific mantras and there is room for questions.
What to expect:
- Most of all: chanting, feeling, listening to sound & mantra
- Explanation about the meaning of the different mantras
- A hand-out with the mantras
For everyone who is curious about what sound can mean as a complement to your regular yoga practice and for everyone who likes to sing (even if you think it’s a little intimidating).
Teacher: Lies Mahy
After 10 years of a professional dance career, Lies decided to take her first yoga teacher training in Greece in2014. Little she knew this was the start of a journey that brought her where she is now, a full time yoga teacher. Currently she finds great inspiration in the unique style of the school of Tara Judelle and ScottLyons, Embodied FlowTM. She also took a year training mantra singer with Marc Citroen.
For Lies yoga is not a physical practice in the first place. For her, yoga is about embodying certain ideas and aspects of life and about untangling the threads of you, the world and life itself.
