Vedic Chanting

Sound is a powerful tool that yoga practitioners have at their disposal. Vedic chanting is, as the name suggests, chanting the Veda-s. These ancient spiritual teachings are the basis of the six classical Indian philosophies – yoga being one of them. The Vedic texts are presented in the Sanskrit language and contain the most ancient teachings on yoga, which are still relevant to the challenges we face in the 21st century.

The Vedic teachings were traditionally transmitted orally

The teacher chants while students listen closely and then repeat the chant in exactly the same way; and this form of teaching still continues today in India. It is called adhyayanam: the word is composed of adhi (inner-most self) and ayanam (to go towards), so it represents a journey to our inner-most self.
