Vedic Chanting with Virginia Wise

Explore simple mantras and longer chants from the Vedas of ancient India.  Students will be encouraged and supported to develop Vedic chant as part of their personal practice.  The classes will be personalized to meet the specific needs and desires of those attending (input will be requested from those who register).  New and experienced chanters are welcome!

Virginia Wise has studied Vedic chant with Sonia Nelson, longtime student of TKV Desikachar, for more than 10 years and yoga with her and other teachers for more than 30 years.  Vedic chant has been an important addition to her personal practice, a source of strength and stability through challenging times. She wants to offer others the opportunity to discover its gifts for themselves.

“To share Vedic chant is to share the experience of silence through listening, a process of healing and a link with nature, the deeper self and the divine.” -TKV Desikachar

Yoga Sutra (Philosophy of Yoga) with Chris Dormaier

Ever wonder how Yoga has stood the test of time and is so popular today?  It is because the Yoga Sutras, Yoga’s foundational text, contains all teachings of Yoga. These ancient strategies and tools, designed to help with life’s challenges, are as relevant today as they were 2000 years ago.

As we explore and discuss selected Sutras and their many layers of meaning, we will discover practical answers to the questions: What is the mind? Why do we suffer? And, what steps can we take to reduce this suffering?

In this enlightening workshop you will:

  • Chant the Sutras in Sanskrit
  • Discuss their meanings and applications to your everyday life
  • Learn to incorporate the Sutras into your Yoga practice

Where did yoga come from? What is the philosophy behind the practice of yoga? What are the eight limbs of yoga? Find the answers to these and many more questions through presentation and discussion of the principles that guide our yoga practice.

This class is appropriate for both new and experienced students. All workshops with Chris Dormaier are eligible for CEUs. Class is held at SoundYoga.
