This is an hour and a half asana practice that incorporates your voice, breathing techniques, and slow deliberate guidance to help bring your attention to your body with ease and attentive compassion while finding a deeper connection to your root support. A grounding, empowering class for anyone with some yoga experience looking to explore their subtle energy and physical body connection.

This class integrates yoga postures with the use of bija mantra and long tones to move subtle energy significantly and deepen your awareness of the relationship between your physical body and experience of emotional and spiritual energy.

Elements of the Class:

  • meditative movement at the beginning (joint warm-ups, core connection, pelvic movements) orients you to your relationship with the support beneath you and within you

  • steady standing postures and balancing poses integrated with kapalabhati breath and sounding to release fear and strengthen your physical (legs, feet) and energetic roots

  • focus on embodying the qualities of earth element and balancing the energy of the first chakra (root chakra)

Bija mantra are seed sounds that help build energy in the body and heighten awareness of emotional energy moving through the body. Singing them as part of your yoga practice cultivates a nuanced intelligence of your physically and emotional self and fortifies you physically, mentally, and emotionally. Using them in conjunction with breathing techniques supports going deeper in the pose. The bija mantra are: lam, vam, ram, yam, ham, om.

Long tones are open, extended sounds like ahhhh or ohhhh that help release stuck tension around the diaphragm thereby facilitating more freedom of breath and vocal expression. On an emotional level, singing these sounds is a simple, effective, and powerful way to move energy from one part of our energy field to another or to release it from our field.
