The use of mantra has a purifying effect on the mind, and combined with asana, becomes a very potent practice. In this class we use the breathing mantra, So Hum, and the Tibetan mantra of compassion, Om Mani Padme Hum, as a vehicle for quieting the mind and accessing an authentic place of peace. Lots of seated meditation and slow-paced flow. Be warned, there are very few vinyasas! Prop Suggested: A blanket.
