Vedic Chanting & Japa Meditation Course
Starts Sunday, June 9th
Meets Sunday’s 8:30-9:30AM for 4 consecutive weeks.
Passed down over centuries, Vedic chanting is the oldest, unbroken oral tradition in existence. The Rishis transmitted the knowledge of the Vedas onto their disciples who in turn passed this knowledge to their students. This is what forms the unbroken chain of student-teacher-tradition called parampara. This course follows the principals of parampara and constitutes the foundation of correct learning of this ancient knowledge.
The study and chanting of the Vedas is called adhyayanam, which literally means to come closer to your inner self. Vedic chanting provides a tool for self-observation and a way to advance, enhance, and inspire your spiritual path.
Adhyayanam is considered a form of meditation and pranayama, the practice effortlessly guides our mind to a place of deep inner quietude and tranquility while ultimately transforming habitual and unconscious thought patterns into all-prevading and powerful sound vibrations contributing to a sense of well being and emotional balance.
Todd Roderick, student of the late Sri K. Pattahbi Jois and Sri Swamini Mayatitananda is one of few students in the southeast to be certified to pass on this knowledge and practice. Ashtanga Yoga Atlanta welcomes all students of every level and yoga discipline to participate in this course. Please note that there are limited spots for this course.
