Chanting and the vehicle of mantra (mantrayana) is much misunderstood as something religious. It has been called “the easy-difficult path”…..easy to perform, but difficult to understand. Re-learn what this invaluable yoga practice is really about as you come to understand the science of sound as it relates to the vase (container) of the physical body and the body’s living-web-of-tissue (fascia). You will come away with a working knowledge of why chants are in foreign languages, why they are important to the evolution of a yoga practice and how it benefits the physical body!
