Intro to Sacred Chanting Workshop – Sat, 24th January

A relaxing and rejuvenating 
SACRED CHANTING INTRO WORKSHOP, with Saraswati Nagpal to a simple yet powerful art of using sound and vibrations to heal the body and calm the mind.

Chanting is the simple but powerful art of using sound to create positive vibrations that heal the body and calm the mind.

Quantum physics breaks down all of matter to the level of vibration – waves of energy. Chanting uses sound waves to gently bring the mind to a state of meditative awareness, free from the worries of the past or the stress of the future. It is deeply relaxing and rejuvenating.

A 30-minute beginning of very gentle, restorative yoga (Hatha), to open the body and deepen the breath.

Introduction to simple but powerful Sanskrit chants, their authentic pronunciation, meaning and intonation. You will learn to use your voice to move awareness through the body.

A guided deep relaxation ending, using sound to release stress from the body, and rest in stillness.

 Saraswati Nagpal
Saraswati has been chanting since early childhood and has sung for audiences in India and around the world, as well as recorded albums of chants and songs with her brother, Sai. An author, educator, Indian Classical dancer and yoga teacher with over a decade of teaching experience in various fields, she has recently moved to Cape Town from India.

Her voice is often described as pure, soothing and uplifting – and having led meditative chanting sessions in two classes already we can fully attest to that!
