Chanting Om to Extend the Out Breath & Calm the Nervous System
Return to Center - Accessible Yoga & Mindfulness with Lisa Pollard
Chanting Om, pronounced AUM is the sound that represents the Universal energy, peace or love. It is traditionally chanted at the beginning and end of a Yoga Practice. When we chant the vibrations have a physical affect on the nervous system, decreasing blood pressure and improving heart health. Experiment with chanting and notice how you feel after this practice, is there more energy or aliveness in your body? Or can you notice a sense of ease as you learn to lengthen and extend your out breath. Chanting can also calm the mind, similar to meditation. As we chant we can feel the vibrations of nature inside of ourselves. Thank-you for your ongoing practice.
