What is a mantra?
A mantra is a sacred sound, or group of words in Sanskrit that have psychological/spiritual meaning and powers behind them. Today we will be looking at The teacher student mantra. This mantra allows a teacher and student to commence the teachings of yoga with peace, patience, understanding.
Ill be making a video on how to pronounce the mantra properly, but for now ill put it on paper, with english translation.
Its best to open class with this player to set the tone for the class.
If you are new to the world of yoga,spirituality, or energy, and looking to understand the basics be sure to check out my new Ebook Chakra Talk: Introduction to subtle energies.
