Mantra Chanting & BreathWork Intensive with Nikhil

In the yogic tradition Bhakti or surrendering control to divine consciousness is considered to be the easiest of the 4 paths of yoga. For most of us, especially beginners, it’s difficult to meditate (as we have many thoughts); however singing mantras (like om namah shivaya, kali mantras ) and using ” positive emotions” as a tool to bridge the gap, we can quiet the mind more easily and feel the unconditional “inner self love”. This intensive also includes special breathwork meditation exercises to drop chronic thinking easily. Deep belly breathing relieves stress by increasing the intake of oxygen into the body, helps to quiet the mind easily and makes the blood more alkaline (The Anti Stress Recipe). We end the session with proven guided self-hypnosis technique of “yoga nidra” or yogic sleep to feel a trance like state of deep relaxation.

This intensive requires advance registration (at least 1 day in advance) and it is suitable for beginner to intermediate level students.
