Pranava: OM, Return to Source

November 10, 2018
4:30-7:00 pm
$30 early bird (by Nov. 7)
$35 after Nov. 7

If you’ve ever been to a yoga class, you’ve heard the word OM. Perhaps you’ve chanted along. Perhaps, you haven’t and you’ve simply wondered what it means and why it’s in a yoga class. Is it just a pretty symbol and a sweet sound to make? Or does this seemingly simple word hold more meaning and power than you can imagine? This workshop is intended to give you a deeper understanding and experience of OM, the most common Mantra.

Guided by meditation and yoga teacher/therapist Lauri Glenn you will learn about the history of, and philosophy behind “OM” that comes directly from the ancient text, Mandukya Upanishad. You will then take an experiential journey of OM through sound, breath, movement and meditation.

OM, also known as Pranava, is the primordial sound of creation. (Pranava translates as “infuser of life” or “life giver”). Called the Universal Sound Syllable, OM is not only our connection TO the Divine, it IS the Divine. Pranava has the power to connect us directly to Source, however you name Source for yourself.

Through discussion, movement, breath, sound, journaling and meditation, you will enjoy an unforgettable journey of OM that will forever change your relationship with this essential Mantra.

108 Sun Salutations

Held four times a year.
Contact us to learn more.
As we welcome a new season, we also remember and honor that which never changes, which is really the true purpose of this practice. We will flow through nine rounds of 12 sun salutations, with an intention/dedication before each round and a short break between the rounds. This is a physically challenging but extremely rewarding and mind calming practice. Modifications to the traditional series A sun salutation as well as less intense variations will be offered before we start, and you are welcome to use any variation or a mix of sun salutation styles. The goal is not to complete 108 sun salutations — the goal is the practice itself.
