THE JOY OF CHANTING

Yoga teacher Emma Després details her own experiences of chanting and says that the powerful benefits are available for everyone

“Ommmmmm” hummed my brother with index finger and thumb held together in a mudra, eyes closed, back straight, standing in the kitchen at my parents’ house where I was living, before bursting into a fit of laughter, the rest of my family laughing with him. You see, back in those early days of yoga, I was the source of much hilarity what with the chanting they could hear from my room when I was practicing. My brother had actually started practicing yoga at the same time as me, but chanting was a stage too far for him and they all thought I was a bit crazy. In fact, this yoga thing was a bit of a shock for my family. I became hooked immediately and the transformative nature of my daily practice affected me rather quickly so that my life changed considerably in the course of two years.

About OM Yoga Magazine

Welcome to the May issue of OM Yoga & Lifestyle magazine. This month, we’ve got a big report looking at all things mindfulness. It’s timely and it’s never been more popular, the mindfulness movement is sweeping the land. And for good reason too: many believe that it offers an antidote to the stress of modern day living and today’s culture of being permanently switched on. For yoga fans, the benefits of mindfulness are nothing new, of course. It’s an intrinsic part of the practice, tuning in to the body, softening and quieting the mind to experience the moment and find the flow. Beauty is all around us if we only take a moment to stop and appreciate it. Start right now. Take a deep breath and pause before you dive into OM. Have a magical month, folks, and I hope to see you on the mat real soon.
