Chanting mantras is the yoga of sound. Chanting has been used for centuries as an aid to humans who seek to communicate with the divine spirit in themselves and the universe. Chanting has the bearing of raising the benchmark of vibration of the individual practicing the chant, and it can help the practitioner to be filled with peace, and feel calm and centered.

There have been medical studies that have shown that performing yoga chants can have positive reimbursement for the body.

An activation chant can be used at the start of a yoga class, or the beginning of a meditation session. Using an activation chant is an effective way to help participants abase their stress and set the appropriate cherubic tone for the yoga class. Chanting can be practiced at any time of the day. You can chant coolly to yourself, chant out loud, or attend to recorded chants on CD or on a Mobile .mp3 player as you go about your day.

Closing chants are used to bear a meditation class or a yoga class to a blissful end. A chant can be the thread that ties the positive reimbursement of the work done on the yoga mat, or the meditation class to the rest of the practitioner’s life.

This is an example of a closing chant taken from the very old Sanskrit text, the Yoga Sutras:

Om Om Om

Thamaso Maa Jyothir Gamaya

Mruthyor Maa Amrutham Gamaya.

Om Shanthi. Shanthi. Shanthi.

Now stay in complete hush for a minute.

Lokaa Samastaa Shukino Bhavanthu.

Jai Shree Sat Guru Maharaj Ki!


The English translation is:

Om Om Om

Lead me from unreal to Real

Lead me from darkness to Light

Lead me from bereavement to Immortality.

Om Shanthi. Shanthi. Shanthi. (Peace, peace, amity be to all.)

(This may be followed by a close of silence.)

May the complete world be happy.

Jai Shree Sat Guru Maharaj Ki!


You can buy recorded Yoga chants online, and present are many web sites where you can download sample yoga chants to attend ago you buy.

Because of Yoga’s very old Sanskrit roots, chants are usually printed and performed in Sanskrit, but their definition is said to be universal, as Sanskrit is the language of the heart.

Chanting or listening to chants while performing yoga poses can help to bear a sense of calm to your mind and it can open your base which will enhance your delectation of your yoga poses.
