OM Chanting with Jen Perena

Join us for a special OM Chanting event here at Unit 108 Yoga, on Sunday, May 5, at 12:30 pm! OM Chanting Organizer Jen Perena will be with us to lead a 45-min session to cultivate peace and harmony in ourselves and the surrounding environment.

WHAT IS IT? 
OM Chanting is a group practice that uses the transformational power of the mantra OM to activate the self-healing potential of everyone who participates. We sit in a specially arranged circle and chant OM out loud for 45 min. Due to a special blessing, OM Chanting generates a vibrational frequency that releases negativity, transforms it and showers us with positive energy.

EXTRAORDINARY BENEFITS: OM Chanting promotes inner peace, mental clarity, creativity, emotional freedom and physical health. It brings like-minded people together and supports our physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. It brings more balance and peace to our communities and to the world at large as well, so by participating at OM Chantings you contribute to a better you and a better world!

The vibrational waves created by the circle spread out in a large radius creating a harmonious, peaceful environment and a unity between humans and nature. The OM continues to resonate in everyone who has participated even after the circle, allowing us to share the good vibrations wherever we go.

POSITIVE SHIFTS: OM chanting helps us to experience positive shifts which allow us to enjoy more peace, joy and love in our lives.

OPEN TO EVERYONE: No previous experience is required. OM Chanting is not a faith-based practice, but all faiths are welcomed, as well as those who have no interest in spirituality. The only requirement is that you must be able to sit (either on the floor or in a chair) and repeatedly chant OM (at your own pace) for the entire circle time (45 minutes).

WHAT TO BRING: For the duration of the circle we sit either on a chair or on a bolster and blankets. All this is provided at the studio. It is recommended to dress in loose, comfortable clothes.

Join us for a meditation and yin yoga workshop. One of the quickest ways to enlightenment is to visualize yourself awakening, and in our world, most of the images we see of yogic and meditation practitioners are masculine. Women practitioners have seemingly fewer heroines to emulate. At the same time, many teachers will remind us that women are superior practitioners. Join us for a meditation and Yin Yoga workshop where we will delve deeply into the meaning of women’s history month, international women’s day, and a new moon. This workshop will include:

A visualization mediation.
A new moon intention-setting circle.
A yin yoga practice.

This workshop is donation based (suggested $15 but you can donate anything from $3 to $108) . If you donate $24 and more you can also take a free yoga or pilates class at the studio at any point in the future.
