While Āsana, Prāṇāyāma and Dhyānam are the well-known tools of Yoga, Śrī T Krishnamacharya and Śrī TKV Desikachar also beautifully integrated Mantra-s and other chants into the practice of Yoga. While Vedic Mantra-s are innately powerful, the selection of chants used can also be done keeping in mind the specific preferences of the practitioner. The use of Mantra in Yoga serves as a very effective means, not only of lengthening the breath but also enhancing attention. Further, Mantra integrated Yoga practices can also contribute to inner strength and resilience.
Śrī S Sridharan, Senior Mentor and Teacher, Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram, will be a presenting a series of four lectures on the integration of Mantra-s within the practice of Yoga as part of the ongoing webinars organised by the Ministry of AYUSH.
