Event description
An age old tradition and tool for peace of mind

About this Event

Chanting is one of the oldest and most important practices in India, and it continues today with great enthusiasm. Handed down from generation to generation through a process of careful listening and exact recitation, chanting is an important bearer of tradition and one of the best tools for developing peace of mind and concentration.

In this class we will

  • Define Vedic Chanting
  • Detail the many uses and discuss how to apply them
  • Discuss the role of chanting and how to utilize it powerfully
  • Teach you several short practices

Chanting is an incredibly powerful practice that strongly brings our whole system towards attention and balance. It also requires that we bring our focus to each other in a deep way and hence facilitates the connection between the student and teacher.

This live, group class will allow you to connect with yourself, other students and your teacher in a profound way.

All levels are welcome, you need not have experience with chanting to participate.

This class will happen on both Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 12pm.

You may come to just one class for $30 or join us both days for $50.

There is also an afternoon class Explorations of Dharma, learn more about that class and options for attending the entire weekend here.

Your Teacher

Chase Bossart, Director of the Yoga Well Institute will be your teacher for this weekend. Since 2003 teaching yoga has been Chase’s sole occupation. He has a Masters degree in Religious Studies with an emphasis on Indian Philosophy and studied Sanskrit in graduate school.

All of the training Chase has received in Yoga has been in the lineage of Śri T. Krishnamacharya as passed on to his son Mr. TKV Desikachar. In total, he spent more than 4 years in Chennai studying one-on-one with Mr. Desikachar and his wife Menaka (Vedic Chanting), observing therapeutic classes at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram (KYM) and participating in group trainings by long time students of Mr. Desikachar.

Chase lives in Marin County, just North of San Francisco with his wife Elizabeth. His teaching style is warm, funny and engaging (with lots of practical examples) that appeals to every level of yoga practitioner from beginner to advanced.
