Ganesha Mantra

Om Gam Ganpataye Namah

This is the Mantra dedicated to the Lord Ganesha.

Ganesha is one of the more popular and well known Hindu deities.  He is the one with the elephant head, and known to be the remover of obstacles and negativity.  So chanting the mantra dedicated to him “Om Gam Ganpataye Namah is known to ward off obstacles and negativity.  It is recommended to chant it at the beginning of new projects, new work or a new life stage.

You will also get benefits from hearing the mantra or writing it.

It is translated as:

” I bow down to the almighty Lord Ganesha with all my existence and I accept all his great qualities in myself. ”

Sit or stand in a comfortable position and start to breathe softly and slowly.  When you are ready, begin to chant.  Find your rhythm, your tone, your speed.  Allow the chanting to be joyful and light, without any strain. Give attention to how it feels to chant, rather than whether you get the ‘lyrics’ or the rhythm right.

It is recommended to chant at least 11 times.  Multiples of 108 are considered best.

Have fun with this and pay attention to how you feel, during and after.  Enjoy!

Namaste, Bettina

Yin Yoga and Crystal Bowl Sound Meditation – Masterclass of Relaxation

Friday, 25th August | 18:00 – 20:00 | $30

YIN: 1hr
Yin yoga is a quiet, slow-paced and mostly floor based form of yoga, where yoga poses (asanas) are held for a longer period of time to stimulate the deeper layers of connective tissue.

You will be invited to let go of all muscular effort, allow yourself to come into a pose, be supported by bolsters, blocks and blankets and feel a stretch-like sensation that varies in intensity depending on your own personal preference and physical state of being. You will be encouraged to use your breath to soften, calm and quiet your mind and with that the intensity of the physical sensation.

This is a wonderfully relaxing and flexibility increasing style of yoga

CRYSTAL BOWL SOUND MEDITATION: 1hr
As you make yourself comfortable either sitting or lying down, you can completely let go of all sensation, thought or worry and allow the week that was to simply be as it was.

You will be experiencing a deep sense of physical relaxation and calmness of mind while you are completely immersed in the sound and vibrations of the crystal singing bowls.

A deeply healing and relaxing meditation modality.

Here in our MASTERCLASS, we will explore 60mins of YIN YOGA, followed by 60mins of SOUND MEDITATION.

A fabulous way to let go of the week and start the weekend with intent, clarity and calm.

Although this is an additional service for The Art of Balance client community, everyone is welcome.

No yoga or meditation experience is required.

COST: $30
DATE: Friday, 25th August 2017, 18:00 – 20:00

Yin_yoga_master

Yin yoga is a quiet, slow-paced and mostly floor based form of yoga, where yoga poses (asanas) are held for a longer period of time. It is a wonderfully relaxing and flexibility increasing yoga style.
Yin Yoga is based on the Daoist principles of yin & yang and aims to work on the yin tissues of the body, the connective tissues, namely joints, tendons, ligaments, bones and fascia.

In this 90 minute class you will be invited to let go of all muscular effort, allow yourself to come into a pose, be supported by bolsters, blocks and blankets and feel a stretch-like sensation that varies in intensity depending on your own personal preference and physical state of being. You will be encouraged to use your breath to soften, calm and quiet your mind and with that the intensity of the physical sensation.
Yoga Nidra is a systematic approach to calming the mind and bring about relaxation as efficient as deep sleep.  It is more than simply a body scan or body sensing.  It is delivered as a guided meditation.

Here in our MASTERCLASS, we will explore 90mins of YIN YOGA, followed by 30mins of guided meditation, YOGA NIDRA.

A fabulous way to end the week and start the weekend with intent, clarity and calmness.

All welcome.
