Among the many tools that are available in Yoga and Yoga Therapy, the use of sound when chanting in Sanskrit holds a special place for the yogin-s of the past and the present. Sanskrit is an ancient phonetic language which utilises the power of sound vibrations. Vedic chants in Sanskrit are said to have been received by sages when they were in deep meditation. These chants have been handed down through an oral tradition for thousands of years.
This seminar will provide opportunities to learn some Vedic Healing chants. No prior experience is necessary and is open to all. The rules of chanting and pronunciation will be introduced during the seminar under the guidance of a very experienced teacher, Menaka Desikachar. We will honour the tradition of ancient teachers using the process of adhyayanam – listening to the teacher and then repeating the chant. We will also do a yoga practice each day that combines the use of chant with simple asana and breathing.
Menaka Desikachar will also be available for private Yoga Therapy consultations during her visit. Through these sessions, consistent with the traditional teaching of Yoga, you can benefit by receiving an individidualized and holistic daliy practice, that will be suitable for your health and wellness needs. Alternatively you could also book her for a private chanting class. Cost of consultation will be $120. In order to know the time slots available and to pre-register for these, kindly contact The Dunedin Yoga Studio. Since only a limited number of places are available, it is advisable to pre-register for these. Each private may last between 30-45 minutes depending on the need.
Menaka Desikachar may be assisted by some of the senior teachers in this tradition during the seminars and also in some of the private sessions. These teachers include Sacha Kronfeld, Ruth Diggins and Evelyn Einhaeuser.
At the end of the month we will change our prices to a current New Zealand standard for good yoga teaching and that honours the practice of yoga. For our general prices this is a rise, however, as we do so we will be giving prospective first-timer students a golden opportunity to try our classes for a very special price of $39 for 3 weeks of classes and giving our regular students the opportunity to take a 12-month membership with a $23 per week A/P going out instead of by monthly passes. If your yoga practice fits this scenario, you could end up paying less per month than previously! More importantly, by committing to a year membership you will be placing more import on your dedicated yoga practice and your yoga studio.
If you want to get a super deal before our prices change on the 27th, buy your year pass for just $990 or pay for a month or 10-class concession before then.

Rite of Passage: Into the Arms of Beauty is a 6 hour workshop that initiates the creation of a personal Rite of Passage. This workshop kick-starts an 8 month process that is engineered to release personal and ancestral baggage in order to create a greater bandwidth and access to SELF – Soul Evolved Life Force.
“The inspiration for my workshop comes from a Hawaiian book called Tales of the Night Rainbow by Koko Willis and Pali Jae Lee. The original Mo’o clans of the Hawaiian islands believe we are each born with a bowl of perfect light – and it is our job to tend to our bowl of perfect light.”
When: Sat 5th of March, 9:30am-4pm
Where: Araiteuru Marae, 24 Shetland Street, Wakari, Dunedin
