About the Mantras:
Blue Spirit Wheel brings their unique style of mantra chanting into yoga classes to create a new, deeper level of energy resonance for everyone in the room! Accompanied by harmonium, swaramandala (a 36-string Indian harp), and light percussion, Ian Boccio and Stephanie Kohler’s voices blend together in trance-like soundscapes that allow the vibration of sacred mantras to fill the space. Students have often described unusually blissful experiences and new revelations about their yoga practice that have emerged during a class that featured Blue Spirit Wheel’s chanting. We invite you to come and discover new levels of consciousness with us!
The Planetary Alignment, a series of mantras designed to balance the subtle energies and celestial forces! The planets in Vedic Astrology, which include the Sun and the Moon, plus the two nodes of the ecliptic, have been affecting our lives constantly since we were born, directing the flow of our karma and creating both good and bad circumstances in our lives. The astrologers of ancient India discovered particular mantra vibrations that could amplify the effect of these planetary energies. They also understood the relationship between particular planets and certain deities, known as planetary rulers, who can mitigate the negative effects. By combining the nine planetary mantras with the mantras of the ruling deities into a single vibrational tapestry, a complete balancing of a person’s energy system can be achieved, resulting in a more smooth flow of energy throughout all aspects of life. When combined with asana practice, this becomes a powerful method for manifesting those energies in the physical world!
