121 Online Viniyoga of Sounding and Chanting eStudy Module One Professional

The role of this eModule is not to train students as Chant teachers although the Art of Sound and Chanting Module will obviously enhance any Yoga teacher’s skills in the area of Psychology and Therapeutic Healthcare.

In fact, not everybody wants to or actually needs to become a Chant teacher to further their practice and study. Here the priorities are towards personal development and thus questions relating to our personal practice and study are the priorities. This module reflects this viewpoint.

“Abhyāsa, when performed with reverence, without interruption, over a long period of time, will result in a healthy body, acute senses and extraordinary alertness.”
– T Krishnamacharya

The aim is that we are all here in this course as students and it offers an opportunity for all teachers to step back from their teaching role and re-enhance their personal study and practice path.
