OM- its meaning and significance


OM is considered to be the 'primordial sound'. Even before the material creation came into existence there was only the natural humming energy which resembled the sound of OM. Today, we know that one form of energy can be converted to another form - electricity to sound, electricity to heat, heat to electricity etc.  According to the famous equation by Einstein - E=mc2, all matter is nothing but waves of energy. So, when the 'powers that be' decided to create this material universe, they were able to use the ever-present humming sound vibration of OM to manifest this creation. This same vibration continues to exist all around us and even inside us. The inner sound is given the name "antar-naada" (the inner sound) which can be heard when we can tune in to our pure inner self.

21-Day Yoga Challenge

As I reported in my previous newsletter, the next 21-day yoga challenge will begin next Sunday, June 6. These programs are a great way to experience all aspects of yoga - asana, pranayama, meditation, relaxation, yoga philosophy etc on a daily basis. The students who attended the previous 21-day session reported improved flexibility, strength, balance, better sleep pattern, and an understanding of the deeper meaning and purpose of yoga among some of the benefits of the program. I am planning to continue to offer these sessions on an on-going basis.  Please contact me if you would like to find out more about future sessions.

7-day Pranayama/Meditation Session

We successfully concluded our first 7-day pranayama/meditation session.  As the name suggests, the emphasis in these programs is on pranayama and meditation. Given the very positive and encouraging feedback from the participants in the first session, I plan to offer it again in July. The future programs will be 1.5 hours in duration and will start (most likely) at 6 AM. If you are interested in learning more about it, please contact me.

Following the current trend in social media networking, I have recently created a page for my Integral Yoga Studio on Facebook. Presently, I am still trying to figure out how best to use this page for better communication with other yoga friends and students. One of the benefits that' s mentioned is the ability to start discussion forums where you can post questions, or express your own opinions on topics related to yoga and others can contribute. Please join me on Facebook and let us try to create a rich yoga experience online.
