Focus of the Month: May



May is for Mantra. The word manas refers to the mind and tra refers to an instrument. Mantra, then, is an instrument for the mind, a palpable method of ‘making our mind into an ally’. When we get literally LINKED IN to sacred sounds and slocums that have been repeated by seekers like ourselves for thousands of years we might find ourselves spontaneously joyous! This month we invite you to explore Mantra in your personal practice off the mat. Try humming Lokah Samasta to yourself while waiting on a particularly difficult line, or in a moment when the conditioned response to external events calls for something drastic. Special times require special measures. Sing a song over and over until it becomes embedded. Wake up singing, go to bed singing and share the chants that are meaningful to you. We will try to sing along!

We welcome you to Jaya with open hearts and open minds. We are committed to the highest quality multidimensional yogic offerings and to a continued presence in the neighborhoods we serve.
