OM is an ancient mantra, a primordial vibration (definition: prīˈmôrdēəl ~ existing at or from the beginning of time). It is so old that its very nature is innately sacred. In many of our classes we start and end by chanting three (3) OMs to create harmony and unity within the class.
Our classes always end with the teacher and students reciting the word Namaste. Simply said, Namaste means: “The Light in Me Honors The Light in You.” Reciting Namaste enables individuals to come together energetically, to a place of connection.
