Chakra Yoga is an interesting and comprehensive practice of yoga that involves 9 forms of yoga and many different practices to increase health and well-being. So along with the Hatha Yoga on the mat, we also study and practice the use of sound, and then observe its effect on the body. We use sounds, chants, seed sounds, and mantras intended to have a certain effect. This ancient practice can be found in many cultures dating back even before the 5000+ year history of yoga of India as there are some who say that sound was used as a tool in Ancient Egypt. It is interesting to even consider how we call the immensity in which we live the uni verse… the one song.
We live in a world full of sound, and rarely do we take into account its impact, let alone begin to use sound for health and well-being. Even our innermost thoughts are a type of sound seeing that we “hear” them on the inside. Perhaps you can sense how the quality and type of thoughts have an impact on the body. This is slowly becoming much more accepted by mainstream medicine.
So all that aside, I just wanted to share this super interesting video about the use of sound, and how it has been shown to literally destroy cancer cells.
