I am grateful and delighted to offer numerous virtual offerings in 2021 and beyond.

It has been a vision for many years to offer e-courses and expand the virtual network.  The possibilities are endless!  Covid-19 challenged so many of us to re-vamp our entire lives.  When I returned from my travels in March 2020,  all of my work as I knew it was GONE.  Live performances,  teaching one-on-one music lessons,  teaching in yoga studios,  guiding retreats … all evaporated.  And so,  I delved into the virtual world with a mission.

Thankfully,  I had already been work ing on Mantra and The Yoga of Sound for Teachers & Seekers 8 Week e-course a deep labor of love that will be forever available and also offered as part of advanced yoga teacher trainings.  Lalita: The Goddess of Erotic Spirituality and Bliss 6 Month Immersion is going to be an incredible journey,  co-facilitated with my dear friend and teacher Tara Cindy Sherman.

So much more coming down the channel including popular series Yoga for Absolute Beginners who want to know what the fuss is all about,  a 14 Day Easy Vegan Transition co-facilitated with Dr. Shawna Weaver,  and Yoga for Neurotic Artists e-course.   Thanks so much for checking out these offerings!  If you’re interested in learning music or yoga virtually,  please consult my teaching pages on yoga or music lessons.  Thank you so much for checking out these offerings!

Warmly,
Mary

We cannot wait to practice with you!

Mantras are vehicles for transformation and deeper connection to that which is divine within us. Loosely translated, Manas means mind, tra means instrument. When working with mantras, we are utilizing an ancient tool to focus and refine the mind, calm and soothe its random fluctuations, linking to our breath, and tuning into our infinite wellspring of creativity, peace, and hope.

In this training we will explore these ancient symbolic sounds, words, and phrases. Using the art of listening, we will delve into multiple forms of mantra: Vedic, Tantric, Bhakti, and the Yoga of Sound – Nada Yoga – which surrounds and informs all three.

With respect and gratitude to whence this practice came, growing up alongside Hatha Yoga and evolving to be shared with people of all castes, eventually traveling across oceans to grace other lands and hearts. We will discuss how to incorporate mantra into public and private classes as well as our personal practice, with reverence and attention to cultural sensitivity.

We will touch upon:

  • The power of sound and music
  • Creating a holistic personal practice incorporating sound and mantra
  • Learning mantra with the guidance and structure of the major Chakra system
  • Bija (seed syllable) mantra practice
  • Pronunciation of Sanskrit to the best of our ability
  • Chanting of important Yoga Sutras
  • Patanjali invocation and forgiveness chants
  • Energetic effects of sounds
  • Incorporating sound /mantra into teaching
  • Brief history of origins of mantra
  • Discussion of deities & their respective mantras
  • Sound / Silence meditations
  • Physical and neurological effects of mantras
  • Learn mantras for the heart, peace, and the planet

And so much more!
