The heart is a fascinating organ, physically it is in the centre of your internal world and is housed in the ‘space’ of your emotions and spirit side. The heart function has been underestimated and science has discovered that the heart is more powerful and integral in your life that you might previously have known. The heart communicates with the body and brain via hormones, nervous system, pulse waves and electromagnetic fields and research has found that there are more neural pathways leading to the brain from the heart than the other way around.
From the Yogic perspective, asana, pranayama, meditation and chanting all have a direct effect on the heart and heart functions. Megan will lead you on a journey to bring you back to your heart. Be willing to fall in love from the inside.

Yoga offers many ways for you to get to know yourself and to break down the barriers that you set up between yourself and the rest of the world. Chanting, which is part of the Bhakti tradition of yoga, offers a pathway that by-passes the mind, giving a direct experience of the heart. The residue being a stilled and silent mind and an expanded and blissful heart.
Megan fell in love with chanting in 1992, and has had some of her most profound healing experiences through mantra and kirtan. Chanting is not about the quality of your voice, its about the energy and feelings that pulse through your being.
It helps to know that your voice and your energy are uniquely yours and when you offer them up to the collective energy around you, you create waves of energy that go around the room and then spiral out and out and out. And if chanting isn’t your thing, just listen and hum…..Jai Shiva
