Ashtanga Closing Chant

22 Oct

Julia has been teaching us chants in class lately. I know the opening chant now, but I am currently trying to learn the closing chant.  It’s very amusing to hear myself stumble constantly over the words in the early morning!

    Thanks for pulling together these resources! I know a few people who are trying to learn the chant, and I just shared your post on the Facebook page. 🙂

    Thanks for the list! I really like how different people phrase, speak and sing it differently. Same words and perhaps the same intention; totally different interpretation. Appreciate it.
