Pranava Yoga (OM Yoga/OM Yoga Meditation) refers to classical Meditation as described in the Bhagavad Gita, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjli and the Upanishads. It is a method of focusing on the hum of the mantra, “om” or “aum,” which is repeated alongside the breath. “Aum” is believed to be the sound from which the universe was created, and Pranava Yoga strives to help practitioners establish a connection to creation and unity. Pranava Yoga teaches that once this union is understood, we become liberated from limitations and suffering.
What to expect
During a Pranava Yoga class, students can expect an extensive practice of mantra, which constitutes repetition of the same verbal sounds with the aim of producing a specific psychological or physical effect in the one who repeats it.
Pranava Yoga was developed based on the belief that “aum” is the sound from which the universe was created. The discipline is based on the meditation described in the Bhagavad Gita, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and the Upanishads.
