Chanting is a meditative practice that links you with a centuries-old tradition and expands your experience of yoga.
At Agama we teach ‘vedic chanting’, a rigorous practice whose principles and rules are transmitted in the traditional way – a student guided by a teacher who is trained in the classical tradition.
All the chants we teach are healing chants – the focus in our tradition is on yogic practices for health and healing.
We also teach a small number of special ‘smrti chants’, that are not from the vedas (the body of knowledge that vedic chants come from), and shorter ‘mantras’ that you can easily use in your practice.
CHANT SERIES DATES We run group classes every couple of months. A series of 1¼ hour-long classes running over 3 to 4 weeks, so you can really learn the chants – practise, revise and sustain what you’ve learnt.
Put these 2020 dates in your diary now, so you can block out the times.

We can also arrange times to suit you. To introduce you to chanting, refine your practice, or build your repertoire of chants. COST for Private classes: $60 an hour.
If you’re new to vedic chanting, before you join a group class, you might like to take a short (1 hour) Introduction to Chanting class. Learn about the notation (we use only 3 notes), the basics of pronunciation (we’re chanting in Sanskrit), and get a feel for the practice. Enquiries please contact Barbara Brian. Bookings can be made online or with any teacher at Agama.
Bookings are essential: Minimum of 5 students required.
