We had many new students in class this morning, and as we were practising the Iyengar style of yoga, I opened the class with the Invocation to Patanjali. Which would have been fine had I just gone ahead and chanted on my own. However, in the spirit of learning and sharing, I tried to do it Ashtanga style where the class repeats each line after the teacher says it. It went utterly pear-shaped about halfway through as I forgot the lines, and so I quietly moved on amidst a few chuckles and snickers.

Invocation to Pantanjalil
Interested in learning more about the invocations chanted at the beginning of class? Iyengar Yoga classes typically open with chanting OM three times, followed by two invocations to show respect for our lineage. The invocation to Patanjali acknowledges the ancient sage credited with compiling the Yoga Sutras. Chanting with feeling and purpose is a powerful way to add depth to our yogic practices. The inner vibrations generated from chanting help to erode the obstacles the distract the mind and unsteady the body. Let us bow before the noblest of sages, Patanjali, who gave yoga for serenity and sanctity of mind, grammar for clarity and purity of speech, and medicine for perfection of health. Let us prostrate before Patanjali, an incarnation of Adisesa, whose upper body has a human form, whose arms hold a conch and a disc, and who is crowned by a thousand-headed cobra. Where there is yoga, there is prosperity and bliss with freedom.
Start your yoga with mantras, Chanting mantras is a wonderful way to start a yoga practice as the body benefits from the vibrations and the mind is solely focussed on the task.
