For those wanting more of a chance to practice or listen to the chant – the invocation to Patanjali – that Elizabeth leads at the beginning of each class, here are a couple of choices from Youtube.

In this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14HIfxNj_yY there’s an American guy who pretty much walks you through what we do in the beginning of class, how to sit, how position your knees and hips, and then he chants aum three times and does the chant, very similarly to how Elizabeth does it, with sanskrit words scrolling across the screen.

In this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5SAf6LbJ7E there are various colorful images and in a voiceover an Indian woman sings the chant. It’s very pretty to look at and her voice is pleasant and it’s a nice variant to experience.
