What’s the point of om-ing in yoga class? —Ke­rina

Women's Health (Malaysia) - - ASK ANYTHING -

A / First of all, there’s the ben­e­fit of bring­ing the group to­gether in a way that al­lows ev­ery­one to par­tic­i­pate with­out wor­ry­ing about stand­ing out. The om also serves to rit­u­alise the time you’re spend­ing and is a way of ded­i­cat­ing your­self to the prac­tice: You are car­ing for your­self and tun­ing out the noise of daily life.

Plus, the ac­tual sound and vi­bra­tion you make when you chant om is the same vi­bra­tional fre­quency that, ac­cord­ing to sa­cred ge­om­e­try—a se­quence of math­e­mat­i­cal pat­terns that re­oc­cur through­out na­ture—is in ev­ery­thing and is sup­posed to have emo­tional heal­ing prop­er­ties. There­fore, through mak­ing this sound, we are con­nect­ing to ev­ery­thing in the uni­verse.

Phys­i­cally, the ac­tual vi­bra­tion the sound pro­duces in your body slows the mind and calms the ner­vous sys­tem. Try feel­ing and sens­ing the peace in your body af­ter you chant—and see what the ben­e­fits may be for you.
