Free Your Voice: Intro to Chanting & Mantra

August 18 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

In yoga classes, we move our bodies as a way of feeling more awake, aware, and free. Your voice can have the same power. Perhaps you have had a taste of it when chanting OM in yoga class? Or maybe you’ve been to a kirtan, devotional music event, and gotten into the groove. Or perhaps you’re totally new to the mantra world. Welcome!

Mantras are tools to help us relieve the stresses and imbalances in the mind, and to bring ourselves to a focused intention. By chanting, we can create harmony between our mind and the stresses of our modern life. Many people don’t know the power of their own voice until they learn to chant! 

In Free Your Voice: Intro to Chanting & Mantra with Keegan Mills, you will:

  • Learn the benefits, significance, and purpose of 4 mantras that you can use in your daily life
  • Learn to access and express your own unique vocal expression and vibration 
  • Create your own mantra to help you connect to a place of peace within
  • Practice chanting these mantras in a safe and welcoming space
  • Experience the beautiful sound of the harmonium, a traditional Indian instrument for chanting mantra


We will begin with a guided meditation to help us connect to our sacred voice and the energy of the throat chakra. Throughout the workshop, you’ll be guided through a series of mantras with the sounds of the harmonium to support you in finding your own rhythm and experience the benefits of sound healing. All levels of experience are welcome for this workshop – no singing experience necessary! Please bring a small journal if you would like to take notes. You will be provided with handouts of the mantras that we will explore in this workshop.
