What is Vocal Yoga ?

We all know  ‘ yoga is a reunion with God’  &  we practice it through –  ‘Body,  Breath,
and  Mind ‘  in many ways when we connect through ‘Sound’  that is by singing, we
release our subtle deep emotions through the harmony of musical notes that remain
always unexpressed within us in the chors of life because not every emotion can be
expressed in the words or language of daily communication and working life. Our
Singing and Voice is linked with our consciousness.
In a body-instrument full of sensation from ‘head-to-toe’, that is our Vocal Cords
which vibrate with our overall emotional and psychological well-being and reflect
it through our voice , and also creates a conscious relationship with Other parts of
the body that serve the voice , like naval, diaphragm ,pelvic, thorasic, throat, head,
jaws, mandible and maxilla, palate, tongue, sternum
These parts remain unconscious for most of the people . and become home, for the
emotions ignored , that turns into a bloked energy later in life. vocal yoga bring
consciousness in these parts of our body.

Preksha meditaion – Perception vs. Thoughts

Our conscious mind is capable of two function, viz thinking and
perceiving but one either thinks or perceives at a time. Let us
understand it with the following example :
if one concentrates in perceiving any external object he finds his
mind’s steadiness and chain of thoughts almost disappear ,
similarly when one concentrates on the perception of one’s own
internal phenomena such as sensation ,vibration, or even thoughts one
will realize that the mind has stopped rolling in the thoughts from past
and future and is fully engaged in perception.
In the Preksha meditation perception always means experience devoid
of the duality of like and dislike. when the experience is contaminated
with pleasure and pain and like and dislike perception loses its
primary position.

The purpose of the practice of Preksha meditation
is to purify the Mental States of one. Mind is constantly choked by
contaminating urges, emotions, and passions. These all hampers the
flow of wisdom when the mind is cleanced, balance of mind ,
equanimity and the state of well being is experienced simultaneously.
so this practice also has precious therapeutic value
