Mountain Yoga is very pleased to present a rare opportunity to spend an evening with lifelong chanter Ganesh Mohan visiting the Bay Area from his home in Chennai, India. He will share how a mantra acquires life through a personal practice of mantra japa and brings about pure psyche and peace of mind. The discussion will include insights on choosing a mantra and cultivating the associated feeling and attitude. Chanting will include opening invocation and sample mantra practice, e.g. ‘om namaha.’
Ganesh Mohan is the son of A.G. Mohan, a dedicated, personal student of the great 20th century “father of modern yoga,” Krishnamacharya for over eighteen years, and Indra Mohan, a teacher of yoga for over 35 years. Ganesh began practicing yoga and Vedic chanting as a child under the guidance of his parents and has continued to develop and deepen his understandings since then.
Ganesh is also a doctor, trained in both modern medicine and Ayurveda. He is an advisor to the International Association of Yoga Therapists in the US and has taught at workshops, conferences, and yoga trainings in countries such as the US, Germany, Australia, and Singapore. He is the co-author of the Mohans' book, Yoga Therapy (2004), and Krishnamacharya: His Life and Teachings (2010). He is also deeply interested in the profound wisdom of yoga philosophy and psychology, which he continues to study and teach.
