Yogis chant sanskrit verses and words. The verses can help as a way to keep time with how long to stay in an Asana  (physical posture).

I have cured many of my own headaches with chanting or singing.

There are many opportunities to chant outside of yoga too. Chanting is central to any protest march. And when you chant with a group you feel a great connection. Protests are an important way to demand change for oppressed groups. six reasons why protest is so important

My favorite group yoga classes usually include some chanting. Often we chant OM (pronounced AUM).

I am a yoga teacher, and an electrician. I write a yoga blog, and I teach yoga classes online. My other blog is called End Lockdowns. In a democracy we accept that people have different opinions, and we allow those opinions to be voiced. My opinion which is that lockdowns are not scientific, and do not create healthy communities. The medical community at one point knew that informed consent was an important value. Currently the medical community has been split and there is a vocal part of it that thinks there are no issues with coercion and force in medicine. The part of the medical community that believes in mandating medical procedures and segregation is currently promoted through social media and other big tech. We are seeing a huge shift in wealth as a result. Poverty does not make people healthier. I do not think using force and coercion in medicine is a health promoting way to function. In the future, this will fail. It is only a matter of when. "Teach what is inside you, not as it applies to you, to yourself, but as it applies to the other." Yogacarya Sri T Krishnamacharya
