Many meditation practices utilise breath awareness and mantra to beneficial effect. Ajapa Japa takes these fundamentals further in also
channeling the breath along inner subtle pathways, allowing the awareness to sink deeper. It primarily uses the natural mantra of the breath - So Ham
- alongside ujjayi pranayama and khechari mudra. The synthesis of breath, mantra and pathway is profound in its simplicity and brings a of deepening of self-awareness, illuminating the deeper levels of mind, and drawing us closer to the timeless present moment.Click here

) that spans all the spinal chakras, from mooladhara (root centre) at the base to agya (third eye) in the head. Prerequisite
