Learning Vedic Chanting is open to all.  Students of chanting come from a variety of backgrounds, people without yoga experience, yoga students and teachers.  Anyone can benefit from the healing sound of Vedic mantras.  Chanting classes are conducted seated, either on the floor or on a chair.  It is important to feel comfortable so that the focus is only on the mantras.


Debby is my chant teacher. I hear from Debby things that I simply don’t hear from other teachers. It’s not that they don’t say the same or similar things but I hear it from Debby. She is precise, clear and inspiring with her teaching. Her attention to detail is transmitted with grace and integrity. In a nutshell, she is a fabulous teacher and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
