The Inner Yoga

Speaking to Kali Natha Yoga students and teachers, Ma explains that yoga creates more space in the body, especially the heart center. Into this space comes sound, in the form of mantra or chanting, bringing even greater opening. Ma also demonstrates the Breath of Intention, a combination of chanting and breath which can bring us closer to our spiritual Beloved. This podcast offers insight for the practitioners of any yoga, or the devotees of any path.
