In the Science of Naad Yoga, we talk about the powerful effect that chanting has on the body and in the being through the stimulation of the structures of the brain, including the vagus nerve, the hypothalamus gland, and the pineal gland. In this session, Dr. Japa Kaur will explore the physiological and transformative effect of chanting by discussing how chanting awakens compassion in these structures and throughout the body.
