The Veda-s are the oldest and most foundational texts of yoga philosophy. Vedic Chant is a particular style of chanting that focuses on a direct experience of tapas (intensity) and dhāranā (concentration). Using the same methods of instruction that have been passed down for hundreds of generations, learning Vedic Chant is an exploration of listening and sound, and an integrating experience for body, mind and breath. The ancient texts are beautiful and inspiring, and the act of chanting brings life to this study, as well as to the person listening and reciting.

A Bit About Our Studio
Dave and Cheryl Oliver
Authentic Yoga & Authentic Yoga Teacher Training was created by Dave & Cheryl Oliver in 2010. Our practice, teaching and philosophy is based on presenting students with direct experiences of yoga, and to make the practice applicable and accessible all. Our foundation and first love is the astanga vinyasa system, and we honor all schools and systems. We encourage students to read, to contemplate, to question, to challenge our preconceptions, to refine our physical practice, to expand our minds, and to open our hearts. Dave made his transition in November, 2014, and while his physical presence is no longer with us, his spirit & his legacy live on.
