Day 27 Session 02: Mouna (Silence) as a Yoga Sadhana Paradigm by Adinarayanan & Smrithi Adinarayanan

About the Session

Mouna is not just verbal silence but quietening of vrittis of the chiita and hence the culmination of Yogic practice. This session would be approaching Mouna from a multi-dimensional perspective including neuroscience, epigenetics, psychology and yogic sciences. The session will be drawing insights from the personal mouna tapasya experiences of the speakers.
