Yoga Student Teacher Prayer

This is a prayer that we chant before the Sanskrit/Philosophy/Pranayama portion with our teacher Kathryn Payne in the 500-hour Yoga Teacher Training at Pacific Yoga.

Sanskrit:
oṃ saha nāvavatu
saha nau bhunaktu
saha vīryaṃ karavāvahai
tejasvi nāvadhī tamastu mā vidviṣāvahai
oṃ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ

English:
May we be protected together.
May we be nourished together.
May we create strength among one another.
May our study be filled with light.
May we not oppose each other.
Om peace, peace, peace.
