'Dhyana' contains three guided meditations which help to restore a centered state of Self awareness and facilitate healing. These guided meditations produce a deep state of relaxation. In this relaxed state, healing happens naturally and effortlessly. Repeated use of the meditations cultivates the ability to be present in the here and now and flow easily with life.
Chandra recorded these meditations at the request of students in her classes, and the soothing words and music are sure to release stress and negative thoughts, helping to quiet the mind, preparing for deep meditation.
Chandra has been a student of Yoga, meditation, sacred ritual and psycho-spiritual therapies since the early nineties. She is the founder and director of the North Carolina School of Yoga and has spent the last 10 years of her life in service to humanity, disseminating the ancient knowledge of how to achieve radiant health and spiritual development. Chandra was born in Miami, and raised in New York, where she met her Guru and Teacher, Sri Dharma Mittra. After intense study and practice of the eight limbs of Yoga, she was accepted and initiated by Sri Dharmaji as Chandra Om (meaning â€˜Moonâ€™, â€˜Luminousâ€™, â€˜Bright and Shiningâ€™), and remains with him to this day. She was initiated into the family as a religious student who devotes herself to her teacher and the practice of spiritual disciplinesâ€”one who renounces the world in order to achieve liberation.
This is the greatest of blessings, to be accepted by the Guru and be fully charged with his aura and grace, showered in love, compassion, thoughts of renunciation, Self-realization, surrender to the Lord and fortitude. Realizing this spiritual knowledge can only be imparted psychically, mentally and mostly spiritually. She has been loyally teaching the Yamas and Niyamas through daily practice of Hatha-Raja Yoga, and has always made herself available for students who need her help and direction at all times. In 2002, Chandra founded the North Carolina School of Yoga to provide serious aspirants with an opportunity to deepen their own spiritual sadhana, starting many on the path of teaching Yoga. She does not teach â€˜stylesâ€™ of Yoga, but the traditional, classical Raja Yogic tradition that has been personally taught to her by Sri Dharmaji, and strives to remain truthful to the traditional teachings of the science of Yoga. Chandra has initiated hundreds of students to practice Yoga and teaches solely as an offering to her Guru and to all spiritual aspirants. The North Carolina School of Yoga is the ONLY school in the world certifying students solely in Sri Dharma Mittraâ€™s approach and method of Yoga. Through the genius of these methods, students can progress rapidly.
In 2006, she released her second CD, a collection of Mantras learned in the presence of her Guru. Amber is currently Director of the North Carolina School of Yoga and itâ€™s Teacher Training Programs in Raleigh, NC. She travels around the world, teaching workshops, classes and intensives to share the knowledge of Yoga.
Yogini Chandra Om embodies and imparts the virtues of Yoga; kindness, patience, humility, fortitude, humor, selfless service, ahimsa (non-killing), and unlimited love, compassion and understanding for all. Her approach incorporates all of the traditional aspects of Yoga including a sincere respect for both the physical and spiritual aspects of the practice. Chandra is a beloved teacher known for her passionate, dynamic and inspirational style of teaching and emphasizes â€˜complete surrender to the Lord. Without this, there will be no success in Yogaâ€™
