The Mundaka Upanishad belongs to the Atharva Veda and has three chapters, each of which has two sections. The name is derived from the root ‘mund’ (to shave) as he that comprehends the teaching of the Upanishad is liberated from error and ignorance. The Upanishad clearly states the distinction between the higher knowledge of the Supreme Brahman and the lower knowledge of the empirical world. The Mandukya Upanishad belongs to the Atharva Veda and is an exposition of the principle of Aum as consisting of three elements, a, u, m which may be used to experience the soul itself. It contains twelve verses that delineate four levels of consciousness: walking, dreaming, deep sleep, and a fourth mystical state of being one with the soul.

When muscles become chronically contracted from misuse, physical and emotional stress, and injury and trauma, the body becomes imbalanced. Years of adjusting to these changes can lead to pain in the neck, back, hips, knees, and shoulders. These problems are not due to structural weaknesses in the body but to sensory-motor amnesia which can be corrected. Once the muscles are relaxed and balanced through a series of exercises “Somatics,” posture and functioning return to normal, flexibility returns, and you often feel more energetic. Come and experience Somatic movement…learn the exercises that can change your life.
