Chanting is integral to Sivananda yoga. It is a very effective technique to connect the various aspects of self to the greater self. It brings harmony to the personal energy field, by soothing and calming. By extension the surrounding ambience is grounded. Often a sense of connection with universal energy is experienced.

I open and close each Yoga session with a short chant in Sanskrit. You are encouraged to join in, though it is not compulsory! Listening alone brings benefits.

As many students have expressed the wish to learn these chants I have provided them here. You can listen direct or download them.

I express much appreciation to Jeremy Macleod, both for Chanting with me (how low can you go!), and recording them for us.

  • I started my yoga journey with Angie in 2020 initially this was virtual (beginner’s class) and then in person at the glorious Charlton Park.  Having relocated to Ireland a few months ago, I have continued my Monday night restorative yoga via zoom.  I am a working mum with four young children so Monday nights have become my sanctuary, a time for calm, reflection, stretch, breath, strength and re energising.  I wish every night was Monday night!

    I have also been fortunate enough to have 1:1 with Angie via zoom, which has proved priceless in managing my stress and energy levels at work.

    Angie is a wonderfully calm, warm, intuitive, professional and knowledgeable therapist.  I feel extremely lucky to have found her.  


  • I really enjoyed having a yoga consultation with Angela. It was wonderful to learn simple techniques to help me improve posture and alignment within my body, which helps to alleviate tension.    Angela is a very intuitive, insightful yoga teacher, who I would highly recommend. 

  • I joined Angela’s yoga classes in the autumn '20 and Angela made the transition to Zoom easy for us all.

    I enjoy the classes which explore posture, balance, breathing and relaxation. 

    I definitely feel the benefits

  • Thank you for being you. You have helped me in ways you will never know. 

  • ...the perfect class. If I were an alien and had landed from outer space to there, I would have been pretty darn chuffed...Some people are just born to do things and a yoga class with Angela Oakes makes you feel like everything is well with the world. It's so peaceful at The HolistiCentre...

  • ...The whole body is exercised, every joint, every muscle. There are brief periods of relaxation to allow the body to benefit from the posture & prepare for the next.
    The atmosphere is quiet & calm, a mood partly generated by a short opening chant in Sanskrit.
    There is a longer period of relaxation at the end & I leave with a straight back, head held high & a composure with which to face the day.

  • In taking a yoga class led by Angie I had the amazing sensation of relaxing while exercising! She's a powerful and experienced teacher, able to lead students through poses with just the right amount of challenge; I never got to that "stressed" place I sometimes experience with other teachers, yet I felt I was getting a good workout. I also enjoyed the spiritual energies she brings to the class, which fed me on a number of levels beyond just the physical. I left the class feeling both energized and peaceful, almost as though I'd had a massage! I highly recommend yoga with Angie.

  • I'm completely hooked. Early mornings are generally grim, but now I can get up and stretch! It's awesome! After each class there's a huge sense of relaxation yet with new energy for the next day. No regrets!

  • The class has a friendly atmosphere and Angela cheerfully provides for a wide age range and the varying levels of ability.
