A Fun Mantra to Help Remove Obstacles.
This is one of many mantras to Ganesh, the elephant headed deity who is said to remove obstacles. There are many variations, melodies, and methods but this is one that I learned from my Sri Vidya Tantra teacher, Psalm Isadora.
It can be chanted silently 108 times or loudly with drums while you dance. Do whatever works for you. Ganesh is said to live in our first chakra, the muladhara chakra, which is the principle on which the manifestation of primordial Divine Force rests. This energy, otherwise known as Shakti, is the manifesting energy of the Universe. When this energy is awakened through breath, mantra and drum, it can inspire courage in otherwise challenging times.
This is a quick and condensed version of the mantra to awaken your energy – OM GAM GANAPATAYE NAMAHA – which I like to loosely (and playfully) translate to: “Yo wake up Root chakra, lift that energy so I can remove my obstacles. Yeah!”
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“I can’t say enough positive things about Gigi and the way she treats people, gives her full attention, and makes you feel really seen, felt, and heard. It is so refreshing to find a yoga teacher who is real and grounded and full of fire.”
“Brigitte is a powerful and necessary voice of inclusion, positivity and love in today’s world. She evenly holds space for all points of view and with her quiet strength, she propels the yoga world forward.”
“Gigi brings peace into every room she walks into. As a teacher her calming, kind presence can make you forget about whatever else is in the outside world.”
“Gigi is amazing! She is a well rounded, intuitive, and empowering Yoga Instructor. She knows how to read her students and provide them with what they need in that moment.”
“One of the most positive and fun people I have ever met, Gigi’s classes are filled with self-acceptance and non-judgement. Such a genuine soul who desires to have a lasting impact on everyone who takes her class, Gigi makes time for everyone whether that’s with returning a phone call or spending time in the lobby after class. ”
“Gigi’s classes are very soulful and caring. She really invests her heart into her teaching and as a student you feel that. I always walk away from her classes feeling more in touch and more accepting of myself.”
