The Chorus Method

So…how does Chorus work?

The Chorus Method makes it easier to calm the mind by starting off with concrete and tangible objects of focus (breath, beat, teacher’s voice, tingles ✨) so that when we move into the traditional meditation on the back half of class, our mind is actually able to enter a calm state vs. wrestling to get quiet. You know the feeling when trying to FORCE yourself into a meditative state …yeah, we want to avoid that! 😉

You can think of the rhythmic “belly, chest, release” breathing as the “warm up” for the mind strengthening. Just like a physical workout, the warm up loosens the body up and gets the blood flowing so when you do the exercises they are more effective.

Once we’ve created space in the mind by using the power of the breath coupled with the music, we can effortlessly sink into that calm state we all love, and effectively strengthen our mind, by the end of class. 

As we breathe, we are literally moving oxygen around in ways that help our physical bodies on the molecular level, and carve out the space in the mind so we can do the work of strengthening those “mind muscles.” 

By adding Chorus to your routine on a frequent and consistent basis (we recommend at least 2 classes per week) you will feel tangible benefits outside of class like  improved mental clarity, mood, focus, and sleep, and with  time greater overall fulfillment in your life.

Now…let’s do it!

Making Mindfulness Practices Part of Your Self-Care

At Chorus, we don’t just practice mindfulness because it feels good, we do it because it is good for our actual health; the health of our bodies, our mental health, and our relationships. 

We all know we need to exercise our bodies (shout out to our favorite quarantine workout classes!), but our culture is not as attentive to exercising our minds through mindfulness practices. As part of the mindfulness movement, we’re here to change that – Chorus is like a mind workout, and it takes practice! 

With practice, meditation can improve your physical health, cognitive abilities, happiness, and sense of connection! Check out our blog on How Meditation Actually Benefits the Brain and this article on 12 Science-Based Benefits of Meditation to learn more. 

Not convinced meditation is your thing? We get it, meditation can be hard – but it doesn’t have to be! It can both feel good and be good for you. We started Chorus to bring you a new way to meditate that feels great from your very first session. Our unique combination of active breathing techniques, meditation and music help you reconnect to your body and ease your mind.

We set our classes to the beat of energizing music while supportive teachers guide you towards greater clarity and peace of mind. We promise that you’ll be able to find the quiet space between your thoughts more easily than with traditional meditation practices you’re thinking of – this is meditation, kinda.
